I was in a thrift shop today and I pulled a book off the shelf. Inside was a love letter from 1998 and this is what it said:
How are you today, love? I called you up tonight, forgetting that you had gone to NY to look at those schools. I was really looking forward to talking to you so it was hard when I realized that I couldn’t hear your voice for days. :( I miss you immensely, hon. This past weekend once again reminded me what an important part of my life you are. It really is tough being away from your best friend, but I’m sure you already know that.
Right now is one of those times where I am lying on my bed, dreaming of you in my arms. There is nothing that makes me feel as comfortable, warm, happy, safe, and loved as when I am close to you. I would give anything to you here right now. I miss you, Aim! Last weekend was great because I got to be with you lots. Your presence alone makes me unbelievably happy. Just thinking about you brings a smile to my face. I am so lucky to have found such a wonderful companion.
I hope that you are having fun at Hofstra and Manhattan and that the time spent its your parents is not too unbearable for you. It is somewhat comforting to think that you are close by. The consolation is small, however, as I am not able to see you or speak to you. I cannot wait until we are together for real…none of this 3-day crap. Together forever…that just seems the way that it should be.
Well, my dear, it is getting late (12:15) and I have class bright and early tomorrow. I had better get some sleep. I hope to hear from you soon. That will make it easier to deal with being without you. You are my world, Amy. I love you,
