My dearest Allie
I don’t know what to say anymore except that I couldn’t sleep
last night because I knew that it is over between us.
It is a different feeling for me, one that I never expected,
but looking back, I suppose it couldn’t have ended another way.
You and I were different. We came from different worlds,
and yet you were the one who taught me the value of love.
You showed me what it was like to care for another, and I
am a better person because of it. I don’t want you to ever
I am not bitter because of what has happened. On the contrary.
I am secure in knowing what we had was real, and I am happy
we were able to come together for even a short period of time.
And, if in some distant place in the future, we see each other in our new lives,
I will smile at you with joy, remembering
how we spent a season beneath the stars, learning from each
other and growing in love.
And maybe, for a brief moment, you’ll feel it too, and you’ll smile back,
and savor the memories we will always share together
I love you,
It’s a little different in the movie though.
