“I was foolish and juvenile and blind and oblivious. But none will qualify as excuses, so I apologize. I apologize for not realizing that you were the one. I apologize for letting my mind take over my heart, which covertly yearned for you. I apologize for letting my trust issues stop me from embracing you. I apologize for realizing how terribly I craved you only once I had lost you. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I’d ask you to forgive me, but I’ve learnt to stop asking for such impossible favors.
(I yearn for your presence, all day, every day. Please come back, so I can hold you in my arms—forever.)”
