I'm far far away in a distant land, and I don't see you anymore. Not as much I would have desired to. Not in all your colours and their shades, not in your details. But you're with me on my mind, as you always will be. A part of you will always live in me, like it does, reminding me so constantly of our time together.
Tonight feels like one of those nights where I'd ask you to continue speaking, even when you had nothing to say, only to listen to the vast dimensions of your thoughts. One of those nights that I would choose to sing for you; you'd join in and I would reprimand you for the incorrectness of the lyrics. Or the night that we strolled along the moonlit shores listening to lethargic waves, letting them whisper their stories as we whispered ours. The night of endless adventures. The night that felt shorter than the conversations we wanted to share.
Tonight there's only gratitude. For being my shore that I lashed my troubled waters at, the one where we built our castle of memories when nothing else seemed to remain.
For choosing to walk into my life and being the closest definition of "altruistic love" that I will ever know. For doing everything within your reach, and beyond to make me happy.
For calling me "sunshine", even when I brought in more darkness than I should have.
For loving me even in my broken fractions and parts, when I couldn't find the whole of me. For helping me find myself back, not closing your doors on me everytime I walked away, for the kindness.
For allowing me to love you. For letting me know just how much I could. For setting the standards high for any other person that will ever enter my life.
I cannot tell you how grateful I am for you. And how apologetic I am to have caused the pain and the tears- something I can never forgive myself for.
Today is your day, and if there's anything I want you to know it is that
I love you.
In all your colors and shades. In your most intricate details. In the purest form of love I have ever felt.
