Perhaps that is why we feel the distance
Even when you are only minutes away
Or sitting in the next room.
Because heart, the soul cannot understand distance
They only feel the absence of you not being here.
I cannot get through to them and explain
That what they feel is temporary
That soon, by walking to the next room
I will be within arms length of you.
The only problem is your are not minutes away
And you are not sitting in the next room
You are exactly 1284.1 miles away.
And although that is not as bad as it can be
I still feel this ache that I cannot describe.
A pain so great that makes me break down
From time to time..
And as much as I try to tell myself that soon we will Be together, my brain cannot make my heart comprehend That.
