Letter to you

Hey you,

You beautiful, wonderful, amazing you. Do you remember me? Do you remember the good times we had? When we went to Yellowknife? Driving in the snow with a very old van turned out to be quite a challenge. I was so happy to share the city that I love with a friend. The fun we had at the airports! Or when we went to Toronto? We tried visiting the city but we really visited stores instead? Ah the view we had on the harbour! But my eyes were all on you. My heart was full of awe. Because I couldn’t believe that you were mine. Do you also remember when we just hung out and played video games? Your presence alone was enough to make me happy.

When we kissed it was magical. You know you were the first person with whom I had that reaction? Who swept me off my feet both mentally and physically? But all of that is no longer relevant. The world has decided that we should not be together. I understand your reasons. I also think that it was the best. We can’t be together right now. Maybe we never will. You need someone who understands what you are going through and so do I. And we simply cannot be that person for each other.

I wish I could tell you how much I miss you. How much I miss the smell of the coconut oil you put in your lustrous hair. How your smile will be forever imprinted on my mind. How when I close my eyes I still see the contrast of your beautiful honey skin against my hand.

More than that though, I wish I could tell you how unbelievably amazing you are. I know you keep forgetting it. Life keeps throwing at you everything it has, and you tend to believe that it means you aren’t worthy. But you are. You are worthy of someone as incredible and driven as you. You are worthy of a life full of laughs and greatness. You are a good person, too good even maybe.

Don’t let the world try and destroy you. You are better than the world. And even if I’m not there anymore to hold you in my arms, a part of me always will be. Be strong. Be unique. Be yourself.

I wish I didn’t have to let you go. I wish I could wait for you for as long as it takes. But doing so would destroy me. It would probably destroy you too. So I am moving on. Because I love you with all my heart and life sometimes isn’t fair. I’m still happy it put us together though, however short that was. Being with you was an important moment in my life.

I hope you find what you need, and that things get better for you. I’ll always be there to hold you tight en pensée when everything seems dark. Don’t ever loose faith in yourself.
