Final Goodbye After Reconciliation

Love Letter

My dear ...

As I sit down to write this letter, I find myself staring into space. Many thoughts are flooding my mind at the moment and I don’t even know where to begin. I ponder on what could have been—the mistakes that fractured us—the regrets that I will hold deep in my heart till the end of all time.

‘Sorry’ doesn’t even begin to cover how I feel about what I did. You’ve told me that you forgive me and I believe you. I know that you continue to work on trust issues and I can live with that, but I don’t believe I can ever forgive myself for my transgressions. Somehow, way down deep, I am not allowing self-forgiveness and maybe that’s part of the wedge that sits between us right now.

All I know is that our relationship seems to have been fatally fractured. Though we’ve both tried hard to mend it, there seems to be a chasm between us keeping us from truly reuniting—preventing that restoration to what we had before. It breaks my heart to see us struggle like this. We were the ones who couldn’t live without each other, remember?

But sadly, I know in my heart that we are now trying to hold on to what could have been. It’s not working and I think we both realize that it’s time to let go. Even though tears of sorrow wash over my face as I write this, I realize that it is time to finally set each other free. You are such a wonderful person, __(Name)__ and you deserve only the best in a __(mate/wife/husband/etc.)__. Sadly, I will always be sorry that I couldn’t be that for you and I will forever miss what we once had together.

Now has come the time to say my final good-bye. You will always have claim to a huge part of my heart, __(Name)__, and I can only hope that we are able to remain friends. I wish for you only good things in your life.

Forever in my heart,
