Letters of Love – Forget Me Not

Sometimes, we mourn the one that got away. There can be any number of reasons why a relationship doesn’t work out. There are times when our mutual interests dissipate and what brought us together is no longer there. It can be a change in goals, a change in location – or simply a change of heart. Our Letter of Love today is from a woman who is writing to the one who got away.

Forget Me Not

Dear Michael,

You once accused me of being crazy and kooky. You said I did things on impulse and that I would one day learn to regret those impulses. I always thought that was funny. My relationship with you began on an impulse. I asked you to have a cup of coffee with me. I had no reason to think you would say yes and even less reason to think it would be anymore than a cup of coffee.

That cup of coffee turned into one of the most profound relationships. We lasted just a little over 26 months, three days. I remember every moment, every touch and every kiss. I remember the little bistro where we would meet for sandwiches on our lunch breaks. I remember the different bars we went to in order to listen to alternative music and check out their local bands.

Everything about our relationship was an impulse. It was an impulse to steal away on the weekends to go to Cancun, to Atlantic City, to Las Vegas and once to Tahoe. It was an impulse to move in together and it was impulses that lead to me moving out. You said I would regret my impulses one day and three years later, I am regretting the impulse that inspired me to take a job in another state, when you didn’t want to move.

I know you’ve moved on with your life and I’ve moved on with mine. But you were the best part of those years and I will always love you for it. I wish we could have made our impulse last longer than it did, so this is my Valentine to you, and I love you from three years in the past. I regret the impulse that took me away, because you didn’t go with me. I do not regret where the impulse has taken me. Thank you for being a part of my life. Maybe, one day, we can be more than a memory.
