They say that distance makes the heart grow fonder.
Of what do they mean?
Fond of never speaking again?
Fond of missing that person?
Fond of forgetting?
Fond of all the accumulated memories?
I don’t see any meaning in that statement.
One can be separated for several years and reconnect and another can do the same and smile, chat for a minute and disappear again.
My words are vague and my meaning is sure.
I have been away for so long, and God has been waiting on me patiently to come back into his arms where I belong.
I can’t believe it’s been so long, but God I’m here, and I’m willing to stay.
Just show me the way.
Don’t be troubled little one,
I am here.
Don’t be worried little one,
I am here.
When there’s a frown on your face,
And things seem to be at a very slow place.
Don’t you fear little one,
I am here.
Things have changed…
So, so much
So much that I don’t even know what to say
My friends are now ex-friends
And my best friends are not acquaintances
And what bothers me is
That I don’t really care anymore
Although I did…once
Things have suddenly changed
You never really did care about me
I bet you figured that
I was this stupid kid, looking for attention
And yeah, I got it
But then I had to leave
It wasn’t my fault
I couldn’t do anything
So you went ahead and replaced me
Found new friends, new buddies
When I no longer had any friends anymore
Those that were friends had already gone their own way
Except a few
To whom I will say, Thank You
Thank you for being my friend
Even at the end
You comforted me when I was doubtful
When I would over-react about how much I missed the company of my friends
When I figured…
We weren’t even friend in the first place
You just wanted to keep up appearance
So you kept your appearance
While I continued to lose mine
So much that I changed from a dedicated member
To one who didn’t even care anymore
Just answer me this one simple question
To relieve me from my doubts
Should I stay, or should I go?
I will leave you alone
Only if that’s what you truly want
Just say so
And I’ll go
Without another word…
