We don’t talk much anymore, but he was the one who picked me up when I thought I wasn’t worthy of being loved anymore. He saw me when I was trying to hide in the dark. When I was so so scared of the world, he helped me open my eyes to see the world in a different way – to see a world filled with love. He helped me become braver and to stand up for my own choices. He showed me how it is to be loved, and how it feels to truly love.
We used to spend so much time talking over coffee, and those were truly the best moments I had with him. Things may have changed, but a cup of tea or coffee always brings me back to those beautiful memories, and I suddenly remember the world filled with the love that he never failed to show me. I may now be drinking my tea alone, but one more thing he taught me was how to love myself more, and knowing that I am doing it, even without him, brings peace to my heart.
