If I stop loving you
Shared by Diana Georgia
When I fell in love with you, I knew you were the one I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, and I could not imagine myself with somebody else. I never looked forward to the day I’d be falling out of love with you. I didn’t think it would be possible for me to live a life without you.
I think I was wrong, and you were right all along. It took me a long time to realize it. You used to tell me that you wished we both could live a hundred years together, so we would have more time to be with each other. You wished we were born in the same place at the same time because you thought that you had wasted twenty-two years of your life not being with me. But you also told me that you didn’t think I was capable of loving you forever. I didn’t believe you, and I wanted to prove you wrong. But now, I am failing myself…and most importantly, I am failing you. So I am writing this to you to ask for your forgiveness for my future fiasco.
I want you to forgive me if the day comes that I stop loving you. Forgive me if suddenly, I fall out of love and I don’t seem to care anymore. It doesn’t mean that because I am no longer in love with you, my love for you was never real. Forgive me if one day, you realize that I lied to you when I said I would never give up on you. I have always thought I was not capable of giving up most especially when it comes to you.
I want you to forgive me if one day, I stop waiting for you. You have always been on top of my priorities, and I hope you know how hard it is to wait for something and not be able to know how long it would take. Forgive me if I lose my patience and I am no longer able to give you the attention I used to shower you with.
Forgive me if I stop being the person you fell in love with. Forgive me if I cease to be that person who would give you the world and sacrifice everything for you. Forgive me if I wasn’t a perfect lover. Forgive me if I don’t stick to my words.
If one day, all these things I am telling you happen, I want you to know that I am not blaming you for anything. I want you to remember that I have loved you with all of my heart. I need you to understand that while some things last, there are still some that are bound to end. But despite everything, I want you to know that I do not regret falling in love with you.
So please forgive me if I stop loving you or if the day comes that my heart stops beating for you.
