Even Between Us With This Distance - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I am here to feel you.
Even between us with this distance,
Every emotion you have has become mine.

Even between us with this distance,
I hold you close with a touch I can not let go.
I wont.
Even between us with this distance,
I am here to feel you as if...
I too experience,
The silence of your personal loss...
Delivering to bring to you an agony that pains,
On your heavy and weighted burdened shoulders.

Even between us with this distance,
Only you pay the cost to bear...
There!

But I...
Even between us with this distance,
Care.
But it seems not enough to mend and heal your heart.

Even between us with this distance,
I am here to feel you.
Even between us with this distance,
Every emotion you have has become mine.
Even between us with this distance,
Every emotion you have has become mine.
Even between us with this distance,
I am here to feel you.
