probably (the distance between two hearts)...

Would the fish miss the waves
 if they were taken from the sea?


And would the moon miss the sky
 if it were caught up in the trees?


Will the flowers miss the sunshine
 if the world lost all its bees?


And will a blind man miss his sight
 when he can no longer see?


And would a bird miss its cage
 when it is finally set free?


And if a door is left unlocked
 does it miss its key?



But not nearly as much,
my dear /

As I am missing thee!!
