Someone I Love is a poem written by Fatima Mae Mendoza as an entry for the theme All Filipino this January, only here at The Ugly Writers.
Someone I love
Being able to find someone you click with is so naturally the best feeling ever. You feel like you’ve been best friends for life, you feel like you’re coming home.
You’re so comfortable with and maybe that’s what a soulmate should be. You will love to share every single thing you have in common.
It’s so easy to love someone when things are perfect and everything is wonderful.
But to love someone when things are difficult when they’re not being perfect,
When they’re messing up, flaws are seen, mistakes are made, I think that’s what really allows you to see how love really is.
Anyone can love someone who’s doing and saying all the right things being everything you want and need, when they’ve got it all together, when they’re it all figured out.
But to love someone at their lowest, to love someone despite how broken they feel, when they’re lost, when you’re willing to stand by them no matter how challenging or difficult things can be.
I think that kind of love is a lot more beautiful.
I think that kind of love is a lot more meaningful.
I thank you for loving me both times when things are good and also when things are bad.
I thank you for taking every aspect and part of me. Accepting my flaws, forgiving my mistakes helping me become the best version of me possible.
I love you.
