I know that his hair isn't exactly soft, but please still run your fingers through them. When he lies on your lap after he's been driving for hours, turn off the TV and let him fall asleep knowing you’re right there. He’ll love it if you do.
I know that he's not good at everything. There are things he will fail at, fail miserably even. Hug him. When he doubts himself, put your arms around him and let him feel secure. Let him know that you will always believe in him. He’ll love it if you do.
I know that his voice isn't made of the sweetest melodies. Sometimes it can even get annoying. But if he brings out his guitar, please sit in the front row and listen. Let him know that even if no one else fills the stadium, you will always be there to applaud and chant his name. He’ll love it if you do.
I know that there are moments when he'll stare into space. When his beautiful shining eyes become empty as they stare into the abyss, worrisome and anxious. If this happens, please sit next to him. You don't have to go on and on about how much you care because he already knows that you do. You don’t have to kiss him or cling to him. You don't have to scream at the top of your lungs that you love him because he loves you too. And in these moments he just needs you right next him. So please just be. Because I never was.
To the next girl who falls for him,
love him right, love him true.
Love him the way he’ll know you do.
Love him the way I didn’t get the chance to.
