i remember on one of the last days of summer, we named off the events we would have to look forward to during the school year. to help ease the reality of knowing we'd only get weekends together once classes started back. he listed the dates of all of the breaks and days off. and he mentioned something about the dance of october twentieth. it seemed like such a long way away then. but time flew and suddenly i looked out the window to see that handsome young man walking up to the front porch. looking quite dapper with a bowtie. giving me that contageous smile and an i love you. its those three words that are anything but just three words, for they will only mean more everytime he says them. with his hands around my middle and mine resting on the back of his neck, we danced last night. he is a perfect gentleman when slow music plays. he is a burst of energy when fast music comes on. i'm absolutely certain that boredom will never find me, laughter always will, when i'm with him. after the dance, we listened to two is better than one // taylor swift ft. boys like girls while driving through the country, for a movie with his friends. he shared his water and popcorn with me. and let me fall asleep in the car on the way back home. i honestly cannot express how blessed i am to have him in my life. maybe its true that there just aren't words for everything. i think that being in love is not something that can be perfect. you both will fail and fall again and again. but when you both care more for eachother than you do yourself, a selfless love is a strong love. our relationship exists because Christ loved us first, i want us to forever pursue Him first. because He has blessed me with a loving guy. every second with him is a second spent with my best friend, the one i fell in love with last october at the homecoming dance.
