I Never Wanted To Let You Go


What are we? What are we now?

I’ve given it some time and I know that we weren’t meant to end like this. It’s unfortunate and disheartening coming to terms with where we are today.

I loved you, but why did I have to let you go?

You were the hands that kept me together and the person that I never knew I needed.

Your love breathed life into me and motivated me to open up myself to you. I had every reason in the book to expose my vulnerabilities to you and I was okay with that.

I had never peeled back so many layers of myself until the day I found you.

You will always be the love of my life and the butterflies in my stomach.

There was never a day that went by when I found myself unsure of your love. You gave your all in our relationship, but mostly, you gave me your heart.

We never needed a label to tell the world because even the world could see that we were meant to be.

The love I had for you still reverberates in my heart and maybe it will remain that way through the years.

Our love was defined by passion, compromise, and sincerity. It was in the way I found home in your eyes, your heart, your arms, and your kiss. I found a love that was worthwhile in you and even though it took awhile for me to get there, you patiently waited because you knew; you’ve always known it this entire time.

I’m still learning why we don’t always end up with the people that we love most. In fact, I’m trying to come to grips as to why I cannot have my favorite person to accompany me throughout my entire life.

The café has felt incredibly empty and silent without you there and there hasn’t been a day that’s gone by when my eyes are not scouting the room in hopes of finding you.

Right now I don’t have the answers as to why love doesn’t always end in happiness and who’s to say that one day I’ll ever find those reasons?

There are only two things that I know at the moment; that I will always love you, and that I never wanted to let you go.
