To the other half of my heart

Dear you,

You know who you are. Or at least I'd hope you would after almost a year and a half. I'm writing this letter to express my feelings of complete serenity when I'm with you, how it feels like we are the only two people on this planet when it's late at night, and many, many more emotions.

Where do I even start? Actually, I have an idea. Let's start at the very beginning. I had no idea when I met you that you would become this important to me. I remember being the shy, small girl that would follow you around school but never say anything because I was too scared to talk. I always had "big moon eyes" as you put them. Thankfully, you started most of the conversations. How mesmerized I was by the fact that someone as intelligent and creative and sweet as you could take interest in someone like me.

Flash forward a month from then and you told me you had to leave for a bit but you'd write to me. You were gone for three months and I missed you. I missed the tight, warm hugs you'd give me if you stumbled across me in the hallways or how you'd invite me to come visit you during third when you'd be out in the hall. I missed everything.

Finally you came back and my friend came up to me and told me you were looking for me. I can remember smiling as wide as I could and running down the stairs, tripping and bruising my knee in the process. Once we had finally found you I remember us running up to each other and hugging for 10 minutes straight. We weren't dating quite yet, surprisingly.

That day was the start of a whole new chapter in my life that quite frankly is my favourite one so far. And even though those memories are beautiful on their own, I think my favourite has to be the first time you were going to tell me you loved me and I interrupted by telling you I had to pee and forcing you to say it during truth or dare afterwards.

It's a year and a half from then now and we've battled countless storms together, but celebrated victories as well. Like when you started getting good grades in school again or when I got a pity pass for my calculus class. You are everything I have ever looked for in another human being and I love you. I'm in love with you. It's as simple and as complicated as that.

Our love is by far my favourite kind of love. Not too romantic but not too casual either. You'd take me out to dinner then we'd go home and lay in bed for three hours while we binge watch Netflix. Confessing things then turning the conversation into something funny.

Or even,

Talking about our future.
We have a jar in my room that's filled with money for an apartment once we are able to move out. Not much is in there right now but it's growing just like we both are as people. I know neither of us want to think about kids at the moment so we refer to our kids as our "cat children".

To conclude this letter, I'd like to say thank you for making me realize how much I'm worth and how good it feels to let someone in again after I've been hurt so many times in the past. Thank you for caring about me and thank you for caring about our future. Earlier in this letter I had mentioned that this chapter in my life that's spent with you is my favourite one. That being said, I hope this chapter is infinite.

"Anyday spent with you is my favourite day. So today my new favourite day"
