Though Apart, Will Always Be Together

why do you have to leave now? denial has been my pill and collapse seem inevitable if I stop. How can I hold time responsible for this? Is there a way to put it behind bars? I stand as a helpless kitten watching its mother taken for sale I weep as a Nation whose King is going captive to foreign lands. And like a young chick fatally exposed to flying Eagles. My mind says its for good but my heart refuses to comprehend. As true as you are climbing up the ladder, my feelings had wished; that ladder should be my presence. How can I recover from the smiles you manufacture in me from no raw materials? Who can replace the immense kindness you shower as a default to your being? You've now created my days of sad songs sang without sounds nor instruments. My days are now getting longer and my nights darker than darkness. Memories of you are life itself and no matter how I try your absence entails the removal of my Life's support. Leaving me, has caused the most delicious of meals and the finest materials of silk, cotton and polyesthers all to turn my taste and appetite sour. When will I ever see you friend? Am I really going to meet you there? Or is this the end of our world? You leave me with many questions and a great deal of uncertainty. Swear to me my dear make me this promise and please be faithful to your Oath. That though apart, we will always be together. That my pain now, is worth it and at the end we will come back and be re-united in a much more intense and unshakable bond. I greatly weep as I say goodbye cos it is difficult doing it, while looking into your eyes. GOOD BYE FRIEND!

    I felt the intensity of your emotions. I have had to leave friends behind but in this day and age we can maintain bonds at great distances. I hope that you and your friend are still connected.
