Distant Yet Close

Distant yet close

A phrase all the more indifferent

To a young child unlearned about the closeness of family


Life gave it meaning once my sister moved from us
And that distance surely changed me

I appreciated the work she put in for her child
And all the calls she made to us to inform us of her new lifestyle

We made plans with all due haste
To visit her and see the child's face

And those weeks flew all too soon
I have newfound love and care
The warmth in my heart over there
Hangs over me, shining as bright as a new moon.


This poem is about: 
My family



A poet's new love for family, due to his sister moving.
