Poem: So Far Away
The times, the places, the people that I care about,
All seem so far away.
As if all are at a great distance and can only dimly
Be sensed...or imagined?
Perhaps that's all it is, just a dream, an imagining,
Of what I wished for.
Reality is near, and I can feel its weight. Happy times,
Seem so far away.
That's how it's been and is still, this thing, "life",
A weight to be borne.
Children run and play in the Sun, without a care
In a playground far away.
Nothing here is real, because I have chosen to live
In a land so far away.
Today is the nearest thing, near to yesterday and tomorrow,
And no real difference.
When the finest things were near I should have held them,
Not let them slip away...
So far away
