I know, I know,
I’ve been told a thousand times before, “Take, it, slow”. Yet I just can’t do it, not completely at least. I mean it’s not like we’re going to wake up one day, run to the courthouse, get married, and not tell anyone until they’ve seen that we’re more serious about each other than they had imagined.
Although that is something we’ve talked about doing…
But, you know. Take it slow. Take it in stride and don’t miss a thing. Because in a relationship that’s this good there are memories that you want to cherish.
Like those, “Oh so important, first’s”. The first time you saw her, the first time you heard her voice, the first time you saw her eyes light up and shine as bright as her smile, the first time you held her hand in your own, and then of course the first time you kissed…
What if that all happened on the same night though? What if you were suddenly thrown into an incredible romance that you thought was only reserved for the big screen? Would it still be possible to take it slow?
Could it be so wrong to throw yourself into it, so deeply and so intensely, to see if such a thing can truly take you on an incredible journey with a person who is so amazing that they just take your breath away every time you look into their eyes?!
Would you be able to take it slow, if you spent your nights together looking at rings and sharing things while laid out on the kitchen floor?
But we are taking it slow, as slow as we can go when the pace of our relationship has been set at a running speed.
We’ve shared in pain, and we were left with fear. Yet when were together it fades away and just holds us here.
Here, is where we are. Two people, standing with love. Not letting our heads fall down as we look to the stars above.
Because in those shimmering stars, those small balls of light; I see your eyes looking down to me and I know that you hope we just might…
Take it slow.
