I once wrote you a letter and you never replied, which makes me wonder if you ever received it. This time it’s a more personal delivery – and I need a reply, even if it’s not the one I want.I’m listening to you – I can hear every word, however softly you speak – and I’m half-agony, half-hope. You’re saying that men are realists – that, when the woman they love is no longer available, they move on. Well, believe me, I tried – and I thought I had. But seeing you again, after so many years, just proved how little I knew…You told me to trust myself. So here I am back in Bath, putting everything on the line for a second chance with you. Is that what you want, too? Whatever your answer, remember this: I may not deserve you – when I think of how I’ve behaved, I know I’ve shown little self-control and even less forgiveness – but I’ve never stopped loving you.You’re talking about heartless men… But I have a heart, and it’s the same one you almost broke ten years ago, and it belongs to you, and only you, even more than it did then. And yes, I’m a realist: if you no longer love me, I will accept it. But don’t say that only a woman can keep on loving someone who’s no longer part of her life! Because I will keep on loving you until there are no stars in the sky.Tell me tonight how you feel. If there’s any chance of you loving me back, then I’ll wait for you as I should have waited before. If not, say the word and I’ll leave you in peace. But I’ll never forget you, or what we had, or what might have been. Rick
