Missing

Dear Friend,
Please come home, your parents are worried and we miss you a lot. I have come to learn that you left home because you wanted to land yourself a job and be independent. I understand that sentiment but your life is full of people who will worry their heads off if you go missing. I am not so worried because somewhere I know you will not kill yourself, but I am afraid that I might lose you to this vast city and not know ever where you are, knowing only that somewhere in this large world you walk your own walk. That will make this world special place, like an island that hides a treasure or a sky with one star on which a flower that you have cared for lives. But I don't want that mystery, It is better that I know where to find a friend when I am in need of one. Maybe you are thinking we people will bug you if you come back and you will not have the peace of mind you are so in need of. Your fear is justified and it is very true that you will lose you peace once you are with us, but I think we live a life not alone but with all the people near us. Nearness adds meaning to our lives , a lot of what we become in life is also about what your loved ones become because we loved them. It will take effort to come back, but I can help you with a few memories, our past is an amazing ambassador. I invite you to think of the times when we passed time in the college woods sipping on hot tomato soup and munching chicken rolls, or just think of how every time I saved for you that last piece of meat of the three pieces the Chinese guy from college used to top our fried rice with.

Your Friend,
Sagar.

In one of the sentences, you wrote 'loose' which I believe you wanted to mean 'lose'
