This World Of Distance

This world is full of distance,
Full of ever-shifting minutes,
Hours, days, are lost to silence,
My own town is old and faceless.
How to live, with such expanses?
I’ll save your laugh, preserve your essence,
Bridge the gap and share your presence.

This heart must live on patience.
