Despairing Desire
Grant Christensen

Shes right in front of me, yet I cant see her
I know her words, yet I cant hear her
I reach out my hand, but theres nothing there
I keep drifting deeper, into despair
I long to meet her, yet I know it cannot be
I scream out loud, "Why God?", "Why Me?"
As I fall into despair
I realize no ones there
Though I long to hear her voice
I'm not even given a choice
If only I could touch her lips
With one, sweet kiss
I'd give away my world
Theres nothing that I'd miss
