Happy 21st birthday darling! And happy 99th day anniversary!
Looking back, I didn’t plan to date anyone so soon after breaking up in March last year. But you came into my life in October and without both of us knowing, things changed from then.
I still remember our first meet up. It was for Corpse Bride in Times Square, 6.30 p.m. show. You were late because of the Friday traffic.
I have never told you this before, but I really had a good time that day. Maybe it's just me getting along well with younger people. Or it was something comforting and endearing about you.
Whatever it was, I began to hang out with you more. We went on to watch Harry Potter, Cello, Zathura, Narnia and SPL.
The thing that stopped me from initiating anything was you being younger. I had wanted someone closer to my age.
As things didn’t turn out as planned and I didn’t get to meet you today, I was looking at testimonials from your friends and acquaintances. I can’t help but smiled at the way they have described you.
It is said that how one’s partner treats the people around him is a good gauge of character and personality. You passed with flying colours.
Thank you for being you.
Thank you for being my boyfriend.
Thank you for choosing me.
Words can’t fully describe the feelings I have towards you now. I would try, though, with words which are not mine.
The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved - loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves. -Victor Hugo
The purpose of relationship is not to have another who might complete you, but to have another with whom you might share your completeness. -Neale Donald Walsch
We need a witness to our lives. There's a billion people on the planet... I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you're promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things ... all of it, all of the time, every day. You're saying - Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness. - Susan Sarandon, Shall We Dance
For the past fourteen weeks that we have been together, we have had our fair share of disagreements. We are quite different in our personalities.
I am more left-brained and you right-brained. I care about what happens in the world, whereas you less so. We look at things differently; you from a humanistic point of view and me from a pragmatic one.
I also realize that you are who you are. Although there are things which I would like you to act or do differently and I would be happy if you did, I know that that would only make you, less you.
And I wouldn’t want that.
I am aware that I am not perfect either. Love is seeing perfection in imperfection.
I just want to say that, you have brought joy into my life, you have shown me what giving means, you have taught me lessons in life.
Whatever it is, you know that I am always here for you. May we have many more birthdays to celebrate together.
I want to see you grow.
I want to see you become the person you will eventually be.
I want to be part of your life.
I just want YOU.
