I did let go but only to make the fight worth while and to see with open eyes and what I saw was love and better than it could ever be and I think that is the real courage to be able to let go.. and see if you see what you really saw was there in the beginning and if it is still there. I saw it to be there and I love him to the fullest.
Truth is, he won't be the same person and neither will I. We will both change. What I REALLY want is to cherish and love my partner through all the changes: for better, for worse, in sickness and in health, all the days of our lives. That way, it won't matter where he is, he'll be loved.
