It is amazing
like observing a bird fly
in slow motion
so close
I never knew
someone could love me
this strong
and as pure as the time
when sunlight first touches
earth in a day
maybe that is what I couldn’t imagine
because everything’s
too good to be true
but here you are with me
giving me all
the strength in the world
and holding my hand
across this distance
and honey, you proved it
that for us
distance is nothing
but a stupid number
with a unit.
