Dear you, 

I’m sorry. I know you said sorry countless times in our … whatever we were, but I never did. I’m saying sorry now though. It may be a little overdue, but I have to say it.

As much as I wanted to put the blame on you, I know it was my fault. I let you go. Actually, no. I pushed you away. You tried and you tried to be in my life and every single time I found a fault in you, to push you away. I guess I was scared. You see, I had never been given so much attention from a boy. It was strange to see how interested and invested in me you were. I was scared of feeling overwhelmed. I’m sorry I was scared of my feelings for you. As much as I wanted to repress them, as much as I’m still trying to repress them, they’re still there.

I miss you so much. You are one of the greatest men I have ever met. You were so attentive, every little detail I would tell you, you always remembered. Every worry I had, you somehow made it go away. You managed to make me laugh even when I didn’t want to. When I wanted to talk, you let me talk. When I wanted to do my own things, you let me. You showed interest in my interest. You knew I loved to read, so even though you knew nothing about books you still asked. You watched the series I watched. You took an interest in my life. 

You tried so hard to make things work and I didn’t try at all. I know that if I did, we would’ve made it. We would probably be together and so happy. I guess I’ve always been self-destructive. I told you that once and you told me I didn’t need to be. I still was though and I destroyed a great relationship. 

You’re married and having a child and I’m still here thinking about you, but I wish you all the best. As much as I wish your best was me, I know I’m not. However, I’m not writing to be your best, I know I messed up. I’m writing because you deserve a sorry I never said. You deserve to hear my words and how great you are. I wish you nothing but happiness because you deserve it all. You really do. 

I’m sorry I never gave you the chance you deserved. I’m sorry it took so long to say I’m sorry and how I really was feeling. I always said I wanted honesty, but I guess I was the one being dishonest.

Anyways, I’m happy for you. I wish you a lifetime of happiness and lots of love.
