For Daisy...

5000 Miles

 

5000 miles is something

 

Two separate worlds

 

Of friends and foes

 

Of happiness and woes 

 

8000 kilometres

 

Of mountains and oceans

 

Of deserts and cities

 

An epic trek

 

Across the globe

 

Across a gulf of cultures

 

There may be ways

 

To read and write

 

To speak and listen

 

But take note

 

He sleeps before she wakes

 

She’s busy when he tells

 

And who can forget

 

The soft smooth skin

 

The gentle kisses

 

No call compensates

 

For his warmth

 

For her ecstasy

 

Oh don’t despair

 

The time will come

 

The wait will end

 

Know that every day

 

He thinks of her

 

She thinks of him

 

Beautiful memories

 

Of holding hands

 

Of entangled legs

 

They are apart

 

But together

 

Connected and sharing

 

All joys and sorrows

 

Her world is his

 

His world is hers

 

For months on end

 

He’ll be working to see her

 

She’ll be saving to hold him

 

600 pounds for 12 hour flights?

 

A hefty sum

 

A small price to pay

 

To see one’s lover

 

A bottom of the abyss

 

A realisation of pure bliss

 

For two hopeful hearts

 

Resolute in love       

        

5000 miles is nothing     

Holding Hands

Walking beside you

The bag is passed to his brother

Now free, he shuffles over

You leave him there to linger

 

Impatiently he prods you

A cheeky brush on the rear

It doesn’t go unnoticed

A goddess comes to greet

 

He gets to feel all over

So soft, so smooth

She rubs up and down

So silky, so sexy

 

A gentle grip

She feels so safe

He’s overjoyed

It’s love at first touch

 

Now interlocking fingers

I forget where I am going

The only thing that matters

Is I’m holding your hand
