I thought about today and all of the things that I wanted to say to you. I know that I don't possess your gift for words, but what's comforting to me is that even if I can't always say it, you know what's in my heart. You make me feel like I deserve the things that you do for me and the ways that you love me. I haven't always been used to that. Thank you for showing me, every single day, that love doesn't always have to feel like such a one-way street.
I know that you aren't terribly passionate about Valentine's Day, and you're right. Love should be celebrated all the time, not just on a day set aside by card and candy corporations. Still, I wanted you to have something today, if only in the spirit of things. You're my lover, my best friend, my everything. Thank you for every single moment I get to share with you. I love you, James.
Thank you, also, for being my Valentine.
Happy Valentine's, everyone. I hope it was enjoyable, however you spent it.
