the distance

your name is the distance
between life and death
my own existance
my next breath
your name is the distance
between laughter and tears
my reason for happiness
the cause of my fears
your name is the distance
between nothing and everything
the matter of my hopes
the substance of my dreams
your name is the distance
between love and life
your name is the distance
between man and wife
