During the missing being of your presence,
Memories then congregate and concentrate.
In mind they desire to give some sustenance,
Clinging into the depths of images and seeing.
Connecting with a silence while remembering,
Distance inevitably struggles to relay all detail.
Voices exchange sentiment without closeness,
Without your touch all rests in an isolated state.
In absentia separates opportunities in this time,
Sacrifices between here and there unite futures.
Togetherness is brimming with loving intentions,
Absence buoys temporal and distant separation.
