FAR AWAY CAN STILL FEEL CLOSE (Poem #266)

Moving away from my family and friends.
Days are long, like having no ends.
 
So I sit and ponder just what can I do?
I think of ideas that are the usual few,
 
Sending cards, letters or a phone call;
There must be something else; it can’t be all.
 
I miss their faces while I sit and think.
Then this idea comes to me in a wink.
 
I’ll get a little book, the picture album kind,
Put in it pictures of family and friends I find,
 
Reminders then of birthdays and other dates;
To visit to a new home, a map inside waits.
 
A card with address and numbers of phone,
Now I look them up not feeling so alone.
 
Visiting, I update pictures or add a new face.
Not seeming far, I’m just at my home base.

Great expression of ones feelings of loss and lonelyness
Andreas Simic More than 1 year ago
One can never know in a lifetime of living what experiences one will oft repeat. Moving, being the new kid on the block, not knowing anyone can have it's ups and downs. Great piece.
