What steps must I take?
I want to be a vital part of the world.
I love you and cannot give up.
Each time I reach this place,
I fill with fear and sorrow.
I want to see you despite the miles.
I smile when you speak.
Your voice can bring forth the sun.
The clouds part from west to east.
I laugh at your silly jokes
I am proud to be your friend,
I hope I can make you laugh.
I will see you soon enough.
We will dance with each other then.
I feel hope and I want to share it with you.
