He is the most tender, deliberate man I have known. He gives me a love that is pure, and honest, and constant. No, he is not you. I used to hate him for it, but now at times it is what I love the most.
When I chose you and you left me in the cold, he stayed by my side. Your scorn was matched by his loving forgiveness. We have suffered together and grown together. We have built a life for each other.
It took me a very long time to get over you. Each time I would lapse back into talking to you, it was like starting the process over. You kept peeling open the wounds in my heart left by your absence, whether you intended to or not.
The wounds are healed now. I have left you in the past where you belong. I hope you find your happiness as I have found mine. I have found a love that will last a lifetime. I wish nothing but the same for you.
