I’d Give Our Friendship Another Try, K

Hi K,

You were one of the first friends I made when I transferred schools. I can’t remember exactly how we became friends or who approached who first. I only remember us being classmates. The next thing I knew, I was inviting you to my birthday parties, and you’d invite me over to your house – just two kids having the time of our lives.

Those days at your place are the fondest memories I’ll always have. Whenever I’d pass by that property, no matter what business or family had taken over, all I ever saw was us having fun doing whatever it was that kept us happy and full of laughter.

One of the things I loved about you was how down-to-earth you were no matter how fortunate your life was. You were thoughtful, kind, and just the sweetest soul.

I was strongly affected and upset when we had separate classes in the 5th grade. I felt like we would begin to drift apart and you would forget about me.

Thankfully, we pulled through that school year. Our 6th-grade year came around, but I think that was when we were beginning to fall apart. I struggle to remember any memory together for that school year.

Junior high came and I thought we would get to become classmates again, but because our birthdays were far apart, we were put on different teams for both years.

Eventually, our days out of school hangouts became weekly to monthly hellos in the hallways.

Though I was hurt, I never blamed you. It was hard for me to do so when you gave me some of the most cherished years of my adolescent years.

I guess that’s why if we were given a second chance, I’d give our friendship another try, K.

I would love to hear about all the adventures you experienced during the years we lost contact. How is your family doing? The last time we hung out, your younger sister was merely a year old, so I’d be excited to see how much she’s grown.

I miss you a lot, K.

Somehow I still feel at peace even when we’d lost touch, and I feel excited thinking about any reunion we’d have in the future. What do you think would have happened if we remained close? My answer – I honestly don’t have a clue. I mean, when we were childhood BFFs, we were just enjoying each day as they passed. I never knew how you faired through the years of finding yourself and following your passion.

But, I do hope that most of your days were, and still are, spent with smiles, laughter, and genuine love for yourself and those around you.

If there was one thing you excelled at, it was going above and beyond expectations and giving your all towards everything thrown at you.

You were always the braver one of the both of us. And I am forever grateful for having someone like you that I looked up to. You motivated me when I was down and pushed me to do my best all the time.

Thank you for being you and for coming into my life when you did.

Let’s catch up soon!
