It’s funny you know, people always compliment my writing, and if I’m being honest, I like my own writing too. I am good at it. Nevertheless, whenever I want to write you something, I can’t seem to find the right words. It’s like taking away the legs of a runner, the eyes of a painter, the hands of a thief. You take away my words, just by being you.
That’s why I decided that my tribute to you is going to be more than words. Today, exactly today. We have been together for 5.5 years, I figured it was a funny number, don’t you think? I almost can’t imagine all the memories that we have shared, so I took a quick walk through memory lane (a.k.a. all of our pictures). Probably you would be much better at it than I would ever be, you are so organized haha. I’m pretty sure I didn’t even find the half of our pictures, but the memories are lovely nevertheless.
What I’m trying to say is, I love you to the moon and back… and beyond *start song*
Now that I go through all these pictures I think I figured out why I can’t seem to write something nice for you. It’s because when I think of you, of us, you take me right back to where we started 5.5 years ago. To the time when I still was that awkward teenage girl. That geeky girl that you loved no matter what, whom you spent hours on MSN with, day and night. When I still didn’t know what I wanted in my life and wasn’t nearly as beautiful and confident as I am nowadays. You believed in me from the first day we met, you saw something in me that I didn’t even see myself. You remind me of where we came from, and how much we have grown since then. You support me in everything I do and would follow me blindly if I’d ask. Sure, we have good times and bad times, but unconditional love and trust always pulls us through. “To be brave is to love someone unconditionally, without expecting anything in return.“
Love is… not wanting to go to sleep, because you don’t want to miss any minute with the person you love.
Love is… annoying everyone around you because you can’t stop talking about your better half.
Love is… turning the world upside down for the person you love
Love is… still getting butterflies every time you smile
Love is… You
“You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy – car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.” – Oscar Wilde
