I am participating in Five Minute Friday again over at The Gypsy Mama.
The rules? Write for 5 minutes without stopping to correct or edit.
Today's topic? Distance.
Distance is all very relative, you see
What's far for you may be close for me.
It also depends on the time and day
and how you chose to go your way.
My bed seems impossibly far away
When I have 3 kids to sleep before me at the end of the day
But then I can honestly say with heart
That sometimes people are never far apart
I have friends here and there around the world
In Canada is one very special girl
In France you will find and boy and his baby
And in Russia is a new family in the making
These friends are far apart by miles
But just thinking of them brings on the smiles
They are never far from my heart and mind
And I know that they feel for me in kind
So the distance between us is no big thing
It's just a shout through the heartstrings
So distance can't really be defined
What's far from home is always close in heart and mind
And that is what I have to say
On this five minute Friday!
Whew! That's it for me...let's look and see what fell from my 'pen' today!
