A Letter to My Girlfriend


This is my girlfriend, Kyla. I love her so much.

A Letter to Kyla,

Because you mean the world to me, I’ll do anything for you. If only I could. I’ll cry for your pain, I’ll send you love, I’ll try to make you laugh, I’ll share a secret, I’ll weep in silence, I’ll bark at your peeps, I’ll feed your hunger…I’ll do anything for you.

But I can’t make it stop. I can’t make the cancer go away.

You mean the world to me. So, I promise, from this point on, I won’t be sad.

Instead, I’ll be the happiest boyfriend you’ve ever had. I won’t dwell on the the pain of what you and your family are going through. Instead, I’ll celebrate each and every day that you’re in my world. We’ll celebrate together, okay?

I’ll arrooooo rooo at you, we can exchange pee mails and share nude photos with each other.  Yeah! That’s it! We can sext each other! Oh boy! I’m feeling better already, aren’t you?

It’s time to savor every moment. Every second. Every green bean. Every single, solitary thing…. if it makes you happy, it’ll make me happy.

Arrroo Rroooo like nobody’s listening, eat like you’ve never eaten, and chomp those tails off of those lizards any time you want.

Because you’re my friend and you mean the world to me.

Love Always and Forever, Stu
