"I’ll forget to feed the fish, and I’ll probably forget to reply to your text. I might burn dinner sometimes, if I remember to make it at all. I have a bad habit of leaving my clothes wherever I take them off, and if I get around to doing laundry it’s a miracle. I’ll fall asleep mid sentence and you’ll have to remind me the next morning. I’ll forget what you said right after you say it, and I’ll never stop complaining about dresses. But I’ll never forget that you like only cream in your coffee and only sugar in your tea. I’ll remember your favorite spot on the couch, and your favorite pillow in bed. I’ll send your favorite shirt to the dry cleaner so I don’t screw it up, even if the directions are on the tag. If I know one thing, that one thing will be you."
