Hello Old Friend,
I hope this letter finds you well.
I don’t know why I feel compelled to write to you but I do.
I am still unpacking from my travels and I saw this picture of you and I.
It triggered many good memories.
There are a few things that have been on my conscience for some time now.
I figured it would “go away” but it hasn’t. I can’t believe it still bothers me.
Something tells me to “make things right” with you, so here it goes….
I know this sounds silly but it’s been a long time now since we actually spoke to one another. I, honestly, am not sure why you stopped speaking to me. You became a stranger to me. I know you have a good heart. I also hope you know that I never had any malicious intentions toward you. I know we both “agreed” that a relationship was not feasible for us and that it was perfectly understood by the both of us.
I also figured that we would remain friends—to me friendship was implied.
I harbor no anger or hard feelings towards you. I just have sweet fond memories of you and the time we shared.
And now that I’ve had ample time to reflect, I’ve realized that we had a special bond. We had a lot in common and we had a lot of fun.
Thank you for showing me around SoCal. I appreciated it.
Lastly, I never wanted to admit this to you, but you kind of stole my heart.
Maybe that’s why I am writing you this letter now after all this time…
I don’t expect anything from you.
I feel so silly and foolish. I have many regrets.
I guess what I’m trying to convey in this letter is “I’m sorry.”
I’m sorry if I ever hurt you or made you feel less than you should.
I never meant any of it. I wish I could go back and do things differently.
You’re a gracious and kind person. Stay that way. It’s rare to meet and know good people in this day and age, I can attest to that.
So, please take this as a gesture of good-will and friendship.
From my heart,
P.S. A wise man once said, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
