Well, today is pretty special. My girlfriend, who I love so dearly, has successfully tolerated me for three years. Three whole years! Isn’t that pretty wonderful? She still loves me…unbelievable. Today, I am posting what is essentially a shout-out to her: I am going to tell you three reasons why I like her, and then show you guys all a poem I wrote about her (for what it’s worth, I am waiting to know if it will be published – would add to the excitement). Here we go!
1. Tori loves Jesus way more than she’ll ever love me, and that is great. I firmly believe that the way to grow closest to your significant other is by pursuing God together, so Tori has provided me a challenge, being someone who holds me accountable, someone who helps me to see what I need to see in order to become a more Godly young man.
2. Tori isn’t afraid to laugh at my jokes. For gosh sake, couples are so boring! People love each other madly, but don’t seem to have any sense of humor sometimes. They look like they have lost interest in each other. Tori, whether fake or not, laughs at my jokes, and I laugh at hers. We both find each other fascinating, and I pray that never ends. Humor is enormously important to success in our relationship!
3. Tori loves Jesus, but also loves me. I cannot understate how wonderful it feels to have someone who desires to spend time with you. It really is great. You could say our love is sweet like poetry…heh heh.
I love her, as you can tell! Here is the poem:
Beautiful blonde girl sitting across the table from me,
Deep blue eyes staring into mine.
She holds my hands and we tell wonderful stories,
Where she is looking divine.
I love her
I think of her all the time
The way she loves, the way she can make a moment out of a subtle
She gets me so excited that sometimes I forget how to rhyme.
She means the world to me but I don’t think she’ll understand the gravity
of it all.
Her red like roses lips, her diamond-shiny smile, how she walks about effortlessly.
The way she laughs: not loud, not too soft…just as it should be.
A cacophony of melodies singing straight from her beautiful
This girl, she’s perfect.
Perfectly passionate about those less fortunate,
About a God who provides,
One whose love she reflects like the moon does the sun.
From the moment I saw her five years ago, I knew
She was the
She is also perfectly
Not afraid to admit flaw or failure,
always ready to embrace mine
And that’s why I love her above all else on this Earth.
She is wonderful, and just what I need.
And best of all
She loves me
Happy 3 year Tori!
