Distance won't separate 
our hearts 

the bond is 
too strong 

Our history 
connects us 

as bones 
connect limbs

  1. Penny, this poem fits my thoughts right now in the missing of my son, whom I haven’t seen since Christmas. Yesterday I cried for missing him. Your words speak to me. Thought physically distanced, we remain tethered, not only via history, but also via bones… Thank you for this poem.
