The Nearness of Away

Oh yes I have felt youstanding far away
Though you be miles
even complete continents

As staring at the night sky
Through the chill
It is your warmth
Keeping me

As so often has been known
Your thoughts are of me
As mine of you
Like the tree clutching its leaves
Late into the autumn
You hold me and I will not go

It is as if the very earth
knew the weight of your feet
And passed the indentations
On to me

Oh that I would hear
The soft hum of your voice
Stretching easily through
The memories of what is
when you are close but too far

The Nearness of Away
