How many ...

April 30, 2009

How many steps is a walk in the park When that walk is without a friend? Without a friend, even a very short walk Seems tiring and without an end.

How many tears are shed deep inside When friends have to stay apart? The outward smiles may be bright and wide But the tears are in the heart.

How many days can one take the pain Of not being able to meet? Each day, one should think, brings one closer again To the time of meeting…achingly sweet.

How many times must one think and long For the distant friend’s touch? In every word that’s heard, in every sad song… One misses the other…so much.

This is for two friends who are forced to live on different continents. With all my love.
