Blog Secret


Thanks so much to Nilsa at SoMi for hosting Blog Secret! It was very cathartic and I hope we can do it again. So without further ado, I bring you an anonymous post from one of over 75 bloggers.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear You,
I miss you. I considered taking a semester off before changing
schools because of you.
You're leaving for South America and there is a very
good chance that you will never talk to me again.
We can both lie and say
that we'll keep in touch, but neither of us has enough of what the other lacks
to keep things going on.

I'm realizing more and more how perfect we
are for each other. We are alike enough that I don't fear
anything with you,
and you fit perfectly in my arms. I've never slept as well as that first night
next to you.
And I've never had such a long walk as the one from your room
to the train station that day.

I bring your walls down. And you help me
fortify myself. It works. It works like really nothing else I've ever
felt.
I'm not going to say it's love, because for the first time I understand what
love is about. It's not about
love at first sight. It's about seeing
potential. Enough potential to take all of the risks that would arise.

I
guess what I'm trying to say is: I'd wait two long South American years for you.

As I read this, the Today Show is playing the theme song from the movie, The Titanic. Talk about a love song to accompany a love letter. This piece is beautiful. Love does conquer all.

I hope you say this to him/her - just for your piece of mind.

Beautifully written.

Mermanda said...

This is beautiful. Written with so much feeling.

What a heartfelt secret. Say it--I did--it took us 5 years to get here, but we are. It was worth every risk, chance and all the tears!!
Take chance!!!

"Enough potential to take all of the risks that would arise." Perfectly said. Good luck!

I'm not sure if I'm going to direct her to this yet.

Thank you for the positive response though.

I love this. It made me all warm and happy and I hope after those 2 long years you are able to be together.

I'm so glad I got this post. I think those 2 South American years may be long, but worth it.

well-intentioned heartbreaker said...

well that is the sweetest thing.

i hope it works out.

Ginger said...

I think you should say it, or share it...a beautiful secret.

Holly said...

Sounds to me like you've got nothing to lose and an awful lot to gain. :)

Wow. That may very well be the best description of love that I have ever read.

Good luck. I hope those two years are not spent in vain.

Princess Pointful said...

This is sweet. I think you should maybe tell them :)

Stacy said...

AW! If they don't see this, TELL them!
I hope you both get what you want!!

kc mom said...

I check back here often to find out if you let her read this??? Please give us an update. Oh--the downside of blogsecret??!!!!

Her birthday is today. I sent her a card with this link scribbled on the back. I'm still waiting to see if she read it or not.

I'll keep you updated.

Thank you so much for the update.

Saratogajean thank you for posting this and thank you all for your positive comments and checking back on this.

We spoke a little while ago and she did not say anything about this. She got my birthday present, and was happy with it, but I doubt she read this. I don't know what I'm gonna do. I don't want to sully her birthday weekend so it probably wont be now.

I'm finally making my way through the rest of the BlogSecrets and just read this one. I wish I'd seen this sooner! I'm dying to know how this turns out - what a beautiful letter! I'm so glad you sent that. Life is too short to let those opportunities pass us by. Keep us still updated!
