Day 207: Rain

Dear Rain,

I know I was mean before, asking you to go away and never come back. I know it was uncalled for, you were just doing your job, fulfilling your purpose. I’m sorry.

I’m glad to see that you’re back, especially after the heat wave. And you didn’t come alone, you brought wind with you. You’re both very welcome, as long as you don’t take the sun away.

I see all the great work you’re doing, watering my plants, fertilising the soil, enabling growth. Thank you so much. Please remember to fall only in moderation, and to give us the chance to miss you.

Thank you for reading.

Day 119: The Ex

Today’s task is to write a letter to an ex. I was very excited about this because I saw this as an opportunity to channel my inner Adele. No one writes about their ex like Adele. She has hits after hits of pure genius, from Hello to Rolling in the Deep, to Set Fire to the Rain to Someone like You. The list goes on.

So here goes.

Dear First Love,

That’s what you were, that’s what you are and that’s what you’ll always be.

I remember summers on the beach, we were so young, barely 18 when I first loved you. It was always there, at the back of my mind, but I never noticed until she wanted you too. It seems like forever ago, to be so young, so passionate, so jealous.

You remember how competitive I got? I always had to win, at sports, arguments, maths, and life. I hated losing, until I lost you. Well not really lost, more like let go, said my goodbye.

You remember how easy that was for you? Not so much for me, saying goodbye to 2 years of my life. I remember how angry I was, absolutely livid. I cried for days, weeks and months. I remember the day I finally stopped crying, March 3rd, forever my favourite day. It felt so good to finally be done with it all.

I remember the first time I saw you again. After everything, all the feelings came rushing by. I was blindsided, I didn’t know what I was suppose to do. All I knew was that I wanted us to be happy, apart.

I remember time went by and I saw you, standing by the bus stop as I drove by. I remember feeling so happy to see an old memory come to life. I remember driving by and hoping you didn’t see me.

I remember us as the beautiful memory that we were. Safely tucked away in the past, where it’s suppose to be. I remember wishing you a good life, love and happiness, as I do now.

Thank you for reading.

Day 13: The Letter Poem

Dear Lover,

Just 2 words written on a page

Brought my heart freedom from it’s cage

The day we met you had such charm

It caused me to step back in alarm

The smile you gave followed by the wink

Forced me to lose all ability to think

I knew I was yours the moment you said hello

I was ready for anything, and everything that followed.

Dear Lover,

My heart cannot sit still

Every moment with you has been nothing but a thrill

Remember when we took our first trip to South of France

And stood under the moon and had our first dance

Remember the sand that followed us to bed

And you looked into my eyes after all that was said

You told me you loved me, till death do us part

And I said, I do, offering you my heart.

Dear Lover,

With all these years, not a thing has changed

Not a day goes by, that I don’t think it strange

That my love for you has never ceased

Through all the years, it has increased

Through fights and disagreements

And all the ragging seasons,

You are and will forever be,  my dear lover.
