We've been at this awhile now, and I'm finally starting to come to my senses.
Sure, I love you. Hell, I love you like crazy. I thought we would be together forever, get married, have babies, the whole nine.
I had so many dreams for me and you, and we have created some amazing memories that I will carry with me for the rest of my life... But I think it's time for me to leave.
You used to make me feel so happy, so free, so alive. Every time I was with you, I felt like flying. You pulled something out of me that I did not even know existed, and I thank you for that.
But lately, those feelings have faded away. Now, instead of daydreaming about our future, I find myself daydreaming about our past. Who you used to be, who we used to be.
I'd give anything to have that back for just one day, but despite our best efforts, that time for us is gone.
It breaks my heart to know that we have to go our separate ways, but I also know that's what's best for both my happiness and yours. We can promise that we'll stay friends, but we all know how that goes...
I never thought we'd reach this point, and it's gonna kill me to see you with someone else. I guess that's just the way life goes.
Some people are meant to love each other but aren't meant to be together.
It's going to take me a while to get over you, but I hope that you will cherish our memories the same way that I will.
I hope that we both find peace in knowing that this is the right thing to do.
I hope this life carries you to every place you want to go, and that you find happiness with every new page that you turn.
And though it pains me to say, I hope the woman that you end up with loves you even half as much as I do, because you deserve that and more.
I hope you remember me when you tell stories to your grandchildren, and you never have one single regret about the love that we shared because it was real, and it was beautiful.
And above all, I hope you know that no matter how far you go, wherever you are if you ever need me, I'm only one phone call away.
