Times have changed, people moved on and even I am tired of dwelling so far in the past. I would say that I can't move on without their forgiveness but I know better. I am already moving on but I need to say good bye before I can say hello to the new people in my life.
Good bye, to those quiet moments of shared secrets, those moments lost in intimacy. I want you to know that I never have nor will I forget those whispers in confidence. I will smile as I remember the streets we walked down, the laughter shared and the wine we had. I love you as much if not more than you know.
Good bye to those losses we shared, the tears we cried. There were moments where the only way we would survive was hand in hand. We felt pain deeply for each other and we comforted hard. Our celebrations of life made the losses a shared experience. I won't forget, and I hope you don't either.
Finally, good bye to holding on. Letting go of these memories is the hardest thing I have to do. The past will never be the present. I ran when I should have stayed and stayed when I should have taken the hint and left. The mark you have made on my life is undeniable and has changed who I am forever. I do miss you and your presence in my life but we all have to move on.
Please forgive me for all the slights and pain I have caused. Have an amazing life!
