Sometimes saying Goodbye means Missing Someone Less

My best friend is very missed, but in a way, I don’t have to miss him anymore. I used to call him only every few months, in spurts. We both were busy. And we always said we’d make plans to meet up soon, this year, this month, over the phone, skype. A lot of effort for getting together. Now…I can just think of him, and know he is here. Because he’s not “out there” anymore.
