I don’t have any regrets that among all the people I chose to prioritize, I chose you. You have proven yourself more than what I had expected. And you still keep proving even if I stopped expecting anymore.
Of all the people, you’re the one who sticks with me–through the cliché parts of life–through the good times and the bad. Of all the people, you’re the one who embraces me tightly and allows me to cry myself–until I cannot cry anymore. Of all the people, you’re the one who doesn’t demand me to speak but who asks the right questions so I can better express myself. Of all the people, you’re the one who asks me too often how I feel–because sometimes I even forget to ask that myself.
Of all the people who are not linked to me by blood, you’re the one who proves that true love is even thicker than blood and water–that you want to take care of me just because of the four-letter word we deeply feel . Of all the people, you’re the one who keeps on showing that I do not need to prove myself, that I do not even need to change who I am, because you appreciate and love me just the same.
Thank you, my love.
Of all the people coming and going, you’re the one who keeps on defying the law of life–because you always choose to stay.
So what can I do than to say over and over again that I love you–that of all the people I knew, I’m happy that you got the same urge that I felt–that somehow the universe wanted us to end up together. Of all the people, I was able to meet the love of my life in you.
So let me copy what you always tell me every now and then:
I love you. I do. I love you.
