    Dear Tim,

    I’m letting go now; I’m hoping you won’t be mad. I promise to hold on and cherish all the good times that we had. I miss the taste of your flesh, the pleasant smell of your skin, the pureness of your soul, the cosmic vibes you’d send. I miss the grasp of your hand, the fullness of your lips, the shining of your eyes, the rhythm of your hips. I miss the rush of being alone, only me and you. I miss doing the things only married people do. I miss everything about you especially my single red rose, I know you understand what I’m saying nobody else really knows. You were my soul mate, my lover, my very best friend; my heart, my soul, and my river with no end. You were the answer to my problems, my everlasting goal. The ring on my left finger always would let people know, that I was your wife; taken and they had no chance. I would never disrespect you not even one mere dance. As I said in the beginning I’m finally letting go, I hope your understand the reasons why I have to let you know. I’ve finally took of the ring and I’ve went out a time or two, and I’m starting to do some stuff that single people do. I kiss Tia for you each and everyday, I started going to church and even started to pray. I wish you were here to see her and how much she’s grown, I tell her things about you to make sure your memory is known. I luv you so much Tim, yeah this you already know, I just want you to remember those three words because I’m finally letting go.
