So here it is, the last day of her being with me before Summer takes her away. It’s been a great year together & I’ve loved every single second of it. From semi-formal to holidays spent with each other, these memories that we’ve created & shared will forever hold a special place in my heart. I can’t think of anyone else I would have rather spent this year with. Ever since that first date in Jersey City, I knew that you were going to mean so much to me but I didn’t realize how quick it would happen. I’m really happy that things moved at the rate they did because if not, it’s hard to say if we’d be this close. When I say “this close” I mean close enough to not only know what each other is thinking but also to be able to pick up on whenever something is bothering me or when I’m dodging topics that are the underlying reason of my moods. Also that we can lay in bed in pretty much any position & be able to be comfortable with each other is pretty amazing.
Without further adieu, the real reason why I decided to write this is because I realized how much I’m going to miss you. No longer am I going to be five minutes away from your beautiful smile. No longer shall empty days without you turn into spontaneous cuddle sessions at night. When I wake up in my bed, I’ll be alone; wishing to flop around to see you there next to me. Those are the times that I will truly treasure. It doesn’t have to be some extravagant outing or a significant date in order for a memory with you to stick out in my mind. The simplicity of laying awake next to each other talking or the soft sound of your breath before sleep is more than enough for me. You see, people sometimes fail to notice the little treasures in life but rather take joy in the legendary things. Although that’d be nice to have all the time, it’s never going to be like that. That is why I don’t care about those nights when we could have gone out but instead we just stayed back & laid in bed together. Those are the times I cherish the most. It is in moments like those that you have me 100% for the entirety of the night & we just get to be ourselves to each other. Those nights are some of the best nights I’ve ever had because it was just you & me. I love you, babe.
