Unbelievable as it might sound, you revived a part of me I thought was dead and buried. The few months we spent together were full of joy and happiness. For some time, I had believed that such happiness would elude me all my life.
But I remember the days I spent with a permanent smile on my face, all thanks to you. The nights we spent up till the late hours are not forgotten. We opened up to each other, and those moments meant the world to me.
Losing a few nights of sleep just to stay up chatting with you was all worth it. I want you to know that.
I remember how you looked into my eyes. It felt like you could see deep into my soul. And that look of acceptance made me delighted to spend those beautiful moments in your presence.
If I had the power to freeze time or go back in time, I would choose that particular moment and try to make it last for as long as possible.
I will never forget your eyes. They were magical, and they made my body and soul feel refreshed and alive.
That is why I held no secret from you. You know things I have never told a soul in all the years I carried them in my heart.
You made me know peace, unburden myself and feel free.
I don't know the first thing about meeting a perfect partner, but you came pretty close.
Then the unexpected happened: you changed your mind. I'm at a loss to explain what truly happened. I'm not sure if it was bad timing or because I was not good enough for you.
Whatever the case, I am grateful I met you. You rekindled my faith in people. You made me learn to trust again.
I strongly believe we met for a reason and that you changed my life for the better. You taught me to bring down my walls once more, and for that, I could never repay you.
I became a better person on your account. I understood that I am worth loving and having. What more could I ask for?
Loving you was easy, my heart opened up to you without a resistance.
After you left, it took time for me to let go of you, but now it has finally happened.
To be honest, it has taken a little effort to put it all behind me. I know you moved on long ago, even before what we had reached its inevitable end.
Yes, I have met someone else. He is certainly not you, but I am his world and he makes me happy. He wants all of me, and that is something I could never have with you.
There were things you could not stand about me. But that is not a problem any longer.
Anyway, I did not write to ramble about my new catch. I just thought you should know I am happy and that you were an important part of that journey.
My hope and desire are that you find happiness too. Also, understand that you will always have a special place in my heart.
