As I Slept Deep In Sleep Beside You - Poem by James McLain

How far could you go with out me?
As I slept, deep in sleep,
I drempt the same dream beside you.
Awake in the light of day
those long days
were so very noisy so we didn't speak.

With out you minutes are like hours, days
are like weeks
and months are like years while the pain of
breathing leaves me despondent
as reason and logic like most childhood friends
that we had have moved away or died.

From the back I have seen others like you
and have on more than one occasion reached out
and touched a shoulder their hair styles
were so much like yours and they said that
they understood I left walking backward ashamed.

I know that you can never come back
not the way that you left
even so time has passed so much so
I can not help but think how great the distance
that is now between U.S.
