I’m PRETTY sure that we fell in love in 7th grade. Our “song” was “My Boo” by Usher.
“There’s always that one person that will always have your heart, you never see it comin’ cause your blinded from the start, know that you’re that one for me, it’s clear for everyone to see, ooh baby.”
When I moved away, it broke your heart. We tried to keep in touch but what can I say.. we were only 13. A few years down the road we sort-of had a long distance “thing”, I’d say. We’d text all day, every day. You’d tell me goodnight and good morning. I would see you on holidays when I visited. I was still in love with you, even after all those years.
When I found out that you were with her, I was shocked. I was thinking.. I literally just talked to him yesterday. That’s the day that YOU broke MY heart. I guess you just needed a way to get back at me. That whole year sucked for me. I had fun with my friends and stayed busy with school. I even had a few flings, but you were always in the back of my mind. Always.
My parents finally told me that we were finally moving back after I graduated high school, five long years later. I heard that you and your girlfriend at the time broke up and thought “Good, he deserves that.” A month or so later, still before I moved back I got a text message when I was in the local Target parking lot. Crazy how I still remember where I was. It was from you. I was so mad.. and sooo confused. I was really short with you and sort-of mean, I admit. After a few weeks I warmed up a little, though.
When I moved back, we started to hang out. We would go to your room and put a movie in. I couldn’t name a single movie we watched. Well, we didn’t actually “watch” them anyways. At the end of the summer, you asked me to be your girlfriend. You had this whole cute thing planned but it ended up not working out, so you just asked me in the car on the way home. It was enough for me.
As sophomores in college now, eight years after we first started out as “boyfriend and girlfriend,” I’m ready to put everything aside and marry you. Right now. Of course, it would probably be smart to wait till we graduate college, but I am certain that the man I will spend the rest of my life with, will be you. You are everything I could ever want in a boyfriend, in a best friend. I don’t know what I’d ever do without you. Just please don’t ever break my heart again. And I PROMISE to never break yours.
I’ll forever be yours. I love you.
