Sweet Sad

A letter to the girl who simply stop loving me.

By Abel Udoekene

You don’t know what you have done, but I’m happy to know you.

I’m happy you dominated my thoughts, became my weakness, my pride and my hope.
I’m happy you made me to realize that I should love myself more, and do all I can to be the best.
I’m happy your resolution to let me be is grooming me to be a better man.

I have learned the hard way that love is not fiction, sometimes you have to let go to allow it to find you.
That relationship are more complicated than I thought, most times it make you empty that you regret everything, and most time the happiness it’s bring is endless.

The first day We met I was so shy but we became friends, you were a gift, a teacher and a good student. I became your adviser and you never stop calling me any time you needed answers to questions that were either confusing, critical and religious.

You became my praying partner, my talk mate, I was so free to share anything and everything with you, we were like a team and I was already planning to write letters to our children preparing their mind and sharing with them the tale of our love.
But then you send me a short quit notice “You have to move on”. I accepted it and smile about it.

I understand your concern that’s why I didn’t charge you to the court of argument, I just wanted to fulfill your desires.
I knew I was special not perfect, I was so afraid, jealous and insecure that one day you will just walk away and leave me empty. But I was wrong.

I want you to know why I let you go. I want you to know why I am not fighting anymore.
I let you go because I believe in You, I let you go because I know you are special,
I let you go because your story will inspire tomorrow.

Please keep being you. Keep striving for the best. I understand I wasn’t the best, but I pray he treat you well.

Thank you for everything!
