wrote this poem, because I think it is something we all feel at times.
How can I feel so far away?
By: Angie Sarich
As I wake to the morning, the cloud cover
Corrupts my mind
The sunlight has been hidden by rain
And all I can think to myself is
How can I feel so far away from you right now.
People talk, that’s the way they are, because they are human
But words they say hurt sometimes,
I think how could you have allowed such cold hearts
But then I think maybe I have fallen into a different world
Because you feel so far away.
I could climb the top of Mt. Everest
And I would only hear my echoes coming back to me
A sad silence that only I can hear
Brings tears to my eyes
We would spend hours talking at night
And I could just picture you
Around me, paying such attention to every thought
But as I sit at this moment, everything is just still
And I feel so far away.
I need to be wrapped in your arms
I need to hear your gentle, compassionate voice
I need to hear your footsteps behind me as I walk
I need to listen to the wind and hear your song
I need to just know you are there
I just need to know, distance doesn’t exist
I need to know how to find you in this fog in front of me.
You feel so far away, and yet maybe you are so close that
I am blinded by you,
I need your presence Lord, please open my eyes.
