Most of the time my memory is never perfect, sometimes I know stuff. Other times I don't even know who I am.
.. But I remember how we met. At least that's one thing I can brag about. I remember things we've done and I remember you . Even when I don't know who I am all I do is think about you and that's enough reason for me to be happy all day...
It wasn't magical. How we met. I didn't even think that it would lead to any of this. You seemed to perfect. A little bit to perfect for me. And I was stubborn in a way. Acted like it wasn't a moment that made my heart skip. I hadn't been lost in anyone's eyes. I had never made eye contact with anyone before. And I could almost see your lips move as you breathed. I could almost smell concern and care in your words
You met a crying me. A broken me. A sad me. And the funny thing is I just can't seem to remember what was making me cry. But I remember the hug, I remember the words you said. "Don't worry. It's gonna be fine. ".
Honestly I was a loner back then. Until you happened. I was sad until you walked in. Half broken until you fixed me up.
And how we just clicked I don't know. How we got here is a story that I can't even believe. A story that heals me in a way, one that lights me up when I feel sad.
.. And the truth is I care,more than I express most of the times. I appreciate your presence even when it doesn't seem like it. I need you cause if you not around I can't take it.
.. I adore you.
... I appreciate you wanting to see me smile all through. I love you for for always supporting and giving me hope. I love you for being there when I need. I love you for making me the me I need to be.
