I pray that when you read this , you are safely on the other side of the ocean.
It was good to have you here as always. Remember that this city will always be eagerly awaiting your next visit, in whichever season it may be. And always receive you with a big smile.
Take with you all the good memories, leave behind any sad and awkward moments. Take with you the strength you gained, and keep with you the support you always have from this side of the ocean.
Remember that this city is closer than your own heart. Closer than the distance between you and sadness. Closer than the time it takes for a tear to slide down your cheek.
Forgive this city for all its shortcomings and mistakes. For its childish behaviour and immature nature. Look past its weaknesses and you will see goodness and friendship, and deep and genuine care. Look beyond it all and you will see yourself living in its heart.
