To admit we had something substantial and important is an understatement. It was monumental, and a pivotal turning point in my life. You gave me a sense of purpose and belonging in a world which I thought could never accept me. You demonstrated that what I am asking for in a relationship is never too much. I will not and will never insult what we had, because that would invalidate our experiences, and therefore, my memories of us. You were the best out of the best, even though sometimes a forever person isn’t made to stay in your life forever, too.
I wish I could have told you how much you meant to me. I wish I could have reminded you of something so simple: You are loved by family, friends, and even strangers.
