Between The Miles

Because existence can become severe
in one day,
just sense me and I'll be there.
In the minds eye,
I'm not so far away.
If you hold out your hand,
in the whispers,
I'll become the zephyr.
and besiege you.
If your eye's upon the stars,
in the crystalline darkness,
I'll become the moon.
And the light shall guide you.
If you rest upon the ground,
in the warmth,
I'll become the grass.
And embrace you.
If you turn outside,
in the wetness,
I'll become the rain.
An upon your forehead, kiss you.
If you free the air,
in the light of day,
I'll become the sun.
And smile for you.

Between the miles-
if you need me.
If you need a friend.
Let me be the friend, I want to be.

Great poem Heather. I hope you will continue with this God given gift and share with us all your ability.
Emmy
I couldn't have said it better myself than the words did in this poem. My best friend just moved away to college, and I sent it to her because it reminded me of her. It really touched me, and I know it will do the same for her.
Hong
I think this poem is extremely beautiful and I have sent it to three of my best friends. They also enjoy it very much.

The voice speaks in this poem. The longing and offering of connection feels more personal.
