Distance

Snuggled into your disarming embrace
All the world seems to have found its place
I Look into your eyes, so grey, brown, and blue
And I think to myself, could this really be true?
All this time missing out on what could have been
Not knowing any better; I didn’t have you back then
I didn’t have your face
To look into when I woke up
Didn’t have your smile and laugh
To remind me of my good luck
I didn’t have this feeling
That although you’re far away
A part of my heart is whole
In a completely unnatural way
And although it’s painful
For me to be apart
From the one I love so much
At least this poem is a start
At accepting the distance doesn’t matter
Chris, you are the one for me
I’ve never felt it deeper with anyone
This is what love must truly be.
