First time I saw you, was in Singapore. You were eating with your friend and even the place was full of people and even though I couldn't see your face, you still managed to catch my attention. It was like you would have some kind of spot light on you and even if you wasn't really on my way. You were like a magnet for me and I had to do something what I wouldn't normally do. I had to come to your table, ruin your dinner and talk to you.
You were the most beautiful woman, I had ever seen and somehow I managed to get you to meet me later. You didn't give me your number, but I gave you mine. It took approximately 2 minutes after you called. I felt lucky.
Next week we had a date, at least I thought it was a date. Apparently you didn't think same, because you brought your friend with you. I only had 50 dollars, which I loaned and I had to manage with that until my next salary. Well, we played some pool and had couple of drinks, until my friend drove you away, whit he's stupid sexist questions. This was the last time I saw you for long time.
But destiny had other plans and couple months later we met at Bali. What are the chances, that we both decided to travel to Bali and go to same restaurant and sit in the same section of the place at the same time. This place was not even in the central. I don't know, but there we were. How many roads we had to travel, me from Finland you from Philippines, just to meet here.
Although, our meeting didn't last for long, because you were with your friend and I was with my company, I was secretly hoping we would have same flight back to Singapore.
I remember waking up from my own bed at Monday morning, because my phone was ringing. Before I could answer, you hanged up. When I asked you what's up. You said you haven't called me. Smile came to my face and I knew, if I ask you out, you wouldn't say no. So I did that with text message and you replied within one minute. And I think since then we have been together.
First real date was cool. After the Arabic street dinner we went to have a night cap. You ordered vodka on the rocks and I thought, this is one tough lady. Soon, I noticed this was a mistake from you and it was funny to look at you, when you tried to look cool drinking this straight vodka and acting like it really was your favourite drink. I don't think you actually even finished your that drink.
It seemed that this drink of your choice gave you a super human strength, because when we went to my place and had your real favourite drink bailey's and cheered with it, you actually broke my glass with yours.
This was our beginning and it was a start of something big. Since that, we have had so many good and also some bad experiences.
I love you because, you are so down to earth type of person and you take me as I am. You don't try to chance me, or if you do, I'm not noticing it. Of course I sometimes have to adjust myself for you, but you are doing the same for me. You listen my problems and give advises. You don't judge me. You are generally open and happy person and you respect the small things in life. You complete me. I also love you because you are so beautiful and very good cook. I feel the luckiest man on earth.
I'm like an alcoholic for you, I'm love-o-holic for you.
You are like a good wine. Not any discount or 7eleven wine, but this really expensive one, which only gets better when it gets older. The one which you taste for the first time and smile comes to your face and after that, if it's possible you don't want to drink any other wine anymore. It's so precious for you, that you just love to watch it and enjoy it by yourself.
You are like the ring, in lord of the rings and I would travel million miles for just to hold you in my hands.
When you have periods, you are like thunder storm. It is so beautiful to watch, but still I'm little bit scared of it.
You are like volcano. So exciting and so beautiful, especially, when you get on top of it.
You are like sun, the light of my life. So hot at the day time and so romantic, both when setting and rising. Actually, you are like sun in Lapland at summer time. Makes everybody happy and it never sets. So you are hot all the time.
I love you now and I will always do.
I'm the luckiest man on earth.
