I had planned on sending you a birthday card for your birthday but I wrestled with the idea cause I am supposed to be going on with my life. So I didn’t send it but I did say “Happy birthday” out loud and I hoped for you a great day. It was on a Sunday so I hoped that you got to see the loved ones who really mattered to you. I am grateful to have gotten to know you the little that I did . You made quite an impression on me and that’s a real feat! I’m a veteran to this love game and a champion at best because I can reach deep without submerging myself. This time around it was as if the deepest went against the law of gravity and crept up my sleeve 😱 It’s ok though! Knowing it will hurt like it does right now and given the chance to go back to the day that we met and do it all over again I wouldn’t hesitate not one second. The warmth wrapped around my heart for you is worth every drop of salt water I taste in the quiet moments I spend thinking of you. I am excited for your bright future and hope nothing but the best for you! I want you to know that my feelings were and still are genuine. Thank you for helping me realize I still have a little fire inside me!
