"What is it that you see in me? Who is it that you believe I can be?"
I held your hand the first day I met you, though I did not deserve to. I remember thinking to myself...if this girl really knew who I was, she would not want to hold my hand. With these hands I have inflicted pain, I have cursed, committed sinned. These hands have damned me. They have damned me from happiness, joy and especially love.
What is it that you see in me? Who is it that you believe I can be? Whatever it is that you see, whatever it is that you believe I can be, I shall become. Your grace is astounding, your love, unconditional. What have I done to deserve you? Nothing. You make me better. You make me kinder. You take my heart of stone and you turn it into beating flesh.
We've been together for 8 months now. Months that have felt like years when I consider the ways we have grown to love and care for one another. Now, when I look at my hands, I don't see the damage I have caused others, I see the healing I can bring, and the love I can spread.
Thank you, my love.
