Thank you for helping me to see things differently and for awakening feelings I thought I was too broken or jaded to ever feel again.
Thank you for being my friend first, if that is all you are, but through that friendship, though it grows into nothing more, is what mended a piece of my heart that I thought was forever lost from the last break.
Just by being you, honest and real, you showed me, whether you realized it or not, that there are still men out there, regardless of their age, that still believe in being a gentleman.
Men who believe in romance, honesty, loyalty, and real love, even when they have been hurt themselves.
You may not see me as nothing more than a friend, but our time together opened my eyes and part of my heart to memories I had forgotten… or possibly locked away because they hurt too much to think on.
… That midnight walk on the beach under the stars, hand in hand with my love from so long ago, us holding hands, me watching and listening to the waves, him stopping me, pulling me close and dancing to a love song that he heard from the hotel tiki bar just on the other side of the dunes. For a moment it felt like we were the only ones there, lost in each other, the music, the waves, sand and stars.
…The day he came home and handed me a rose, a beautiful white rose, not store bought. He had picked it from a friend’s rose bush because he said it was so beautiful, it made him think of me and he had to pick it and give it to me.
…Of simple dinners at home and cuddling on the couch to watch movies, of cooking dinner together, of packing his lunch and putting little notes in his lunch box, having coffee together on the porch...
…and of the night we had a huge fight, there were many tears from both of us, but instead of turning away, we talked until the sun came up, not wanting to go to bed angry or alone…and growing closer because of it.
So many memories and feelings that I was afraid to remember…
Thank you for mending that piece of my heart that has given me the courage to try again.
