Distance

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

and days without you are like saltless

oceans and saline desert sands, but I

will never cease to be soothed by your

voice on the end of a telephone wire,

crackling like the flames that engulf this 

newly impassioned soul, and the words

tripping off my quivering lips will ring true

until the worlds that separate coincide once

more and I see your face again — remember

that I thank The Lord every day for you.
