Gone to Distant Lands


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.
