Hey. I know we haven’t seen each other or even talked in a long time. But I have been doing a lot of thinking lately, and I want you to know that I have been thinking about YOU. Not like, “I regret what happened..” or “I want to see you again…”. Just..thinking.full stop.
Its weird to think that someone I knew so well, is now a total stranger. Strange to, sometimes go entire days, without thinking of you even a little.Most of the times, I let myself forget because that is easier. But then something happens; an old letter, or a picture we took, a note you wrote, a card you sent slipped away in a book I haven’t touched in a while. That’s when the full weight of what’s been lost comes crashing down upon me.
But this isn’t regret, we had our reasons to move away, and they are as valid as ever. But back at the start, we didn’t need any reasons to get together, it just happened. We didn’t have common interest, or similar goals, we didn’t even get along really well. We didn’t need a reason to fall in love, we just did.
The reasons come at the end. Everything that has happened since has been all about reasons. In a way, that’s good; it means that one day I might find someone I won’t have to say goodbye to. Yet, a part of me misses loving someone, and knowing they love you back, no string attached.
I guess what I am saying is, I hope things are good with you. I hope everything is great. I hope you found the love, that’s all the things ours couldn’t be. And I hope I find that too. But a small part of me hopes, that you still remember what it was like before all the reasons…and that you think of me too.
