“It wasn’t really too hard to believe when I fell in love with you. It wasn’t really too hard to believe when I started picturing my future with you. It wasn’t really hard to believe when I realized I wanted to grow old with you and spend each special moment with you until we finally die but it really was hard to believe that you were a step ahead than me in everything we thought of. Sooner that I started to realize and believe it, harder did it become to love you but then came the day when tables turned. The day when I finally realized that no matter what happens, you’d be sticking with me until the very last day of our lives. The very moment I realized it, being in love with you was the simplest thing ever.
“I’m writing you this letter because I believe that more often than not, people fall in love and don’t realize it when they finally realize it, they say it to everyone alive on this planet apart from that one person they should really be telling it to. I do not want to be one of those. I really don’t. I want that we spend each and every single day of our lives together, never wondering if anyone of us is scared or shattered. I wish to be one who is proud to have you as much as loud I would say that. I want us to be as together with each other at bad times as much as we’d want to be together when everything is perfectly fine. I want that we love each other the same when we are laughing our tummies out or when any one of us falls short of life and wishes to be all alone. There are a few things I’d want you to know, even if they don’t matter. I’d still want you to know them and remember them, specifically at times when you feel low.
“Honey, there will be times when one of us feels as lonely as one could never even imagine, that is when I want you to know that in all the silence you hear, I will always be there by your side to stand with you, hold your hand and let you know that if I can’t possibly solve what troubles you, I will still be there to face half of it with you. That is what we agreed on, to be an equal part of each other. Whatever we face, happiness or sorrow, we face it together. As it turns out, people do stick together when in happiness. After all, that’s what we are all looking for, isn’t it? I say, that let’s stick with each other through our happiness, laugh together, have all the fun together, be the reason behind each other’s laughter, if we are not, let’s just be part of the happiness of each other, no matter whatever the reason maybe. Apart from that, though, when we finally get home, let’s stick around when one of us is not happy too. Let’s sit together and talk about it, if in case you don’t wish to talk about whatever’s troubling you, let’s just sometimes get a beer, sit out on the porch or on the terrace and say nothing but have our beer in silence. Let’s be together even when one of us is having an awful time and create happiness together. For let’s face it, it is in our hands what we make of ourselves, why not make something beautiful?
“There will be times when we’d want to take time off of everything, including each other; let’s do it. There will be times when we’d feel falling down in our careers, let’s work on those things altogether and make believe that if we could create it once, we’ll be able to create it again. When we’re just starting with something new, let’s stick together and find out if it works or not, if not, let’s just make it work. A lot of times in life, sweet-pea, it happens that we wish to deal with everything alone, a lot of times does it happen that we look for support. Let’s not stay quiet about anything and know it clearly that we love each other enough to understand each and every word of ours. Let’s make it work when we want someone to be with us and fight everything all together, then rejoice it with a funny or overwhelming moment. When we want to do it all alone, let the other one be and try doing what they want to, yet be sure that if at any point of time, there’d arise a need for the other, we’ll be there. When we finally accomplish something or the other on our own, let’s just let the one have all the share of the happiness and stand there smiling, to watch the other one dance and rejoice in victory and happiness.
“There is nothing as powerful in this world as the power of trust and faith. Let us have that in each other just the way we already do and make the other one realize it that we really do love each other beyond what this world can ever believe. Maybe this is all too soon to be heard of but the point is, as close as we already are, does it not make sense to fool around all the time, to laugh our tummies out, to laugh together until the time we probably choke, tease each other and be each other’s partner-in-crime, when at the same time, be a go-to for each other when in trouble, or the shoulder to cry on. I believe that it isn’t of shame to accept when you are in love with someone. That is possibly the best thing that ever happens to a soul, regardless of however much happiness or sorrow does it bring. Make believe that whatever happens, we’re all coming out of it together, laughing hard at its face. As often as people don’t say it out loud, I want you to know in the most cliché form ever that I’m in love with you, and I know that things probably seem scary at one point or the other, maybe I would feel short of these words someday too, maybe there will be things none of us would be able to help but that would never mean that we stop trying. Failure shall never be the reason that we stop trying. We shall always come out of everything with a victory knowing this extremely well that we’re a PART of each other’s life and not each other’s LIFE. We shall play our parts real well and never let any other part of life ruin it as a whole, not even ourselves. I believe that tells you how special this is to me, but more than that, how special we are to ourselves, as beautiful individuals.
