Nina, I’m truly sorry that your beloved mother died.

I heard the sad news from a close friend of your mother.


Why didn’t you try to contact me and tell me about it?

Did you expect me to show up when you didn’t call me?


I was deeply pained, for you didn’t seek my sympathy.

And I could only imagine the intense sorrow that you felt.


Nina, you must’ve needed someone to comfort you.

Were you ashamed to talk to me because of what you did?


I wanted us to mourn the loss of your mom together.

And I really wanted to embrace you in your time of grief.


If you had invited me, I would’ve attended the funeral.

Nina, I didn’t want you to go through that ordeal alone.


You were still angry with me even when your mom died.

Why did a good relationship turn out so badly for us, Nina?
