Forget any doubts, try to forgive my past mistakes. Look into my eyes and see me, like you used to. Take those walls down, allow yourself to feel what I know is still there. Don't let your once broken heart shatter all the good memories we had before the bad ones came along.
It's not even fair to ask you that, since I was the one who promised to protect your heart, no matter what, only to go and break it. But you know you did the same to me. It is not about placing blame, it is simply about stating facts. We have both owned up to our mistakes. We have both paid the price for them. And what a high price that was.
The way you have forgiven me. Trust me to be there if you ever need me, to not let you down again. Believe that I will be strong enough to know the right moment to leave you again – because little moments of help and encouraging words are all we have now, and we both know it's the only way to keep us from getting hurt again –, to see you're ok after a two hour talk and let you go, knowing it only opens the wound and it hurts more each time, knowing it may takes months, years even, until I hear from you again. Have faith in me. For I have grown to know that love should be enough, but it rarely ever is.
Focus on the happy moments, when we gave each other the kind of strength we knew no one else could provide. The way we seemed to read each other's minds, the way we just knew one of us needed to hear the other one's voice. As we go on with our lives, almost completely detached from one another, just spare a thought for me every once in a while. Remember we will always have each other, in a special, different way. Simply impossible to explain.
So love her. Because it is so obvious how much she loves you. She deserves to be loved the same way.
Protect her. You have put her through a lot, we have both put her through a lot, and she never did anything to deserve it, except maybe, at times, not being able to understand you the way I could. She deserves to finally feel safe.
Trust her. Because you know she has trusted you, even when she shouldn't have. Trust your heart and your happiness on her hands – they will be safe.
Live your life. Be happy. Take chances. But every once in a while, as you smile and your mind fills with good memories, save a tiny space for us, to remind yourself I was once a part of them.
And remember me. No hurt. No mistakes. No disappointment. Just me.
And what we once had.
