One day, years from now I will be sitting with my grand daughter and she will ask me about the one that got away and I just know that you are the man I will tell her about. You are the man I will be talking about even when I am 80. The boy with the stars for eyes and the devilish smile. She will ask me why I never married you and I will tell her that I never had to courage to admit my feelings to you. I will tell her that no one has ever intimidated as much as you did and that the more I fell for you, the more steps backwards I took. Till eventually I had lost you. You are the man I will tell her about when I encourage her to go all out for love and tell the boy she loves how she feels before it’s too late. You are the man who has always been everything I ever needed even when I did not know what I needed. You are the man I will forever carry in my heart.
