“What Separates Us Is Gone” A Poem

What Separates Us Is Gone 
Oh, the joy I feel
In knowing
That the span of time
That separates us
Is drawing
To a close

Years to months
Months to weeks
Weeks to days
Days to hours
Hours to minutes
Minutes to seconds
Seconds to now

Now we are together
For the span of time
That separated us
Has drawn to a close

Oh the joy I feel
In knowing
That the distance
That separates us
Is disappearing

Kilometers to hectometers
Hectometers to decameters
Decameters to meters
Meters to decimeters
Decimeters to centimeters
Centimeters to millimeters
Millimeters to here

Here we embrace
For the span of distance
That separated us
Has disappeared

Oh, the joy I feel
In knowing
That thanks to love
Forever
And always
The time
The distance
That separates us
Is gone

No matter how long it is
Until we see each other again
No matter how far apart we are
From each other’s arms
We are not alone
For love
Has demolished
That which separates us
