Why are we apart?

Dear (name),

I’ve been trying to find the courage to write to you. For a long time now, I’ve been trying to understand the reason why we became so distant, we of all people, who always hanged out together, who were always in the same boat, both in the moments of joy and of grief…
You’ve never hurt me and I, for one, don’t think I have said anything that might have offended or hurt you.
This is a very awkward and uncomfortable situation for me because I care about you a lot. And yet, now when we bump into each other we never talk anymore… it’s so strange! What happen, do you know? I’ve tried to find out why, to analyze anything thing that might have been the motif that set us apart, but I couldn’t find any plausible reason.
I remembered your birthday, you know, and thought of giving you a call; but I was afraid that I would find a cold voice on the other side of the line and that you couldn’t even remember the friendly, happy moments we enjoyed together anymore.
What I really want to say is that I miss those times of close friendship. I would like things to go back to the way they were before and that we could restart that healthy and beautiful relationship. Why don’t you give me a call or even a hug next time we meet on the street?

Missing you
