I fell in love with my oldest friends girlfriend. For many years,
indeed, most of my life, I considered him to be my best friend. But
change got in the way and so did she. I love her still. And When I
just found this letter to her, I wept old sorrows and watered them anew.
I confessed my love for her by an old fence in the cold of winter. The
dead of nigh, huddled together when she should have been back at home
This the letter.
There’s some things I need for you to know.
Firstly you must know that if I could, every day I would serenade you
with poetry, saying like so many lovers do, that I love you. That I

understand your beautiful self and your wonderful predicaments that
are true testament to your loving character.

feelings will stay true. I know that when we are in the right place
and time, something beautiful will happen. Also, if we were to never
work out, you have me, and will always have me as a friend. If
anything, you must never doubt that.
You’re a beautiful artist who’s art affects all areas of your life
through your loving application. The world rewards you with so many
beautiful things including the great challenges you’ve been enduring,
true tests of your faith in beauty. Ever wiser, you push on
heroically, collecting the tides of the world so that you are only
ever brighter and more beautiful. It is for all this that I love you
and always will.
