Dear Boy in the Future,
You didn’t hear this from me. But I have a thing for you.
Sometimes I let myself daydream. About the blanket forts we’ll make. How I’ll call you, and you’ll answer with “hey, sweetheart.” Date nights where we don’t even make it to the restaurant. Just pull over. Miss our reservation.
I think about baking you brownies. I think about running my fingers through your hair when you’re sick and when you’re not. I think about helping you around the apartment. A night of washing dishes that turns into a water fight. All the conversations where we won’t say anything at all. Holding your hand in church. . . everywhere.
My heart hurts when I think about the arguments we’ll face. I’m a pretty selfish person, but I’m trying to change because I know you deserve the best.
It doesn’t seem right to say that I love you. I doubt I even know you, but I miss you.
Every night in that first moment when I close my eyes, nestle deeper into the pillow, and sigh, I imagine your arm hooking around my waist to pull me close. As bittersweet as that second is, I know the next morning I’m a day closer to you.
– Your Girl
I’m not one for mushy and gushy. All that Hallmark stuff can stay on the channel. But I thought just once couldn’t hurt anything. And I’ll admit, it does seem to have benefits similar to journal-keeping. Or at least in the long-term according to Thought Catalogue.
Tell me. Do you write to your future husband?
