LOST SOULS

My heart aches tonight
For the balm of your love
For the safety of your knowing
And mine
But can two souls ever
Truly know
Touch each other
In the distance
I see a hand
Reach out
But find I cannot reach
It is too far
And too late
Far too late
The moment has gone
And you are lost to me
I know
That all must end
That fear took its toll
I took the safer way
And now I am lost

  1. Lovely poem… You have captured a sentiment I have tried many times to convey. The distance between us, the inexplicable distance in time and space and something else altogether inaccessible just the same… Great piece.
