Letters to Juliet

I watched a movie the other night called "Letters to Juliet". It is loosely based on a historic site in Verona Italy where people used to leave notes at Juliet's tomb back since the 19th century and later posted letters to Juliet from the 1930's onwards of their troubles and ask for advice. Eight years ago the "secretaries to Juliet" were set up where a group of women in various specialties would respond to these notes/letters. I found it fascinating that people still find comfort in writing to complete strangers of their thoughts and feelings even if no one ever reads it or responds to it. Some what like keeping a blog.

In this movie a letter was found 50 years later and was responded to. This lady named Claire came back to the place where it all began to find out what had happened to her long lost love that she left behind so that she could finally have closure. At the end of the movie the response letter was read out and I found it quite touching and it goes like this...

Dear Claire,

'What' and 'If' are two words as non-threatening as two words can be. But put them side by side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life. "What If" "What If" "What If". I don't know how your story ended but if what you felt then is true love, then it's never too late. If it was true then, then why wouldn't it be true now. You need only the courage to follow your heart.

I don't know what a love like Juliet's feels like. Love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for. But I'd like to believe that if I ever would feel it that I'd have the courage to cease it. And Claire, if you didn't, I hope one day that you will.

All my love,

In Silence

I didn't plan on having these feelings for you, it just sort of happened

How do you tell your heart to stop loving someone?

I wish I didn't feel this way it would be easier to forget

You hurt me so much through the years why can't I just hate you

There are days where I just feel lost

Stare into emptiness with sadness in my heart

Soulless, like I have no peace left in my heart
It feels like you took the sunshine and left me the rain

I miss you so much sometimes all I want to do is cry

It hurts so much I struggle to breathe
But I can't be seen to fall apart

Wait until I'm behind closed doors before I suffer in silence

As the days go by I don't feel you around me anymore

In my dreams I can't see your face, feel your touch

The memories are slowly fading

It scares me as that's all I have left of you

To My Dearest Friend

To My Dearest Friend,

I was the happiest when we were together
What I felt back then I can't seem to get back
It's not the same anymore, things are different now
Sometimes I see a stranger when I look into your eyes

Still I long for those endless summer nights with you
Watching the sunset and making love all night
Winter's come and brought the cold and the rain
We said goodbye again and I'm left with emptiness

For the longest time I thought that forever we would be
But now I finally have clarity
It took a long time but now I can finally see
That we're not meant to be

I was foolish to hold on to a love that did not exist
Only in my dreams you felt so real
A lone figure in my imagination of a promise of everlasting love
Still my heart keeps trying to hold on

To stop loving you is the hardest thing I've ever had to do
Let go, just let go is what I pray
I guess I'm down to one last cry
So that the next time I see you I don't have to pretend that I'm fine

Tomorrow is a new day
A new beginning
Goodbye my lover my dear friend
You will be in my heart until the end.

Love Always xxoo

Shooting Star

In my dreams we were like a "shooting star". Two stars collide at a moment in time, a beautiful sight, leaving a bright trail behind. Then in a flash, it was gone, just like that. A second it lasted, but forever it felt, with memories to last an eternity.
