It’s been 365 days since the day before you.
For 25 years I had been living my life without you. It seems strange really, to think about all of the times that I sat awake at night simply wondering who you were. Had I met you before? Were we already friends?
When I think about the days and years before you, I feel so much. Emotions crash through my mind like a whirlwind and I think of loves lost and forgotten. I think of all the things I love that I’ve accomplished. I think of all of the holidays and parties where I wished you were by my side. I didn’t even know you then, but I longed to.
Last year, on this day I didn’t know you. I didn’t know that you had the most amazing hazel eyes that I would ever see. I didn’t know that someday I would sit for hours by your side, holding your hand and talking about our future, and our pasts.
I didn’t know that the very next day, you would capture my attention and never let it go.
I think about the emptiness I felt 365 days ago. The hopelessness and fear of never finding you. It’s funny how one day can change your world forever. It’s funny to think about the fact that 365 days ago from this moment, I didn’t know that the next 24 hours would change my life forever.
There’s no longer any emptiness inside of me. You have invaded my heart so thoroughly that I can never escape your love. I can’t imagine loving you even more than I do now in another 365 days, but we’ll see won’t we?
