Distance



Close and tender,
truly it felt,
your warmth close to me,
for a second,
yes a second,
did my heartbeat,
your mine and mine to keep,

A lifetime I pondered,
a lifetime I lived,
hoping and living in your warmth,
then reality struck ,
your fears instilled,
Pushed me to far farway into the dark distance,

I kept praying,
praying silently,
that you too would notice the warmth,
but yes to my sad,
sad reality,
I was already way beyond your distance

Just one leap of faith,
Is all I ask,
and I jump all the next hurdles,

The truth remains,
you drag me close,
close enough we feel our warmth,
the truth remains,
you push me away,
so that not even miles could ever recover our distance.
