"A" is for awkward.
From the day we first met, you were always slightly awkward. You only got more awkward as time went on. But that was okay. I've always been just as awkward. It's just part of who we are.
"B" is for beauty.
I remember a time when you told me all your insecurities. Those little things that you hated about yourself. I remember how over time, I dulled the importance of those things to the point where insecure simply didn't apply to you.
"C" is for cute.
Does a day ever go by when you don't tell me I'm cute or adorable? I certainly know the answer, and it's a firm no. And although I don't see the cuteness in myself, I find myself smiling knowing that you do.
"D" is for distance.
The biggest obstacle in our lives. We are so close to each other's hearts, and yet so very from one another. But this is an obstacle we will overcome, no matter the cost. Love will prevail, as you once said to me.
"E" is for enjoyment.
It's safe to say that I enjoy your company. It doesn't matter what we're doing, everything seems better with you, and the days you're away, darling, I feel like part of myself is gone.
"F" is for friendship.
I know this one sounds corny, but regardless, you're my best friend. Honestly, there's nobody who I trust more than you, nobody I feel more comfortable around, nobody who gets me quite like you do.
"G" is for goals.
Everybody has goals. Here are some of mine: to make you happy, to make you feel loved, to make you laugh, smile, to put a twinkle in your eye, to touch you, to hold you, to calm you, to comfort you, to live my whole life with you.
"H" is for happiness.
I was happy before we fell in love. Now that we are in love though, I've found more happiness in myself and the world around me than I've thought possible. And that's all thanks to you.
"I" is for indescribable.
This is the word I would use to describe my feelings towards you. Ironic, isn't it? But the only real reason this is the word I would pick is that there are no others to describe it. And you can rest assured, when I say my feelings for you are indescribable, I mean that in the absolute best way.
"J" is for June.
The month we first started dating. I remember it well. How you absolutely refused to tell me you liked me, how it embarrassed you, how I had to pry the words out of you, how you finally told me after three days and how you learned I'd felt the exact same way the whole time.
"K" is for kiss.
Something we cannot share. But also, something we wish to share. Desperately. And we will share it, if we are patient enough. It will be quite simply, amazing.
"L" is for love.
I once thought I'd found love in someone else. I was wrong. But our love is different. After all, today is the exact amount of days into my last relationship that I ended it. It just didn't work. But with you, it does. It always will.
"M" is for money.
"Money makes the world go 'round". Haven't we all heard that? But you don't care about money. I'm sure I could be dirt poor or loaded with cash, it would all be the same to you. You'd still love me no matter what.
"N" is for nuzzling.
Cuddling up to you and nuzzling in your arms has to be one of my favourite things to imagine. Especially if the scene is in the dark, by a fireplace, as rain pours or snow falls outside. No matter how dark or cold it may get, you always keep me warm.
"O" is for optimism.
Being an optimist is great. Falling in love with one is greater. There are days when one of us loses our optimism, and our hope. But every time, the other is there to encourage, and keep each other going. This is how I know we'll stand the test of time as a couple.
"P" is for patience.
A great deal of this will be required for all the years of waiting before we finally meet in person. But we can do it. I know we can. I wouldn't quit, even if I had to wait the longest time. It's worth it to see you in the end.
"Q" is for quiet.
I find it odd how you feel so comfortable and open around me, and then I remember that you're actually a shy, quiet person. It truly goes to show how I've unlocked the door to your heart. I intend to never close that door as long as I live.
"R" is for resilience.
Everybody fights. The human nature to have an opinion makes it inevitable. And yes, we've fought pretty badly before. Yet, we've stuck through it, realized our mistakes, said our apologies, and never once even considered ending our relationship over a conflict. It gives me comfort to know that no matter how hard we may fight sometimes, we both realize that we would be lost without each other, and that no fight will ever come between our love.
"S" is for soul mate.
No, I'm not jumping the gun. No, I'm not a fool. They say there's no real way to know if somebody is your soul mate, except you just do. You just know. Darling, if there is one thing I know, you're mine. And when you tell me I'm yours, I just love you all the more.
"T" is for trials.
We have lots of challenges ahead of us. We've already been through some, but there will be many more. Am I worried about them? Not one bit. As individuals, we can be broken, but together, we are strong, darling. Stronger than the mind can fathom. And we will hold.
"U" is for understanding.
I've said this once already, but nobody understands me like you do. It's like you're in my head sometimes, knowing what I'm going to say before I even say it. Understanding exactly how I feel, even if I'm not all that sure myself. I feel like I could say anything to you, no matter how complicated, or weird, and you'd still get it.
"V" is for vision.
I have a vision. It involves a future with you, as my wife. With you as the mother to my children. With you as the largest piece of my life's puzzle. This is a vision I hold close to my heart, and one I aim to make a reality.
"W" is for writing.
Something I love to do. Why is it in our alphabet of love, though? Well, it's not only because "W" is a tough letter, but also because you love my writing. It doesn't matter how bad it may be, you're always supportive, always telling me about how great a job I do. And that's just one of the many reasons I love you.
"X" is for....?
What is "X" for? It's quite the unfair letter, in my opinion. I mean, how many words start with "X"? More importantly, how many of them apply to us? I suppose I'll just have to skip this one. Darn "X".
"Y" is for you.
Perhaps you've noticed how many times I've said "you" in this piece. That's because you are the whole reason I'm writing this in the first place. You inspire me. You drive me. You make me feel like I'm the only guy in the world. Without you, I would only have "I love". Just another reason why I need you.
"Z" is for zest.
Zest is something you've added to my life. Before you, my life was as bland as a Greek salad with no dressing. I don't even think you can have a Greek salad with no dressing! But the point is, you are the dressing to my Greek salad. You make me who I am, and I thank you for being such a big part of my life.
That is the alphabet of our love, and though our love may still be young, it is the strongest love I'll ever feel. You are the only one for me. You complete me. And I will never stop appreciating everything you do. Here's to all the years to come. I love you.
