Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Is that really true I wonder
Does it work without fail
Or is it just an old wives tale
I’m not sure the advice is the best
And I’m fearful to put it to the test
For if I were to go away
For a month, a week, a day
I fear I wouldn’t miss you and pine
But would think our separation fine

Separation Anxieties

A poem which speculates what result a period of separation would have on a relationship. The poem's title, Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder, suggests one outcome, but the poem itself appears to reaches a completely different conclusion.
