This Is For You

This is for you:

My walk by the beach on a rainy day.
My desert stargazing.
My 1 am late night thoughts.
My dose of coffee at 10 PM.
My breakfast date at 4 in the morning.
My late night drives.
My deepest secrets.
My spontaneous adventure.
My 3am cravings.
My beer on a cold midsummer night.
Lastly, my number one fan.

I’m always grateful for having an annoying friend like you.

You may be a pain in the ass, but you’re my pain in the ass.

In a world full of realists and hopeless romantics, we managed to stay neutral. You showed me the pros and cons of my decisions. You taught me how to live more carefree, not giving a fuck about anything or anyone at all. You taught me that it’s okay to be weak sometimes at the lowest points of my life. You taught me how to live as a human, making mistakes and being imperfect.

You taught me how to accept things as they are.
And that, I am forever in your debt.

I didn’t know when or how we clicked. Our friendship was an unexpected turn of events. We had something going on back then, yes, but I knew it was much more than that. Maybe we didn’t work out because I know being friends was much better than being in a relationship full of maybes and I don’t knows.

Because our story is for a lifetime, with no expiration date. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
