See, the funny thing about having minor asthma
Is that you're not quite at risk for dangerous asthma attacks
But there are still those moments that take your breath away
And leave you struggling to regain what you lost
I first met you on a website where people wrote fanfictions
A strange place to meet, I know. But stranger things have happened.
I had noticed you liking what I wrote and checked out your profile
And your birthday was so close to mine I started a conversation
What a strange beginning.
You lived worlds away, but we aligned our schedules
Often enough that we could keep tabs on each other's lives through Skype
Sometimes we didn't talk for a while. Twice I almost lost you.
Those were the most terrifying moments of my life.
Despite the troubles, we managed to keep our connection
Sending silly photos on Snapchat when we were too busy for conversation
We came to each other with problems and found solutions together
You became a reason for me to carry on.
See, I don't think I've ever told you how breathtakingly beautiful you are.
I've never told you of the sheer joy in my veins that comes from your messages.
I'm too afraid. I don't want to take one step
That could ruin all we've made
But if I were to take that step, know this:
Even though I may not be the best person, I will care for you
I will care for you with every fibre of my being
I will continue to be there for you for as long as you let me
Remain by your side
I know I'm bad at relationships
Friendships are tricky for me
But you understood, and we grew to care for each other
So even if I never take that step, I am content
Being your friend, remaining by your side
Because I love you.
More than you could ever know.
