I Can't Say Goodbye

Sample Letter #1

We met almost four years ago, and my life hasn't been the same since. You began as my friend, someone I could talk to, laugh with, someone who was always there for me, even when there were gaps because one of us had left for a while. Somewhere in the past 2 ' years, though, I fell in love with you and, ever since then, I've always been waiting here for you, but waiting for you to realize I am here, and that all you have to do is ask, and I'd be there with you. Instead, I sit back and watch you become unhappy because you are alone, all because the one you love now can't--or won't do--something to make you happy.

We've not talked for a long while now, so I'm afraid I've lost you and honestly don't know how I'm going to handle losing you. I cannot bear thinking of a life without you in it. I know there is going to come a time--and my heart is telling me it's now--that I'm going to have to say goodbye to you, but I cannot bring myself to do it. Since I've fallen in love with you, I've tried to get over how I feel about you, but I just can't. It always come back to hoping you will realize my love for you and fall in love with me too, if only you'd give us a chance. I love you and will always be here if you need me, just don't make me say goodbye.
