Everything good about you and me. The memories, the songs, our conversations. All the reasons why I love you.
Questions, Qualms or Concerns
Note to self: 1920’s theme
I once thought that my dreams and hopes with you were grounded in a foundation of mutual benefit. That you may one day become the doctor I wished to marry and live happily ever after with. The guy I can bring out to my friends and they will admire our power coupledom and tell me what a great life I will have if I stayed with you.
I used to envy others whose significant other was a bus ride away - or even next door. Those couples at school who take all their classes together - inseparable for even a second. We shared a brief 6 months in the same city and they were the happiest times of my life.
Now, especially since you haven’t matched into a residency program, you continue to amaze me what YOU are capable of. You fought for me when I let you down, you always try to put the best food forward, and you never compromise your integrity for self-interest.
I must admit that when I first found out you went unmatched I questioned whether there was anything left in you for me to stay for, to fight for. And now I know more than ever - there is.
I know you can do whatever you set your heart to and I am excited to see a better more passionate doctor next year.
I love you.
- My lover
