I Am Closer To You - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You do not have to be alone.
You choose to be that way.
You do not have to be on your own.
That's the choice you made to obey.

I have never been that far away,
From you that you could not reach.
I have never been that far away,
From you if you needed to hear me speak.

You do not have to be alone.
You choose to be that way.
You do not have to be on your own.
That's the choice you made to obey.
And I understand you,
More that I can say.

You choose to be that way.
And I am closer to you,
Than you ever suspected you knew!
It is almost as if we are 'one'...
Not two.
