I wake up to your voice yelling.
I ask you to be quiet. Please, I beg.
You ignore me, making it harder to rest.
Fine, I concede and give you the attention you want.
With all the attention you get, there’s no wonder my thumbs will hurt soon.
Your shouts turn to murmurs as I start listening to your words of wisdom.
I’ve learned so much from you over the past years.
… there was that one hiccup where you went for a swim when you shouldn’t have.
I was so angry with you. You were ruined.
We still made it work, thanks to the Cloud.
Thank you for always keeping me so connected over the years to my loved ones near and far.
Distance has been tough but thanks for always keeping me in the loop.
I could not have imagined doing it all without you.
You’re still so young. I know you are, but I don’t think that matters.
I’m so excited to see how much you grow over the next couple of years.
But not in size.
I love you, my darling iPhone.
