So Near Yet So Far
We met at a bar,
Late in the night.
Where the drinks flowed freely
And the music was loud, so loud.
We met at the bookstore,
In the middle of spring.
You wanted to check out Shakespeare
And I wanted you, just you.
We met at the pool,
In the blazing hot summer.
You wanted to get a tan
And I wanted a swim, just a swim.
We met at the guitar shop,
Amidst the pouring rain.
You wanted to play "November Rain"
And I wanted to feel your hands, just feel you.
We met at a football game,
In the middle of the roaring crowd.
You were screaming at a Barca goal
And I wanted to see you cheer, just cheer.
We met in my dreams,
In a dark room interspersed with halo light.
You were moving farther away from me
And I wanted to hold on to you, just hold on.
