The Future, by Nannette Campbell

It’s such an inconsistency, falling in love. The feelings and hopes mixed with the doubts and fears. The future I dream of seems like a fantasy… a fantasy that has roots in our reality. Meeting you has had the power to change everything.I have spent my entire life dreading the passing of time, time wasted and of it all ending. Now, all I wish is that time would speed forward and rush past me like the wind of a storm. This is because when enough time has passed, I can finally be with you. The day will come when I can wake up in your arms. When that time comes, I will be waking up from dreams that have come true.

I know it is too soon to tell you all of these feelings and thoughts I am having, but these feelings are here and I think it is important to write them down and express them in some way. One day, when we are in love, I will let you read this, and you will know how you have made me feel so early in our relationship.

I hope that, when we read this, we will laugh at how silly it was for me to doubt the fact we would be in love one day. My heart and even my head say this will be so. Still, feelings like this, feelings that are so strong, can’t help to seem anything but irrational and illogical.

Who really feels this way so soon? Then again, maybe this is how it is supposed to feel when you meet the right person.

All I know is that this is just the beginning of our story, and I can’t wait to see how it ends. I hope that it will end in ‘happily ever after’. Until then, I must wait here, so far away from you, and wait for the next chapter in our love story.

Hoping One Day To Be In Love With You,

    Oh that is so endearingly sweet (and not in a bad way). I find myself hoping for that happy ever after on their behalf.

  2. Angel says:

    Very sweet letter. And it does happen this way sometimes. I fell in love with my husband the moment I met him, and have never looked back. That was almost 19 years ago!

  3. Cathy Doheny says:

    Great letter! I also fell in love with my husband the night I met him and actually told my mom that I was going to marry him. We saw each other every day until we were married six months later. Keep believing! It does happen.

    This is a letter written straight from the heart. It has the enduring quality of hope. And I hope you get your “happily ever after”.
