I cried a river of tears  that leads from me to you;  I tried to chart a route  that would take me back to you.  But the river became an ocean  and the distance between us grew;  still my little raft is unable  to carry me to you.  The further that I traveled  and with every new days' sail;  made me a little more able  to accept my life should I fail.  Alas, I've reached an island  I've charted somewhere in between;  And baptized it "agreements"  that were made between you and me.  Its' a place of inner peace  that comes from just knowing  that the distance between us us joined  by friendship and inner growing.
