An Open Letter to the One that Got Away

Thank you for all those stolen moments that we had. Those moments that I still cherish, that I keep remembering when I know I shouldn't.

Thank you for all those songs that I can call ours, and no one can take away. All those words and melodies that remind me of you, that let me sleep even when I know you're beside somebody else.

Thank you for the messages that I woke up to, that I expected every day, that started my days, that I held on to for such a long time.

Thank you for making me feel alive, even when forbidden, even when we had to make excuses just to be with each other, even for those times when we knew it was not right.

Thank you for the glimmer of hope that I could be with someone I liked, someone I knew who was genuine, someone I wanted, someone I needed.

Thank you for making me realize I couldn't get everything I wanted given the circumstances, given the situation, given the timing.

Thank you for opening my eyes to regret, to chances, and to opportunities.

Thank you for showing me that I could live a life that's different from what I thought I needed, that I could survive without you.

Thank you for teaching me patience, so I can wait for the one I deserve, the one who will make me complete again, the one who can make me believe I'm not alone.

Thank you for making me stronger. Thank you for making me wiser.

Thank you for making me want to go out again, and believe that there's a happy ending for me that's the same as yours.

Thank you for all the memories. Thank you crossing paths with me. Thank you for making my heart beat as it did. Thank you for being the one that got away.
