I wish you well. I really do. I was so angry for so long, that I forgot what you were to me. I forgot how much you saved me, because I couldn’t see past my own self-pity.
I had convinced myself that you were different. And the truth is, you were. I’ve never felt more alive than when I was with you. You and I weren’t meant to spend our lives together; just meant to spend a few months of our lives in love.
I never meant to fall for you. The first time I said it, I didn’t even mean it. I just didn’t want to hurt you. But the more I said it, the more right it felt. And by the time it was over, I was so deeply in love with you that my eyes couldn’t focus on anything else.
The way you left, as suddenly as you came in, it hurt. That pain, I’ll always have. My heart was broken, truly broken, for the first time. But you showed me what life was supposed to be. You showed me how to appreciate real love. And for that, I can never repay you.
I wish we still talked. I wish we could still be friends. But we both know that isn’t possible. I’m back with her, and you’re back with him. So the rest of our story, unfortunately, is that we’ll never be in each others’ lives again. And while that makes me terribly sad, it gives me a little peace as well. Because I will always have the memory of you, and I will never be able to forget what you’ve meant to me. I will always, ALWAYS love you.
And what I’ve learned from you, is that it’s possible to be loved as much as I have loved back.
I wish you well in your life. And I hope your daughter becomes as beautiful a woman as you are. You were the best love I’ve ever had. I only hope you get the life you deserve.
Goodbye Jacqueline. Remember, elephants never forget.
