It rained last night. And this morning too. It looks like it’s going to rain some more later. It’s cold outside but not as cold as you. It keeps on raining; it’s comforting. It’s like the heaven is crying for me. It’s crying the tears that I can’t cry. Because I no longer want to waste them for you.
Winter. The season that I have been waiting for. The season that officially marks an end to my “summertime sadness”. I am letting the rain wash away the pain of yesterday. I am moving forward. With my head held high, with no regrets, just faith, hope and love. I’d like to view it this way: God saved me from future heartbreaks. God saved me from what I thought was right for me but actually not. God loves me enough to spare me from another season of sleepless nights and chaotic thoughts.
Thank you for making me feel that I am not good enough. I realized that I will always be good enough for the right person.
Thank you for overlooking me all the time. I learned to see my own goodness and appreciate my own self.
Thank you for the heartbreak. I learned how to make myself whole again.
Thank you for the heartache. I finally know my worth.
Thank you for the pain. I am now stronger that I have ever been before.
Thank you for not loving me back. I realized that you are outnumbered by the people who love me.
Thank you for the tear stains on my pillow. They are signs that what I felt was true.
Thank you for pushing me away. Who knows, maybe I was pushed towards the person who will pull me in someday.
Thank you for preparing me for the person that I will be with in God’s perfect time. I will forever thank you for all the realizations and for making me the woman I am today. The woman who will someday be loved wholeheartedly by someone that God chose for her. The woman who has so much love to give. The woman who lost her breath running after you is now gone. I am now the woman who finally had the courage to walk away and to welcome the hope the winter season brings.
Winter. It’s gonna be one long and cold season. But, at least, it would numb the pain until I don’t feel it anymore.
Thanks to you. I am always praying for you. Someday our paths will cross again. Winter, spring, summer or fall, I will always give you the sweetest smile of all. You are my lesson learned. My realization. My metanoia. I hope you find the right kind of love that will make you forget all your fears and hesitations. I hope you find someone who will accept you for who you are. I hope someday someone would love you better. Because that’s what you deserve. Because that’s what you need. Because I’d be happy to see you with someone who loves you more than she could ever love anything and anyone. Because someday, I still want to see that smile of contentment on your face because finally love found its way to you. After all, you are still my friend.
I enjoyed the ride even if I was always in the backseat.
