Time & Distance

 

Take it as it comes.

It’s never going to get easier.

Strength comes and goes,

it’s the will that drives.

 

This time of year

sure as Hell

doesn’t make it better,

but it can be,

in the lights we strung

together.

 

Separated from our families,

friends, and neighbors,

we rely on to get by,

when we need people the most,

still living under the same sky.

 

I ask myself daily,

if I understand the reasons why?

We can’t exist

afraid to live,

afraid to die.

 

Day by day

we make it,

but we’re just running out the clock.

Waiting,

hesitating,

too long to make the shot.

 

I reach out,

and I know you’re there.

Reaching out to me,

divided by the very space

that made us scared.
