Sometimes I lie awake at night thinking about mine’s and Geovany’s future together. Our story consists of surprises, happiness, confusion, sadness, love, and everything else in between.
Before Geovany, my life was a wreck. I was in a bad relationship where I felt trapped and depressed. A naive girl who easily loved a distraught boy. When we met, Geovany, I had no place for you in my heart…
Our love affair started around May-June 2009, when I decided to come up and talk to you on one of the cafeteria benches in high school. You looked so lonely. I thought to myself, “I want to be his friend.” But when we started talking, you lit up like a Christmas tree. It was surprisingly magical! I should have known then how wonderful you are. You couldn’t stop staring at me.
You always tell me that from you moment you met me you knew I was the one for you. Everytime you tell me that my heart flutters with happiness. I feel honored to have bestowed such emotions to you.
You and I were friends for a long time. Busy being with other people and doing other things. But somehow we always managed to keep some kind of contact. For the first three years after our first meeting it was friendship. Little did I know you wanted something more from me. I never knew how you felt until after the fact.
I will admit, when I knew your sentiments towards me I was not inclined to follow suit. My heart, mind, feelings, and thoughts were not in the right place at the right time. But, when the time came to be with you I took a leap of faith to see how it would turn out.
I never looked back.
You took a big weight off my shoulders and made me feel beautiful again. You constantly tell me how much you love and and want to be with me. Your spontaneous acts of affection are the living end. I love that my family loves you, that my friends love you, and most importantly that you and I can talk for hours about meaningful things. I learn so much from you. I only hope I give you the same experience.
Two years down. From here to pluto. I love you.
