The Space Between You and Me
In my mind I watch you standing on the
far side of a crowded room;
a universe away.
Later tonight I will watch the stars
outside my window;
light years beyond my reach.
That is when I’ll long to hold you and whisper,
there is no distance as infinite as
the space between you and me.
