There is a continent between us,
but it's like you are in the room,
the scent of your hair,
your laugh so alive with life,
your wisdom of the ages so brilliant.
It's like you are in my pocket,
close to my heart, close by,
your touch of tenderness,
your sensual kiss,
your eyes that see into my soul.
You are my savior on rainy days
when my storm subsides,
you are there for me,
safe from my darkness,
caring if I live or die in the world.
So far away for now unfortunately,
soon to be in a warm embrace,
beyond the lovers of time,
so genuinely of loving spirit
that you are truly always in my heart.
