FC: Into the Night
1: Celebrating our Two Year Anniversary
2: ~ Love ~ True love stories never have endings. ~Richard Bach
3: An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.
4: Love begins in a moment, grows over time, and lasts for eternity.
6: Zaida, I would not have imagined us two years later, still together. Yet, here we are. I wanted to do something different. I wanted you to know how I felt but avoid retelling the same story. We both know the content within each chapter of our story. For today, let's reinvent the tale of our love.
7: It doesn't matter where you go in life, what you do ..... it's who you have beside you.
8: We have changed over the years, but the sparkle in your eyes is as bright as ever, and my love for you is even stronger.
9: XO | She loves him, I know that this won't change Yet, I want her, I need her I find this thinking quite strange When did the feelings begin? Did I miss its cue? Damn, she's here. I must act like... I blurt out, "Zai, I love you." She's taken aback, I can tell by her eyes They give her away time after time She's smiling - I've reached an all time high Will I finally win and claim my prize?
10: Side by side, year by year... | "Cai, that's sweet. I'm flattered if anything. But-" The conjunction produces an icy sting. "I can't be with you. It was a momentary fling." My ears perk up. She recognized it too? Shall I speak more on it? What's a guy to do? "I think we should distance ourselves, if only for a bit. Get a grip on our emotions. See if this is really what it is.."
11: Knowing you will be with me in all my tomorrows, makes my today so wonderful.
12: I continue to stare. I know what I feel. "Are you questioning whether... our feelings are real?" Her bowed head snaps up. "No, not at all. I just think we need to catch ourselves now before we fall..." "In love?" I cut her off. "I'm already on the ground." I reach my hand to her. "But I won't push you down. I'll wait for you, for as long as you need. But don't make me wait forever for you," I desperately plead.
13: It doesn't matter where you go in life, what you do ..... it's who you have beside you.
14: We are living happily ever after...
15: Together is the best place to be! | I kiss her tenderly on her head and turn to leave My heart hanging by a single thread If she tells me to move on I know I will not I have dreamed of our love I have created and filed mesmerizing thoughts. I'm turning away. I can hear him slowly coming. I turn back to her My head now, numbing.
16: Knowing you will be with me in all my tomorrows, makes my today so wonderful. | He's going to touch her but not the way I know how I look at my queen and as I see him I take a cautionary bow. "Good night my queen." I bend to kiss her skin "Good night, dear knight," she moans I look at him and grin. She is already mine. It is carved on her heart. You may be her King now But she was my queen from the start.
17: Away on my horse, I ride into the night Away from my beloved queen, she away from her shining knight. I am home in my cottage She resides on her throne I love her so much. My love she now owns A knock on my door makes me jump to my feet I reach for the door But am faced with an empty street.
19: I look both ways and nothing is found My eyes shift slowly and I look down There at my feet, on the dirty, unleveled ground Is a small, shiny object It's my beloved queen's crown. I bend to pick it up and I feel her hands on my shoulder. "I've thought about this dear knight, the fling is now over." "You choose me?" "I chose you just like you thought I would. I loved you more than I thought I ever could. I loved you since the beginning of time." She touches my forehead to hers "And now I'm yours, and you are mine."
21: I lift her to my horse and follow up after. As I grab hold of the reins, All I hear is her laughter. "This has gone on too long, dear knight. For two years we've loved in the night." I turn around to her, Giving her a quick glance, similar to a cursory. I whisper, "I love you Zaida and Happy Anniversary."
