Distance cannot stop my love
From seeking your heart’s strings.
Our souls communicate past death,
And mine to yours still sings.
The great expanse of heavens
Can’t keep our love apart.
For still I feel you near me;
I sense you in my heart.
My mind’s eye beckons you at will.
I see you in my dreams at night.
I hold you in my fantasies
And feel your kiss at morning’s light.
You may be far away in fact,
And for your touch my body yearns,
But in my soul, I hold you close,
And love you with a force that burns.
