I just want to know,
how far this poem will go.
Will it reach you at sea?
Will you be thinking of me?
Will you hear it in your sleep?
Will you think about about it when you weep?
Or maybe when you're too weak to speak.
If you travel the world, will you let it follow you?
Will you give it a chance?
Or just pass it off as a last slow dance?
Like a boy who has never known true romance.
Will it mean something to you?
Or will it leave you with nothing but a senseless clue?
That one that leaves you not knowing what to do.
I want to know,
how far this poem will go,
Hopefully far enough to reach you,
Keep you warm and hold you.
Prove to you that words can travel miles away,
Strong enough to make you stay,
Soft enough to whisper away,
That I miss you each and everyday...
