If I understood you then how I understand you now; things would’ve been better.
Life has taught me many lessons, of which you were the greatest. It has taken me years… but now I know. What wasn’t then, should have been now. But it isn’t; and it never will be.
One day when I finally settle down, I’ll look back on my life and everything that I’ve been through. From childhood to my teenage years, off into adulthood and becoming a parent (perhaps). Yet right in the middle… There you’ll be. It kills me that you’ve still got a firm grasp on my heart, despite my attempts at using logic to loosen your chains. But of course; it must be that damn witchcraft of yours.
My memory isn’t the best these days, yet I’m sure it’ll be your 25th tomorrow. So… Happy birthday, T.
