This is for all the times you make me smile.
I get scolded for smiling at my phone. My friends know that it’s you on the other side whenever I start smiling like a goofball. My friends think I’m weird for smiling at my phone so much. Sometimes when I walk down the streets, I would smile to myself because I thought of you, or because I saw something that reminds me of you. Everyday at about the time you would wake up, my phone would buzz and I would smile because I know it’s you. I don’t know how you do it, but you make me smile when no one else can.
This is for all the times you were there for me.
I know this is possible because we are in different timezones and the 12 hours gap between us makes it that much easier but thank you for all the times you were there for me. At 3am, when I feel like crap, I know I can count on you to talk me out of feeling like crap. When horrible things happen to me, I know you are there to listen and sometimes even help. When weird people post pictures of clowns on my facebook wall, you helped me delete them despite hating clowns. Thank you for being near even when you’re so far away.
This is for all the times you make me feel like I’m good enough.
You think I look amazing, even on my worst days. You think that I’m not fat, even on days when I can feel my tummy hating on me. You think that I’m smart, even when I can’t spell certain words. You think that I’m perfect, even when I know I’m not. You think that I’m pretty, even when I have no make up on and my hair bunned up. You think that I’m beautiful, even when I just woke up and look grumpy. You think that I sound nice, even when I have the sniffles and sound like a man. Because you think I’m good enough, I’m beginning to think that maybe yeah, I am good enough.
This is for all the times you make me feel loved.
You refused to talk to me, or at least tried not talking to me when I refuse to eat. You would nag at me when I refuse to sleep. You threatened to beat up this one guy who tried to take advantage of me. You got upset when I refuse to see a doctor when I’m sick. You frowned and nagged when I refused to take my meds. You thought about getting on a plane when I told you about the worst thing that has ever happened in my life. You threatened to beat up Indonesia for all the smog they were sending us, making it difficult for me to breathe. It’s these little things that you do. ♥
This is for all the times you think you’re right.
Tomatoes are one of the most tasty things in the world, but I agree to disagree you because that is how much I like you. Squirtle is not the best starter Pokemon, but I let you think that because that is how much I like you. Tulips are not daisies, but I let you think that tulips and daisies can produce a mixed baby because that is how much I like you. I am always right and I always win, but I let you think that sometimes you are right, and I let you win sometimes because that is how much I like you. :3
This is for all the times you go all apeshit geeky.
Watching rockets take off makes you incredibly excited. Star Wars and Star Trek makes you oddly happy. Everything that’s space related gets you beaming from ear to ear. You read weird articles that no one really reads. You believe in science with so much passion. Merchandises make you very, very happy and you can’t resist buying them. Having internet at home again put you over the moon because that means that you can game again. To most people this might be insanely weird, but I think that it’s cute. Remember that time when you were worried that I might think that you’re more nerdy than you put off? You’re fine.
This is for all the times you make me fall harder for you.
Your smile is so contagious, it leaves me smiling the entire day. Your eyes, they shine brighter than the stars. The way you look at me, makes me feel like I’m the only girl in the world. Everything you do makes me adore you more. I know it’s hard because we didn’t planned on this, and I know you’re trying to take things slow because 9000 miles is more torturous than we thought it was, and I know that slow is agonizing because denying it makes it more difficult. Despite all of that, I know it’s worth it. I know you’re worth it. Someday, baby, someday. ♥
