Not every love story has a happy ending. Not every love story lasts forever. That doesn’t mean the love wasn’t real, or the people were flawed. Sometimes, love only exists to teach you something. The day I confessed to you and you hugged me to say that you loved me too, that day I thought that this was it. This is my endgame. You are my endgame. You made me realize that there is so much love that I’ve yet to experience- the way you used to look at me when I sang those cheap songs, or when we used to dance together all night without thinking that our boss is going to kill us tomorrow for coming in late, or when you used to rest your head on my chest and listen to my heartbeat while we slept our worries away. It’s weird how you relate words to people. Whenever someone mentions that word, one person pops up in your mind. For me, that was love. You gave me a whole new perspective on what love was. It’s not always fun and games, it’s making sure that you both never go to bed angry with each other. It’s not about the grand gestures but the little efforts that you make to keep the other person happy, and you taught me that. In the past two years, you made me discover I had a passion for writing, that I can never like sushi, helped me overcome my stage fright, and overall made me a better version of what I was before I met you. With you, I felt like there was someone that listened to me. Be it my darkest thoughts or my silliest desires, and I guess that’s all I needed- to be heard. With you, I could be the real me.
But then you left. I know you didn’t want to, but you had to. And, despite that, I’ll never forget you. I’ll never forget that you had the biggest part in making me the person I am today. You taught me never to run away from my problems, that iced mocha reigns supreme on every other being on this planet and that binge-watching isn’t the only way to watch shows (the jury is still out on that). Today, as I sip on my Mocha in this cosy café where we had our first date, I want you to know that my love for you will never change. I wish the best to you and I hope you keep bringing light into people’s lives the way you brought in mine.
It’s true, relationships die, love doesn’t.
