Close, Yet So Far - Poem by Matthew Bui

Two worlds with not a bond, yet faith entwined.
One dims the yellow sun, yet oblivious to such charm.
One dreams of newly Spring, yet Autumn still lingers on.
Winter’s chilling wind ceased not, yet faith presents a Summer’s start.
A smile within arm's reached, yet a million miles apart.
While one brooks a temporal spark;
The other search for an ever fixed mark.
Two paths will soon depart.
One still oblivious to his heart.
One will reminisce God's lovely art.
Two worlds of not a kind, yet one has fallen blind.
Cupid’s flying dart has erroneously pierced his foolish heart.
