Of us and our first year together :)
It hasn't been an easy journey so far, that much I can tell you. Being so far away from him can be really difficult sometimes. It gets lonely, this road. Sometimes I stare at other couples and think to myself, if only I could hold his hand, or stare into his eyes and tell him that I love him. Other times I just avoid going out with the others because they're all couples and who really likes being the third wheel right?
And then there are the fights. Any guy who can stand me and the times when I get all moody and melodramatic or when I get super sensitive and possessive is a keeper for sure. He never raises his voice at me, and is always waiting patiently for me to come to my senses. The best thing about the fights? He always apologises first no matter who started the fight in the first place. And he never lets me sulk all night and leave it unresolved.
But then there are the times when I come home to a gazillion notifications on facebook from him leaving countless messages on my wall, or the times when I get to see and hear him on skype or gmail chat. And when he puts a great, big smile on my face and makes my heart skip a beat. Those times are when I think, the wait is worth it. The wait will be worth it.
I'm thankful that I still get to hear his voice telling me that he loves me, that I get to see his face no matter how pixelated it may be, that I get to tell him about my day on gmail chat, that I get to have him pray with me. I'm thankful that he's committed to seeing this through, that he's committed to me. I'm thankful that I have a guy who loves me for who I am, not for who I could be, or for who I should be, but for me. I'm thankful that I have an amazing guy to do life with now, and hopefully for the rest of my days on this earth.
To the one who's always been there for me.
I love you because...
You love God with all your heart.
You look kinda cute sometimes. Sometimes ;)
You make me laugh and cry at the same time.
You make fun of me and then apologise for it later on :)
You cook me awesome breakfast.
You will go out of your way to make sure I'm okay.
You ask your friend to buy flowers for me just because it's our month-ivesary.
You drive me home when I'm too tired to take the wheel.
You give me your jacket when I'm feeling cold.
You smell incredible :D
You can rhyme and make stupid puns.
You go to great lengths to get me hard-to-find makeup.
You buy me presents for no reason at all.
You have good taste in music, and you make me playlists!
You always tell me that I'm beautiful even when I'm in my subway uniform.
You make me coffee in the wee hours of the night.
You leave me texts and messages on facebook telling me that you love me.
You are always just a phone call away.
You hold me close and tell me everything is going to be okay.
You always make me work through our issues and not push them away.
You fight hard for us, and you fight hard to make this work.
But most of all, I love you because you make me feel loved.
And that my darling, is more than anyone could ever ask for.
