I knew this day was coming, but I didn't know it would be so hard to say goodbye. I don't think I have ever cried as desperately as I did while in my car driving home at two last night. I didn't know sadness could be so loud.
But I also didn't know that happiness could be so real. I didn't know it was possible to fall in love again. You taught me what it means to be treated with kindness and respect. Never in my life have I been given so much careful attention. I understand now what I deserve and what I can expect. Thank you for teaching me those things.
I miss you, Peter.
