The Gifts of Love and Coffee

Sometimes I wonder what I would do without you. We joke about that a lot, but honestly my life revolves around you. The feelings that I have for you are so immense I cannot even put them into a single word or action. 

When I think about our relationship, sometimes it brings tears to my eyes, because it is so intimate and powerful. You complete me and make me feel whole. When you are not around, it is like there is a dull haze that surrounds everything, and when you come around I feel like I am at home and at peace. I cannot express the devotion and adoration that I have for you; “love” seems like such a broad and insufficient word compared to the way you make me feel.
You would fight any battle for me, stand through the test of time with me, and divulge every part of yourself to me, and I would do the same- times two. The strength of our relationship is something to be feared and admired, because there are very few people in this world that have found what we share. Loving you is like breathing, there are no falterings, no questions, and no doubts. I trust you with my whole being because I know that you will always protect me, love me, comfort me, and provide for me. There is no hesitation when it comes to loving you; I can barely remember not loving you. It seems like a fuzzy, distant memory. 

My favorite part of our relationship is the openness and honesty that revolves around everything we do and say. There are no secrets, and there is no distrust. We tell it like it is, and work out our problems in rational and considerate ways. We know the each other’s limits, and know what boundaries not to cross. I can tell you how I feel and not feel embarrassed. We can read each other’s emotions like a book. You accept all of who I am: the past, the present, and the future. You are loving, patient, and understanding. I do not feel fake around you, and I do not have to wear a mask. You make me feel like a supermodel when I am acting like a complete dork. You have helped me overcome fears that I thought I would be struggling with the rest of my life. I know that you will never make me do something I am uncomfortable with. I am not afraid to be myself around you, and the times that we have spent alone are cherished the most. I wish I could spend every moment of every day entangled in your arms.

August 12, 2009 to March 12, 2012. 2 years and 7 months. 134 weeks. 943 days. 
22,632 hours. 1,357,920 minutes. 81,475,200 seconds.


I know I'm stubborn and not easy to deal with. I always want things to happen my way. There are times when I would get upset for no reason at all. Sometimes, I feel guilty for picking up a fight over things that really make no sense. It really amazes me how you can manage your temper every time I show the worst part of me. How could you become so patient and understanding? You never left despite my regular mood swings. You were always there for me and it is something that I am truly thankful of. God knows how grateful I am for the happy and gloomy days that we've shared together. I have no idea how long we'd stay this way but I'm hoping for a happy ever after. The past 31 months in my life were perfect and that's all because of you. Thank you so much for staying. And most importantly, thank you for the never-ending coffee treats. You are my one and only coffee date ♥
