The Distance – Written Saturday 3rd August 2002 (Aged 27)

The Distance

i do not notice the distance
until we talk,
and through the sound of the keyboard
i know you are far away
and i know that a piece of me
is far from here
but when we talk it becomes real
a little piece of me
is far from this land
a part of me that is rarely known
and few will ever understand
tears do not bring people home
when we talk,
i always notice part of me is alone
tonight would have been a good night
for a few drinks and a late night talk
i do not notice the distance
until we talk,
then what i am missing
is explained and the love is easily caught
