Every heart has thought the words "I wish we could be together" at least once in more than one context. As I think of what I wrote on the back of an envelope as a way to express what I cannot say, I realize what a universal sentiment this carries with it. Children, parents, friends, lovers, brothers, sisters, families. We all have someone we wish to be near, someone we miss.
It can also be metaphorical in nature--to have more unity of mind and heart. Lack of unity can create this wish to be together because it isn't happening. People can be the equivalent of a thousand miles apart while sitting in the same room when their hearts are not knit as one.
My wish is to create a sense of unity with others through love and friendship that we may feel togetherness. And maybe some day I will find a significant other who wants this togetherness, too.
