unsent letter

I am proud of who you are.

From the very first moment I met you I admired your air of confidence, the manner in which you conversed, the style of your clothes and the way you could just breeze through. I knew full well that these characteristics were only very small parts of who you truly were.

The lust that I had left me wanting to know more. Over time, this lust turned into a deep respect and great love that I had never experienced. I believed that no-one could love you like I did. Even after all these years this still feels true.

I want you to know that I never gave up on you. I had an everlasting faith and never let go. I never wanted to let you go. I still haven’t let you go. I have always held you close and always wished you the very best.

Years ago, when I talked about you there were skeptics who offered their unsolicited advice. I never really liked what they had to say. Their comments were logical and superficial. They were not the ones containing the emotion that I felt. I stopped mentioning your name….. for years.

You are a kind and passionate man underneath all those layers. I am truly honoured to have been the one who you let in underneath the surface. Like most of us, the facade is there to protect us from being vulnerable. I for one, know how true this is. It takes great courage to let someone become soul deep.

You are soul deep within me and have remained a part of my life. Every. Single. Day. There are no words to explain the depths.

I have always loved you.
