why is it that only after being apart from someone for sometime wounds start to heal?

Why does it take so much time, distance and space
To heal the wounds
To make our peace
With a past we never really forget
We never really let go..
Why does it happen, that where once we were close
We look upon the other as naught but a stranger,
The absence of familiarity 
Its scary and absurd.
Why the pretense,
A farce,
to hide our true feelings and thoughts
Why does it take so long
To reconcile
To accept,
And move on.
Only to find ourselves once more confronted,
With the faces of the past,
Those familiar faces
Of people once loved.
As the distance grows
Everything changes,
But at some point we realise,
That person is still the same,
Then I ask,
What was the need for that distance, time and space?
