Absence makes the heart grow fonder

I never felt the weight of this saying until it landed heavily on my head with a thud.

It was that time when my closest friend went out of the country. I felt so lonely. I craved for a companion, so much that I wished I could find my way there. But i had chains around me. Chains that kept me from moving. Chains of time and distance.

I couldn’t fill the gap. No one was fit for those shoes. No one has ever been, and no one will ever be. I learnt one thing for sure, Nothing can ever substitute a true Companion . And that patience pays. I can now stand tall and walk with along the streets holding the hands of my one true friend.

I long for the day when nothing will come our way. Not rules, not time, not distance, nothing. Just us.
