“Distance”

A love poem for my wife, Betony.

“Distance”

My Love, there is a distance between us

The same found between all of us
Space, void from one to the next

And you know,
You and I have chosen to close the distance

To draw near each other
to know and to be known
lessening the gap between
two such people

It’s within the distance
there is fertile ground
to struggle, dig, anticipate
bare fruit

This space pushes, pulls, quakes
grows, prunes, and grows again

And You and I
have given ourselves over to this endeavor
to let it drive
and nurture us

the rest of our days.

Without it there would be
You and I
without
the birth of us
without the birth of

Love,
distance’s gift

And I am thankful,
for You and I

my Love

I’m thankful for us
