My Story

This is a real letter I wrote to my handsome and amazing fiance while he was in surgery in Afghan after being badly injured. He made it home. And he died earlier today. I decided to share this so that the world would see how much I loved Patrick, and how I wish he was still here. So there are parts of this that aren't really M/G relevant, but I don't want to go edit it all again.

So this is from me to Patrick. Happy anniversary handsome. I already miss you. 28/12/87 - 17/06/12


You know, the day we met I couldn't imagine being with you, but within a few days, I couldn't imagine being without you, and right now I don't know if I'm going to spend my life with you or not. I know they always say that when you find love you know it's right, and you've made me realise that's true.

You've told me so many times when you fell for me. The first time I called you handsome. That was about a week after we met. I've called you so many other nicknames over the time we've had together, but somehow, that one stuck, and it's true.

From when we first met we had an instant bond, and we talked every day, about everything. Big and small. Feelings about everything, anything. You told me all about Z, and your friends and family. I felt like I knew them a long time before I spoke to any of them.

I knew I loved you about a month after we met. That was all it took.

We waited too long to admit it.

You know every conversation we had, even when we fought, was worth so much, and will always stand out in my memory. Every silly story and "I love you" you told me. They all proved to me that you were my amazing man.

I don't know how to cope without you, and facing this, losing you, it's too hard for me to even think about.

I just want to hear you say "Hey Beautiful" again.

One day, not so long ago, you promised me that you wouldn't break my heart, but sometimes things happen that we can't explain or even accept, and that makes it even harder to understand everything that's happening to us.

When you proposed, you told me that there would only be one thing you'd regret, and that would be not asking me to marry you. How could a girl say no to that. To someone who she adores saying that he wanted her to be his forever.

We planned everything. Where we'd live, how many children we'd have, our wedding parties. Our song. Everything was planned down to the last letter. We had a life planned.

We only admitted our feelings because you were hurt before. This time I don't have to pretend I'm only concerned as your friend. This time I can be the concerned fiancée. The woman who wants to spend her entire life with you, who wants to have children and live and grow old together.

Nothing is going to be the same if you're gone.

I love you, so much it hurts to breathe without you.

So please come back to me.

Love you, until the end of time
