Platonic Love Letter #5

Dear A. S.,

We cried over a tree and believe me, in that moment I knew this love would be forever. We’d always said friends forever, but that moment was my validation. Were we really crying over the loss of the tree or our own growth? We had shared so many memories under that tree, but never again would we share one there. I don’t think we would have because we had already moved from the tree, but with it being cut down we had no way to try.

Our realization of the missing tree was also prefect timing. Summer after graduation. We’d all be going on to do bigger better things, with our friendship on the line. As the years have passed from that moment I know that no distance can break our friendship. I will always love you.

Platonic Love Letter #4

Dear K. B.,

I love you to the moon and back, and I always will. There is so much I would like to say to you but there aren’t enough loving words in the dictionary to express it. We have been through so much and our friendship has grown so. There are things I would never know about the world or about myself if we had never been friends.

And yet there are some things I fear to tell you, even though I tell you most everything. You are so kind and understanding. You have an open mind and an open heart, but I fear that one wrong step on my part will leave us split and broken. I know deep down that this will never happen and that this fear is irrational, but so are most fears and so it remains.

C. L. S.
