1179 miles

The distance between you and me.

I never knew I’d miss you so much even in unfamiliar lands. I thought it would be easy. After all, we have never walked the tree lined streets together or watched the sun set behind the hills…

The shores I walked with you are a thousand miles away.
And it is you who I have left behind to live with all the memories.

Everyday you see my empty desk, drive past streets we walked together… And yet every time I talk to you are so admirably calm. “Take your time girl”, you tell me in nonchalant tones.

“Absence makes the heart grow fonder”, mused a Roman poet, “Out of sight, out of mind”, said the English one.
