But What Is The Distance?Sometimes there is more distance on a bed, where two people lay in the darkness, breathing nervously and staring at the ceiling, wondering who is the stranger laying beside them, who is that person with whom they have gone to bed for the past twenty years, and from whom they know nothing.
Sometimes even when being surrounded by friends and family, people feel lonely, and there is a huge distance separating their souls from the rest of the world.
What is the distance then when we cannot always measure it by miles, or by time? How do we know when someone is near or far from us?
I have never touched or held you... but any notion of distance was completely broken when I let you into my tunnel, and loved you. Whatever miles or other borders, real or imaginary, were destroyed in my mind, and now all I care about is you... and me... together. We are together even when I cannot talk to you anymore.
Those hours that you shared with me so generously were the greatest gift in the world, you showed me how to live and believe again in love, in hope, in our children. You helped me turn on the switch again of my will, and endless patience... I love you so much. I love you forever. All I care about is you.
