The space in between us

It's not an inch or mile that separates us
It's not a physical distance one can measure
But some impenetrable space
Seems to stretch out between us, forever

What would it be like to know you
Your tase, your touch, your smell?
To share your thoughts and dreams
And all your fears and doubts dispel?

I long to soar above this wide divide
Yet I'm afraid to fall from the sky
I long to cross this wide open gulf
Yet I'm too nervous to even try

Should I leap in faith and hope to land
Safely by your side?
Or will I fall short and suffer pain
Because the gap between us is too wide?

Sometimes I look, and in your eyes I see
A brief glimpse of recognition
We hold our gaze for a precious moment
A wordless conversation

Emotions are never voiced out loud
Fear causes a hasty retreat
We reach out with our smiles and dreams
But our fingers never meet

So we sit and stare across this chasm
Our feet dangling over the edge
Staring at each other with longing
Hoping, yearning, praying for a bridge
