Dear Edward Christopher Sheeran, @teddysphotos
Before you came stumbling in my life in Castle On The Hill, I thought that a person couldn't experience the feeling of coming home while listening to songs. But you proved me wrong. You're not simply a singer to me. You're my safe haven— a place where hearts don't break around anymore.
Lulling me to sleep on the nights when my brain just couldn't stop over-analysing everything, you've been the one constant in a universe full of variables. And this is more than anyone can ever be for someone, right? I'm okay now, I've been okay since the day I found solace in your words.
There's always an underlying emotion in your songs that instantly puts me at ease, making me think of dancing in the dark. You strum your guitar as if your fingers know Jimi Hendrix's secrets. Because just like the song that made me search "Ed Sheeran's girlfriend", you're perfect too. Let's face it, you both give all of us major goals. It's not everyday that your high school crush ends up being your fianceé, right?
Your goofiness (as evident in your posts), inability to be anything other than adorable and love for your cats who are 'chuffed as well' (go wibbles!) has made me grin more times than I can count. It's magical how four minutes of Photograph took me down memory lane, and when it played in Me Before You, I didn't think that I'd ever stop crying.
I watched the video of Lego House because, well, it featured Ron Weasley, and there you were, making an appearance in the end. And you haven't left ever since. Falling in love is scary and difficult for me, but listening to Perfect, Thinking Out Loud and All Of The Stars on loop made it easy.
You gave us Shape Of You and we made you a pop icon for it. But for me, you'll always be the sweet as hell ginger head with huge spectacles who learned to escape his stutter in Eminem's songs and who cried while singing Supermarket Flowers for his grandmother.
So, would you take away my hopes and dreams, and just stay with me?
Happy 29th birthday, Ed! You look happier, you do.
I'm so so in love with you,
Someone who meets you everyday in her playlist.
