I left New York feeling that I did the right thing. Before I left on the flight, he came running out of nowhere and to say his goodbye and how he was very happy to see me again. I went home and tried to forget about what happened in New York. I had to go on with my life. As the years went on, we wrote to each other about our lives and how we missed talking to each other.
On one occasion, he never wrote back even after a long time.
I got worried as I didn’t get any reply even after writing
six letters to him.

He told me about his divorce and why he hadn't written back for a long time. He cried until he ran out of tears. We finally went back to the house and we talked and laughed as we catch up on old times. Despite the good opportunity, I still couldn't tell him how I felt about him. In the days that followed, he had fun and forgot about his problems and his divorce. I fell in love with him again. When it was time for him to go back to New York, I went to see him off and cried. I hated to see him leave. He promised to see me every time he could get a vacation. I couldn't wait for him to come so I could be with him. We would always have fun when we were together.
One day he didn't show up like he said he would. I figured that he might have been busy. The days turned into months and I forgot all about it. Until one day, I got a call from a lawyer in New York. The lawyer said that he had died in a car accident on his way to the airport. It took a while for them to settle things before calling me. It broke my heart to hear the news. I was shocked to know what took place. I realized why he didn't show up on that day like he promised. I was heartbroken again. I cried tears of sadness and heartache that night. He was such a kind man and did not deserve to die so young.
I gathered my things and went to New York for the reading of his will. He left his inheritance to his family and his ex-wife. I met her for the first time since the wedding. She explained to me that he was a good man and provided for the family. However, he was always unhappy. She would try everything but she couldn't get him to be happy like the night at their wedding. When the will was read, I found out he had left me a diary. It was a diary of his life. I cried as it was given to me. I didn't know what to think of it. Why was this given to me? I took it and flew back to California. As I flew on the plane, I remembered the good times that we had together. I started reading the diary and what was written in it.

The diary started with an entry on the day we first met. I started
to cry as I read on. He had fallen in love with me on that day
I was heartbroken. However, he was too afraid to tell me how he
felt. That was why he kept quiet and listened to me instead. As
I continued reading through more entries, I realized he wanted
to tell me about how he felt many times but he was always too
afraid to say anything. He mentioned that he went to New York
and thought that he fell in love with another person. But the
happiest time he had in New York was seeing me and dancing with
me at the wedding. He said he imagined it was our wedding. His
later entries mentioned that he was always unhappy as he realized
he still loves me and hence, he had no choice but to divorce his
wife. He said that the best time of his life was to read the letters
written by me to him.
If you love someone, don't wait till tomorrow to tell him/her. Maybe that next day will never come at all.
