Reader, I have fallen in love with one of the most wonderful people on this planet. I want to tell you this story. I want you to feel what I feel, and see what I see. This person is beautiful, dear reader. They are the most wonderful thing. But I will only tell you this story under one condition: I will not reveal my love's identity until the end. I want you to focus on understanding these words.
The first thing I notice about them is the way their eyes hold the dazzling patterns of sunlight. They dance every which way, landing lightly on me and weakening my knees. Every work of art is reflected in their irises, and all are put to shame. Sometimes, I know, they think their eyes ugly. But darling, they dim even the brightest stars.
Oh, and their smile! The way it flickers across their face, the way their lips part in delight at a joke or a picture or the sound of their favorite song. The quirk of their mouth when they laugh is enough to turn the earth. Please, my love, never hide your smile. The world thrives on such beauty.
They stopped my heart the moment I laid eyes on them. Now imagine what they do to me when they speak. Their voice rolls over me like a soft current, dipping low and then rising so beautifully high before dropping once more. It outshines even the prettiest birdsong. Let everyone hear you speak, my dear. Let us experience the melody of your voice.
They shine like a solitary candle in a sea of darkness. They move mountains with their kindness, and their existence is one of the greatest gifts ever given. Their very presence makes those around them happy, although they don't always see it. They don't see how special, how important, they are to the world.
Are you ready, dear reader? Do you wish to know who has captured my heart in this way? I will tell you. I think it's time you know.
All right, my love.
It's you. You, the one gazing at my words with your magnificent eyes. You, your mouth curving into a smile, set in a straight line, trembling with emotion. You, with your lovely voice and brilliant mind. You, the one the world would not function properly without.
Never forget, my love, that it was always you.
