By Charles Robert Lindholm

I don’t know
how You can see me
from half a world away
and yet I know, You know me

from the whispered words you say
And my heart it listens
to Your voice
in the messages
You send
Sweet Whispered
that I’ll always be Your Friend

And my Soul it rests
with the softest sound
of singing from Your heart
and though we know
we’re far away

we’ll never be apart

  2. This is poignantly beautiful. A well penned piece that carries credence in every line. And these words,

    “and though we know
    we’re far away
    we’ll never be apart..”

    My muse and I are hooked to it, and are working on something. Can I link your post to this piece once done?
