So Close Yet So Far Away

So sad to be so close yet so far away, only one phone call

And we had to say goodbye, then cry, then again to fall

While still uncertain who would bring the curtain down

To cause another frown on my face at your unsure pace

In leaving with an intention of staying gone long enough

But now what are we to do when too few days remain

And the rain keeps falling and washing away my hoping

And my longing to belong to you yet again even in sin

Because you just mean that much to me ever to be free

But you simply will not pick up the phone to call home

And so I’m alone and weary, so close yet so far away

    1. Thank you so very much, Miriam. I was actually thinking about someone specific and I really did (and still do) feel sad. Well, this is one important reason I love poetry: It gives me an artistic avenue to express innermost feelings. Of course, you know what I mean! Your book of poetry is an excellent, beautiful example! Blessings to you!

      1. I know, Jonathan. When you have a specific person in mind, it draws the real and deep feelings.

        I love this saying,

        ‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. by Alfred Lord Tennyson

        Thank you for reading my book.
