I see you on the ledge across the abyss.
I see the pain on your face.
I struggle to reach you.
but every attempt is in vain.
I try throwing a rope…
you cannot lift your fingers to grasp it.
You see me…
but you can no longer recognize me.
How it hurts.
I long to grab you, and walk you to safety
but you cannot feel my touch.
My touch goes right through you as if
i am made of ghostly material.
No effect upon you.
My smile goes out unreturned…
everything I could give returns unopened.
For you cannot move , or feel or see those who love you.
you are stuck.
I long so much to save you.
But only you can save you.
I wait helplessly…for you to be able to feel me once more.
And I you….
Together while apart we wait for the darkness to pass…
