"you created a new standard and taught me what it means to love"

DEAR KAMILLAH,

I wasn’t looking for anything yet I found everything. While my feelings for you are unparalleled to anything else, I couldn’t exactly say that I fell in love with you. I know, that sounds weird but, it’s true. It’s true because if I would’ve fallen in love with you, it wouldn’t have been as true and genuine.

Of course, I still would have dropped my jaw at every sight of your beautiful self coming around a corner. And yes, I still would have smiled so hard that the my eyes closed shut every single time you made a goofy face or a cute smirk. Rather than falling in love, you created a new standard and taught me what it means to love.

Your caring, selfless, and genuine actions have redefined what it means to me. You’ve reframed love into a balanced trade of acts. To support one another unselfishly, to make each other smile, and to help one another aim to be the best versions of themselves.

Kamillah, my appreciation for you has continued to flow over the bucket of any and all expectations that I could have had for someone. You do what’s right when you’re in the spot light and you do more than you have to when no one is watching; Even if it’s at the expense of your own well being.

I never have, nor will I ever, ask you to be such a support beam for me. I just hope you know that I treasure your acts of genuine care for me and I in turn promise to give you that same amount of effort and affection that you deserve.

You’ve worked for everything you have, just about raised yourself, and proven to be the strongest woman that I’ve ever met. You’ve astonished me with how far you’ve come regardless of your previous circumstances, and I aim to be the person who recognizes you for everything that you’ve done and will do in the future.

I know that I’ve never been loved as much as you love me and I’m even more positive that I never have nor will love someone as much as I continue to love you.

DEAR PASTOR,

Oh my love...where do I start? I could write about you for hours on end. I never thought that I would be lucky enough to meet the man of my dreams at just 18 years old. Some people wait their WHOLE LIFE to find what we have together. To say that I am blessed to be where I am today would be beyond an understatement because you have truly changed my life. You raise me up in my weakest moments and turn them around to make me feel like I’m on top of the world. You are my calm in the craziest of storms, my literal shoulder to cry on, my voice of reason, my greatest supporter, and the love of my life. There are simply no words for the way you make me feel. I am so thrilled to take on life, to grow and to learn with you and I find peace in knowing that whatever craziness life throws at us, we will always have each other to depend on.

Si supieras cuanto te quiero, Pastor Garcia.

All my love,

-K
