HOW TO MEASURE THE DISTANCE

 

To breathe is not a choice

It is a necessity of life

When I am truly open

My breath

Includes what I see

 

Again a necessity of life

The sunrise in the morning

To the closing in

Of darkness at night

Even then dreams

 

Open a whole new world

Based on the twinkle of stars

The glow of the moon

I wring my hands

I am in anguish

 

I think of you

Consider the distance

Between us

Since the distance is incalculable

I will need something

Very special for this measurement
