When we first got together I had a hunch that our relationship would last a while since we had had some feelings for each other for about two years already. As our relationship progressed, there were times when I thought maybe it’d be easier if we broke up. But the thing was I didn’t want easy; I wanted you. We went through some pretty tough lows, but the highs in our relationship made it all worth it. I knew that I wanted to be with you for the rest of my life. I couldn’t imagine a future without you in it. We always tried to be realistic with each other though, saying that yeah we want to get married in the future, but since we’re so young so much can happen before it gets there. Even though I didn’t want to, I had to acknowledge the fact that there was a good chance that it wouldn’t work out in the end.
But now those thoughts are leaving my mind because I know it’s going to be me and you in the end. Something that seems pretty insignificant was actually a big deal to me.
When I was visiting you in Riverside I must’ve caught some bug or had food poisoning because I was ridiculously ill for a night. Luckily, I had you there to take care of me. You’d wake up whenever I woke up, hold me when I slept, bring me water and a towel for my head, do anything I needed. I didn’t want to get you sick, but you never mind that. When I was feeling really crappy you still kissed me and told me I was amazing and that you loved me so much. It didn’t matter if I was going to get you sick because you just wanted me to feel better. I felt so lucky to have such a great guy.
That’s when I knew that you and I would make it ‘til the end.
