On The Same Screen

And if we were both
in a movie right now
Filmed by an all seeing eye
The watchers would see

A shot of me in the kitchen
while I cook a dinner
Staring, melancholic eyes
that try to find you
in my inner world

Perry Como’s song
‘It’s impossible’ plays
in the background
For it is impossible
not to think of you

Then a shot of you
in another scene,
another time zone,
another country
sitting in your chair
staring, melancholic eyes
that try to find me
in your inner world

Those two scenes
that play at the same time
on the same screen
that erase any distance
between us
Those watchers would see
infinite truth
