Dear Will,

Congratulations! You’re a graduate! I hope my present arrived in the mail before you take off for home. I wish I was back in town so I could see you. I miss you too! If you’re serious about visiting Italy I would love to show you the sights – it really is wonderful here.

I always knew you could do it and I’m so proud of you. Remember me when you’re busy making your first million!

Love always,
Em

Dear Will,

Where are you? I haven’t heard from you in a while and I hope that everything is okay. Mark met your Mom at the store and she said you’re having a great time in New York. I’m so glad and I can’t wait to hear all about your new job! Let me know you’re okay!

Speak soon,
Em

Will,

Are you getting my letters? I really hope you’re safe and sound. Let me know what’s going on with you.

Concerned,
Em

Will,

It’s officially been a year since I last heard from you and I know I should just get over it, which is what everyone is telling me to do, but I can’t. The truth is this year has been the most difficult year of my life. I guess that saying about absence making the heart grow fonder is really true.

I always knew you would go on to do great things and I’m so proud of you, even if you don’t want to know me anymore. I wish you could have given me some sort of explanation but then I have to remind myself you owe me nothing – you were never mine to lose. I let you go all of those years ago and it was inevitable that you wouldn’t wait around forever.

So, I guess I have nothing to lose now and I should just put my cards on the table. The truth is, I don’t know if I’ll ever find anyone I loved as much as you. I think you were my “one” and it hurts to know that I’m no longer yours.  But, as my Dad always said, if you love someone you have to let them go so that’s what I’m doing – I love you but I know I have to let you go.

I hope that you’ll have a life filled with amazing things and that you share the side of yourself that I saw all of those years ago. I enclose a photo album to return the favour you gave to me. I still hope that one day I’ll get to see all of the great memories you built up over this time we were apart. I’ve never been good at goodbyes so for now, I’ll just write something that my friend Giovanna loves to say -‘Il primo amore non si scorda mai’ – true love never grows old.

Emily.
