Boston, Massachusetts, USA – December 2010
August is ending in a few days time, and that marks Jon and I have gone through another year since our long-distance relationship ended. I have no idea how did time fly by so quickly, and I thought to myself that it must have been a good year that passed.
From the transition of us being students to a full-time working adult, from being away from each other three quarter of the year to seeing our chubby faces every other day – it was a huge change in our lifestyles. But we coped with it well, and we embraced the differences that we faced. Especially now that we have got Lumière Days, there would be more differences that we’d need to work out together and make it work.
But lately, my heart is constantly in flutter. That very day that you bought me ice-cream to cheer me up from the absolutely terrible day at work, you made me realised how much effort you’re willing to go through just to bring a smile to my face. The comfort I get from sharing the darkest worries of mine, the lame and random calls we make to each other through mid-day, the morning kisses before either of us leaves for work, and the laughters we share as we snuggle beside each other every night. I find myself falling in love with you constantly. Still. And it is as though I just fell into a new love. It doesn’t make any sense, but everything we share right now makes me smile right now. I am in such a good place I wouldn’t trade it for anything else.
Every day, knowing that you are healthy and alive, and that your heart is mine is the biggest blessing and reason for the smile on my face. This ferocious love, this crazy addiction, is the fuel to push me through everything that comes my way.
“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day…”
