I still remember the first day we met,
I still remember our first conversation, our shared stories,
I still remember the first day you affirmed me,
I remember the first day you stared at me while singing in an event,
I remember our first photo together with our best smiles, like we knew each other for a long time,
But for me, these were nothing magical.
Each day of knowing you is just like a movie with a typical plot, nothing special, nothing to look forward to,
Like transcendent feelings.
But a year ago a twist happened, on one sunny day in a green grass field,
While others were walking, running, playing and chatting, I saw you, like no one was there, just you and me, like one of my favorite scenes in a movie ,
And I love that every time I walk through the halls and you were there on the other side, you would walk towards me to say “Hi.”
While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:
Up until that day, I found myself staring at the night sky, looking at the stars,
I saw you as one of them, a man full of wisdom, smart, pedant, a nobleman whom I could only admire from afar, hoping someday that you will shine for me, praying to God and hoping that it’s you.
But as a woman there is nothing I can do but wait or might as well let go of the feelings that are not meant to be.
The funny thing about it is sometimes I wish I could end this with the lyrics from one of my favorite Taylor Swift songs,
“Please don’t fall in love with someone else.”
But I prefer to end this by telling you that I pray I could tell all of these to you, and that I like you and that you are special to me.
