From A Distance - Poem by Britt Sahlin

I'm staying in vacuum
Nothing happens like it used to
The time isn´t standing still
It´s just up

I don´t stand here to observe
Although I see the changes
I feel them
Without taking part in them

I can´t reach anyone out there like before
No one is on the same wavelength
The frequency is different
And no one cares to tune in the correct one

The old common channel isn´t lost
But taken away deliberately
From the outside
I saw it happen
But didn´t get any response
In my attemps to fix it

I see the world going on
Just like before out there
Going on without me following it
I stand still in my vacuum
Obsering my dear ones living happily
Wishing they´d miss me
And tune in like before

But that will never happen
And the only joy I got
Is to see their joy
From a distance
Not in time, nor in space
Just a distance in between us
