Who would've thought that we would get to to this? We both knew for a point that we may not make it this far and yet here we are. There are a thousand mushy things I want to say to you but I am out of words. Well, I think I've said them all in our first month together but I still want to say the same things over and over again to you...
You are the most surreal guy I've ever met. I think, second to my dad you have this patience that could stretch so long every time I would throw a tantrum or switch to my "emo mode". Even though it was actually my fault, you wouldn't let the day pass without us being okay even if it means that it's you who should say sorry. But you are different from the rest not because of that.
You couldn't lie to me. You have no capabilities of lying to me 'cause you know you would give it away anyway. I really appreciated you keeping my wrecked then favorite wallet and having it repaired because you know how attached to it I am. And though I could easily catch you when you are cooking up some surprise, you still risk it anyway. But you are different from the rest not because of that.
You would go to war for me. This year was a year full of misunderstanding and losing and regaining people but you made sure that if someone hurt me bad you'll be there for me. There were times I was faced with conflict and you chose to let me handle my battles and I thank you for that great deal of self restraint. You respected my capability to handle difficult people and situations and still made me feel that you're by my side. But you are different from the rest not because of that.
You bring me to these quirky places. Instead of going to those posh places, we would find the most decent looking carinderia and enjoy dinuguan, bicol express, and adobo. We enjoy each others company whatever the setting or situation may be. How I miss those random bus trips to provinces we don't know how to get to or from but I know we'll soon have time in our hands to enjoy all those. This made me appreciate you more, but you are different from the rest not because of that.
You are SUPER UNDERSTANDING. I could not over emphasize this but truly it's so amazing how you understand all my commitments, responsibilities and perspectives. You choose to stay despite all the stress I put you through. You adjust to everything that I do just so we could spend time together. Thank you for all those late nights you still opt to wait for me, to make sure I ate dinner since I thought eating was optional lately, for making me sane when dealing with stressful scenarios. But still you are different from the rest not because of that.
I could write all day thanking you for all the big and little things you do, for singing to me every day, for critiquing my clothes 'cause you want the world to see the best version of myself, for accompanying me to the hospital when I'm not okay, for being mushy and sweet consistently, for everything. All these things I see and appreciate and everyday I am thankful that you still choose to stay.
You may have it easier, find someone else who is not as stressed and committed to extracurricular work but still here we are counting months. I am one hell of a train wreck and yet you still see the beauty in all these hard rock facade.
I'm not going anywhere. I'm perfectly fine here with you so you shouldn't, we shouldn't be afraid. All you need to know is I love you. It's as simple as three words and eight letters and as profound as all those classical love stories mankind has. I love you more than all the sleepless nights I spend for IGNITE, PGGS and academics combined. I fall in love with you everyday over and over again and I don't care what other people would say about what we have. I look forward to waking up next to you everyday seeing the light of day caress your face and you smiling back at me. I'm sorry for being this crazy, workaholic girl but never forget that you are part of everything that I do and will hopefully accomplish. You are my rock. Never forget that.
Basically what I'm trying to say is... I love you <3 Here's to more months of happiness and craziness :)
