For Love

We are a country away
Miles and miles
But still I can close my eyes
And feel your arms go around me

An impossible chance for us both
To find what we have been looking for

Through rain and shine
Darkness and light
You will always have a little piece of my soul
Fastened around your neck.

And when our worlds seem so far apart
I will touch the beads and think of you
Living a life so different than mine
Connected by a single strand of summer love
But that strand, it is so strong
Fortified by our entwined souls
By days of obstacles
Forcing us together one by one

So don’t think it hard, love
The distance is not so bad
We can stay together through it all
If it’s meant to be
