We know how it feels to be separated from your loved ones, and young children are often in tears when bidding their favorite person goodbye. Likewise, for this young “couple” in Louisiana, it was a tearful goodbye when one of them had to move away.

This young couple, Merce Meynardie, and his girlfriend, Mylee, of Gonzales, Louisiana, met each other in a dance class run by Merce’s grandmother when they were two years old. Since then, they have been inseparable, the Daily Mail reported.

“They have always said they were boyfriend and girlfriend for as long as I can remember,” said Merce’s father, Glen.

But they had to be separated after Glen found a new job in California and the family had to follow.

“When Mylee found out we were moving, she said, ‘My life is over. I’m supposed to marry Merce. How am I going to marry him if he is in California?’” Glen said.

The day finally came when they had to bid each other farewell. It was an emotional moment as both of them wore matching outfits from their last dance recital as they hugged each other. Mylee was wiping off her tears as she bid her Merce goodbye.

Their adorable and teary farewell was photographed by the family and uploaded to Twitter by Mylee’s older sister, Haylie.

“My little sister’s boyfriend is moving and their goodbyes were the saddest thing ever,” Haylie wrote on Twitter. Within a few days, the post garnered over 170,000 likes.

Twitter users who saw the sentimental photos hope the couple meet again a few years later, and continue on.
