  • I met this boy... he wasn't the type of guy I thought I would end up with when I was little. Although he wasn't a prince riding in with his shining armor, he was a wonderful guy. I was young, only 15. He was 16. I met him through a friend. But the funny thing was, he lived across the street from me for a while and I never knew he existed.

    He was barefoot, wearing jeans and a t-shirt. His hair was half in braids and the rest a mess on the side of his head. It was a forced meeting. Neither one of us was ready for it but it happened. I didn't look my best either. I was wearing a hoodie and sweats. But for some reason I was drawn to him.

    I asked him to go out with me and that's where our journey began. Its was May 24, 2008.

    We've been together for almost 4 years now. We've had our ups and downs and we've been through a lot. He was my first love and he's going to be my last. He is my best friend and my boyfriend. I am so grateful to have him in my life and I wouldn't ever change that.
    We are meant to be... forever and always.

    I love you Marcus.
