Goodbye dear Stranger

I loved you with all my heart, but now I am beginning to let you go. I have to. You need to be rid of me to become the man I can see in you. I was protecting you, admiring you. I got you. I understood and encouraged you.
But now I have to go.
This, the distance that is growing between us with every breath we cannot share; it is killing us.
Slowly. Tormenting.
Until we are ashes and dust.
Lost in the dark.
Unimportant remains of a better time.
You will not find another me. I don’t exist twice. Maybe that is just as good. For you. And for me.
I would have given you everything. But you were too afraid to let it happen. Too hurt by the past to allow me to love you with all my heart.
