About 8 months ago my five year old daughter were sitting on the top of the slide in the park. A true love story began.
We had just moved in to a new complex. A boy from the class above her also lived there and they had been playing together a little after school lately.
This day in the park was special. There she was on the slide with sparkling eyes together with this charming boy. He held his arm around her and said “Amelia, you are my girlfriend and I’m your boyfriend”. She giggled and answered “yes”.
Since that moment the two of them have been like glued together! As long as they have each other, they don’t need anybody else. After school they never ask if they are gonna play with each other. The question is “are we going to your house or mine”.
They are always looking out for each other, helping each other and sticks together in every situation. How beautiful is that? There is one year between them and they fulfill each other like a couple that has been married for 50 years!
Today has been a weird day. Tomorrow her beloved boyfriend is moving to another country. They have agreed to skype each other, visit and she doesn’t want a new boyfriend. They have spent the whole day together and tomorrow he will walk her to school, just so they can have the last moments together.
In a way I feel so sorry for them. They both lose their best friend, the one they have had every single day. I can’t imagine how that must feel, because I truly believe my daughter found her very first love. At the same time I’m so happy for them! For all they have given each other. The safety, the comfort, the joy and fun, how much they have taught each other, how they have enjoyed every moment together, the experiences they have shared, the frustration they have overcomed together.
I envy them. Not once have they had an argument, not once have they turned their back on each other, not once have they fought and not once have they hurt each other. They just completely enjoy each other’s company. And I don’t think many people in this world can do that.
My friendship with his parents grew with our young love birds and I have to say that they have been a big part of our lives. They are amazing people that I’m very sad to see leave.
Thank you! For every single moment. I wish you all the best for the future and good luck with your next chapter. We are all gonna miss you so much and I’m probably gonna cry like a baby when we say goodbye tomorrow. So goodbye, for now!
