These past 21 months have been an absolute roller coaster. It has been 21 months since I first started speaking to someone that I never thought would be the most important person in my life today.
Last month, marked our official, ‘unofficial’ 1 year anniversary. Time sure does fly by, and every moment spend throughout that time; I wish it would’ve frozen still so that I could stay in that moment. Moments like our very first photo together, on Anzac day last year. Moments like our first ‘unofficial’ date, at the Eureka Skytower. Or our first formality together, not to mention an unforgettable night that was worth no sleep. Our first Christmas gift exchange, our first official date, our first family party within each others’ families, our first birthday celebrations together, and so many more firsts that I will never, ever forget. It truly has been a wonderful year, but without a doubt it was full of ups and downs.
Although, my darling, a lot of tears have been shed, a lot of tempers lost, a lot of repetitive arguments, it all comes down to the fact that you are the only one for me. Your ability to make me feel so incredibly happy, your effort and dedication, your patience and your constant never-ending love outweighs everything. Deep down, all the arguments and fights that occur are all because of the love we have for each other. Sometimes, we fail to give each other the love we desire, other times we give each other so much love that we can’t handle it. Nothing is because our relationship is failing, nor is it because we are incompatible. No matter what, this relationship worth the tears, worth the sadness and everything more that leads us to believe otherwise.
Babyboy, I’ve never been so happy. I’ve never felt so loved. And I’m so glad that you are the only one that has provided this for me because you’re my best friend, my life partner, my true love. You’re the one who is perfect in every single way in my eyes and nothing will ever phase that. Even the little things in this relationship exemplify the same amount of love as the larger things. Like, when you buy food that I crave when I’m on that time of the month. When you say ‘can I let Cleo in’ when she starts meowing at the door. When you hold my hand as you drive. When you brush my hair, or even pluck my armpit hair, hehe. When you always compliment what I wear. When you finish my sentences. When you know what I’m thinking. When you give me your jacket when it’s cold. When after every time we leave each other, you thank me for everything that we have done for the day. When you get out of your comfort zone and cook me food, or when you just look at me because “why can’t [you]”. Oh darling, every little thing that you never fail to show every day causes me to fall over and over in love with you - just like you said you wanted to do before this relationship even began.
You’re the most important person in my life. You’re the only one that matters most in my life. You’re my priority. You’re my love. You’re the only one I want. You’re everything to me. But you should know that by now.
Thankyou, my love, for the past 21 months. For everything you have attributed and contributed into my life. I am forever, and eternally grateful. I know that our relationship is one of a kind because it’s ours. Ours only. One filled with the traits that each of our beings have to offer to one another and for one another. And I could have never found anyone more perfect than you.
I love you, forever and always.
