Six Feet…

Locked down in our separate spaces
Both of us battle our common fears
Anxiety writ large on our faces
Six feet… can feel like six light years

I want to hug you and hold your hand
I want to wipe away your tears
But I might hurt you, I do understand
Six feet… can feel like six light years

I can’t caress you or stroke your hair
I can’t comfort you, even hold you near
Just know, my darling, that I really care
Six feet… can feel like six light years

I’ll cradle you in my arms, ease your pain
But we must wait till this scourge disappears
When it’s gone we’ll dance in the rain again
Six feet… can feel like six light years

This distance between us feels like an abyss
In my every dream your face appears
Darling, your touch is what I really miss
Six feet… can feel like six light years

Have courage, dear, we will get through this
Have faith and pray that the storm soon clears
Stay safe now baby, let me blow you this kiss
Six feet… can feel like six light years
