A World Away: a poem

Illustrated by KAREN ZHENG

Illustrated by KAREN ZHENG

I wish you weren’t a world away.
When I lie in bed at night,
I always stare out the window
at the dimming streetlight,
and I wonder what you are doing
under the shining sunlight.

When we see each other again,
will we be reminded of our bond,
or our gap?

Some call it reminiscing,
nostalgic,
living in the past,
but the truth is,
all I’m doing is
remembering
the one I will never forget.

Distance separates those who
aren’t meant to be together,
but it also brings those who
are meant to be,
together.

I wish we weren’t a world away
from each other,
but maybe we aren’t so far
apart after all.
