and then what?

It started with , “hi!”

then, “I’ll call you when I get home?”


SIX MONTHS later: “Good morning.” Every single day.

then,  ” . . . I’m thinking of you.”

then, ” . . . I’m thinking of you.”

then, ” I miss you.”


TWELVE MONTHS later: ” You . . . more than enough.”


ONE YEAR later: ” I love you.”

then, ” I think I’ve found my match.”

then, ” I will love you forever.”

then, “Okay. Since you don’t believe in forever, I will love you for a long time.”


THREE MONTHS later: “Please believe in second chances. I’m sorry.”

then, “Love me always.”

then, “I want to spend the rest of my life with you.”

then, “I do.”


So what comes after I do?
