Everyday, I thank the Lord for all the things I have gone through, each and every pain I encountered, because it all led me to you. All my mistakes, all the wrong decisions, they don’t matter now that you’re here with me. Somehow, were those mistakes really mistakes, if they all directed me to you, the other half of my soul?
All my life, I have dreamt of the perfect kind of love, the one where everything falls right into place. But love isn’t really like that. Love isn’t all that romance novels tells you it is. Love is flawed. It isn’t perfect. It’s never perfect and will never be perfect.
Love is messy. Love is a complicated concept that all of us seem to say we understand but, in reality, majority of the people don’t really know what love truly is. Love just happens. It happens when you least expect it. I made the mistake of searching for love – that didn’t really end well for me. So I stopped searching. I gave up on love. But love came.
Love came to me when my life was in shambles, when everything was going wrong, then all of a sudden, I just felt it, without realizing what hit me. Love came like a hurricane. It hit me hard. I was never expecting you, yet you came anyways.
You came and showed me you were different. You showed me love like I have never known it before. You showed me the kind of love that is unadulterated and true. But like I said, love isn’t always filled with rainbows and butterflies. We had our fair share of misunderstandings and arguments. There were moments where we fit together so perfectly. But there were also times we couldn’t make things work yet we try – we love each other so much that we try even when it’s hard.
The circumstance we found ourselves in is far from the ordinary – a situation I didn’t think I was going to find myself in. We are together yet apart. We are so close yet so far. But we chose to stay together despite the many hindrances and trials life throws our way. Why? Because we love each other. Because we know that at the end of the day, we would eventually be able to surpass whatever obstacles we encounter along the way, as long as we are together.
I am not perfect, I hope you understand. I will annoy you. I will get you angry. I will frustrate you. But also remember, that I will love you so much – so much more than anyone else can. I already gave my heart to you and I told you to keep it safe. My heart is fragile and would need to be handled with care at all times. I trust that you would care for it like you promised, like I will always care for yours.
