Thank You for taking care of me all this time, for giving me everything I deserve in the most appropriate proportion and pace, and teaching me that life is and should be of equal happiness and darkness, day and night. Throughout my 25 years of life, I have lived, learned and developed my understanding about how it feels to give and receive, to smile and cry at the same time, and to feel angry at You for not giving me what I prayed for but eventually appreciate that what I wanted was really not the best, at least for that time being. I grew up surrounded by a complete set of wonderful family members, who were always there to love me in ways I might not understand and be fond of but definitely made me feel worth being. So thank You.
I like numbers, and I like to count. That may be the reason why I always remember my age and have this image of the number ‘25’ all the time, just like how I am fully able to recall other numbers that define me in this world; my birth date, my ID card number, my passport number, my bank account number. I like to quantify things, I even imagine how much I have contributed to life if it was possible to be measured by definite numbers. And yes, it has helped me map out various elements of life in a more logical and systematical manner.
When you take a step back, you get a better horizon; a wider one, a wiser one. And at that point of time, you’ll truly believe that life is magical. No matter how brilliant we are, there will always exist an area which is untouchable by our minds, producing that ‘it’ factor that makes you realize that no numbers would have ever been so close in predicting the events in our lives. Magical.
You, the one who completes my life. Our love has never been selfish, has never been any sort of puppy-love, but instead a mature and well-thought feeling we developed for each other having in consideration all aspects that differentiate us yet unite us beautifully. I remember the first time we spoke about our feelings for each other, how we are so poles apart and might never be one. But we did. We fell in love and decided to give it a try. And it feels magical, so magical no numbers can enumerate. I thank God for bringing me to you, or you to me whichever the perspective. This relationship was unexpected and beyond my wants, it just happened as they say it will when things our meant to be. It’s been 3 years already, and I look forward to more. You’re my lucky number. :)
