“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes closed.” ~ Pablo Neruda
Guess who has an anniversary today?! To commemorate the occasion Z drove half an hour to pick me up from work so we could spend a whopping ten minutes together before I had to go clean the house. Our real celebration was date night on Tuesday but I’m grateful that I got to spend even a few fleeting moments with him. It boggles my mind that we’ve only been together a few months because it literally feels like years. Tonight we reminisced about our ‘picnic’– sharing an expensive bottle of Malbec at night on a blanket in my favorite cemetery– an event that seems like it was ages ago. We’ve been through so much and created enough memories to last a lifetime in our short time together. I know it sounds crazy to say I’ve found my soul mate considering our brief time together….yet that’s exactly what’s happened. He’s my missing puzzle piece. Not only do we share a brain but we share a soul. I’ve always said we’re the same person. I’ve known somebody for half a year and they know me better than I know myself. Z, I love you unconditionally, just as you love me.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
