I woke up too early and had just about three hours of sleep. And I saw you sleeping beside me, unaware of the world, oblivious to anything save your dreams.
We have been together all these years and I would admit that it had never been easy, but neither has it been too hard. We have had our own share of hurts and disappointment, triumphs and failures, and I’m proud to say that we overcame all of them because we were together in facing it.
There are things that I have done and am not proud of, but despite that, you still remain beside me, holding me up when I can’t bear to stand anymore, understanding me even when i push you away, loving me despite my faults and frailties. I am not a perfect person, and you know that, and you loved me still.
And as for me, I can’t imagine life without you. I have said more that once that I’ve had enough, that I can’t take it anymore, that I’d be better off away from you; yet I can’t take one more step out of the door, and even if I did, I always returned back home to you.
I can’t tell you enough how much you mean to me. You drive me crazy. Indeed, you do. But it’s because of that I love you more. you’re not perfect; far from it. I can list your faults and I would tire out before I’m through, but I wouldn’t have you any other way. I can’t imagine you being anything else but you. Because it’s the imperfect you that saved me from myself.
As I look at you sleeping there, peaceful and content, I renew my promise to love you through thick and thin, though all the years that are yet to come. I love you, my dearest.
