It's never easy to sit back and hear someone you'd loved so much at one time or another tell you that you were their 'one who got away.'
Whenever this has happened to me, or I hear that it's happened to friends of mine, the most important question I think of is "Why now? Why tell me now when I've moved on and I'm happy?"
I know that I'm special. I know just how much I love. I love with everything I have. Why do you feel the need to tell me now that you miss me? It doesn't change anything, I'm still not there because you're not here. Not really.
I love the idea of knowing that you feel the way that you do. Knowing I was the one who could have been the one for you. But the reality is, I'm not.
I know I'm not because you let me go the first time.
It shouldn't have to take you losing me to realize that I'm one of the greatest. It shouldn't take me walking away and moving on to show you how much you miss me. It shouldn't take me being happy for you to realize how unhappy you are without me.
The fact of the matter is, if I was really the one you are supposed to be with, you wouldn't come back to me and tell me I'm the one who got away.
You would have never let me go in the first place.
