‘what’ and ‘if’

Dear Claire,


‘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 if what you felt then was true love

Then it’s neer 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, that I’d have the courage to seize it

And Claire, if you didn’t

I hope one day that you will.

All my love,


— Taken from the movie, “Letters to Juliet”
