I wonder why I have always felt safe with you — like, how the raging storms in my heart come to still just be your mere touch; how your smooth voice calms my overflowing emotions, and how your gaze clears out the background noise and make me focus only on you.
My grandmother once told me, “Always choose the one that calms your heart and not the one that gives you butterflies.”
I was too young to understand then but now I know why.
Because in times when the world becomes too loud, I’d only go to you and you’ll make it all go away. When the people around me say a lot of irrelevant things, I’d only seek your advice and you’d make my mind at peace.
But most of all, when I asked myself what I really felt for you, there was no question or doubt that emerged from my mind — my heart was still, it was calm.
My heart and mind were at peace in telling me this is love — a love that’s sure, freeing, and selfless. A love that didn’t come from chaos but a love that comes from love itself; so pure and one of a kind.
