You and I have spent a lot of quality time trying to get to know each other. I’ve spent numerous hours thinking about you. In my dreams, I’ve imagined what you look like and what you have to offer me. I’ve always pictured you and I riding off into the sunset and living happily ever after.
Ah, but thoughts of you have also caused me great distress – tossing and turning during the night because my current situation threatened the plans you and I have. Plans for a bright and beautiful future filled with sunshine and flowers, and dancing in the rain. I struggle at times to make arrangements for our life together because I’m not quite sure what you require of me.
As you know, Tomorrow, my love for you is undeniable. In fact, I have been so diligent in caring for you and attending to you that I have neglected your cousin, Today. Today is here with me now and, come to think of it, I have no real certainty that you and I will ever meet. Today is a close relative of yours so be rest assured my love and devotion is staying within the family.
I am not abandoning you; I’m leaving you in good hands. I’ve asked God to take good care of you from now onward. He will do a much better job than I. He will make sure all your needs are taken care of. Whatever provisions are needed for you, He will either address them Himself or give instructions to me and Today on how to best accommodate you.
Lastly, I want to make sure you know that I am looking forward to meeting you someday. You will always hold a special place in my heart. I will put great effort into making sure that the decisions Today and I make impact you in a positive way. Furthermore, Today and I will do the best we can to prepare for your anticipated arrival.
However, if you are unable to make it, there are no hard feelings. Today and I will make the most of our time together.
