You’re so close at hand but so far out of reach
I see your face in my mind but your smile has been lost
I wish you by my side, close, keeping me safe
You read into my thoughts and know me
You understand me, like everyone else,and get confused with words I speak
To understand me is simple to explain me is another story
To long for me is painful to have me by your side is heaven
So be patient, tolerant, giving and caring and in return I shall be loyal and faithful
