Yessssss... I will cherish it for ussssss... my preciousssss... won't let them take it from ussss...
Okay before you start thinking my brain has finally conked out read on.
My Sunday morning was as sunny as it can ever be though it was raining outside our unit. Nope. I was not going to let anything rain on my Sunday morning because my baby and I were celebrating our first month of taking the plunge into loving one another yesterday, June 5, 2005. I was as happy as I could be and definitely grateful to the Lord Almighty for giving me a beautiful boyfriend, partner and friend in my life.
He asked me to wake up at six in the morning and to wake him up when I do. I rang his phone, I was surprised that he was already wide awake at that time. That was very surprising because he is not the kind who wakes up really early on weekends. Well, not that early.
My bell rang and when I opened my door a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a dozen of white gerbera and five stargazers and a lot of cute green stuff (I don't know what to call them hehe) were on my doorstep. I looked around and then I saw him peering hehe from behind a wall. He was soh cute and adorable, wish I could have captured that moment!
He was unable to hug me right away because my mom was there but when he got the chance, he hugged me and said, "Happy First Month" my heart melted! He took pictures of me. I was surprised that he brought his Cybershot. Normally, we'd take pictures using my 6630. We had breakfast at home when he said, he was really planning to take me someplace but unfortunately, there was a storm coming. He was going to take me to Tagaytay, he has carefully planned that day and well, the storm has ruined it for us. I love it that he went so far as to plan each part of that day, he said we were to have breakfast and then we were to hear mass in Tagaytay. I was touched deeply too by the fact that he was disappointed that we cannot go because of the storm and because my mom will not allow it. Well she half-heartedly agreed but *** did not want to push it anymore. In fact, I was the one who insisted to try asking mom if we can go because I could see how disappointed he was.
We were driving aimlessly around CCP because he was wondering where we can go. I could tell he was really racking his brain because he wanted our first month's celebration to be really special. I don't know how I deserve to have a super thoughtful person in my life but I am thankful anyway. I knew he was trying to hide his grave disappointment but it was just too much for him to hide. My heart went out to him but at the same time, I really felt special to him at that moment. How I felt is beyond description.
I suggested instead to go to Megamall so we can go ice skating, we have not done that yet and so I thought that could make things special for us. He said he wanted to bring me to a place where I have never been to yet, Pagudpod! hehe... He brought me to Libis City Walk. We saw A Lot Like Love and then we ate at Fazoli's. After lunch and a lot of pictures later we strolled around the plaza and he found us a bench to sit on. Pretty much Notting Hill-ish :)! More pictures taken and more people ogled at later, I asked him to walk around the plaza too so I can watch him this time hehe... I watch other people and I wanted to watch him. i wanted to take pictures of him too! To my surprise, he really stood up and started walking around hehe! He was so cute. I want to learn how to take photos, and I was practicing that day and he was teaching me. I like it that he was teaching me. He went to the garden and picked a flower. A really small flower and then he sat beside me on the bench again.
He put his arm around me and then gave me the small flower, "Take this as a token of my love for you and as a symbol of our relationship... " or something to that effect, I was already giggling because I really found it sweet. And then he opened his closed fist and revealed to me two silver rings. Okay, at this point, if you already know me, it is not very hard for you to imagine that my eyes were falling out of their sockets and I was already gasping for air. Trying to contain myself but in vain. I was laughing and close to tears, I took the rings. Inside was an inscription, hehe... like in Lord of the Rings huh? I said kidding him.
My ring had his name: *** 05-05-05
His ring had my name: +++ 05-05-05
Really sweet. The ring fit my finger perfectly... That sneaky sweet guy got my size while he was trying to find out what his ring size was in RP before we saw Madagascar. He asked if he could fit a ring and the woman at Silver Works asked if I wanted to fit to. I did fit and there we found out what my size was. Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky! He took the ring and put it on my right ring finger. I took his ring and put it on his finger too, "I (my name) hereby give you this ring as a token of my love and undying faithfulness..." I forgot what I said because my head was up in the clouds... Everything was hazy, we were all that was vivid all the rest was a blur.
I am very happy to wear this ring. I feel blessed. I am not used to wearing rings but I enjoy wearing it because I love what it represents. What it stands for. I am afraid everytime I take it off that I might lose it. I pray that the power of the Ring will not blind me and cause me to be too posssssessssssive about my preciousssss... and to always be worried that precioussss will be sssstolen from usssss.... I love him so much and I want us to grow in love every day.
After our mushy moment, we got to shop at Nike Attitude, they had a sale and then we played one game of bowling. He was soh good and I was terrible at it. I hope I didn't embarass him. My average score is really 30, I got a 34 he got a 165. After the game, we heard mass at San Isidro and then he took me home. The streets were flooding already but he stayed for dinner still. After he went home, I thought that caps the celebration. I was wrong. He texted me at around eleven and he said:
At around this time a month ago, I confessed my love to you. Time passed so swiftly and with each passing day I find myself more in love with you, more happy that I have you. I love you baby. No reasons to tell for doing so. No need for magic potions to make it work. Just my love that's pure and unconditional. Hoping to share this love to you for a lifetime. Happy First Monthsary!!! I love you soh much 'by! Hugs adn kisses for you. Uhmmm! Mwuaah! :)
"Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outwards together in the same direction."
- Antoine De Saint-Exupery 1900-1944
from "Airman's Odyssey
"Love doesn't make the world go round.
Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.
- Franklin P. Jones
If I were pressed to say why I loved him,
I feel that my only reply could be:
'Because it was he, because it was I'. - Michel de Montaigne
The supreme happiness of life consists in the conviction that one
is loved; loved for one's own sake--let us say rather, loved in
spite of one's self; this conviction the blind man possesses.
To be served in distress is to be caressed. Does he lack anything?
No. One does not lose the sight when one has love. And what love!
A love wholly constituted of virtue! There is no blindness where
there is certainty. Soul seeks soul, gropingly, and finds it.
And this soul, found and tested, is a woman. A hand sustains you;
it is hers: a mouth lightly touches your brow; it is her mouth:
you hear a breath very near you; it is hers. To have everything
of her, from her worship to her pity, never to be left, to have
that sweet weakness aiding you, to lean upon that immovable reed,
to touch Providence with one's hands, and to be able to take
it in one's arms,--God made tangible,--what bliss! The heart,
that obscure, celestial flower, undergoes a mysterious blossoming.
One would not exchange that shadow for all brightness!
The angel soul is there, uninterruptedly there; if she departs,
it is but to return again; she vanishes like a dream, and reappears
like reality. One feels warmth approaching, and behold! she is there.
One overflows with serenity, with gayety, with ecstasy; one is a
radiance amid the night. And there are a thousand little cares.
Nothings, which are enormous in that void. The most ineffable
accents of the feminine voice employed to lull you, and supplying
the vanished universe to you. One is caressed with the soul.
One sees nothing, but one feels that one is adored. It is a paradise
-Victor Hugo from Les Miserables (My favorite part in the whole book)
