An Open But Forever Unread Letter

Hello there, long lost best friend.

It has been a long time and I am sure you are aware of that too. I would like to say that it was your decision alone to keep each other out of our lives but, we both know that it was for the best. Else we would just continue to be hurt.

It is not my heart that I am worried about, but yours. Breaking my own heart would be my own choice and whatever consequences shall be born by myself but, I cannot once again and again and again be responsible for breaking yours.

It is really difficult to imagine that we were once strangers then friends then close friends then inseparable best friends and then finally, back to strangers again. We both knew each other inside out. We were there for each other during the best of times and through the most difficult of times. You never failed to give me your wise words and I never failed to support your every decision made.

I will certainly not forget you because forgetting you would be like forgetting myself which is impossible. However, maybe you are right. We are better off as far apart as possible.

I remember you once wished me the best in my life and that was how we cut our ties. I realised I had never wished you before.

Saw you jumped into another relationship which, fortunately, is the last relationship you will ever have. Happily married with a beautiful wife and now a blessed father with an adorable child. So all I can do is wish you the best – a great, bright and loving future. 

I am happy you found a friend as great as me, but a much better partner. One who does not drag you through the mud. I wish you all the best and although you will never read this, although we will never speak to each other again, and although you are out of my life forever, I wish you nothing short of happiness.  

Your long lost best friend.
