Around the time when it first broadcasted, my boyfriend told me that he was listening to this song and said that it reminded him of me. At first, I thought this was just another typical love song. But it’s not. The lyrics, yes, they give meaning to this top hit. But personally, the way this song makes me FEEL, every time I hear it… even for as overplayed as it used to be on the radio, this was one of those songs I could never get tired of listening to.
I may be overthinking things again, but I’ve never experienced a love like I have with him that could partially relate to a song like this, a song that Justin Timberlake has dedicated to his grandparents who have been together for as long as he has lived, and, of course to his supposed love of his life, Jessica Biel.
The chance to be with someone for as long as anyone can imagine is something that I aspire to have. I’m hoping that what I have right now is something that will grow into and be noted as somewhat of a love story that is relatable. The way that I feel about my best friend makes me want to make this long journey ahead of us become one of the best experiences of my life.
We are still young, but I am determined to grow in this relationship, for myself, for him, for us, for as long as he’ll have me. We have the rest of our lives to do all that we want together, and we’re both taking it, one day at a time.
From day one as friends, he has rubbed off on me, the things I now do, his mannerisms, et cetera et cetera, I feel like a part of him is in me. And for as long as we have gotten closer to each other, this is how I will always feel about him.
This is my message for our 11 months together… and for the many more to come.
Love you forever, babe.
