From Our Readers: We Planned a Life Together
The day I met you, I already knew you were the one. I seriously thought that that moment happen only in movies. But believe me, everything about our first meeting is still on my mind. There was really something about the way you smile.
You're not my type. You're actually everything that I never wanted in a man. But then, love happened.
I tried my very best to ignore you. I've done things to forget you, but I can't. I fell in love with you, and it's all because you we're always there. Four months, that's all at took for us to fall in love. We had plans for an entire lifetime. Two kids, us, living in the beautiful province because you want us to live a simple life.
All throughout our relationship, I've been annoying, moody. Yet you still loved me the same. You never failed to make me feel like a princess. But then, for some reason, you just left me. Our colorful world suddenly turned black and white. We never lost communication. I even tried begging for you to come back. Come back to me, baby, I need you badly, I said.
But you never did.
Life goes on. I made myself busy and spent more time with my friends, family, school, and the little things. And the Lord always lends His shoulder to prop me up.
Two years of us being together. Just two years. But that was genuine love. We might have hurt each other but those memories will be kept in my heart for a lifetime. Thank you for everything. I have learned to pick myself up now.
