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
Heart sweetening joy
You are here beside me
Very near, yet so far.
