To the Guy, Four Years Later

It has been four years. Four years since we agreed to take a chance, decided to be together. Let me confess, if I had known how full of fun and contentment and happiness the next four years would be, I would have deliberated less before making the decision. I had thought then, that I was simply "locking you in" so that you would remain my best friend. I hadn't imagined how much of the lover, the partner, the playmate, the parent you would become.

We talked last night of that night exactly four years ago, when we had met after many months, and for the first time after our feelings towards each other began to change, and, not wanting to waste a single precious moment of those three days, we had talked to each other till we could stay awake no longer and had fallen asleep holding hands.

We might have been less frugal about those moments if we had known how much time we would have together in the next four years, if we had known that in a little over two months, I would have moved to your city. On the other hand, we might have not.

I am grateful for what we have. I am so grateful that I have you.

The memories of the moment of choice of the right partner are a blessing in themselves. Be happy together always, you two.
