For years, we have loved each other whole-heartedly and unconditionally and we were always keen on growing old with each other. Although, I still want to grow old with her, with her memories and with all the moments we had shared but would I be able to live like this; would I be able to live a life she would have wanted me to live if she was still with me?
I know the answer is no and even though I love her so much and my life is incomplete without her, I have decided to let her go after crying every night for three years following her departure from this world.
I throw the bottle as far as I can in the boundless sea, a bottle that contains my final message for her, a message that says that I love her and will always do and just for the sake of that love, I will live and continue with the dreams we had seen together.
It finally relieves me a bit and I let go of the tears that escape my eyes and run down my cheeks as I see the bottle floating and drifting gradually towards the horizon that assures me that someday in some life I will meet her again and then, I will be able to hold her in my arms the whole of my life.
