Distance

The chill of winter holds tight

Accompanied by the savage wind.

The palled sun gives no warmth.

Does it light your way?

The distant hills bear

No sign of your trek.

My heart clutches thinking

Of the dangers you face.

Are you still there

My Beloved?

I scan the distance

As I always do.
