I love you. I can simply state "I love you", and yet, that love becomes increasingly profound with each passing day. When I first said, "I love you", I had an understanding of what love was in that moment, and the meaning of love in that space was enough. But that was the yesterday of two weeks ago. My "I love yous" are now specifically custom made. "I love you" now wears your face. "I love you" now has your laughter. "I love you" has your warmth, your happiness, and your joy. "I love you" will one day contain your grumpiness, your anger, your annoyance, and even your sadness. I love you and I know those words will continue funnelling out into the nuances of 1 Corinthian 13 in all its glorious simplistic complexities.

I love you, and I just want to be planted right beside you. I want to grow my roots into your roots, lean my branches into yours, and maybe someday become entangled so that from a distance we appear as one, but step closer and we are two.

Oh, and by the way...I love you!
