Lingering Longer

Last night I reached for you
Though you are far from here
I held you dearly to my cheek
In a tear

Love learns to open arms
And mouth ‘love-you’ good-byes
But I can see you soft and clear
Behind closed eyes

Sometimes when I can feel
You near way over there
I hold you close within my heart
In a prayer
