I didn’t think that saying goodbye to you would happen via text. But it just makes me realize that maybe you didn’t care about our friendship as much as I did.
But maybe you do. I just wish I got to say goodbye to you since I won’t be seeing you until next February. We’ve become really good friends, and not having you around kind of hurts. I loved spending nights with you and waking up to you. I loved telling you personal things, and hearing you tell me all about fitness and being healthy. Being around you comforts me and puts me at ease.
You’re a marvelous person, and I wish you’d see that. I’m sorry I might have bruised our friendship. I’m just afraid of never seeing you again..
