Closer

Closer It’s pitch black, but I can still see

I can’t identify any hands, but I can feel you touching me

Joy I can’t explain it, it makes me smile without smiling

I can hear your voice, I just can’t decipher what you are speaking to me

I can smell your scent and it is very strong

At times the journey to get there seems so long

I can taste it and it’s very sweet

I know that I’m getting closer and I am looking forward to the day we meet

With each sunrise and sunset I’m thankful for the connection.
