There was a hello. Shy conversations of getting to know someone, many nerves and anxious feelings. They turned into kisses, torn down walls and falling in love.
There was a relationship. A beautiful one. One full of love and promises, fights and make-ups. Getting to know someone more and more each day, understanding and anticipating reactions.
There was a goodbye. One that took months to process, accept and let go.
In between the hello and goodbye was so much love, but somehow it changed and got lost along the way. Hurt feelings and flaws stepped in and destroyed something meaningful. Moving on is painful and it takes time, but it doesn’t invalidate the time between the hello and the goodbye. It doesn’t invalidate the feelings, no matter what happens from here on out.
