"Mason, look, I found one!" I yelled joyously across the beach.
It was now August, and Mason and I were spending the last days of summer at the beach. We were looking for seashells, and I had just found a beautiful one.
It was blue and shone in the sunlight, small enough to fit in my hand and absolutely perfect in every way.
Mason ran up behind me and wrapped his hands around my waist, "You did find one," he said, burying his head in my neck.
I leaned back against him, but only for a moment before he took off running again.
"Where are you going?" I asked.
"I want to show you something," he replied.
I watched him run along the beach, the sunlight streaking his hair. He looked so much better now than a few months ago; back when I was sure he didn't love me, nor cared about me. I recalled the day I had come back to see him; his greasy hair and stressed face. All that was replaced now with happiness; he had even begun to play his guitar again, and now was running towards it as I strained to catch up.
When I finally got to him he was sitting cross-legged, lightly strumming. I rested my head in my hands and closed my eyes. I knew that this is what he wanted to show me, he had written something.
He cleared his throat and then softly said, "This is our love song,"
I had always thought that our love song would be something special, something bigger and better than everyone else's. I mean, everyone thinks their relationship will last forever, but with Mason, I knew. Still, when he had shown me the song I had smiled thinking it would only show the ups of our relationships. I was shocked when I heard the melody change frequently from happy to sad, I realized that when Mason was gone it affected him too, I realized how selfish I had been by thinking I was the only one getting hurt. In that moment, I realized that our love song was absolutely perfect; all the imperfections of it made it that way. People that heard it would hear our sadness, feel our joy, see our love. I had hoped for so much less than what he had given me, I smiled as he began to sing our love song, a different kind of love song.
The words spun around me and I cried at the songs beauty, Mason's beauty, as he sang:
You and I
Were young,
When our story first
Begun
But you were filled
With determination
I admired all your
Aspirations
I watched you fall,
Fall for me
I wished that I could
Make you see
That I'd love you till
The end of time
I wanted you to know
You were all mine
I'd write you a million songs
Just to see you smile
I'd sing for you all through the night
Just so I could stay awhile
Because I knew all along,
We had a different kind of love song
They tried to tell you
Wanted you to know
That you could do much better
That you had sunk too low
But you stuck by me
Stayed there for me alone
I didn't deserve you
But then, I never will
We cried together
Through the nights
Woke up laughing in the morning
About some stupid fight
I'd listen to your voice for hours
Even if you had nothing to say
The way you look when you're so deep in thought
I wouldn't have it any other way
I'd write you a million songs
Just to see you smile
I'd sing for you all through the night
Just so I could stay awhile
Because I knew all along,
We had a different kind of love song
Oh, I knew all along,
We had a different kind of love song
