A Letter to childhood BFF

Dear Better-Half

Can you believe its been 7 years since we’ve seen each other and 8 years since that fateful year when our friendship dwindled into nothingness? I don’t know if you remember but you were my first, I was never a BFF kinda girl before  I met you.

My memory isn’t usually so good but I have such vivid memories of you. I can’t quite make out how we started being friends but I remember when we first met. I suppose that was too big a day for me to forget, my first day in boarding school. I remember noticing you walk in and fill the room with your presence. You had this unnaturally straight and full hair and eyes too big for your tiny face.

We were such opposites yet so similar you and me. You were this tall, dark girl who seemed to know her place in the world, whilst  I was short, light complexioned and unsure of myself. How did we get to the place where we knew the beat of each other’s heart? & worse yet how did we go from there to nothing in what seems to have been the blink of an eye?

I don’t know where you are now or how life is unfolding for you but  I am praying for you! Entrusting your life into the hands of One who never fails.
