I hope you will understand, my love, that my pain comes not from you, but from the situation that has made you feel a need to keep me at a distance.
Because you have been open and honest with me, I know a little (perhaps a great deal) about what what is in your mind and heart. What I know is that all the reasons I love you are valid. They have not changed.
Because I know you, my faith in you is undiminished. I believe, deep in my heart, that time will bring you back to me, believe beyond all doubt that you are worth waiting for.
Yes, I am in misery now. I hurt, and I mourn the loss of the joy you have brought me, but I do not place the blame for that on you. If you are being true to yourself, there is no reason for you to feel guilty.
You know what I want: On the day your heart is free, I want us to touch each other, look into each others' eyes, and make an open choice, unaffected by past pain, about what happens next.
I need you to know that, my love.
And I want everyone else to know that.
