When I make someone my partner, I do not want to just be a lover. There are many different ways to show a person you love them; by just being a lover, it only means I am restricted to just holding your hand, giving morning kisses and cuddling you when you sleep.
Don’t get me wrong; I want all of that, but also, I want you to have more than that.
I want to add value to your life; by helping you be the best version of yourself, and be better individuals together.
I want to be your consistent cheerleader; supporting you in what you choose to do in life and whatever decision you make.
I want to be your sneaky sidekick; doing little acts of service without your knowledge, that makes you smile when you find out.
I want to be your naggy nurse; making a fuss when you refuse to take your medication, but only because I want you to be lively again.
I want to be your travel tote; exploring the ends of the Earth with you, having an adventure while learning different cultures.
I want to be your sultry singer; because you are the music to my soul.
I want to be your best friend; sharing every little secret and be silly in our own separate world.
I want to be your passionate protector; guarding you from hurt and catching the metaphorical malicious bullet, when the need arises.
Because, if we ever stopped being lovers (which I hope won’t happen), I want to be able to pick one of these roles, and still be there for you.
