Poem – Distance

I’ve decided to write another poem :) It’s called “distance” – this is a concept I’ve become very familiar with this summer. The word has new meaning for me.

The distance is close

Or it is far

No matter the length

There is a star


What has been asked

I will continue to oblige

For care and respect

Trump feeling and eyes


It seems so simple

This basic request

But honor and care

I give to it my best


Distance is not just length

It’s the feeling inside

Of something missing

As I take each stride


I travel each day

In my mind

A distance so vast

For a familiar find


As I walk

The smile returns

The weight lessens

Yet the fire burns


No matter the distance

I realize what I carry

It is the talisman of you

Which is not scary
