for letting me go
for letting me down
for making me sad
for making me grow up.
For making me finally know that maybe being alone wasn’t something to fear.
For knowing I needed to be able to do things on my own and that I didn’t need anyone to fix me but, my God and to finally just be me.
For knowing that even though you would remember me for the rest of your life, I would forget you and would resent you until the last memory faded away from my mind.
And until I read some old messages between us I wouldn’t have thought of you and now I am erasing you again and I wanted to say thank you once more before I close this chapter again and bury you away again.
