Epiphany

The salt from the ocean breeze burned my nose as i inhaled the outside air. I stood, marveled at its beauty. There was nothing like the vast endlessness of the world's waters. But that was second on my mind, for my thoughts always circled back to the feeling of my hand entangled in his. 
Conscious of his every move beside me, i closed my eyes and breathed in deep. I kept our touch and the electricity it gave off first in my head. He didn't even have to do anything to set free the familiar family of butterflies in my stomach; just simply exist.
I turned to look at him. He was focused; his eyes were distant. I was curious as to what questions were aching to be answered within his train of thought, but i did nothing more than study his face from the profile. 
The hard edges of his jaw were astonishingly defined in the array of sunlight. His lips were in a set line; nonspeaking. I noticed the scar on his eyebrow and how the slight imperfection to his seemingly perfect face made him...well...him. And he was the epitome of perfection through my eyes.
I saw a furrowed brow and became of wonder.
"Everything OK?" I asked. The sound of my voice betrayed me, presenting itself much weaker and more pathetic than intended. He stood silent for a brief moment.

"Not even the seemingly infinite dimensions of the oceans can begin to describe my love for you. It's baffling to me; that one is capable of so much love," he paused to turn to me, "but i wouldn't trade it for the world."
I looked into his eyes, past everything, straight to his soul. And what i saw then is what dictated that i would love him forever;
Honesty.
