As you may know from a previous post, I been put in contact with an old flame. It turns out that he is in his final few months of life after a major battle with melanoma and secondaries.
We’ve exchanged a few email but these have dried up somewhat due to him going through what he calls a rough patch. All this has left me feeling quite raw and emotional. From the couple of emails he’s written it seems there is an ex-wife, an ex-partner and a twenty year old child in his life since we parted. Communication with the two ex-partners is limited but at least his daughter has decided to stay with him so I know he’s not entirely on his own.
So what is my role in all this? I’ve no idea but I get the feeling he needs to feel ok that we split up the way we did. He may need to know that I look back on our time together with nothing but fondness, and I count him as a blessing in my life.
He helped me to know what I wanted in a partner so that when I did find “the one” I’d know it. And I did. Of course I snogged many a frog on the way to finding my prince, but find him I did. Literally within days of meeting Mr D I knew he was “the one”… and still is to this day.
Thank you Mr T xx
