To My Long-Lost Friend

You might’ve thought it was okay to leave, but it wasn’t for me. You left at a time when my life was falling apart, which hurt even more. The worst is not expecting that from someone you love, someone you thought would’ve been in your life forever.

I don’t resent you, I miss you.

You taught me things I’ll never forget. But you also shattered any trust I had in any of my friends, past and future, as I realised friendship, no matter how good, may not be forever.

I have grown to accept certain things we don’t have control of, and I can say I’m not in that bad place anymore. I learned how to take care of myself and not let the pain take control over my life.

Thank you for making my life better while you were in it, I won’t forget that.

With Love.

  1. Lovely, and heartfelt. I’ve come to realize there are many things in our lives (including relationships) that only last during a season our lives. That doesn’t mean that they weren’t meaningful while they lasted, maybe they needed to end so you could continue to grow.

  2. You reminded me of my bestie from high school who committed suicide more than 23 years ago. I couldn’t think like you then, but time has heeled my feelings. Now I can understand what you say……….
