About the Poem

Sometimes life is hard to bear, when a friend is not there.

Between The Miles

Because existence can become severe
in one day,
just sense me and I'll be there.
In the minds eye,
I'm not so far away.
If you hold out your hand,
in the whispers,
I'll become the zephyr.
and besiege you.
If your eye's upon the stars,
in the crystalline darkness,
I'll become the moon.
And the light shall guide you.
If you rest upon the ground,
in the warmth,
I'll become the grass.
And embrace you.
If you turn outside,
in the wetness,
I'll become the rain.
An upon your forehead, kiss you.
If you free the air,
in the light of day,
I'll become the sun.
And smile for you.

Between the miles-
if you need me.
If you need a friend.
Let me be the friend, I want to be.

one word. beautiful.
this poem has touched me so much it has touched my heart because i had to move away from a place that i grew up in. and i had so many good friends that i left behind and this one girl that was my friend, but later found out was my cousin, i had to leave her and this peoms just reminds me of her so much.
my friend lives over a thousand miles away, your words brought tears to my eyes, this is how i feel about my friend and will send this to her. thank you for your wonderful words.
your words somehow captured what im feeling for my friend. im going to send this to her!
lovely of my best friends lives 200 miles away so it was very reflective..well done
Even though my hand didn't write the words, my heart spoke them for my one and only're to far away but our harts were never closer... to my 'moppie'
what a wonderful example of heartfelt friendship--I sent it to an old friend--beautiful!!!!
Great poem Heather. I hope you will continue with this God given gift and share with us all your ability.
I couldn't have said it better myself than the words did in this poem. My best friend just moved away to college, and I sent it to her because it reminded me of her. It really touched me, and I know it will do the same for her.
I think this poem is extremely beautiful and I have sent it to three of my best friends. They also enjoy it very much.
The voice speaks in this poem. The longing and offering of connection feels more personal.
