The loveliest thing

Oh my God, don't ever die. 
'Give me my Romeo and when he shall die take him and cut him out in little stars and make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night.' Did I ever tell you I played Juliet in the fifth grade? I did. Opposite Stephen Polumbo's Romeo. Oi, what an actor he was. He started crying during my monologue - when he was supposed to be dead - because he'd said I was 'leaning on his arm.' Oh my God, don't ever die. I have so much more to tell you and I'm not interested in telling it to anyone else. And I'm not saying I'd be helpless I mean I'm bright and fairly good with money. And I guess I'm cute, right? You would say 'What are you, kidding me? You, my little friend, are a perfect example of beautiful.' And so I am. Because I am nothing more or less than what I see in your eyes when you look at me. Do you know how long I waited for you? My mother used to say I was too picky or afraid of commitment and that's why but the truth is, I was... just looking for you. Do you know how close I came be being a narrow, cold, mistrustful woman? But you have given me a life so big... and full... and good... and fun. I don't even know what we do really besides clean up and complain and wish we were sleeping but with you somehow: fun! And I'll tell you a secret: When we got together I couldn't image still wanting to be with anyone all this time later. But I do. It's a miracle to me. You, are a miracle. You've made me happy, which is something I never ever though I'd be.
