To The Woman Who Has The Man I Used To Love


To the woman who has the man I used to love, please give him the love I can no longer save." -Bea C. Pilotin

Yes, it's true he loved me. I was once his Princess, not so long ago. That was before. Since you came into his life, he changed his mind; he gave up on me and I was totally removed from the equation. He didn't love me anymore, that's true. Only then that I have realized I am not the only living species on this paradise and hell-like planet; that I am not the only one breathing every ounce of air; feeling every ray of the sun and drinking every drop of water. I am not alone; that there is somebody out there- better! I have asked myself why do the shattered trees shriveled when they have so much love to give? Why do the dying flower wilt when they have so much scents to bring? Why it has to be that every beautiful thing has to die when there are so much reasons to live? Ah, there are things in life that defy explanations and it's difficult to live with them.

I kept this swell of loneliness and despondency to him. But it's something I could no longer hide. Each night, the tears overflow and the happy memories come parading, grandly marching before my eyes. The bitter tears gushed out everytime. He shoved me away because of you; because you belong to him. I know that life has been full of rules, values and expectations. For sometime now, I have realized that I do not deserve the love of a man who belongs to a high standard of living. I know that I have failed to live up to his expectations and in many consequential matters dear to a man of his station in life, I may have indeed let him down.The circle would close soon, I know. And I'm no longer lucky enough to touch the warmth of its circumference.

If you will ask me if I still love him. Yes, I do. The kind of love that is beyond measure. It goes deeper than the abyss of the ocean. It rises higher than the tallest mountain and stretches beyond the farthest sea. It goes beyond the limit. It goes high as the blue sky and reaches to the burning rays of the golden sun. It surpasses the counting of infinite numbers. Immeasurable as they said!

And here's my simple message: Please take care of him for me. Love him as I do. Give him the love I can no longer save. Don't tell him that my heart is breaking because I don't want him to know. Take the step that both of you want to. But let me live with my own dreams. I know that I will never forget the memories of a thousand and one days we shared together and will forever haunt me for the rest of my lifetime.

Let him forget me but please grant me this: Give him the love I can no longer save. Let me love him from the distance. Let me dream of what could have been. And now that he found happiness in your arms, let me dream, too, that he is in mine.
