You consistently amaze me. You are beautiful, funny, kind, generous, intelligent, wise, honest, caring, easy-going…it is almost unbelievable. But as you see the best in people, it makes you slightly vulnerable and that makes me worry about you sometimes.
If I’m honest, if it wasn’t for your kindness (or naivety – I still don’t know which it was) I would have thrown away my marriage before it had even begun. I think this is part of the reason I hold you in such high regard. You put the feelings of your best friend above everything else at a key moment in all our lives, and if it wasn’t for your generosity, our life would not be the same as it is now. So thank you.
I want nothing more than to tell you how I feel, but at the same time I have no idea whether that would be welcomed. If you don’t already know my feelings, it could shatter your perception of who I am, and what my whole life has been about. I love my partner and I love my children more than words can express, but you are almost an art-form. Your human nature is beautiful; no malice, spite or jealousy. You’re selfless and generous, and despite the queues for your affection you are entirely oblivious and not in the slightest conceited. You are practically perfect in every way. Mary Poppins couldn’t even come close.
I just want you to know how deeply loved you are. You are one of a kind, and a beacon of human goodness. I hope life treats you with the respect you deserve x
