Final Goodbye

Hey,

You’re my best friend. I can’t believe you’re leaving. Don’t think that I’m mad, because I’m not. Not mad… just sad. You are the one I know that I can always count on. The one who I can text even when he’s in the middle of the Caribbean and I know he will answer. You’re the one who makes me feel better when I feel like I’m not good enough. You are the one who makes me smile, and sing, and laugh… and in this instance, cry. I never thought I would have to go through a school day without seeing you. I never thought that the last time I saw you would be today. I never thought that when you left it would be to go to a different school, practically a world away. I never imagined that you would leave. I know I’m being a total masochist writing this, because it hurts too bad. You are my friend, my confidante, my buddy, mi amigo and compadre. You have put up with me for almost two years, I never thought that you would stop. I always thought that you would be there, be here. I never ever thought you would leave or have to go. I know that you feel bad that you have to go, but you shouldn’t. You should be happy to know that you are smart enough to get into the smart boy school. Sure, it’d breaking my heart to have to watch you go, but it’s… I don’t want to say the right thing to do, but it is. There are so many things I wish I could have told you. And now you’re off on your way to the rest of your life. And you deserve that. You’re my best friend and you make me so happy, but you need to be happy too. I always want what’s best for you, because you matter to me too much to see you upset. What I really want to do is to go and have someone take your school and plop it in the middle of nowhere so that you have to stray here. But what I’m really going to do, is nothing. I couldn’t ruin something like this for you. I probably won’t even give you this letter. You’re going to become a legend there, I know it. And you won’t remember us at all. I love you like the cool brother I didn’t get to have,




Meg

I have to say. You have an extreme talent for writing. You have this ability to connect with human emotions that I have never seen before. Teen Ink has issues. They aren't putting your work in their magazine..
