I hope you know

I hope you know

That the first time I saw you my heart leapt for joy
That my soul knew you before our eyes met
That I never knew I could love so much that it kind of hurts
That in all my mistakes you inspire me to be better
That I see God differently…more beautifully because I know you
That I have tasted unconditional love in loving you

I hope you know that I love you
All of you
The beauty
The fearlessness
All the Inbetween
The good
The frustrating
The growth
The struggle
The working it out

I hope you know that I love you
When you walk
When you play
When you try
When you fall
When you sleep
When you dream
When you smile
When you hug
When you learn
When you are you
Perfectly you

I hope you know that I love you
When I do it right
When I get it wrong
When I make mistakes
When I am tired
When I am weak
When I just need to sleep
When you grow taller
When I grow smaller

I hope you will always know
I pray over you
I sing over you
I hope for you
I believe in you
And I will walk with you

I hope you know that to know you has taught me a thousand times over what I always wanted to know

That love is beautiful
That love is pure
That love is hope
That love always believes
That this kind of love comes from the Father
That this kind of love is never ending
That this kind of love cannot be measured
That this kind of love is more

I hope you know that you inspire me to write to love, to sing, to be
I hope you know how much I love you and I see you
I hope you know that while I can’t be all you need that I will always try to be
I hope you know these things….that you are all that I hoped you would be..
