Though I say we’re together not apart
No matter where we are, I’d best admit
Physically here’s more glorious, my dear heart;
We’re human and we’re lovers and that’s it.
We have reserves; for separation’s sting
To smart less we have garnered strength
Over decades – heart’s always will take wing
Along the line between, whatever its length.
What scissors or what saw could cut the tie?
Why, none. No storm could wash away the line.
But still, to have you sitting just close by
Is heaven – and I think it’s heaven’s design
So, yes, though I could phone or write a letter
To have you only steps away is better.
