I couldn’t help but notice how nice your hair smelled today. It was so beautiful in the sunshine, it took all of my self-control to not run my fingers through it. I also couldn’t help but notice that you had lunch with that man again, I thought that my previous letters would have alerted you to how disastrous a relationship with this person might be, surely he could not love you as much as I do, but that is beside the point, I am sure you will realize that I am right on this point. Have you told him about me? Silly me, asking such questions, he would know better than to intrude on our relationship.
I have been trying to decide what I would get you for your birthday this year. I never see you wearing the earings that I bought you last year. I have been trying to think of something more personal, something that you can cherish, something to remind you of my love.
The first time we met my life changed. You were so young and beautiful. You were wearing that little pink sweater. I remember how pretty your hair was in that ponytail, I thought it a shame that you cut it all off. I know you didn’t mean it to be hurtful to me, after all, I did say how much I liked it. I am glad that you are growing it out again. It’s much better looking when it is long. It would have looked so beautiful streaming down your back at graduation. But that was a long time ago, I barely knew you then, not like now.
I hate to keep harping on about it, but that man you had lunch with… he is so much like that boy you were dating back then. Richard something or other. I tried to warn you about him. You wouldn’t listen then either, I don’t know if you know, but I finally had to talk to him, I mean, really, even then you knew that we were destined to be together. I know you had to have your fun, but he was getting a little too serious, he thought he could steal you from me. I hope this one doesn’t make the same mistake. Richard whatshisface just wouldn’t believe me when I told him you were mine. Even after you moved away, I knew you were getting away from him, you knew that I would find you, no matter where you went. The connection between us is too strong to ever be broken by miles. Richard didn’t have that connection with you.
Anyway, that’s all in the past. We are the future. I should go now, I will see you soon anyway, but I wanted to tell you that I love you and think of you always.
Love and Devotion,
Your Secret Admirer
