By Charles Robert Lindholm

Separated by time and space

denied the warmth of Her gentle embrace

Her words they kiss me, though I know

I will never touch Her face


She’s not from my time

she’s not in this place

but I love the photo

of Her smiling face


Trading messages

that fly at night

words with wings

at the speed of light


And sometimes they touch

each other in flight

the sweetest moment of all,

a moment sublime

an instant in time

it’s the thrill

of Real Time

with Her

 Inspired by Long Distance romances and internet messages passing at different times of the day and the thrill of being able to catch Real Time (online at the same time) once in awhile.  Having married after meeting on I know about Real Time.
