Love the Boy Who...

Love the boy who sees you, the one who when you say "I'm fine," hears the tone in your voice that says "I'm not." Love the boy who holds your hand and kisses your forehead and lifts you off your feet when you hug him. Love the boy who sings to you in the car as he cups your chin in his palm and love the boy who brushes your hair behind your ear when you tell him you need to talk to him about something. Love the boy who turns adorably red when he plays the guitar for you and who will twirl you around to an Eric Church song anytime, anywhere. Love the boy who can't be serious, but will try when it is important to you. Love the boy who goes back and forth with you quoting Spongebob and O' Brother, Where Art Thou? and who makes you laugh so hard you can't breathe. Love the boy who shares your taste in music and knows obscure Mumford and Sons songs and listens to the radio louder than you do, which you never thought was possible. Love the boy who asks you to stay without expectations, who rolls over in the middle of the night, still asleep, to pull you in close to him. Love the boy who drunk calls you at 1:30 a.m. and who promises to bring you food to the library when you're cramming for a big test. Love the boy who fulfills those promises. Love the boy who goes out of his way for you, who drives to your apartment to get your homework from you so you don't have to go to class in the morning, who picks you up after a trip, who takes you to get Ben & Jerry's at 8 o'clock on a Wednesday night. Love the boy who goes on and on about his family, making you feel as if you already know them before you've ever met them. Love the boy who quotes Kevin Hart stand up word for word, cracking up as he does, who makes you rather watch him than the video. Love the boy who dances with you at parties and calls you "sweetheart." Love the boy who makes you realize home is a person when he holds you in his arms and who makes you melt when he kisses you.

But most of all, love the boy who loves you back, who realizes you are everything he's ever wanted, who would do anything for you. Love the boy who puts in the effort, who texts you back, who calls you and asks how your day has been, who shows a genuine interest in your life and interests. Love the boy who deserves to be loved, not because he is perfect, but because he tries so hard for you. Love the boy who loves Jesus and his mama, whose values align with yours, who provides you with comfort, and safety, and an abundance of joy. Love the boy who makes the bad days better, because Lord knows life is hard and we're going to walk through storms. Love the boy who will walk with you through them because he knows that a rainy day with you is better than a sunny day without you. Love the boy who gives you the feeling, yeah you know that feeling, because if there is anything I know, it is that life is too short to let love fall to the wayside.
