Came out of my screwy (literally) dating phase with a lesson to never be that giving partner again. I'd be the selfish one. The Princess. The Taker. I'd take, and I'd put up with nothing. Continually highlighting the flaws of my partner. And with that, the magic is dulled. With that, the gratitude diminishes together with the joy that it brings.
Here, I count my blessings. I count my blessings from you. I count my blessings that is you. The never-ending list of you being my pillar, cleaning out my wound, putting up with my allergies, going through my assignments, cooking for me, picking me up from the airport, carrying my bag throughout the streets, fending of drunks, celebrating my birthday, flying me over, showing me your friends and the tears, all those tears.
You will always occupy a special place in my heart.
