Alone Again

Love at a distance
so much safer than up close
but so incomplete for all of that
yet still we tend to push away
the ones that we love most
when touch can heal
so many things

And at night
as starlight shines
and moon glows softly down
we wonder, in our loneliness
what it is that we've done wrong

and rain falls from the skies
as tears fall from our eyes
a touch of love within the wind
and then
we go to sleep alone again
