Distance means nothing when two hearts become one. Years ago I had the most unexpected situation come up. I reconnected with a young man that grew up houses away from where I lived. Timing was perfect as I was getting over a broken marriage and thought I could have some fun with this person, a distraction if you will, what could go wrong, him being in a different country. Growing up in the same area meant that we knew the same people, our home accents kicked in whenever we spoke, we had the same slangs. It felt great having someone to talk to, we both got to know each other lives and didn’t judge, we had things in common that drew us closer. As time went by we found ourselves not being able to go a few days without talking and texting. I found myself laying in bed thinking about this man, the gentleness in his voice.
One rainy day we sat before our computers on Skype no video chat, having a conversation and something incredible happen, this man saw right through me, he told me what I was feeling, he saw my tears streaming down my cheeks without seeing me and there and then we both knew that there was more to us than friends. Curiosity started to build up, the last we saw eacthother we were kids just seventeen years old. I was a bit shy not very confident in my body having two kids, gain weight so it was a nervous moment to make a decision to see him.
Our first Skype video chat, I had butterflies. I was so nervous. In as long as I could remember I never felt so freaking anxious. When our video call went through, we both sat there smiling at eacthother, not saying a word. It was an incredible moment. I wish that I could have reach over and hugged him. The longer we video chat,the more we texted and talked, our feelings were becoming stronger and we both wanted to see each other in person. Was it what I expected in the very beginning “NO” but it was exactly what I needed. The time is here, long waited to finally meet my very best friend, what feels like my soulmate if there is such a thing.
Together forever, never apart. Sometimes in distance but never in heart.
