Destiny and Distance

Such span of place and time
has made my heart weary
Nay, not weary of love
But weary with love
My love! how I long to be
close to you just now
close again, forever more
I never knew my heart
could grow weary
for loving too much
- without release!
But at long last
I grow weary of being
unable to love you
just as I am meant.
How harsh! How cruel!
For destiny to wait til
such long last - and then
to hold us prisoners
of love and distance.
I would give it all
to be with the one who
loves me as no other can
and none before ever has.
