To feel your gaze upon my skin
your love caressing me within
with no tomorrow, only today
I hold on dearly to an instance
when in your eyes I love to stay
across an ocean in our distance.
And love becomes a quiet smile
when gaze upon we stay a while
no words to speak of what we are
a distant dream, a wish, a plea
when we are close and yet so far
and understanding we let it be.
But with your eyes across a screen
you say so much within the gleam
of hope reflected on your face
when love alone does not sustain
a life that you already embrace
while here alone I will remain.
