We had been together all our lives, best friends that’s what everyone called us but I knew we were way more than that, we were soul mates.
Even though we had never been romantic towards each other, the feelings have always been there. Then you had to go away to school, I know it wasn’t too far physically but to me, it felt like a thousand miles apart.
I missed you every minute of every day. I was glad when you came back and told me you would never leave me again and we made a vow that anywhere you go, I go, where you are is where my heart belongs.
