(You are there and I am here a million miles away)
I tell my ears to ache
Not for your voice or the sound of your coming,
But they do not heed.
I tell my eyes to languish
Neither for your smile nor the sight of your passage,
But they give no regard.
I tell my heart to yearn
Never more for you or for your resonance,
But it does not take note.
I tell my lips to cherish
Not our Love or your endless beauty,
But they do not notice.
I tell my soul not to cry,
I tell these hot tears not to fall,
Knowing that it will, hating that they must,
As we go our separate ways.
