Gone to Distant Lands
There is distance hidden there
in your half-closed eyes.
You are off and travelling
far away on your own blue seas
leaving me behind on these shores
watching your sails disappear
beyond the far horizon.
You are gone to distant lands
while I wait for you to return
to come back home with satisfied eyes
to stretch out languidly
in front of the fire while you dream
of being back again in those places
faraway, where I have never been.
