A million miles away

There is no way that I could face the day –
Without the thought that you are by my side.
Who else could bring the comfort you provide,
If you were lost a million miles away?
    Without your touch my life’s in disarray,
    I have to know if you are safe and well.
    I’d never find another tale to tell
    If you were lost a million miles away.
You are behind the words I find to say
The thought of losing you is quite absurd
I doubt that I should write another word
If you were lost a million miles away.
    There is no way that I could face the day –
    If you were lost a million miles away.
