Between Us - Poem by Lillian Susan Thomas

The distance between you and me
As we swim in the lake
Is only our breath.
The distance between you and the sun
Is the whole sky.
The distance between me and the setting sun
Is only my outstretched arms.
See! I touch fingers of gold,
And you braid it into my blazing hair
As you comb your fingers through it.
The distance between the setting sun and us
Is only our skin.
