A Letter To Soia, From Me

Miscellaneous By: SavvyApple

I have a nanny.
Her name is Soia.
I love her very much.
But I can only see her every four years or so because she lives off the coast of Australia. I don't have much contact with her - she's had to reach my phone, you can't really get internet over there, and letters take forever. We still write, yeah, but... There's not really any guarantee when she'll get it. Therefore I want to post a letter that I thought of on here. It's real. This is real.

Dear Soia,

Today In English we were talking about dealing with loss. Lots of people have to deal with loss, right? I mean, I'm obviously not the only one. I can't be. That's on thing I know - everyone's experienced loss, but I'm not sure how powerful everyone's loss is. I know mine is pretty powerful, though. You live on the other side of the wolrd in Samoa. It's hard not to miss you. I only see you like every four years too. And every time you come, it's a relaly good time, but then we have to take you to the airport and all these good times end in tears.

Every time.

I wrote a poem for you sometime in Feburary. One day I'm going to publish it and show it to you and you'll be proud. I called it "Why Are You Going That Far?" It's depressing... But It's how I felt. You know what other song I have stuck in my head while I write this? The son you sing every night; I love you.. Yes I love you... I love you... With all... My... heart..." It's short but I can't get it out of my heat. Or heart. I don't think I'll ever forget that one.

Soia, how am I supposed to know if you've passed or not? It's like, I uneerstnd if you go someone will call. But how soon will that news reach us? I don't want to know that you've passed a week after you've actually passed. So how will i know?

I love you Soia. I love the good times and memories we share. Something tells me that when you pass I'll know. I also know that when I stop loving you or forget you, I'll have a gut feeling about it.

I'm never going to experience that feeling.

That I also know.

For sure.

I love you Soia.

No one can change that.

For sure.
