As a Geezer who lives alone, I have relationships that are only at a distance … on the internet. This is a poem about one of these:
A love poem in the sunset years
There is a Realm
Located not in space and time.
And there your soul and mine
Oh do not fret
That in the here and now
Or in the there and then
We were to other souls inclined
And love them yet.
The Author of All Grace
Has formed this special place
And named it just for us.
And ‘though I cannot touch your hand,
No physical thing for us is planned,
And ‘though the words we share are weak,
We text each other, rarely speak,
Together now, we truly swim
In waves of love
Sent from above
And it is Grand.
Know this, my dear,
And do not fear.
‘Though Time in this world will turn the page.
We’re joined forever in our realm
We shall not age.
