I meant this awhile ago, but didn’t think to write it.


Dear Nicholas,

I wouldn’t take any of it back, you know.

I mean, sure, I lost a dog, some nights of sleep and all the power tools. 

But I gained streamers on my bike handles, a confidence in my own voice, and the reminder that our lives really are what we make them.  Oh, and a friend, too.

Nothing very bad can happen to you when you live with people you love, and that includes breakups.

Love, Sarah

There’s one thing I want to say

So I’ll be brave

You were what I wanted

I gave what I gave

I’m not sorry I met you

I’m not sorry it’s over

I’m not sorry there’s nothing to say

I’m not sorry

There’s nothing to say.

  1. This makes me wish that I was a guy and we had just broken up. Nick, you are so lucky to have someone like Sarah in your life. And Sarah, it’s obvious that you know how lucky you are.
