For Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. We are both on separate journeys; yet, you will always be within me: Thank you for the good times, for the hard times, for the laughter and the tears.
Not within the constructs of anything resembling conventionality. And I thank you because I know in those moments, you were happy, too. Those coffees led to a strong friendship; love; marriage; travel; multiple moves to many countries on four continents; a beautiful, fierce daughter; a painful separation; getting back together and trying again; and then I saw you through the large window, sitting calmly in your independence, your head gently bent over a book on global issues.
Thank you for teaching me about mosquitoes, parasitoid wasps, malaria, dengue, the Amazon, adventure. Thank you for loving me in your ways. By letting you go, I have reclaimed part of myself, a freedom. I went along with the status quo of what life is supposed to look like and what couples are supposed to do and do next.
I kept being me and attempted to hold it all with both palms open and my heart wide, but cracking, because neither of us could keep the opposing, pulling sides -- forever. You were patient and you believed, and for that, I thank you. Thank you for asking me to marry you on that bench with the lamppost.
Thank you for asking me to let you go. You tried to swallow them -- all those words whole. Someone said to me, when are you going to get a boyfriend. That was attractive to me. Thank you for really deciding who you need to be and saying so. Neither of us is.
You said you were taken in by my smile. For pulling me out of my literary snobbery. I thank you for the laughter we always shared and for the memories we created in our short time as a couple and our even longer friendship.
I knew the stories you shared were a cover for something deeper; of course, your wild tales would usually work as a great introduction, a type of foreplay Maybe I will get one, and then you came along.
My life is richer. I value my independence above all else. You tried to be one kind of man and then another kind of man and tried to make sense of it.
This girl will have -- has had already -- an unconventional life. I gave you mine. That keeps us friends. I knew you meant it then.
You taught me that even good marriages can fade into nothing and you taught me to be more careful with my heart in the future. I wish you all the happiness in the world with wherever your journey takes you next on your path to find your soul mate.
Not to say that we were conventional. You felt disarmed that I could see beneath the layers and scratch under your veneer. I know what I asked of the Universe was given to me. I owe part of the woman I am now to you. I have learnt so many lessons along our journey together, falling apart and our divorce and finding me again, a better version of me.
Lastly, you taught me that sometimes even the strongest fires burn out. I know our relationship definitely had a purpose and that our time together was just over.
