IN BETWEEN (#4 Distance)

Distance can be measured
Not in miles, 
But by smiles and tears;
Not on a street map, 
But through years: the days and nights
And the difference
In between.

A warm embrace remembered,
Makes separation abate,
But the cold chill of a friendship lost
Reaches right into the heart:
A reminder 
Of a much greater divide

You haven't moved, or traveled 
To parts unknown and yet 
The distance
In between us
...has grown.
