I look forward to the day when you no longer hang your coat on the chair,
To it hanging proudly and confirmed in the closet.
Our closet.
I look forward to the day, I no longer have to wonder when weโ€™ll see each other,
To being safe in the knowledge that your face will greet me at home,
Our home.
Iโ€™ll be comforted by the fact that each night I will be in your arms,
Feel it wrapped so warmly and steadily around me,
Around us.
I look forward to knowing your every gesture and move so intimately, we don’t need words,
I anticipate challenges,
But I will embrace them because they will only strengthen my bond.
Our bond.
I look forward to it all, because you were what I was looking for.
