The Stars Seem So Far

Lying on my bed I watch
the dark night through
the open skylight
The thought of you
accompanies me

And the stars seem so far tonight
My love, where are you
Miles of clouds drift between us,
cover up and hide

But clouds can disappear
in an instant
When clear sight is found in the heart
where stars are always known
to be there
You, I cannot unsee,
cannot unfeel

What is invisible to the eye
requires inner knowing
and faith
