What she says: I’m fine
What she means: Surround me with Tsum Tsums
time away used to frighten me. even a few weeks ago, i was afraid of any time gone from each other. fear that you would distance yourself, that we wouldn’t be able to communicate, that somehow - someway the distance would crumble us, and i wouldn’t find my way back.
this time, it’s different. yes i miss you. yes i long for you to be back already, and i dream of our trip and our future. but this time, no matter how unstable the future is, i feel secure in this. in us. because it isn’t just me missing you, and it isn’t just me in this relationship. we are truly a team. and it’s been such a long time coming. i’m sorry i can’t put this in more eloquent terms. but all i know is that this is what i want for the rest of my life.
whether you are near or far from me, you are the only one i long for, my love. and i am certain in a way that i have never been before because every night i lay down and every morning i rise to ask God to allow you to be mine for each day, and each time He has answered “yes”. so here’s to the distance we feel for now, for the distance we will feel next semester, and all the closeness that is to come for the rest of our lives. thank you for being my forever. as you told me the other night, as long as we love each other, we will always be with one another. my heart is with your heart.
sweet dreams my love. we see the same stars.
