Dear Beautiful You

Dear Beautiful You

1, 2, 3.

How many of you there are.

How many years of birthdays I've missed.

How many thousands of miles keep us physically apart. 

The world is interesting, it keeps turning even when we aren't ready for it. Time is always moving on. We are all growing, maturing, and changing. The person I was when I left, is not who I am today and I know the same goes for you. 

The question is, is it possible for us to have a relationship, in the mix of certain circumstances?

One would hope so, but one almost questions that reality. How does one go about getting to know another when there is a lot of conflicting histories. Will you give me a chance? Will you look beyond just what you are told? Beyond what I tell you, what your parents tell you and find a path for yourself? 

The thing is, I had a lot of these letters planned out. 4 in fact. My plan was to do one a month. But I find myself not wanting to preach at you, which is how you could take these letters. I know that growing up that's all that was ever done to me, so I do not want to do that to you. So this is the last one. 

The last one of course is full of many words. I want to tell you to be proud of yourself. Love yourself and be happy. Most of all I want you to know that I am always here for you. Even as we grow and mature, if you ever do desire a relationship with me, I'm here.
