I Knew I Loved You Before I Met You
Dedicated to My husband, Joakim
Submitted by Tara
To My Dear Jocke,
All my life I've been waiting for you...
...the first time we talked, it was like we had known each other forever. I didn't even know you, but I felt like you were already an old friend. I waited in anticipation for months until I flew to Sweden to study at university in Stockholm. It seemed so far away, but I dreamed about what it would be like when you met me at the airport in Copenhagen.
And the day finally came, I was so nervous. For 9 hours over the Atlantic, my heart was pounding out of my chest. But when I finally saw you (with your little bouquet of flowers that was making you sneeze) and you ran to me and just about knocked me over with your hug, well, I knew. I knew that everything I thought about you was true. I knew you would never hurt me. I knew I would tear down all the walls that I had built up around my heart for you, because I knew I now had you to protect me.
Every day I love you more. Even when we have misunderstandings, I can't stop thinking about how much I love you. Can you imagine how annoying it is for me when all I want to do is be angry about something that happened, but I can't because the second I look at you, my heart melts. It's annoying, but I love it. I love not being angry. I love not being selfish. I love doing things for you, just to do it, not for something in return. I love your hedgehog impression.
This letter is a small gift to you. We missed having a honeymoon, and I know Hawaii's alway been a dream for you. It's no guarantee, but I thought I'd try :) ...
...I've finally found you, and I love everything about you, especially your "faults". I saved myself for you emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically. I loved you before I knew you existed because I knew that God was saving some one for me. Jag šlskar dig Joakim!
All my love now and always,
