Several years ago, just after we first met, you offered to tutor me in your native language. At the time, I told you that I had the need to learn a different language. I think about that moment and of what I missed. I would’ve gazed into your beautiful eyes, heard your voice in my ears, mind and heart and breathed your breath”¦Since then, due to my clumsiness, there has been (until very recently) mostly silence. You obviously have had things on your mind and I know you’ve been discouraged. I wish I could have helped or at least had the courage to somehow tell you how I felt. The mere chance of seeing you or just hearing your voice thrills me. For a long time, I’ve had only my dreams. And in my dreams I have kissed your hand a thousand times. But now, the cold final realization that I will never know more of you creates sadness in me that I have never known. I am incomplete. I just wanted you to know that I wish for you everything you could wish for yourself. I wish for you a love that exceeds anything you’ve known or imagined possible. I wish for you a long and healthy life with every challenge conquered and every adventure lived. I wish you knew what I feel when I hear your name or when you speak mine. The light in your eyes makes me tremble. To know such a beautiful, graceful creation walks the surface of this scarred and troubled world gives me hope. For I have seen Perfection and, she smiled at me.
