A Letter’s Purpose Can Be As Simple As “Thank You For Being My Friend”

This letter arrived with no explanation in my IN BOX.  What I took away from reading this is that a letter can heal the writer whether the recipient receives it or not.  Please read on (names have been changed):

Dear Sunitha,

This is the first letter I can remember writing to you. Obviously, I don’t know if I wrote any before. But, even if it’s not my first, it’s likely to be my last for you.

I remember the first time you came up in my college. We’ve been friends for God-knows-how-long, and you’re always there for me. Thank you so much for the love and care. I may not be the best ‘best friend’, but you will always be mean a lot to me.

Remember that when anything happens in college I instantly think, “oh I can’t wait to tell you about this.” You are in my mind 24/7 every hour of the day. I have gone like so many days right now without talking to you and it is killing me.There is only one thing in this world I have really not told you about and it is that without you I feel like no one, like I should not exist on this world.

Even if we live a thousand lives, I will always pick you as my beloved best friend.

If I could do it all over again, I would. And I wouldn’t change a thing.

My hope for you is when you’re looking back, years from now, you’ll be able to say the same.

Our path is separate now, Sunitha. And I know you’ll find a way to do what’s right. You always have.

Take care of everyone for me. And take care of yourself. You deserve to be happy.

Thank you for being my friend.

Goodbye, mate.
