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.
