Near But Far

Near but far—
That is how we are.
Within each other’s arms
Our dreams, our hopes collide.
My head on your shoulder,
I rest in you, my dear.
Your head on my shoulder,
You grasp for what is real.
My arms around you knit,
You drive away my fears.
Your arms around me knit,
My fears demand your tears.
Near you I am settled.
Near me you’re unsettled.
That is how we are—
Near but far.
