We’ve known each other for so long but we’ve been so far apart. I knew we had a special relationship when our paths crossed so long ago. I don’t know why it has taken me this long to finally embrace you in this way. We have shared so much through the years. We’ve laughed together, cried together, loved together and lost together. Yet, despite all that we’ve shared, I still feared you. I feared being seen with you and exposed by you. The very thought of being with you absolutely terrified me. But now I am ready. Ready to share a more intimate bond with you. Ready to face the world together and bare all. Now I am ready to take the plunge and reveal who I am, through you. Thank you for being with me.
