Goodbye. I’m Now Letting You Go
I had a dream of you.
I was puzzled because I knew we were not together anymore.
But then, I saw you so happy seeing me and I thought, “This is real.”
You hugged me so tight, took me strolling and we were happy being together.
Finally, we were friends again. Then, I woke up.
I couldn’t forget that smile on your face in my dream. It was one of those things that I miss in you the most.
I remember we were so happy together back then. Why did we fall apart?
But looking back, we needed to do it. I think if we stayed, everything was going to break. Everything would change.
I will never forget the last time we talked when we decided to end what was between us. I still have the log on my phone, a constant reminder of what has been you. I will never forget that look on your face that made me decide to let go.
It hasn’t been easy for me. My heart was broken. I was holding on to your word that we would remain friends. But you left me for good, literally.
But like they always say, you can never be friends with your ex. Maybe a few can, but it will be impossible to stay friends after breaking each other’s hearts.
I don’t know if I can eradicate you from my memory. It has been so hard not having you in my life. I know it’s not going to be the same again.
It’s funny that I was anticipating it to happen. But when it did, it was a blow. I was taken aback.
It’s true when they say, "Be careful what you wish for."
Please allow me to say I’m sorry for my failings. I was so complacent with your love that I forgot to take care of you.
I’m glad you came into my dream. It made me realize that I haven’t moved on. It’s time to do something about it.
We weren’t meant to be. Our love was only a partial story that wasn’t meant to be finished.
It was never going to have a happy ending. The happy was in between.
I guess you are my TOTGA (The One That Got Away). It will always stay that way.
And with this, I’m now closing our chapter for good.
Thank you for the wonderful memories.
Thank you for making me feel that I was the luckiest girl in the world.
Thank you for loving me once upon a time.
Goodbye. I’m now letting you go.
