The day you left me seems only like yesterday and I can still remember every single detail of that fateful day. I was sitting on our loveseat wearing my favorite jeans and my old college t-shirt. I clearly recall that I was reading the latest novel by Sidney Sheldon. I cannot explain why I remember even the minor details, but the thing I remember most was the sinking feeling in my stomach when you said you were leaving me. I thought my heart stopped beating that day, and all I could feel was the cold numbness of where my heart was supposed to be.

I am not saying that it was a total surprise for me. I was aware that our relationship was slowly falling apart but I thought that since we love each other, everything would just fall back into place. I was thinking that it was simply a dark cloud in our relationship that will one day pass.

When you left though, I’ve been thinking about it a lot, and I realized that things were really worse than how I thought they were. I felt that you were not happy, and instead of talking things over with you, I chose to keep a blind eye on things with the hope that things will just go back to the way they’re supposed to be. Instead, you left our home. I admit that I was selfish and that I always placed my needs and wants before yours.

I need you back. I’m willing to give enough effort to make things better between us. Please let us give time to talk about this. If you think that seeing a counselor is a good idea, let us do so. I promise you that I will make things different. I will do everything to put my selfishness behind me and instead, consider your feelings, your needs, and even your wants. I love you with all my heart even though I might not have shown it. In fact, I love you even more now since you’ve left realizing the value of what I’ve lost.

Please let us see each other and talk about this. Let’s spend some time together at Bellevue Lake where we spent our first date. I will bring lunch and we’ll discuss things together. I really long to see you. Are you free on Saturday at around 3 PM? I will be sitting on our favorite bench.
