Just Like…

 

Just like the air we breathe but cannot touch,
just like the sun that shines but is so far,
i know you are there somewhere someplace,
far away in distance that i cannot reach.

The moon casts its humble light in darkness,
the stars twinkle in a clear cloudless sky,
my eyes wander through the streets aglow,
seeking what is no longer there.

Thoughts and memories never let me be,
reminding me what is no longer with me,
i push away those feelings which haunt me,
they resist and persist till they win over me.

Longing for a new life with no worries and sorrows,
i seek a better place where no one knows who i am,
this new place gives me hope and i cling to it tight,
leaving behind everything that once was mine.

    very beautiful poem which made me feel a little bit sad. I read your blog occasionally,we don’t know each other before and after this moment, somewhat as the poem said “Just like the air we breathe but cannot touch,
    just like the sun that shines but is so far,
    i know you are there somewhere someplace,
    far away in distance that i cannot reach.” In China we call it “Yuanfen”,and we need thousands of “Yuanfen” to be friends in the real world. ^_^

      Thank you.Yes what you say is true.Sometimes distance does matter.Inspite of having other means of communication, the real touch or face to face is important.
