My Everlasting Love…

          Maybe, some of you had already read my blog about “Lunch break” which is the story of romance between me and my husband. I just write this follow-up blog because I want the world to know how thankful I am to be blessed with a partner like him. That story was written 4 years ago and though lot of things had happened for the past years, I am proud because until now, if people will ask me how I feel about my marriage life, I still answer them with the same statement as before, “happy and contented!”

         I was only 21 years old when I fell in love with Romel. People said I am too young and may not know the true meaning of love... and so? All I knew is that I’m happy to be with this man and my life will not be complete without him. I knew I became aggressive with the situation and didn’t bother to think what others may say. Well, Romel told me that we should not let others hinder our relationship. For him, as long as we knew that our hearts beat as one, we can conquer whatever trial comes on our way, of course, with God’s guidance and prayers.

          Why do you think couple breaks apart? Is it because their love for one another is no longer enough to maintain their relationship? Is it because their respect for each other is already gone and everything that is left is hatred? Is it because the two had lot of incompatibilities that they just discover after being together for a period of time? Is it because he/she falls out of love with him/her? Is it because he/she gets tired of understanding him/her? Or is it because they are really not meant to be for one another?

          I had met some couples who had been together for more than 5 years, got separated due to some reasons mentioned above; who later found their true love and happiness with another person. Imagine, these couples had been living together in the same roof, had children of their own but still ended up having separate lives. I also knew folks who are into a relationship but still unsure if his or her partner is the right one for them. So how can you be so sure that you have already found your true love? How can you say that he/she is really the one for you?

          Life is a constant change. No one can tell us what lies ahead. I had a boyfriend before and we’ve been together for more than 3 years when Romel came into my life. I thought that my ex-boyfriend was already the one for me. My world revolved only to him and it was only him whom I cared for. Feeling so insecure and afraid that I may lose him, I became too possessive of him and jealous every time. I became so attached to him that I wasn’t able to see other things around me. But I really believe that destiny led us to be apart. If you only knew how hard it is for me to let go. I couldn’t stop crying when I said goodbye to him and told him that we have to be totally separated. 3 years of being together is not a joke. The pain before was unbearable but I was able to survive. It was when Romel and I got together that I realized, maybe, what I felt with my ex-boyfriend was not love after all… or maybe, it was, I don’t know… Or like what the song says, “It must have been love, but it’s over now, it must have been good, but I lost it somehow…”

          You know, if you had been tied with your past, you will not be able to move on with your life. Learn to leave yesterday behind. Learn to let go. Just be thankful that he came across your way. Let the experiences in the past make you a better person. Let them be your strength in facing tomorrow’s challenge. Don’t waste your time in dwelling with your past as no matter how hard you try, you can no longer bring back the hands of time. Set yourself free so you can find your true happiness. Lots of love may come in your way… who knows, maybe he is already there waiting for you but you just don’t let him in. It is not because you had been hurt once that you will close your door for love.

          Me, when I learned to let go of my past, I was able to let Romel enter in my heart. Romel taught me a lot of things. He taught me how to trust and let go of my fears. He is calm, gentle, understanding, very open-minded and mature. He made me feel secure of his love…he made me live again.

          To Romel, whom I am destined to be with forever, I had given him my all…to him, I’ll continue to give my everlasting love.


I am so glad that we’re going through life together.

We made a commitment

to share our hopes and dreams,

our sad times, and our happy times.

We promised to try to always

be there for each other

with understanding and comfort,

encouragement and support.

Having you in my life

is the most wonderful thing

that could have happened to me.

And knowing that the love I feel for you today

will just keep on growing makes me very happy.

I love you bhe.
