A Year of You

July: I have known you for almost a year before my heart realized that it was you that was missing in my life. With you, it was never like the love at first sight kind of love; it was more like walking into a place I’ve never been but instantly felt like I was home.

August: It was in between whispers, laughter, and genuine smiles when I first heard you say you love me out loud. I could literally hear your heart beat faster and faster and all I came up with was a smile. Little did you know that I kept wishing that moment never had to end.

September: I once had a dream where I was at the beach, just enjoying the fresh air and beautiful view. As I was walking along the shoreline, I saw something moving in the sea — it was you. It was such a weird dream given that we don’t talk all that much before, but you were swimming towards me and I didn’t know what it meant at the time until the day I saw you in a different light.

October: A few months ago, I ran out of motivation to push forward and do better; I used to drag myself out of bed and convince myself that I still have a purpose. But then you came and I’ve never felt that alive in a long, long time.

November: I feel like I am always in a grand adventure when I’m with you; not just because you liked going out and exploring so many places, but even when we’re sitting beside each other sharing our dreams and how we’ll one day take over the world. It was an entirely different planet, an entirely different universe, and the best part of it is that we’re the only ones in it.

December: It was the holidays and I wanted to be with you so bad I wanted to tear the whole world apart for being so unfair, but you were always such a ray of sunshine with all the positivity that you impose which made me realize the brighter side of things; that knowing that you’re mine and I am yours is enough for the meantime.

January: There are days when I felt like I am drowning, but being the swimmer that you are, you always save me even from the monsters inside my head.

February: I received a very pink boquet of roses, and I never liked receiving flowers until it came from you. You were always so thoughtful and sweet and loving, I wanted to hug you forever.

March: It was my birthday and you surprised me with one of the books I’ve been eyeing whenever we visit a bookstore and you were so worried that I wouldn’t like it. Oh, you were so adorable, you didn’t know that just one of those tight hugs would be good enough a gift.

April: We spend almost everyday with each other but I still can’t get enough of you.

May: It was somewhere near our anniversary that I suddenly felt fear because I know that I wouldn’t be able to live the same way if everything turned out differently in the end; I never want to lose you.

June: We spent 10 days out of the country and I never really cared how beautiful all those places were because all that mattered to me was being with you.

My life has been so colorful since you came, I have no words to describe the feeling you give me. You are such a wonderful blessing, I could never thank you enough for simply existing and crossing paths with me. I love you, always.

Boyfriend Appreciation Post

I never thought love could feel this good – I think God never gives us that perfect fairytale-like love that we’ve dreamt about as kids, but rather, he gives us the love we never thought we needed. Also, I think that when you find the right person for you, you’ll be surprised at how time can fly.

With you, everyday is something to celebrate about. Sometimes it amazes me how selfless you can be despite your claims of being selfish – you cheer me up despite having problems of your own and it moves me how despite feeling like you’re carrying the weight of the world, you still choose to carry a bit of mine for me.

You are such a blessing in my life despite me being so stubborn and reckless and just plain out of control. You are always willing to go that extra mile for me. Despite everything we’ve gone through, you’re still here and I will always be thankful for that. Thank you for always putting up with my mood swings.

I love you always and in all ways.

Dear you,

We didn’t cross paths just for us to go in different directions at the end of the road; for no matter what happens and wherever our feet leads us, you will always be the person I would like to hold hands with while walking this long stretch of a road.

We didn’t spend our time sharing stories with each other just to fall silent after the last sentence. I don’t think I will ever run out of stories to tell you and I sure am never going run out of stories of you. I will never run out of words to write to you – even my whispers and my sighs will be a statement of my love for you.

I didn’t hug you so tight just for you to feel like we’re drifting apart after I loosen my arms around you. I will stay true to our promise of forever and as long as we both feel the same way, we will remain warriors and heroes of our relationship.

We didn’t make all these memories just for you to feel like we’re not going to make it in the end. I may not have a full grasp of what tomorrow will bring, but I hope you keep this in mind: I will always choose you – I would die and live a thousand lifetimes and search for you in each one of them just to fall in love with you all over again.

We didn’t say hello in the beginning of our story just to end it with goodbye.

24 Hours

5:00 a.m.

When I was younger, I used to think about how someone would be capable of loving me — the type of love I’ve watched in movies, or read about in books, or even in the songs I’ve heard on the radio.

I wanted a cliche and I didn’t have any idea how I would make that happen.

Little did I know, you were the answer to those thoughts I’ve had that seemed light years ago. Continue reading

You

In the place where every ending is entangled with a new beginning, and each night is a bridge to another day…

You came at the time when I wasn’t looking, at the time when all my doors and windows are closed. You came knocking at my doorstep without uttering a single word as I let you in without questions asked. I opened the door, welcomed you in, and made you feel comfortable.

I will let you stay in the depths of my heart for as long as you want. I will let you make my entirety your home and my love your blanket.

Let me fill your days with certainty as you stay calm in my arms every day. So as when you close your eyes and sleep, you wouldn’t have to worry, because I will still love you the moment you wake up.

I will walk with you, stop at places if you ever feel tired, and I’d even walk backwards if we ever feel the need to trace back our tracks.

I may not know if my love would ever suffice how I truly feel for you and I may not be the prettiest girl to brag about, but please let me choose you every single day for the rest of my life.

Because in my eyes, there is only you.

I love you.

Concept

I hate it when people stare at me
or notice the way I dress,
or the way I talk.
I hate talking in front of a huge crowd,
even if it’s only for less than five minutes.
I like the peacefulness of just being
in the background of things.

Then there was you,
and suddenly,
I want every bit of attention
from you.

The bottom line is,
I don’t want to be just in the background
of your story.
I don’t want to be just a concept.
I want to be the one
who fills your mind,
day in and day out.
I want to occupy every inch of your system,
your world —  your future.

Falling for the Universe

My mind is filled with so much thought of you that I think of you in everything that I do.

Yesterday, I thought my heart was going to burst out of my chest because of my love for you.

Today, my heart feels like it’s detonating because it is filled with so much of you.

Tomorrow, my love for you will continue to grow until it spreads through every part of my system.

It will spread through every part of me like the way the sun’s rays spreads through the Earth and brightens each of our days.

You ignited so much within me that my love for you will soon be as enormous as the universe itself.

The point is, my love for you is consuming that even through your worst days and even through the days when you show how fundamentally flawed you are, I will still love you as much.

Universe & You

I never asked for anything, yet I found someone who not only shines like a star but resembles the whole universe…

You are the Sun that promises beautiful mornings, lovely afternoons, new beginnings, and brighter days.

You are the Moon that guards the night with its light on the darkest of hours.

You are all of the stars — you shine so beautifully that my heart seems to be at its most tranquil state even by just staring at you.

You are all the planets that fill and complete the solar system. You are both breath-taking and inexplicable; you are a mystery that I am willing to spend my entire life solving.

But most of all, you are my today and all of my tomorrows. You are a blessing that I will forever thank God for giving me.
