From Our Readers: She Is in Love with Her
Love is only a fraction of what I feel for you. It is beyond love, you see. It is beyond every mystery that this universe holds.
I had no idea I would fall deeply in love with you. Yes, I am a girl who happened to be in love with someone of the same gender. We started out as friends, just like how almost everyone started. Then came our semestral break; that's when we started texting each other all the time. I was confused and scared at the same time because we were obviously heading out into something deeper than friendship. It was through text that you first told me that you love me.
I was confused and scared at the same time because we were obviously heading out into something deeper than friendship. It was through text that you first told me that you love me.
I felt the sincerity, like I heard your heart beating that time. But I was still cautious so I didn't say those three words back. I was very confused with my feelings. I thought to myself that I should feel this kind of attachment for a boy, not a girl. It was my first time to like a girl.
I spent nights thinking about you and only you. And suddenly, I just knew; I knew that I didn't want to lose what we have. I knew that what I feel for you is real and not just a trick of the heart. I embraced the love I have for you and the new life I am now living.
I just knew; I knew that I didn't want to lose what we have. I knew that what I feel for you is real and not just a trick of the heart.
You still haven't introduced me to your friends as your girlfriend because your parents still don't know about us. I understand that. You are buying yourself time to confess to your parents. I have been there myself so I understand. I was scared to say it to my parents because I was scared that they might resent me or anything but fortunately, they didn't. They still treat me like a princess, and I am very much blessed that they welcomed you warmly and that they trust us.
Our love is full of hardships since not everyone will approve of us, but what matters most is us. One day, your parents will know about us and they will accept us. I am sure of it because I never cease to pray for it. I have faith in us. I have faith in you. For almost six months now of being together, I regret nothing. I don't regret loving you.
You are one of the greatest things that happened in my life. You casted light on my direction. You are the anchor that keeps me still every time I feel like wavering. Love is too weak of a word to describe what I feel for you. But if it's the closest fitting word for my feelings, then let it be known that I love you.
I love you and I am not ashamed of it. I am proud enough to show you off to the world and I will wait for that day. I will wait for the day that all our dreams will come to life. I will wait for that one day when our hair turns grey, and you will still be by my side.
Thank you for all the letters you wrote me. Thank you for all the flowers you gave me. Thank you for loving me, warts and all. Thank you for constantly reminding me that you love me. Let me love you with everything I have. I love you in different languages and I will love you in any lifetime. And let me say it, love wins. Love reigns all the time. Love is the most beautiful gift you could give yourself and to someone else.
