"Faraway Lover"

It avails you not, to think upon distance,

nor the might of the realm of space -

for that is all it can ever be,

this great thing that now separates -

and you and I, we are so much more

while urging hearts to a faster pace.

I think upon you, and though feel as I do

the need to race and linger

at your side,

I give to this no never mind.

For you are contained within the ocean of my heart,

and will never go out with the tide.

This is a beautiful, thoughtful poem, luddie as I am in a long distance relationship I know the distance that can separate one by miles, but we are so close in spirit and soul that the distance fades into the night and i just have to look at the star in the sky that shines here in Canada and Oregon and know that all the distance the world is worth the effort to know i am so truly loved by an angel god sent me, your poem says what i cannot, thank you

Thanks, C, I do appreciate comments like yours, and yes indeed, every word comes from my fevered brain lol!  Sometimes I'm not sure I'm in the right century though, as I tend to become flowery and use $10 words when a .50 one will do.  Cathy
