It doesn’t matter who is the cause of the smile on your face
All I’ve ever wanted is to see you smile
I’ve seen the picture, you’re dressed in white, with a flower in your hand
And I can see that pure smile which is only a result of true happiness
The first time I saw a picture of you and him together, I got jealous
Seeing you happy with someone who isn’t me is not a dream I’ve ever had
So I guess you can guess how I felt when I saw the flyer of your invitation flying around
And then you even sent one of those flyers right to my address
I am sorry I couldn’t be a witness of your beautiful ceremony
I think the tears of joy would have clouded my vision, preventing me from properly witnessing
So I stayed home, and waited for the pictures online
Hoping you will upload yours just like most people do
But yesterday, after waiting for two very long days, I saw one
I was filled with some inner joy, I was really happy seeing you happy
When we were kids, something I probably still am
I fell in love with you
You see, contrary to popular belief, I don’t like being alone
I like being alone with someone special
You became that someone special when you kept spending time with me
Chatting with me even at times I would not want to chat myself
When our time together ended and distance became a given
You hanged on to this relationship of friendship and kept on chatting me on phone
This is a feet not many have been able to accomplish
But being a kid, I knew I had to grow up first before I ever thought of relationships
I guess I am still growing up
I know you are a woman now
So I’m happy you found yourself a man
I am happy he is able to make you happy
I am most of all happy that you are happy
And one more thing
I pray that yours become the love story that is too good to be believed
