Far From Me, Near Me
Far from the reach of my protective wing,
you fly on your own, battered and afraid,
while I sit here upon a tree and sing
of your return to the safe nest we made.
Far from the field of my safeguarding view,
you wander in the dark without a chart,
while I glow brightly, a lighthouse for you
till you sail back to the warmth of my heart.
Far from my touch, far from my sight, but in
my thoughts forever; next to me
in imaginings way stronger than reality,
this is how my love dreams. Dear one, hear me;
Nothing can divide us, not even time or space,
for we are joined weightless, endless in an embrace.
