Close to Me....


We count in miles
The distance that separates
But I’ve discovered something new
Those miles are really
Quite meaning less
I’m never that far from you
Because if I were
I would not feel you
Like an invisible
Sheet
Wrapped around my shoulders
In the house or on the
Street
I hear your tender laughter
Melt across my silent
Hour
Like a soft and secret love song
Or a perfect purple
Flower
So in spite of asphalt highway
That is measured by a mile
I prefer to miss you my way
In the shadow of your smile
As I reach out to touch you
In a quiet
Memory
I realize that you
Are never
Very far from
Me
