Almost Together - Poem by Reginald Goodridge

We are seldom together
Fighting time, responsibility
Slow years churn from quick minutes
Truly a miracle, we've found our commonality

To exist, though far apart
Your words I inhale, still sweet, kind
Angered at this distance, alone
Surrounded by people, each other we find

I've held on for eons, so long
This bleeding, hot and heavy heart I bare
Ev'ry now and then we connect
A quick laugh, closed eyed, moment to share

Such are the schemes of things
Great Jehovah makes no mistake
And I cherish every single molecule that is you
I'd prefer to love, keep falling, even without fate

So please be there for a moment, right now
And we will work this distance, someway, somehow
Stand firm through life and surroundings of doubt
We will work this distance, someway, somehow
