So Far Away


So Far Away


Oh, my friend,

now, so far away.

Hopes dissolved in a field of poppies.

Fears built upon an edifice,

whose height could not exceed gravity’s pull.

Sorrows drowned in basins measured as drams or oceans.

I do not know which of these took you.

I only know there is now such a distance between us,

and only my own end of days can narrow it.
