I don’t want to remember you as someone who hurt me.
I don’t want to remember you as someone who could not return the love I have always been selflessly giving.
I don’t want to remember you as someone who left without farewell.
I don’t want to remember you as someone I did not end up with.
I want to remember you as one of the best things that ever happened to me.
I want to remember you as someone who made me feel a love that is genuine and real.
I want to remember you as someone who taught me how to love God more than anything and anyone.
I want to remember you as someone who always believed that everything is possible.
I was being honest when I told you that you were one of the most wonderful people I’ve ever met. My heart rejoiced when it felt the love for you. You helped me realise a lot of things I did not believe in before. It was beautiful how you taught me to believe that real love can also be found in a person, not just in God alone. You showed me what true faith is. I will never forget the feeling I had when I was witnessing you chasing after your dreams and everything God desires for you. It was fulfilling. It was pure joy.
I never wanted to see us in this situation – apart and pursuing different roads. But it is still beautiful how I can still feel the love even from a distance. I can still see you resting in the peace God gives. It is still comforting to know how faithful you still are in every season that we are apart. I can still rejoice, knowing that all this time that we are not together is a season of us continuing to abide in obedience to God while constantly depending on His grace to make us grow individually while waiting to get to the road that will lead us to where we are destined to be.
I do not regret leaving you – if it means walking on the path towards the will of God.
I do not regret losing you – if it means we will be able to meet again soon, in the right season.
I do not regret listening to God before my heart – if it means going through life with the confidence that He orchestrates everything to work together for our good.
