Long Distance

Long Distance

To save our lives

The tough decision

Was taken by our leaders

to close borders

 

The gulf of our distance

widening even further

Before, I could catch a flight

Now, nothing is certain

 

Each time the network 

Acts up I’m worried

Each time we connect 

A bigger treasure

 

You’d have filled the house

With that raucous laughter of yours

Would have said you were

proud of me as I face this war

 

You’d have got me a stash

Of sanitizer, panty liners 

And midnight snacks

The things I forget to buy

 

We would have smiled together

Prayed, fought, kept the watch

I’d take a gap of metres

Over thousands of miles 


Isolating sucks

Many times over

in your absence.

I miss you, love
