Long distance lover,
Never coming close enough
To risk a true commitment.
Seems you're expert with words
But still a novice at real emotions.
Each time I try to touch your heart
You quickly lock it away from view,
Yet you soon cautiously re-appear
As though urging me to try once more.
Perhaps as you grow to trust me again
We'll close the distance between us at last.
