Very near, yet so far

Amid the mighty waves of peculiar sea I stood still waiting for you to see me You took hold of the little girl's shivering hand And made her dance among the waves away from the shore sand I remained silent, building a sand castle, Collecting shells and was finally worn to a frazzle. I noticed your footsteps and felt your breath With divine love, I walked to you with a pearl wreath. You caught hold of my hand and played with my finger At once, the mighty wave greeted my heart with new zinger It's the joy Eye-kissing joy Heart sweetening joy You are here beside me Very near, yet so far.
