We live in different positions. We rarely recognize one another in person anymore. But our length has not slackened our friendship. You are still a better acquaintance to me than some of the girls next door.
I have friends who could drive to my region in fewer than ten minutes — but they do not check in on me as often as you. They do not make time for me as frequently as you. They do not care as much as you.
You never dismiss me. You transport random texts with inside jokes. You all of my selfies. You show interest in my dating life. You call me on social media. You ask to make sure everything is all right.
Even from miles away, the amount you care about me is self-evident. Meanwhile, there are friends who lives on the same vicinity who start me wonder whether they care about me at all. It would be easy for them to make an effort to see me, but they rarely designated plans. Despite our closeness, I interpret them as little as I see you — and I rely on them a lot less than I rely on you.
You are different. You will answer my calls at any time of darknes. You will lose sleep to talk me through my problems. You will do me laugh harder from a text than anyone else can spawn me laugh in person. You know me better than anyone and it shows.
Other friends might be nearby physically, but you are always there for me emotionally and that is what counts. You praise me on my success. You never let me speak severely about myself. You praise me. You tell me you love me. You genuinely care about my happiness.
You’ve made an effort to keep in contact with me even though it would be much easier to allow our friendship to disappearance. You could have ghosted with apologizes about how busy you have been and how hard long-distance rapports are to upkeep — and I would have understood — but it has decided to stick with me. You are not going anywhere.
Sometimes, I forget how far away you are because you are the only one who is there for me on a spiritual level. You are the only one who is reliable. You are the only one who is.
There are friends of mine who turn down plans because they are not interested in driving a half-hour to meet up with me. They don’t think I’m worth the time or the exertion. They would rather be alone.
Meanwhile, we wish to hop on aircrafts to picture each other. We are willing to cross countries for one another. We are willing to take off creation and save up money to insure each other.
I miss you every single day. I detest how much distance is spread between us. But even from far away, you are still a better love than anyone. You are still my favorite party.
