My best friend asked me if I ever saw myself being with you again. I smiled, and I told her that you’re the kind of girl who crosses by a guy’s life once and then never again. I don’t know what it is about you that made me feel that way, but I know that we will never be able to pick up where we left off because it’s been so long and we’ve changed so much.
I told her that even if I wanted to be with you, I’m not sure I can - because you broke me. And if you were the one for me, you wouldn’t have left me.
I told her that in time, I’m going to carry on with my life. I’m gonna go out into the world because there is so much living to do - so many places to go to, lots of people to meet, and dozens of things to cross off my bucket list.
“And to find the person you’ll love forever?”, she asked.
I looked at her, smiled and answered, “I already did.”
