December 31, 2009 - A Mile



A Mile

Space is so essential
And a necessary thing
An inch of you I may ask
But I do not need a mile
I need so very much
To see your sweet, sweet smile

I long to hear the voice
That is music to my ears
To hear those whispered
Words of love
It seems like it's been years

Please take back this inch
You've given me
It's turned into a mile
Take it back
I miss you so
If just for a little while

- Neva Flores 2009

Great poem Neva. An little sometimes grows into more than expected. I know that feeling.

"Please take back this inch
You've given me
It's turned into a mile."
