    Just how close is ...CLOSE
    ~so near at hand
    our eyes overlooked its nearness
    in search of distant things...
    A dear dream lay-- perchance
    to grow in dearness
    Had we only felt its wings astir...
    The very air our breathing fanned
    It was oh so near at hand
    Once many days ago
    we almost held it
    The love we so desired;
    But our shut eyes saw it not
    and fate dispelled it
    Before our pulses fired~ to flame,
    and errant fortune bade us
    stand...hand almost touching...hand
    I sometimes think
    had we both been discerning
    the by-path hid away
    from others' eyes had then revealed
    its turning to us, nor led astray
    our footsteps guiding us into
    love's land
    ...that lay so near at hand
    How close is ....CLOSE
    So near at hand, dear heart
    could we have known it
    from the very start
    or even throughout those
    dreamy hours
    Had either loved, or loving
    had we shown it
    RESPONSE had sure been ours
    for neither of us knew that
    heart could heart command
    and love so near at hand...
    What then availed the brandy's
    subtle glisten? V.S.O.P -
    Brothers, Christian~
    ~~We passed it blindly by
    And now what profit that we
    wait and listen? Each for the
    other's heart beat??
    The cry of love overlooked still lingers
    you and I sought heaven from afar
    we did not understand
    what once was
    so near at hand...
    VERY CLOSE
