Dear you

(A post via Shopgirl)

Dear you,

It’s been over ten years since you’ve left me but the memories of you are still alive and I deeply miss you. 

It’s been over ten years since I last saw you, since I last heard your voice, since I last saw your smile. 

It’s been over ten years since you’ve left me but I didn’t forget you and I never will; not a day goes by when I don’t think about you. Sometimes the thought of you makes me smile, other times it makes me cry. I often remember all the stories you’ve told me; I also didn’t forget the magic hours we spent watching cartoons. 

It’s been over ten years since you’ve hugged me for the last time. 

It’s been over ten years since we’ve said goodbye.

I’m passing this one over to everyone who would like to write a letter to someone. A letter can be written to whomever and about whatever you want. It must begin with "Dear you" and you can only use pronouns.
