Distant Love

Looking into your eyes,

Long has it been since I saw them,

Your photo held dear to my heart,

Your voice a trailing memory,

But, still my love remains,

Growing each day,

As you grow behind curtains that never open,

Your stage a mystery to me,

Growing into a man,

Your the star that never dulls,

I pray your brave lad,

I pray your stoic,

I pray your steadfast,

I pray your course never alters,

I look into your eyes my dear boy,

Almost a man,

Wondering what teenage angst,

Has you pressed against the wall today,

I love you my son,

Even though distance keeps us far away.
