I can hardly believe it. After all the years of dreaming and longing, all those long sleepless nights wondering if this would ever come to be. Yet, now that we are on the threshold of reality, I approach it with mixed emotions.
You see for so long you were my special secret, the part of me that was untouched by the harshness of the world. You were my solace in times of agony. The one with whom I freely relinquished my doubts, fears, joys and hurts.
As I sit here the old doubts and fears being to creep in. Is it all worth it? I wonder what the reaction will be. A part of me longs to turn back the clock. The voices in my head tell me to take flight and run away from this moment. Yet, I cannot. I owe it to myself, to you and to all of our dreams to see this through to till the end.
The feeling overwhelms me; it is like standing on the high dive seconds before jumping in. Well old friend this is it. There is no turning back everything has been revealed. All that is left is to see what they think of you. I close my eyes, take a deep breath, slowly exhale and make those final steps that will lead me into my new reality. I open the morning paper and read the critics review of my very first manuscript.
