The Distance Over Boundaries

to whom do i plant
such divine thoughts
in the form of admiration
and affection?

for like this flower
that blooms before me
do i feel the blossom
within my heart?

if in a bond of friendship,
may this warmth go on
to rekindle, and keep
our souls restful and calm…

like a clear shimmering lake
like a blue open sky
like a comforting fireplace…

where the mild glow and
its embers ensure a warm
light that may continue
to burn in the dark, distant night.

in my thoughts
i see you, ever so near
yet so far off into the horizon…

distance may matter not
in the stillness of
the night air
that fails to chill…

my heart glows with
a gratitude that keeps me warm and safe
in a harbour of kindness

days may pass

the nights may be long

even in a world twisting
and turning, full
of pain, sorrow… sadness

a sense of joy and hope appears

and i keep a silent smile
for the friend whom
i keep within my heart…

within such calm reflection
within such dreamful thoughts
within this silence that reassures
me of my dreams

though our friendship
may burn like a tiny candle
in the distance, or
that piece of driftwood
on the seas of randomness
and change…

just knowing
you’re in this world

that your smile is like a shining beacon
that i keep within and treasure so
and hold tight within this moment…
