To the person I love the most,
I never thought I’d ever get a chance to love and be loved by you. We’ve come a long way from our IT Park moments. Who would’ve thought so much could happen in just 8 months?
In 8 months, we’ve become each others’ life partners, may it be as lovers or as brothers. In 8 months, we’ve known each other beyond our similarities to our stunningly great differences. In 8 months, we’ve both made each other both happy and sad in our very dynamic relationship. In 8 months, we’ve become the awesome-st duo anyone has ever seen.
In those 8 months, I’ve discovered how precious you are and how much potential you hold. You’re going a long way, just take one step at a time. And now that you’re 18, I hope that you’d learn to overcome all your weaknesses and to grow into what you’re really capable of. I’m not your number 1 fan. Not even your number 2. I’ll leave those slots for your mom and brother. I am most definitely number 3 though and I look forward to your success.
Thank you very much for everything. For helping me stand up again, for supporting me in my passion, and for loving me beyond my misgivings. I love you so much. Happy birthday!
