Dear long lost best friend,
I know it's nobodies fault that we lost each other along the way. Things happen and time changes people. I know it's been a long time since we have seen each other, more or less spoken. It seems like we no longer know each other. It breaks my heart knowing that I'm writing you this letter about how much I miss you. But this is the heartbreak that hurts the most and I'm not sure I'll ever get over it. No matter how much life get's in the way I will always support you and cheer you on.
There are many things that I would like to tell you, but the biggest thing I want you to know is that I do miss you. Do you remember that time that we went sledding down the side on the mountain by my house? I remember it being so cold, I could barely feel my hands. I remember us sledding into the fence at the end of the hill and my mom freaking out if we got hurt. But we kept sliding down that hill until our hearts were satisfied. It's memories like this that make my heart yearn to be a kid again. The time was much more simple and we didn't have to face the troubles of our world.
When I was 12, I loved going to church because I couldn't wait to see you. I miss seeing you at church on Sunday mornings. I know you've got you're own life going on but this is the place I miss you the most. This is where we met and where we became best friends. We learned to sing in front of a crowd there, but now there's no more you and me. It's just me these days. I miss having someone to talk to about my life struggles. I miss spending the night with my best friend. I miss pool days. I miss when our lives were free of boys and we didn't have to worry if we brushed our hair.
I honestly don't know when we slipped away from each other. Maybe it was because I had gotten my first boyfriend. Maybe it was new friends. Maybe it was just our time. Whenever we did grow apart, I hope you knew how proud I was to be your friend. Time won't erase the friendship we had. I will always treasure it because growing up I will always remember you and all the fun we had. So, long lost best friend, I wish you the best. I will always love you.
