I guess the thing about friends is that we know distance or time is never of importance. That we will still be as close as the last time we met, even after years of not seeing each other. That we know that life may not permit the company, but we will always have them at heart.
If u haven't seen or heard from a friend for ages, but when u do, u feel as though that person had never been away, then u'd have a true friend which will outlast even the ages. - Exerpt from the preachings of Phenom
