You Are So Far Away

Some nights
Even though you are by my side
You are so far away
At times
I drift
A vessel cast into the sea of self-doubt
Filled with waves of fear
Fear of what lies on that distant horizon
Fear of what mistakes I will make
Fear of the consequences of mistakes made
Fear of losing the things that matter most
Fear of losing you

But that fear is removed
When I look in your eyes
When I run my hands through your silken hair
When I hold you close and feel your soft form pressed against mine

You are my anchor
A gentle breeze to blow me back to safety
And the warm, sandy shores to which I tether my wayward vessel

Thank you.

    1. Thank you very much. I am so glad that you enjoyed it. It was a difficult piece, and started out much less positive, a reflection on distance and alienation. Fortunately, with time and further reflection, the light came through, and the conclusion redeemed the beginning. 🙂
