Distance

Mary Helen Trujillo 1987 (Colorado)



When distance lingers through time
And a warm touch grows cold
I try to remember when you were mine
How far does the distance grow

A sweet caress now haunts me
As I lie alone at night
There used to be such passion
Why is distance so unkind

So near yet so far you seem
The hourglass loses time
For now there could only be dreams
Where distance fades in the night

The wanton carelessness of love
Provokes the cruel beats of heart
If only I could answer in the end
When does distance cease to start
