In your absence

Did you realize that the days have now turned into weeks and weeks to months since you promised me to come home? I was always against you when you said you wanted to join the army, remember? Yeah, I know you are a hero for the country and I am proud of it but sometimes, in your absence, my mind leaves its place. In your absence, I feel that I could live without oxygen but I would die if I have to wait even one more second.

You have no idea what’s going on here. A single phone call that you make once in a week is what has kept me alive till now. I understand that there is nothing we both can do but it’s surprising how our past memories bring happiness and agony at the same time. I feel uplifted one second and the next second, I feel a burning pain in my heart. Return back soon or something hapless can happen to me in your absence.
