“You complete me.” What bunk.
As I write, I’ve been wed 524,160 minutes. It brings matchless peace and joy. I credit this to finding one willing to love me in spite of my broken pieces. That, and I’ve never assumed she would make me happy. My happiness is a hefty load to give another.
We all have some ugly. Yoking her with the onus to fix my ugliness is plain ugly. She has her own ugly.
I don’t strive to make her happy. That’s on her. I do try making it easier, wiping a tear, keeping her safe, cooking, doing dishes, making the bed every morning (my way), doing goofy dances, publicly acting silly making her giggle, loving her kids, and grandkids as my own, etc.
We are all unique puzzles. Pieces scattered all over as we try putting them together, making us whole. Clear borders, but it is the intricate inner middle pieces that are hard to figure out. Broken edges, little clues, rearranging, pieces picked up, tried there, forced here, then put down. Still, she gets me; she likes my unfinished puzzle, no matter how scattered my pieces and unfinished my image.
True love is not the butterflies I get in my stomach, no, it’s that deep down knowing that she will be there no matter what. She sees the flawed me and patiently helps me try to find and fit those missing pieces.
