Friends, I’m moving to another town to study

Dear friends,

Unfortunately, I’m almost to leaving. As you all must know by now, next year I will be moving to another town to study. Anyway, I want you to know that, no matter how many words I use to express myself, I will never be able to convey all the love and affection I have for you. I can’t get used to the idea that I will be away from you; and it’s hard for me to write this letter, because every time I think of the distance that will keep us apart, my eyes fill with tears.
Friendship is something quite rare nowadays. I don’t mean friendship in itself but the daily practice of friendship, the expression of friendship. Hanging out with you has always been very pleasant and rewarding and I want you to know that I hope my presence has also had a positive note on all of you.
My dear friends, this period of absence does not mean the end of something. It’s going to take a lot more than that to make me forget the love you’ve always given me and the love I gave back in return.
Please keep me in your hearts as a true friend and don’t forget: it’s what inside of you that counts, specially the respect for one another. And if you also have love and affection, like we do, that’s even better.
This is how I feel about you… I will miss you, but I will always be in touch. I wish I could fully enjoy the last moments of your loving company, and to thank you for all the good things you have given me, looking you in the eyes and giving each one of you a big hug…
I will be far away, many miles will separate us physically, but I want you to know that you will be “traveling” with me in the warmest corners of my heart.

Love. Your friend
