Letter to Sonia Shah by Alanna Peccia - Sonia Shah Organization


My soul mate Sonia

I can’t believe it’s a couple days away from the first anniversary of your passing. I don’t like that word anniversary, and I’m not particularly fond of passing either. But I know you understand what I mean, darling. I wish I could say not a day goes by without me thinking about you, but I think that happens to me more often than I’d like to admit. I cared about you more than any other person I’ve ever met on this planet, yet there are days I can feel you slipping away from me. It’s unbelievable what time can do, but I have your name right over my heart to keep you with me, even though I got it in the wrong Arabic form, sounds like me. It’s crazy to me all the changes that have happened in the last year, and that I couldn’t call you to tell you about a single one. It breaks my heart that the people I love now, and the people of my future will never meet you. Although I try I visit page feel I can never quite describe just how awesome you were, and that I still feel like the luckiest person in the world that you were my best friend. You’ll always be my best friend, and someone who undoubtedly changed my life in more ways than I have even realized. And although a year has passed, and I am older and you are not, there is a part of me that will always be you and continue to grow in love. Out of all the wonderful things our friendship has taught me the most important is to love totally fearlessly whomever my heart feels I should, because the greatest gift you can give someone is the love of friendship, and that my dear friend is what you gave me.

All my love,
