You speak of missing your beloved and needing them near you. However, there are periods when both should be apart more than they would otherwise prefer for the better protection of both parties. If one's beloved was in the hospital and attached to many machines that were keeping them alive, how wise would it be for the lover to selfishly detach their beloved from those machines so that they may hold them nearer to themselves? Is it not clear that doing so would imperil the beloved further? Be then content, for the time during which it's required, to be at the necessary distance from them and no further. Hold to your faith that your love is known and that your beloved will be there when you may return closer to their side.
