If Only…

He: So, this is it?
She: If you need to ask me, it isn’t.
He reached for her hair and kissed her like it was their last, hoping that it wasn’t.
He: You’ll find someone who loves you more than I ever did.
She: If only, it was enough. If only, being loved meant everything. If only, being someone’s only reason for happiness meant ecstasy. If only, being someone’s life made life worthwhile. If only, having someone meant being someone’s. If only.
He: Then what matters?
She: Bringing out the crazy in someone. You’re my ‘crazy’. No one will ever be.
He: I will miss you.
She: I wish you didn’t have to.
He leaned forward and kissed her forehead. She watched him walk out the door. If only, he walked out her heart. If only.
