" LONG - DISTANCE LOVE "
A heart as full as vessels hold,
I hold you as I can -
though miles conspire to separate,
I write to you again.
The gift of words will last a life,
be they harsh or kind -
for once the eyes do take them in
they're branded on the mind.
And sweet are those I get from you,
a faith in me, I sense -
It's truly earned in all I feel
to ease you when you're tense.
Though try I do, to find a way,
I stumble at each start
in dealing with my other side
who keeps herself apart.
Oh don't let's speak of that, my dear,
I've all this love to spill -
And we shall triumph in our time,
until these clocks do still.
