Our One Star
By: Alon Calinao Dy
Above the clouds
We have dreams,
Wonder how far
Our love will be together.
Our one star,
The most beautiful star,
The brightest star of all stars,
The star in the universe,
The star that will live forever,
And the one I would say mine.
Our one star,
The star that will stand firm
In the test of time,
The star that will never fade,
The star that will always shine,
And the one that I’ll call love
Our one star.
We have known each other for so long before we have decided to get married last August 2011. During that time, Gre Pearl always asked me this question, “Do you really love me?” I had no idea what to tell her back then. But I knew in my heart, I was so deeply in love with her. And every time I looked at her, I couldn’t take my eyes off her.
Reminiscing the past, I said to myself, Damn! She's so adorable and beautiful when she smiles. At that moment, I was speechless every time I was with her. She truly stunned me.
We have gone through a lot together that no one will ever believe how strong our relationship foundation is. Even though, we’ve had our ups and downs, we always talk to each other and solve all our problems immediately. We would never sleep at night unless we are settled. Both of us would listen to each other’s side attentively. Until now, that is what we do. We respect, love and trust one another.
It makes perfect sense for us to keep our love alive. Here are some reasons why I love my wife.
1. She Can Make Me Laugh
I know my wife is a sensitive person, but she can always make me smile at my worst times. She knows exactly what to do to make me happy. I can’t deny she lights up my day when I am sad, without even realizing it.
2. She Cooks Very Well
She can cook food anything I want. It makes her happy to see me my stomach so big and full. I don’t know if she wants me to be fat. But one thing I am sure of, it is just the way she expresses her deep affection for me.
3. I Can Trust Her
Although sometimes, we argue trust issues in our relationship. The truth is, we have faith in our love, as we put God at the center in our lives. For many years we have been together, trust has been with ourselves all our life.
4. She Has Deep Understanding
My wife is one of a few people I know in my whole life who can understand me so well. Our relationship is not only about love, but seeing our life in a positive way all the time. I know there is no such perfect love, but at least, we always try our best to recognize each other’s strengths and weaknesses to avoid conflicts.
5. She Is A Simple Woman
Although my wife is obsessed with fashionable dresses, bags, and shoes, she knows how to budget her money. She will only buy personal things if she has extra money. She will wear anything that feels comfortable with her body. I have never seen her complaining about the things she used.
Of course, there are so many reasons to love my wife. I can’t say all those amazing things she always does for me every single day. Honestly, I really want to tell her how much I love and miss her. I know it sounds crazy because I’m with her each day, but my love for her is burning inside. My wife, Gre Pearl Gay, has given me a long-lasting love that I would always cherish for the rest of my life.
