believing in forever

I always thought, one day, I would outgrow my relationship with him. I never thought it could grow and mature. I thought it would be just an adolescent memory I'd look back on, like a crush on the captain of the football team.

But I realized we have more than that. Much much more. We have a history, a friendship. We listen to each other, we laugh together, we finish each other's lyrics. We dance, we sing, we dream, run around like kids, exchange endless stories from the most embarassing to the one secret you wouldn't even dare tell anybody else.

I don't have to pretend with him and he doesn't have to pretend with me. My feelings have never been more clear, and I now know they will never go away.

We've had our share of fights, of tears, of disagreements. We've broken up several times and have both sworn never to come back.

But I guess when you've found somebody who accepts you for who you are, somebody who knows the worst thing about you and yet chooses to stay, somebody who doesn't give up just because things got complicated, it wouldnt matter how many tears have rolled down your cheeks or how many times you've cried yourself to sleep.

What matters is that you have this person who makes everything worth it, every challenge, every risk. Somebody who, for the first time ever in your life, made you think: "Maybe forever isn't just a dream after all.."
