Distant lover

Distant lover
A love so far
Out of reach
for my arms to embrace
Yet forever close
yes, real close
For you reside in my heart

As the sun goes down tonight
And the moon slowly rises in the sky
Listen intently to its silent whispers
As it brings tidings from my heart to yours

As you lay in your bed, my love
Don’t cry for me
Just know dear love
That I am forever close
For I reside in your heart

When morning comes
And the sun slowly rises in the sky
Bask in its rays
Close your eyes as they kiss your lips
For they carry the warmth of love
From my heart to yours

Distant lover
A love so far
Out of reach
for my arms to embrace
Yet forever close
yes, real close
For you reside in my heart
