Poetry: Never that Far Away

By Monica C. Voskamp

Once captured your heart
Not too long ago
Time stood still for awhile
As you watched me
March on with life.

Not one to deter
Not one to give up
But one to believe
Miracles are the thing
That come into reach
For those who dare chase
Greater dreams.

You waited with wisdom
Kept giving the cue
Till one day I saw
The someone willing
To fight for me
The someone not too far
Out of reach.

I saw the man of loyalty
Of highest bred quality
I couldn’t help but notice
The attention you gave
Was much more than coy
Flirtatious curiosity.

It took just a bit
Maybe too long for you
But when I looked your way
I saw a possibility of hope
I saw a chance to believe
Love still would reach out
And give such good to me.

Now too often I catch my mind
Drifting to thoughts of you
Wondering how on earth
We could possibly be.
Yet when I catch your eye
I still find the truth
Love is never that far away.


Always believe. Always hope. Always love. 💓
