This is part of my 31 Day Five Minute Free Writes challenge within a challenge. I will be linking up with 31 Day Challenge at The Nester's as well as at Heading Home. For a list of all my letters you can go here.
My dear Richard:
I just want you to know that I still care. I will always care. That is not something that goes away. You can't love the way that we did and then stop caring when one person goes away. I feel you slipping further away each day. Not from my heart. But from my head. Even though it is stuffed full of memories I am having a harder time actually seeing your face in my mind. I have your pictures and I look at them often. But your face is slipping away.
I imagine that is normal. Part of the grieving. Part of the brains way of protecting me from so much pain. I won't forget you. You need not worry about that. But I won't, probably, suffer so much each day. And I know that will make you happy. You never liked to see me suffer. You hated it if I was in pain. No matter if the pain was physical or emotional. You wanted to always take my pain away.
So I want you to know that while I still grieve I still care. I will never stop. You were not my first love. But you were my last love!
Forever and ever,
