Love is Not Blind, Sometimes We’re Just Taking it for Granted
fell in love with the guy I was dreaming every night. I love him so much, to the point that I won’t let him go to some places without me in his side. Two years of courtship and now, five years into marriage. I would have to admit, that I am getting tired of my married life. I am seeking for something that he didn’t give me. I felt he’s lucking of something.
I am a hopeless romantic woman. I always dreamed that my hubby will focus on me and gave attentions every time. My husband is an opposite to what I’ve dream of. He is not vocal to me. If he had problems, my hubby won’t tell me. So, I felt bored and seeking for something new.
Until the day came, I finally decided to tell him of whats inside in my mind, that I wanted a separate lives. I want to be free and seek for something new. The only word he uttered is WHY?. “I am tired, and bored there are no reasons for everything in the world!” I answered. He kept silent the whole night, seems to be in deep thought with a lighted cigarette at all times. just looking at the moon and trying to have an answer the why’s and how’s. I approach him and he said: “What can I do to change your mind?” It’s hard to change a person’s personality, and I think, I have started losing hope in him. I am seriously looking into his eyes and I slowly answered: “If you can answer and convince my heart, I will change my mind, shall we say, I want a flower,a beautiful and a colorful flower. If I can have that flower my life is complete, but the flower is located at the top of the mountain , and picking the flower will possibly be your death, will you get that flower for me?” He only said: “I will answer that tomorrow…” Again I am disappointed on him, he can’t answer me directly in a simple question.
In the next morning when I woke up he’s gone in our bed, and saw a letter from him on the dining table near the front door, that goes….
“My wife, I would not pick that flower for you, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t love you.” ” You always leave the house keys behind, thus I have to prepare my legs to rush home to open the door for you. You love traveling but always lose your way in a new city, I have to save my eyes to show you the way. You always have the cramps whenever your ‘good friend’ approaches every month, I have to save my palms so that I can calm the cramps in your tummy. I have to save my mouth to tell you jokes and stories to cure your boredom. You always in the computer, and that will do nothing good for your eyes, so I have to make my eyes bright and healthy so that when we grow old, I help to remove those unwanted white hairs, I can also hold your hand while strolling down the beach, as you enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful white sand, and tell you the color of flowers that we saw along the road. Thus, my wife, unless I am pretty sure that there is someone who loves you more than I do. So, tell me if there is so i can let you go, and be that man who loves you as much as I can do. My answer in your question is “If you’re still mine, please open the front door for I am standing outside bringing your favorite bread and fresh milk for your breakfast.
My tears starting to fell down on the letter, and don’t know what to say…My heart is aching, his letter made me wake up for the dream that I ever wanted. So, I rush to pull open the door, hug my husband and said, I am sorry my hubby,I am wrong. Now I know that your so important to me, and no one can ever love me as much as you did.
Now I am very sure that no one will ever love me as much as he does, and I have decided to leave the flower alone…
That’s life, and love. When one is surrounded by love, the feeling of excitement fades away, and one tends to ignore the true love that lies in between the peace and dullness.
Love shows in any action, even very small details, it could be the most dull and boring form… flowers, and romantic moments are only used and appear on the surface of the relationship. Above all this, the pillar of true love stands… and that’s our life… Action speaks louder than words. Just try to give the value of everything.
