The day you said you were leaving our home was the most tragic day for me. I was so confused, alone, and helpless. After having been apart from you for several weeks, I never felt more hurt and empty my entire life. There’s no one else to blame but me because I realized that I pushed you away. I do understand why you left me.

I apologize that it took me a long time to see that I’ve hurt you in so many ways and that I’ve ignored you far too often. I’ve realized that I placed my career ahead of our marriage, but I’m giving you my word that I’ve already set my priorities straight. My work has no meaning without you beside me. I hope you will give me an opportunity to show this to you. Presently, I leave the office at exactly 5 PM unlike before where I worked even beyond 6 PM. When you come back to our home, I will be there to have dinner with you. No more late nights from work. I want to give you more of my time and most of my attention.

For many years, you’ve told me that you want us to move to a more modest house in a friendlier neighborhood. You specifically wished that we were living in Avondale. I know now that I’ve been very selfish by wanting to stay here, but right now, I am ready to give way to your wishes. I just want you to feel happy and comfortable in our home. I’ve even spoken with real estate salesmen in Avondale, and have given out my resume to companies around the area so that I can find work closer to our home and get rid of the long drives.

When I remembered the way I’ve behaved towards you and how I’ve been unwise on my priorities, I experienced a deep anguish. Saying sorry is not enough that is why I’m wishing that I can personally give you my apology. Despite the wrong choices I’ve made, there is something that will not change — my deep love for you. I will always love you and I am willing to fight for you, even if that means that I have to fight with myself. I wish you can appreciate the fact that I’ve truly changed and I’m taking steps to renew my life. You’re far more important than anything in this world, and I long to prove this not only in words but also in actions. I am devoted to you and your happiness.

Please consider my dinner invitation at Woodfire Grill this coming Friday night. We’ve spent wonderful moments at that restaurant. Can you still remember when we had Grilled Pork Chops and Vegetable Kebabs during our first date? Let us order these same dishes again for memories’ sake. Let’s relive the moments when we first fell in love. I feel that our love for each other is still there; we just need to nurture that love. I just want to prove to you that we can still be happy together and that our greatest moments are yet to happen. I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me.

I need and miss you. Loving you always.
