'What' and ‘if’ two words as nonthreatening as words come. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: ‘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 it why wouldn't it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart... I don't know what a love like that feels like... a love to leave loved ones for, a love to cross oceans for... but I'd like to believe if I ever felt 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.
The letter was taken from the movie "Letters to Juliet" (written by Sophie, in response to Claire's letter for Juliet 50 years ago).
The movie talks about destiny, chances and second chances. While I'm on the verge of losing hope due to tragic circumstances in the past, this movie made me believe that true love does exist.
I may never be a believer of destiny but I guess it won't hurt to have faith in it now, even just a little.
