At Last I See the Light


AUTHOR'S NOTE: Song by Lady Antebellum.

I will always be here for you. Always. If Westley has "As you wish" for his Buttercup, I have "Always" for you. You are my Buttercup.

It hasn't been smooth sailing for us. We had our highs and we had our lows. It's like riding a rollercoaster. Just like a wheel. But the universe still lets us know that everything will be alright.

You have been scared for most of your adult life. I want you to know that I'm here. I'm ready to take your hand. Look and see, open your eyes, reach out. I will be there.

Sometimes, we lost our way to each other. Took different directions so much so that it became an if/then situation. But through it all, through all the obstacles that came between us, we found each other. It's like the universe is telling us it's meant to be.

Today, as I gaze at your sleeping form on our bed, I look out the window and see the countless stars. I can't help but think that they are part of why we're together. They led you to me that night, so many years ago it seemed, in the most absurd of circumstances. They were probably there, too, when you came knocking on my door that rainy night.

The stars. Just when you thought that clouds cover the sky and it's going to be dark you almost give up, they appear. It gives your heart a reason to rejoice.

The heart. The song said to let it be your compass when you get lost. That's what we did. Our hearts became our compasses, guided us to one another. When we thought everything is gone, is lost, we get back together. We followed our hearts and it still led us here. Because we were in the dark but we never gave up.

Kate, let me be your compass. I will guide you, keep you out of the dark. I know you are mine.

We are each other's compass. We will never be alone. That is our happy ending.

Rick, forever and always, will you be my compass and I yours. I know that with you guiding me, holding my hand, keeping me safe, the stars above us, I will never be alone.
