My Love Celebrates Its Sweet 16 (2009)

Over the past year, I was able to see my love for you from another perspective. I went through the toughest time of my life and yet, you proved me once again that I could rely on you and your music even when my faith was gone.

You have been my security blanket, the one that gave me strength and safety feeling like never before. Your soft and beautiful voice made me forget about the physical pain I was suffering from. I gained my faith back and I could even fall asleep while listening to your music. Not because I was bored, but because I was confident that you would make me forget about my swelling, my hunger and the whole ordeal I was living.

I knew that with you, I had nothing to worry about. I knew that with your music, all the pain in the world could not cause a shadow over my admiration and passion for you. The old hard rock songs of yours were so comforting; the ballads were truly painkillers flowing through my veins.

I couldn't even open my mouth to sing along with you but my heart sang instead and it lifted my spirits as much as if I were shouting at the top of my lungs. My heart actually wanted to listen to your music day and night, literally.

This past year was tough, but reassuring nonetheless with regards to my ongoing strange love for you. It's been 16 years already since I first heard and saw you on television; it took me only a brief moment to fall in love with you. I will not say it enough, you are my inspiration, you are my savior; you are simply an everlasting good part of my life.

Thank you again for everything good that happens in my life.
