A single red rose

‘I wrote you this letter but I guess it would be better if I just read it to you’ I began.
‘Our time together was the happiest in my life except there at the end. It’s time I moved on now. And I hope you can forgive me for any pain I have caused you.’ I whispered to her.
I slowly looked around as I wiped a tear from my cheek, the sun was bright and the sky
was clear and a slight breeze rustled the leaves on the trees.
‘I just have to let you go and move on but it’s not that easy. You have been a part of my life for five years now and it is hard to just say goodbye.’
In the distance I could hear traffic and the sounds of children playing.
‘I feel like life has passed me by and I need to catch up to it. And I can not do that when all I want is to be with you. You will always be my love and I hope when you see me you will be happy about how I have moved on. I love you.’

I laid the note and a single red rose on her headstone and walked slowly away.
