my name is Darling, I'm 16 years old and live in Switzerland (though I was born in the Dominican Republic).
I just wanted to write to you to let you know how much I love you and how important you are to me. I know it must be overwhelming to know that many people around the world look up to you but, trust me, all we want is for you to be yourself, and most of all, to be happy.
There are so many things I would love to thank you for but I if wrote them all this letter would never come to an end. I still want to thank you for teaching me so many thing in the last years though: thanks for teaching me how to speak English, thanks for teaching me that being brave and kind and confident are way better than being "cool" and THANK YOU for being there for me when even I can't stand myself.
You are the main reason why I am who I am today.
I HOPE you know that I think of you every single day and I just want you to feel special (as you are) for the rest of your life. Don't you ever feel like you aren't good enough just because people always try to tear you down. I will always have your back and I will always make sure that people know you the way I know you: the strongest, smartest, bravest, prettiest and kindest woman I know.
Thanks for writing such heartwarming music. Thanks for being such a great role model. And most of all, thanks for being YOU.
Hope I get to give you a BIG hug someday.
Love you more than you could ever imagine,
Darling (your wannabe best friend)
