I was stricken with a most profound grief upon learning of the death of your beloved father. On behalf my family, I must express to you our heartfelt sympathy and, as always, offer you our love. Though I hold the utmost confidence in your ability to assume your late father's position, it saddens me greatly to think of you mourning in solitude. As it has been quite a matter of years since we last stood in one another's presence, I must selfishly request that you pass at least a few months at my family's estate in Wallachia as you heal. I beg of you not to isolate yourself in your grief. I pray for the swift return of your happiness and hopefully await your visit.
All my love,

how would you see me? Would you even still look?
Would you push me away and pretend I'm not there?
Would the honest me be just too much to bear?
If I threw away caution, let it fly in the wind.
Told you my secrets let all of you in.
Would you still look at me kindly, even still care?
Would you hold my hand gently and still be there?
If I looked at you with anger and sadness or fear,
with you, knowing the reasons, still lend an ear?
If I was to cry and fall down on my face,
would you lie and say nicely it was done with some grace?
With all of my faults laid out to see,
could you accept them and love them honestly?
The price you would pay seeing me under the light,
all the imperfection's and scars no more out of sight.
If you knew me, all of me, open and whole,
would you still say you love me, with all of your soul?
Would you look at me, the same as you do,
when you think that you know me,
when I know that's not true.
