Far, Yet Near


You’ve been away from some time
Dulled has not the shine
Life is still sweet and joyous
The path comfortable, not arduous

I just have to close my eyes
For you to appear
As the light shines in my minds skies
Your memory plays sans any fear

All is well and so it is
With or without you
You, I do not miss
For, etched is your essence true
