Dear The Future
Dear The Future, I know you promised to make everything beautiful. I know I've loved every day I've dreamed of your arrival, I know I said I'd wait for you no matter how long it took. I have found someone new. Only he isn't new, I've known him my whole life. He is not thrilling or brilliant like the hopes we had. He can't tell stories like the ones you told that filled my heart with longing. He promises me nothing, takes me nowhere, but everywhere I am, he is there walking with me. I know you will have no trouble finding someone else, you have so much going for you. I know I am a fool to let you go when you have so much to offer. I know we can still be good friends. For the first time in years, today is a good day. For the first time in years I am happy.
