Goodbye Letter to a Friend You Love
Sometimes the problem is not the fact that you love someone, it is the fact that you love someone more than your own life but you cannot be by their side every waking moment and show how much you love them. You die a little inside when no amount of words can make it better when you tell them you have great admiration for them but all you can ever be is friends. You might know in your mind that you can never be more than that but your heart refuses to listen. So you live with the hurt until your heart learns to let go.
You are that friend. The one I cannot separate myself from. The one my heart refuses to stop loving. When the sky is blue and I hear the sound of laughter my mind rushes back to you and my heart steals the color of the skies. When I see you smile I feel my heart breaks into million pieces because you will never smile at me like that and say you love me. It’s hard to pretend I do not feel my heart pumps faster every time you walk towards me… It’s even harder to be around you and pretend I don’t want you in my arms but it’s a price I have to pay to have you as a friend.
I know we can never be but in my dreams I’m with you every night. In my dreams I will always have you beside me. My love, my admiration and love for you is deep, eternal, even though my emotions do not show. I have painfully perfected the act of pretending I do not feel anything for you. Maybe because your friendship is more important to me than anything in the world or maybe it’s because I know that if I tell you how I truly feel, you will say you do not feel the same way and my heart will simply just stop…
So I have to say goodbye because I know that at some point, I will not be able to pretend anymore. I might not be able to hide my feelings anymore. My love for you is so intense that I know one day, my heart will simply explode.
And I don’t want to ruin everything. I know you love someone else and seeing you happy is enough for me. I love you my best friend but I have to say goodbye. I know someday you will understand why I need to go away. This is for your own good.
There were times when I dream of telling you the truth. And you will be not be shocked. And you will look into my eyes and tell me you love me too. That you love me ever since we met like when I fell in love with you the first time I laid my eyes on you. That you can’t let me go. That it’s me who you want to spend the rest of your life with. That you can turn your back on him for me.
But I know I have to wake myself up from my own dream simply because that dream remains as is forever. Simply because there’s no way you can love me back. Simply because you’re getting married now and I couldn’t possibly know how I will be able to tell you because I don’t want to lose what is left of us.
I love you my friend and as friends we will be forever…
