Dearest L,
⠀⠀
It was never my intention to let you down or hurt you. I just needed more time, which you denied me. I will not defend myself for I know how much pain and suffering I caused you. After the war, everything has changed. I saw lovers torn apart by walls and bullets, which makes our history seem so small in comparison. We are both alive as I write this letter which may not be true tomorrow, so please do not waste the time we have left. I sincerely hope you can forgive me, but more importantly forgive yourself for not knowing better when you couldn’t have.
⠀⠀
Yours,
S
