I want to thank you for whatever we went through. Some might say it was just a teeny-bopper thing. Some say it’s just a taste of the real thing. But I just want to say thank you for being part of yesterday.
No, this is not a heartbreak and moving on letter, this is with gratitude in nature. Grateful for the past and the experiences, for the future and the lessons I’ll bring with me, and the present that I still have the chance to talk to you like friends. I’d like to think that we are.
Sometimes it confuses me that I feel eager to talk to you. Maybe it’s because of what I just told you. You were the type of person that I will never get bored having a conversation with, because you seem to have a different take on everything else, or if we agree on a topic, we can discuss every nook and cranny of it. So for that I thank you.
Thank you for being the person you are when I met you; and you met the naïve me, back then. I cannot say that the then-me and who I am now is still the same, but the person who is writing this, is thanking you for that experience. Not just the smiles (though not physically), it was the thought provoking moments that we shared that I will always treasure.
You said I’d like to be in a safe place, maybe I am, for I fear that if I be bold in everything I say, it might be confusing and at the same time, tactless, not to mention, dangerous and inappropriate.
Yes, I think, and say, and do things safely now, this is what I learned from you as well – that I become careful who I set my mind with, my attention with, my life with. No, I do not blame you, for we know that it was a mutual thing, and I will treasure the memories.
For others it could be funny if they will know the whole story, others might think that I should get over this for it was years ago, but then I seem to need to put it down in writing; and let you know about this. I’m not sure though.
We may have separate yet still interlinked ways, I still thank you for all the things you made me learn. I still thank you that we have times that we still talk (even argue) over the simplest of things.
I thank you for being part of my life.
Did I mention that this is the first time I wrote a love letter in my life?
It may not contain the words of love, but in our case, I think, gratitude is enough.
