Dear past love,
I do hope that you truly have found the One that makes you feel whole. The One that gives you the respect that you deserve. The One that truly gets who you are without you having to explain. I am happy for you … I am.
I just want you to know that she deserves the best...the best version of you there is. Yes, she, the apple of your eye should never have to sleep knowing that she is not understood. She, the One that your soul has longed for, should never have to beg for your attention or seek your presence like the face of God. That woman, who makes your heart beat just a little faster when she walks into a room, should never have to doubt or question how much you love her.
You may wonder, why would I wish this for the woman who has you - all I had hoped for in a man? I wish this, so that she can know peace. So that her heart can truly be hidden in your love without her having to look over her shoulder. So that she can know that I too know the gem that you are. So that she too can know the freedom found in knowing that her man has only eyes for her.
If you are reading this my dear, enjoy this man – or at least the version of him that I remember. The version that made silence feel like a conversation. The man that gave me goosebumps with each touch. Enjoy him more than I did. Love him better than I ever could have. Honor him in ways that I would never have thought of. Because he is a man that is deserving of this kind of love and devotion.
To you, my former lover, I say congratulations. May you find everything that I never had in this new love. May you reach new heights and gain new ground in all you do. I write this not with tears in my eyes but with a smile on my face – 10000 feet in the air. Yes, I am thinking of you even now. Wishing that you experience everything that your very soul desires.
Why? Because you deserve it.
Three women going through life.
