I chose that word for you.

I miss you the most when I go to sleep, because that’s when we would have wasted hours texting back and forth.

I miss you the most when I cannot decide which nail polish colour do I wear because a phone call with you would have resolved this in 30 seconds.

I miss you the most when I cannot study and I know I can call you because you probably can’t study too.

I miss you the most when I have my Saturday morning coffee in Zamalek.

I miss you the most when I try a new dish and I know you would have loved it.

I miss you the most when I’m trying a new recipe and I know I don’t have the chance to try it on you.

I miss you the most when I’m picking a card for someone. You were my card picking buddy.

I miss you the most when I see a cute puppy and I know you would have wanted to take him home with you.

I miss you the most when I sit alone.

I miss you the most when I’m with people.

I miss you the most when I’m eating.

I miss you the most when I’m going somewhere.

I miss you the most when I’m writing.

I miss you the most when I’m singing.

I miss you the most when I’m breathing.

I miss you the most when I’m doing almost anything.

I miss everything. I miss all the little things.

I miss you the most all of the time.

Homeless

The homeless are not necessarily those who sleep on the streets. The homeless are the ones whose hearts had lead astray.

Don’t make homes out of people or temporary states of mind.

Find your home within yourself.

I never wanted to save you. You don’t need that. You are not drowning. You just forgot how to swim. And I’m out of breath.

I am gaping for air. You can see me. There could be no clearer signs. You have to remember how to swim, soon. I can no longer carry you around. I can no longer stay in the sea. Save this. Be a hero.

I’m swimming to the shore.

I know you’ll make it out of there someday.

Farewell.
