When I hear him say, “I miss you.”
It’s always in a low voice—a voice full of sincerity and hopes of “see you soon’s.” I sometimes get nervous that one day, while we’re apart, I’ll stop hearing “I miss you” the same way he says it now. As if the time apart will change feelings. I forget that those feelings are deep-rooted and can’t change just by a little time apart. His “I miss you’s” remind of me of that.
We may be far away now, but those “I miss you’s” don’t last forever. I know I’ll see him soon.
