About the Poem

I sat at the computer slowly contemplating how to use my time as I scratched this poem on an old e-mail. I was distraught that my sweetheart had left for a week long excursion to Florida, and this was the result. I truly love her, and I could not stand to be without her.

So Far Away, Yet Always Close

So far away...
the beaches which you walk.

Yet so close...
always in my heart.

So far away...
I cannot touch your hand,
I cannot feel your breath,
I cannot hold you close.

Yet so close...
I can feel you in my heart,
I can see you in my mind,
I can hear you in my ears.

You can go so far away...
You can travel to the ends of the earth...

But as long as I have your love...
As long as I have you...
You will always be close.

As sure as the sun rises,
And the tides will change,
I will always love you,
An you will always be close to my heart.
