Out of Reach

“The sea divides us,

The path is long, narrow and tiring.

I am low on cash,

But my heart is filled with your memories.

I try to find ways to reach you,

But all in vain.

I want to surprise you,

See the disbelief expression on your face,

And thereupon hug you tightly without turning back.

If I had the means I would’ve done everything in my power to see your beauty,

But alas, I’m locked in my cage of life, poverty, problems and duty.

You might be out of reach,

But I believe that one day, distance will be just a word in our unceasing speech.”

— To the one I’ve been longing for
