A Letter By Candlelight.

by ABake   Jul 3, 2009


Tonight, I had the idea to write you a letter by candlelight. There is a sweet vanilla aroma encircling my room and I miss you. After many failed attempts at starting this letter, I decided on "Hello love of mine..." I took my time writing every individual letter with a little extra love. I recall telling you, time spent on you will never be considered time wasted for me.

Today was a long day for me, a lot of running and not enough time. I heard your voice very little although it seemed to be on repeat in my head- oh how I wish I could've handed you this letter today. I would of kissed your sweet lips gently and smiled a smile I know you would love. Instead, I wrote it by candlelight then tucked it away for another day.

Times are getting rough, for both you and I. We are making it through though; sometimes I think we have no other option. I still write slowly, if not slower than before. I smile and look at our picture hanging on the wall, the flicker of the candle flame adds a beautiful effect. And I've realized just how proud I am.

My letter is almost finished and I end it with a kiss- my last words are "I love you so much & no one can ever take your place." I spray the paper with your favorite perfume of mine and seal the envelope tightly. I blow the candle out and whisper goodnight to the telephone. Another day has passed and brought us closer to the future.

    *Continue being proud! :) I like the word flicker btw. It's nice you were able to use it in a way that it would sound sooooooooo right.
