Cards and letters, and texts and emails. I pulled some out, from former girlfriends and girl friends. Here’s a sample of some of what I found. It’s not all sweets and chocolates. Some are strange or funny, maybe. Some might not make sense to a reader. But here they are. Names are left out.

You’re an empathetic mess

Just wanted to drop you a letter and say hello. I will be home on the 28th and 29th. Maybe we can get together. Happy Thanksgiving.

After everything it’s nice we’re still friends. Hope we stay friends.

It’s a hoedown!

Hi There! Maybe when you get this I’ll be on my way to Florida. I sure hope the van makes it. If not, I’ll be spending my Christmas in Tennessee or something! Anyway, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

I hope the New Year brings you much deserved happiness! Keep yourself under control on Sunday! You are a wonderful pal and guy.

You’re the best. I just want to wish you the best for Christmas and the New Year. Thank you for always caring.

My skin is getting darker, my hair is getting lighter. I’ll talk to you when I get home. Miss you!

Maybe I’m pushing it just a little. Sorry!

Happy Valentine’s Day my darling buttercup!

May you have a Merry Christmas and may your green bucket be with you always.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas!Don’t let your arm get too tired.

I’ll be nice and just say Merry Christmas.

I love you!!! P.S. Don’t Change.

I hope I didn’t ruin your night by asking you that question on the way home.

Go to hell!

I think after all that’s happened, it’s really neat that we’re as close as we all are.

I’ll always be there.

I put out.

Are you just gonna witter on?

The picture on the front (of the note) is scary, but not as scary as things will be around here that tonight.

I know I will always be able to count on you and that means so much to me.

Well, it’s the thought that counts. Night!

Top up, Liffey. Top up.

I found these posters yesterday while I was cleaning and thought of you.

I don’t think I’ll be home until late Friday but that never seems to matter.

Sometimes things get really hectic, but I don’t want you to think I don’t care.

Don’t forget that you can give me a call too.

I miss you.

I suppose it’s slightly bizarre we’re such good friends after all we’ve been through.

Sometimes I don’t say it enough, but I always believe it.

I really want to fuck you.

I’m not sure if I really let you know that I sometimes don’t say anything, but I always care.

There’s so much I want to do with you.

Next time wear pants.

Love you forever.
