a poem

500 miles 

the distance from here to there 

the place i was 

to the place i am now 

this journey of life 

bright, sunny, dark, lonely, happy, sad 

days come and go, 

making years go by 

is is any wonder 

that one hello 

greets a thousand goodbyes? 

can a promise be kept 

in a span of 500 miles? 

on a trip to nowhere special 

before I close the door 

a voice whispers to my ear 

i'll be there in a week, don't worry 

with that promise, I breathe, I trust 

traveling 500 miles 

back to where I am now 

a week goes by 

two, three... 

where is that promise made to me? 

that pledge of being here? 

were the words, just words 

or just a way to let me go 

500 miles in the other direction? 

this broken heart cries 

for truth to trust 

amongst the clamor of lies 

tell me something, I can trust 

be there, hold me close, and let me know 

you care for me 

beyond that 500 miles 

that separate us 

dry my tears and let me know 

I matter to you 

I would do the same for you
