Dear the one who will come after I’m gone,
If you want her you need to be patient. You need to have all the time in the world to wait, to wait, to wait. It might take you a day, a year or 10 but you wait. She is not easy to please, she has her own world, she is the universe itself so you have to be something else to please the universe.
See I was impatient, I was like Orpheus, I looked too soon and Eurydice is gone forever. Don’t be like me, but I was good with warmth and I want to believe that, perhaps my blanketed words was the reason she even acknowledges my existence.
Anyway, I will keep it as short as I could because when it comes down to her, it is never short nor simple, never easy. It’s like if you fall, make sure you are not falling during Autumn because you will be competing with the leaves.
So, be patient but that doesn’t mean you would ever win her. I think you would only ever be victorious when she chose you. See, she is the moon, all of us will howl for her but it will always be up to her to choose.
There’s so much to say, so much. But you will get it when you are filling my shoes and feeling my grief. The sorrow of not knowing, things about her that you will not understand how they made you feel, that kind of ache.
Good luck, my time is up. Either to be tear by a beast or by Zeus’ lightning – I am quite ready to be out of this world.
All my best,
The one before you came along,
