My Significant Other

My significant other,

One day God willing, I will direct you to this happy place and allow you to read this letter. I have been praying for you even though a part of me is doubtful that I will ever meet you. Even though it hurts I am hopeful that one day I will smile, cry and say I do in front of our families. I would love to meet you and I hope that we will grow old together.

Funny enough I spent my Valentines Day evening covering homework books for my students while
someone was blushing. I teach a happy, energetic and adventurous bunch of five-year-olds. I am not comparing myself with anyone and neither am I complaining but the heat is getting unbearable and even though I might act tough it gets to me on some nights. I believe that we will talk about this say “the timing wasn’t right”.

I hope you had a memorable Valentines day, I even laughed at myself when I left work. I wasn’t in a rush to go home, but someone’s child was in a rush to go somewhere.

A part of me hopes to bump into you soon, I am scared, anxious and on some days I even imagine that you exist. It sounds stupid but I can’t keep up with the flood of questions of when I will get married. So Qhawe Zulu has been the one for me until we meet.

I pray that we will fall in love and be the best versions of ourselves.

Your anxious wife
