How can i help remind you
of how important you are to me?
Such a great distance between us,
It’s like crossing the deep blue sea.
So I think of all that is beautiful
because of things so far away
The sun bathes the flowers in its light,
in the distance of its loving ray.
The ships in the ocean are grateful
for the moon way up in the sky.
The tides mesmorized by lunar bliss
dancing gently the boats drift by.
The clouds float so far away from us
passing by as if they don’t even care
till they gift us with cool sun showers
making a rainbow way up in the air.
We never even seen our ancestors
hundreds of years have passed away
if it wasn’t for thought of our future
where would we be today?
so you see just like all things in nature
we are beyond what we say and do
no matter the distance between us
there’s no distance in my Love for you.

I wrote this for my daughter several years ago and mailed it to her in a book format with pictures I drew to caption each stanza. The picture isn’t of her, she is much older now. But the image was too cute not to share! 🙂
