The only secret I’ve ever kept from you is when I counted how many wrinkles you had when you were asleep.

We met on a confusing first day of college. That’s how I will call it. I was stumbling through people which obviously weren’t interested in meeting me and clumsy me bumped into the love of my life. That moment was the only time in my whole life that I felt grateful of being that clumsy, shy, awkward kid, because you were just the same as me. 

“Oh” became or hi since then too. We were both too red to even form a simple word as “hi”. I ran. I ran because my heart wouldn’t stop screaming of excitement. I ran because you were the only guy that had ever seen me directly into my eyes. I ran. And you came after me.  

I could feel how your laugh started to ignite with a slight squeaky noise. I laughed too. Not surprised at all at my lack of fitness I stopped running and you “caught me” as quickly as you caught my heart. We stared at each other. for once, not caring what people around us may say. We just stayed smiling and seeing each other souls, we were the centre of attention on both of our worlds.

I’m about to turn 90, you’re already 91 and nothing has changed. I still look at you and I see my forever and always. You are my entire life. We’ve been through everything. You know every single detail of me, physically and internally (literally). The best part is that we are still sharing together what life brings us as the two teenager lovers in college that we once were and still are every time we look at each other. 

Oh, and in case you didn’t notice, this is another of my ways to keep on showing you that I adore you.

  1. THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. Your capacity to create such romantic and heart-touching little stories is unbeliavable. Wouldn’t be surprising that one of these days one of your stories go viral. You deserve that. I mean, the world deserves to read you. 🙂 hugs!
