Far Away


Soul wracked with love

Pure pain of apart

Cool serene darkness hides

My expression from me


Great distance separates us

Two forever as one

Longing divides my soul

Passion tears my chest


Time stretches to forever

Can’t see next dawning

Mind plays out images

Fades out with reality


Expectation of reunion nears

Her love approaches invisible

Touches my saddened heart

Memory of past passion


Moment of reliving arrives

Soul’s blackness washed clean

Newborn love fills void

Her cradled loving embrace


Feel her pain dispersing

Eyes swimming with tenderness

Souls rebond to one

Till the next separation


What is this force?

Power supreme yet unmeasurable

Desired by all living

Created by so few
