Through tornadoes, hurricanes, and blizzards —
I’ve driven these miles to find out who I am,
only to find that I love you still.
I’ve flown these miles to escape from where you are,
only to find that you are here still.
The wet ships increase their speed —
The desert roads release their tumbleweeds —
There is water and land between you and me
but our hearts magnetized even at Distance’s greed
and Proximity’s need.
I do what I can to be happy, polite
In thought — with feel,
I give you love and I give you light
And with a lover’s will
I shed your love — with the fear that fate is sealed.
