This quote is that like my love. It is two people coming from different directions, and yet meeting where it’s important. For almost five years now, Henry and I have been together, and there’s so much to look forward to with our future. For three summers I drove across this bridge to see the love of my life, and he did the same. We were both going to different schools, and yet twice a week we’d drive to see each other and every weekend was filled with dates in the city.
I guess when you love someone, you always make time for them. It was hard at times because as soon as I graduated high school, I went to the closest university, the one Henry went to also, but on my first day there, he transferred to another bigger university. He had to in order to take the classes he needed.
So another two years went by that way. When we made it through that, still running like crazy teenagers to see each other, I knew he was the one for me. The one I will always fight for and will always want to be with. By the time I had to transfer to another bigger university, I decided to follow Henry and move way farther north, so we could start a life together. After three years of dating, we moved into our first apartment together and started fall semester together as well. Walking to class with him and getting back home to see him was amazing and still is!
It’s truly having the most important thing with you at all times, like a pocket full of sunshine. Now that another two years have gone by, and we are approaching five years in just a few months, we have yet to decide where our love will take us again. Spring is coming and so is graduation. The one thing we do know is that the next chapter in our lives, after our five years of being in love, will be together, always. Our love will always remain like this sturdy bridge, strong, beautiful, and takes us to another place where it truly matters.
