Come back to me when you’re ready and we can fix this. Together. We can put our broken pieces back together with each other. I’ll be waiting, with my arms wide open, ready to hold you like I held you all those nights ago when you first let me watch your world fall apart. And I stayed. You showed me parts of yourself you never showed everyone and when I should’ve been scared, I stayed. I watched you tackle your demons and wrestle them to the floor and I still stayed. I loved you even more than I knew was possible. Every day, there was a new battle and we took it on headfirst. We didn’t know what the outcomes would be but we knew that if we battled together, we would come out even stronger, victorious, holding on to each other, fists in the air, triumphant. I can still see you smiling at me, even now.
When you are really in love with someone M, there’s not much you can do to turn that love away. When two souls are connected and meant to be with someone, they always find their way back to each other. You can try to fight it, you can try to screw it up, you can try to reject it with lies of not being good enough but love frankly doesn’t give a crap about why you think you don’t deserve it. I knew the moment that I met you that you were going to be someone really important to me. And you can ask those around me, when I believe in something, when I believe in someone, I don’t give up on them.
You told me once to be strong for you. And I will. But in return I expect you to be strong for me too. And I know that will take some time so until then, I’ll go into battle by myself. I’ll defeat our demons and ghosts and I’ll be victorious while you gather your strength. When you’re ready though, I expect you to join the fight with me. I expect you to fight for me. I want to prove everyone wrong about us and that fact alone has given me renewed energy to make us work. And I know somewhere deep down inside of you, you want it too.
Think about all the memories we made and all the memories we still have to make. Life is really hard right now but it’s all going to be worth it in the end when we are standing next to each other, hand in hand, watching all of our dreams come true, together. There’s nothing true love can’t fix, M. When you’re ready, I’ll be here. When you’re ready, come back to me.
“Where did all the people go? They got scared when the lights went low. I’ll get you through it nice and slow, when the world’s spinning out of control. Afraid of what they might lose, might get scraped or they might get bruised. You could beg them, what’s the use? That’s why it’s called a moment of truth. I’ll get it if you need it, I’ll search if you don’t see it, you’re thirsty, I’ll be rain, you get hurt, I’ll take your pain. I know you don’t believe it but I said it and I still mean it, when you heard what I told you, when you get worried I’ll be your soldier.”-Gavin DeGraw
