“I am never alone. You have made sure of that by giving me your friendship. I am sorry for being so closed in on myself at times. I spend most of my day living as if I were alone. In my heart I monologue with myself, while on the outside I bustle and chat. And where are you? I don’t want to relegate you to a few minutes in the morning and a few at night. I want to live in your presence, because I know that’s what you want…”
