So far away

So far away

It took me so long-

Though not without reason,

To be here.

 

It took you ages,

Before you could see, really see,

What lies just beside you.

 

It took a lifetime,

Of dreads and denials,

For you to accept.

 

It took me decades,

To realize that home,

Is really where the heart is.

 

So far away we’ve been,

So little space between us

To rejoin.

 

Yet here you are in all your glory,

And here I am, unbelievably,

And there goes the so far away.

I love this. It's beautiful, and it's something I think everyone can relate to.
