Painting An Embrace




I wish to hold you when you're anxious            
And tell you that there isn't a thing
I wouldn't do to see you smile
But you're so far away
Farther even
Than the farthest dream
 
And the faintest star on the night's starry face
I'm not made that powerful
To travel so far
But my care may
It can gently lull you
When you're sleepless
Tell me hence
When your brow sweats
And your heart sinks
It's for such moments
That I exist
 
It's to hold you when you're anxious
That I now live

  7. A tender and delicate embrace that is haunting nonetheless. I loved the lines:
    "But you're so far away
    Farther even
    Than the farthest dream..."
