V39: Distance takes us far apart…

Distance takes us far apart,
And darkens my today.
I have to keep remembering –
You’re just a thought away.

When the world is too confusing,
Times are hard to bear,
I pull your precious meaning,
Your bright spirit, from the air.

If I sometimes drift into
A lonely state of mind,
I gather up the memories
Of days we left behind.

And though you’re not beside me,
I can tap into my heart,
And draw upon the warmth and love,
That lives when we’re apart.

And with these fond reflections
On the times when you were near,
I sense a little bit of what
It’s like to have you here.
