How far is far?
Long winding road is too bliss to think,
When you outreach your arms and reach the star,
All you see is nothing but just some blink.

How far is far?
Times tick-rocking and it's counting,
Lifespan is just like a jar,
Refill it with hopes,faith and comes blessing.

How far is far?
The thought of this word seems too impossible,
The inner war push you till behind the bar,
But until you discover it then is incredible.

How far is far?
Prints of footsteps of yours will determined it,
Your believes and foundation as strong as the tar,
Certainly you will reach the star at far bit by bit.

    I really like this one, although I think it might be more powerful, it you put the refrain "how far is far?" at the end of each verse, instead of the beginning of each one. and I would simply get rid of the first one, and start it with the word "Long." Just my thoughts. hugs, catie :)

    How far is far? When the mere nearness of you Sends me spinning into orbit celestiary Every breath gives a rose it's dew And the closeness of angels, vestiary Love to you my dear, may angels leave their footprints on your heart, blessings from Vie
