You deserve to be held. You deserve to have someone cup your face and rub their finger along your cheek. You deserve someone who wants to see you any time they can, someone who says they love you. Someone who will love you when you’re broken and sad and when you’re happy and a smile paints your face— that is what you deserve. You deserve a smile from across the room and little memories that twist the corners of your mouth into a grin. You deserve to be thought about. You deserve someone.
And when things get incredibly difficult you deserve a hand on your back and kisses on the forehead, or even a look that communicates you’re still a team. You deserve to be committed to and to be loved in return just as much as you give love. You deserve small moments of silence when all you hear is the breathing of the other person. You deserve to be loved and cherished.
