(An open letter to the person whom I am going to love for a lifetime. — written sometime in early July.)
I don’t know who you are, what you are like, or how you will step into my life. But I know for a certain that you are some sort of an artist.
For I am no typical person. My ways, my words and my looks may not be attractive or beautiful to most people, but I know you will love every inch and every flaw I have. For I am a person whom only a true artist can love.
I am my own unique piece of art whom you’re going to love unexpectedly. I am going to make you laugh and make you, for a second, forget that you have even been hurt before. Whatever or whomever it was that hurt you, I am going to do my best to mend all your broken pieces for you, simply coming in my life at my worst days, is what will heal all my broken pieces.
I know you’ll have your fair share of demons, please allow me to touch your face and kiss it all away. I am not perfect, and please don’t expect me to be, but do allow me to love you and make all the hurt go away… Life is going to be tough on us, as it always is, but I know for certain that we will make it through no matter how complicated things will be.
For I have learned the hard way what it truly means to love someone unconditionally regardless of all flaws and this time, I want to give my heart, my life and my soul to one person who’s worth it. Know that you not being perfect will not be the definition of my love’s worth for you, against all odds, will always be deserving of my love and I hope that I deserve yours as well.
I don’t need a fancy house, a car, and jewelry… You don’t have to buy me expensive presents or take me on expensive dates for all those things will eventually fade and grow old over time; write me letters and take pictures witg me instead for words and photographs will always tell our never ending love story through time and I, in turn, will immortalize your soul through my words and thoughts.
Let me love you, as I have loved all those that have come and gone, but allow me to show you all the lessons I’ve learned. Allow me to love you, cherish you and take care of you for the rest of my life.
Whoever you are, wherever you are, however you would step into my life, know that from this day till the day I will meet you and the rest of the days we will spend together, that I love you. I love you now, I loved you then and I will always love you for you are my soul mate, God and life’s perfect gift for all the hardships and pain that I was able to overcome. You are designed for me and I, for you.
