The Distance Between Us


Separated by the seas
Connected only by a virtual web
I’ve learned to be patient
As I wait for your return

Through pictures
I can feel the warmth
Emanating from your eyes
From your smile

The sound of your voice
I can only imagine
The sound of your laughter
I can only imagine

Our words are seldom
Perhaps we’re just too shy
Since romance has been absent
From both of our lives

As the distance between us closes
I wonder if you share my anticipation
For when we meet
For the very first time

  1. Anticipating anticipation – I love the last stanza, the delicate balance of hopefulness and doubt is beautiful in those lines. Sometimes the distance seems larger than it really is and I do hope it doesn’t weaken the sweet bond. 🙂
