When people ask me how we met, I just answer that I don’t really know because I feel that I have known you for all my life. I know that it sounds like a huge cliché, but it’s true. And I am sure that they think that I am exaggerating. But, love is all about exaggeration. Sometimes, they may even think that I am crazy. But isn’t love some sort of craziness too?
Well, I admit it. I have always been crazy about you. For me, it seems as if you were always in my life. So long before I met you, I knew that I would. Without understanding exactly why, I was holding back from anyone else that tried to enter my heart. I hadn’t really loved anyone else before you. Not the way I have loved you. Because I was reserving my heart only for you. A moonwalker they called me. Maybe I was. Because I was thinking of you all the time. Day and night. It seemed reckless, since I hadn’t met you yet. But, what was I supposed to do? It just happened to me.
Anyway, I felt that I knew you at the time, because I have been picturing you in my mind since always. You have been coming to my dreams almost every night for years before you finally came into my reality to make it more beautiful than my dreams. So, I always knew that you existed somewhere out there. And that I would eventually find you.
I knew that you were born sometime, somewhere so we could be together. I felt that you have come into this world so I could love you. And I insisted on existing only for you too before I even heard a single word about you. Before I saw your face or heard your voice for the very first time. Before I knew your name. Before everything. And it didn’t matter. I kept on waiting. I kept on dreaming of you.
I think that I even loved you before I met you. I guess I was in love with the idea of you and I had been looking for you all my life; I was living for you without even knowing that I was. There is no “why?” in that. And I can’t really explain how or when it happened either. It just seems to me that I have always loved you. Since our first kiss under the stars that is, since the first time I laid eyes on you, since I was born, since the dawn of time actually. I may sound a bit confused and melodramatic, but believe me, I am totally sure about one thing. I have imagined you long before I met you and when you have finally come into my life you were everything that I have dreamed of. You were all of it.
So, please don’t ask me if we are soulmates. Because, I can’t tell you. Frankly, I don’t know. Don’t go asking me if we will be together forever. I can’t answer that either. The only thing I know is that I love you. And that is all you need to know.
I have always loved you from time zero to infinity.
I am not sure but doesn’t that count for forever?
