I would like to hold your hand
A simple request that can’t be met
Days and days between our time
People and places between our lives
I write you letters, you sing me songs.
Maybe this time next year our distance won’t be so long.
I can wait with you on my mind.
Rather feel your skin against mine.
I whisper I love you,
your secret to keep.
You hold me closer like I am you.
Your skin is soft,
your face is sweet, your hands are gentle,
your voice deep.
I listen close to every word.
I wrap your words around my waist.
