I Hope One Day You Are Able To Let Go

I hope one day you see how much I truly loved you.

I hope with all my heart, that you find whatever it is that makes you happy in life and whatever it is you are looking for.

I hope you see that I truly saw you for who you were and I accepted you for you who are. Flaws, brokenness, failures, successes, happiness, the good, the bad, the hurt, the pain—just all of it. Everything that made you you.

I hope one day you are able to let go… of everything. Grieve, heal, and continue on.

I hope life brings you a beautiful happiness, calmness, and clarity.

I hope one day you see how much I held your hand and truly wanted to stand by your side through it all, but I felt like my hand was reaching and you never reached for it back.

Each love is absolutely different, but something inside my soul just felt connected with yours. Maybe it was all the hurt we went through, maybe it was how we loved, maybe it was because we simply loved one another the way we needed to in those moments.

Maybe it was because we let one another into deep parts of our hearts and soul that most people don’t ever get a chance to see. Maybe just for those reasons we were put together, simply because we needed each other. To see one another and help one another through the thickest times in our life…

I hope one day you see just how much I gave, and gave, and gave and when things got even tougher, you didn’t show up for me.

I hope one day you see you are the worst heartbreak I have ever had in my entire life. For many reasons, I’ve never had an aching so deep. Truly though, I pray and I wish the absolute best for you.

I hope you see, this is me, I’m letting go.
