I held on and I made sure not to drop it. I never was aware how precious it was. Somedays I just stuck it in my bag, while other days I held on for dear life.
I didn’t think that I’d ever lose it. It never occurred to me that you wanted it back. After all you were the one who gave it to me.
Sometimes I think it just fell through the cracks, that you didn’t really want it back. I might have dropped some of it along the way. Hiding what you’d given made me feel like no one could take it.
I retraced my steps, I picked up some of the pieces. I don’t think it’s enough though. You didn’t think I’d try and find it. You thought I’d given up.
I just wanted to let you know that I didn’t mean to drop it. I didn’t know it meant so much to you, to me, to us. I’m still holding onto the pieces incase you want the rest back.
One day I hope you can give it to someone who will take better care of it. Maybe I never knew how because mine was broken from the beginning.
Relationships aren’t just about the one you love, the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. I think of relationships as any interaction with another person that I want to invest my time and my life with. This includes friends, family, and (one day) a significant other. But what if you didn’t realize what you had?
Live, Laugh, Love…..Always,
