I bought Taylor Swift’s Speak Now a while back for Butter, because he LOVES her. I bought the Target special edition, so it came with a second disc with different versions of a few of the songs, and this song.
I don’t remember the first time I heard it, but I can tell you I teared up. I take that back. I think I heard it the first time before my second surgery. This was what got to me.
The stakes are high, the water’s rough
But this love is ours
That got to me because I was flipping out over whether or not I even wanted to go through with a second surgery. Through it all, M stood beside me. He was ready to support me if I chose not to have surgery again. He was there because I did have surgery again. If I don’t say it often enough, I realize how lucky I am every day. Even when I tell him I’m ready to run away because this is just so hard to deal with sometimes, he smiles [despite knowing it drives me batty] and says he’ll support me in whatever I want or need to do.
If you haven’t heard it, give it a listen.
