The distance melts away

The empty space between us melts away
When you’re in love a single word will do
I know that you’re beside me every day

On days when I am feeling flat and grey
I turn to thoughts of you and all is new
The empty space between us melts away

I wait for every word you have to say
Then happily I join your retinue
I know that you’re beside me every day

We speak and all my senses want to play
Every second we were sharing simply flew
The empty space between us melts away

I set my thoughts to wander where they may
Through every little street and avenue
I know that you’re beside me every day

No danger that my feelings ever stray
The future that I’m dreaming of is you
The empty space between us melts away
I know that you’re beside me every day

Author notes

7.) Can miles truly separate you from friends… If you want to be with someone you love, aren’t you already there?

-Richard Bach
