An Open Letter to the Man Who Opened My Eyes To the World
I know you might be reading this right at this very moment. Remember how you took care of me when I was feeling ill? Remember how you made me happy when you brought me to that island? Yes, everything is still clear to me up to the very last memory when we departed before I left the hotel. Remember how you hate how I wash your clothes in the bathroom sink and made the floor so wet, and you were so mad that I just laugh off? Remember how crazy we were back then? Those were the times, I could say. . .
“You opened my eyes to a whole new world.”
I am a dreamer since I was a kid, and all I know was to dream, I didn’t know how to make it all come true step-by-step. I didn’t know how to chase it, how to live it, how to be it. You have released the butterfly in me, it’s like metamorphosis, it’s like going out if my cocoon and when you came it was like magic!
I would like to thank you for letting me see how beautiful the world is, for telling me not to sell myself short, for treating me like a princess. For a very short period of time you allowed me to grow, you helped me become a better person, you gave me hope that chasing dreams won’t be that easy but it’s all going to be worth it in the end.
“It was quick but it was real.”
Everything comes to an end, and fate didn’t really agree to us; you have to go. It was the most heart-breaking moment in my entire existence. Every fiber of my body died little by little, a shiver in my spine I cannot explain. Maybe life is like that, you have to let go of people you really love. When they come back, they’re meant for you, if not, they will just become another memory.
Thank you for the memories, til’ then my friend.
All the best,
