“We all have that one person whom we love so much but chose not to tell them.”
Yes we do. We believe it is the best. And so far it is.
Even if at the beginning we experience heartaches as we try to let our feelings go without letting go of the person. If we can tear our soul apart, this must be how it felt.
This person is part of our everyfay life. Everyday is a chance to let them know or let them feel we love them but we choose to limit ourselves instead. There is so much we can do, but our fear that they might know scares the crap out of us. Stopping yourself what you want to do the most is like strangling your heart and slowly killing yourself.
We want to make this person happy, smile or feel better in general. We try to make them laugh at the expense of embarassing ourselves in front of this person. We try our best to lift their spirits up at the expense of our time. We put everything aside when they need help or ask for a favor. We encourage them to become the best that they can be.
When they have problems in love. It felt like salt rubbed in our wounds yet we advise them to continue pursuing “the one” they are looking for. Because the sight of their happiness, nulls the pain of knowing they can’t be with us.
But this is how it is meant to be.
This is unconditional love. Loving someone without expecting -anything in return.
We chose not to tell. Because clearly there is no point in telling. We don’t want to tell this person in the hope that when they find out we love them they will see the sincerity behind it. They will know we love them not because they saw or heard it but because they felt it. They will feel it when we’re gone and they will long for it.
P.S. If ever you are reading this, I didn’t mean observe or tease you. It just reminded me of something and someone in the past. I know how it felt like, and certainly I won’t compromise it.
