"i used to think distance sucked.
i assumed i'd feel that way with you when you left.
and it's not that i'm glad that you're gone.
because i'm not.
but i am quite content with you being over there and me, here.
i think we both appreciate the space.
but there are some evenings when i lie awake cold and i need something to cuddle-
i think of you and picture forty peaceful winks.
and for a moment you're no longer over there.
you are here."
