Oh Rarechild, what a beautiful, loving thing you've done.
How exquisite it is to put your love's best interest before your own.
How bittersweet and how beautiful.
I hope your friend understands and appreciates the depth of your love and regard for him. I also hope he comes to realize love like that is a rare and precious treasure, worthy of cherishing and nurturing.
Bur whatever he chooses to do, I know you will always be blessed by this choice you've made.
