Distance

The sun is showing hints of its arrival,
It peaks through my bedroom window,
I open my eyes and it is the start of my day,
but almost the end of yours.

Here we are standing on this earth,
Under the same enthralling Moon,
Same blazing Sun,
and same glimmering stars.

What a shame it is,
to never see the same sight,
When we look up in the sky,

Funny how we are so far apart,
Yet so close in hearts,
Shared laughters and tears,
And hopes and fears.

How I long for that day,
When we breathe the same air,
When I get lost in your eyes,
When I feel your embrace,
And our hearts beat in sync.

  1. Nice poem :) Have you written much poetry aside form this? :) I think you captured well the feeling of people in long distance friendships.

    God bless,

    1. Heyy I haven't heard from you for a while! Thank you. I've actually written some poetry before but they are personal and I don't want to show it to the public yet.

    3. Yeah I got rid of my social media accounts. It was a distraction, and I just don't like the lifestyle that comes with being a "social media person". I actually wrote a blog post about it if you're interested :) http://christophergreen.weebly.com/blog/why-a-millennial-deleted-social-media-and-why-he-thinks-you-should-too

      I understand. Writing, probably poetry especially, can be VERY personal. No worries. But if you ever feel like sharing more, I'd love to read it :)

      I'd love to keep in touch by the way, if you're open :) (Don't feel bad if you don't want to haha, it's fine).

      God bless!

      In Christ,
