You told me earlier you were crashing by. Needed help on your homework, I figured.
"Have you eaten?," your text message says.
To which I replied, “I’m about to…”
"What do you mean why?”
"Why are you awake from your nap already?"
Yea, I told you about my untimely nap times.
"Because I felt hungry. Why?"
"I bought you dinner."
And then you came, with a box of pizza. Ah, thoughtful delivery!
From now on, I know, I’m gonna think of you too whenever I think of pizza.
I slumber at dawn,
and wake at twilight.
Nyx had adopted me,
now daughter of the night.
"Whatever some fool made you altogether terrified of, you need not to be anymore…with me. I won’t let that happen. Ever. I promised to accept you and for all of who you are the moment I said "I love you" and trust me, I profoundly honor promises."
And just like that, you’ve cleared me from the wreckage and damages both time and I had brought my self into.
1. Go on as many adventures as possible.
I hope you’re going everywhere and doing everything. Hang out with your friends. Travel a lot. See as much of the world as possible. Try as many exotic foods as you can. Climb mountains. Join Fun Runs. Go diving and skydiving. Explore this beautiful world. I hope you’re starting to check off items on your bucket list because one day, when we’re finally together, I would like to hear all about it. One day you will share all those stories with me, and maybe we’ll try to do them together too.
2. Find yourself.
I hope you’re taking time to get to know yourself. Take time analyzing what you really want to do in life. Love yourself and be strong for yourself. Some people enjoy being needed but I what I like is to be wanted. You are your own person and I hope you know that you don’t need anyone to complete you. One day we will be there for each other not because we can’t live without each other but because life is much more colorful when we’re together.
3. Live your life.
I hope you’re taking risks. I hope you’re not hiding under the covers to make as few mistakes as possible. Go out and make good and bad decisions. Do not be afraid of pain or failures. They are there to make you appreciate the good things. I hope you’re as in love with life as I am. Enjoy the sweetness and bitterness of this roller coaster ride. Life is short and I don’t want you missing out on anything.
4. Take good care of yourself.
I hope you’re keeping yourself healthy and fit. Eat vegetables. Eat fruits. Hydrate. Get as much sleep as you can — more than you think you need. Exercise. Do all these for yourself and for me, and for our future kids. One day when we’re already both wrinkly, we will enjoy the senior citizen benefits together. We will play bingo and have weekly brunch with all of our children and their children. Take good care of yourself because I would like to grow old with you.
5. Pray for us.
I hope you’re praying with me every night before sleeping. I hope you’re praying for me as much as I am praying for you. Pray that we may meet. In the right place. In the right time. Because I’m hoping and praying for the same thing, too.
