‘What’ and ‘if’ are two words as non threatening as words can be. But put them together,
side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life:
‘What if?’ ‘What if?’ ‘What if?’
I don’t know how your story ended. But I know that if what you felt then was
love ‘true love’, then it’s never too late. If it was true then,
why wouldn’t it be true now?
You need only the courage to follow your heart.
I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like;
a love to leave loved ones for, a love to cross oceans
for. But I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, I’d have the courage
to seize it. I hope you had the courage to seize it, Claire.
And if you didn’t, I hope one day that you will.
All my love,
— Letters to Juliet
