A - 

Yesterday I understood, without fully understanding, it was time to say goodbye to us. And I didn't want to leave this place with bitterness in my heart or anger in my mind. I didn't want to resent the time I spent loving you, and truly even in my darkest moment I never have. But my soul, love, my soul has been so restless waiting for you. And yesterday I understood, without truly understanding, it was time to leave you and I.

I'm not sad anymore because I know our time, no matter how fleeting, was real. And if in some near or distant future our paths cross and our new lives intersect I will smile at the warmth you once brought to my heart. I will joyously recall the time we spent growing our hopes and dreams and introducing each other to different types of love.

You gave me a beautifully special type of hope. You awakened my soul to new possibilities and to a wondrous way of loving. You brought me a peace and a desire that simultaneously ignited and soothed my soul. It has been such a precious gift, and I will keep it with me always. I had truly hoped to be able to give that to you forever.

"the best love is the kind that awakens the soul. that makes us reach for more.
that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's 
what you've given me. that's what I'd hoped to give to you forever."
- Nicholas Sparks

I love you, I'll be seeing you.
