Out of Reach
Did you ever want someone but you keep coming up short?
No matter how hard you try they are just out of your reach.
There are times when you can touch them,
learn to have and enjoy them
then they go away once again out of your reach.
It’s like walking down parallel paths
that sometimes wind very close
you can get hold of what you want
then they move away
and all the time you look across
see the object of your affection
but you can’t have it.
I guess it’s like that saying
“two ships that pass in the night”
I can relate it to that song
Sometimes what you want
your not ready for
or they are not ready for you.
So you just keep coming within reach of each other
enough to let them know your still there.
Maybe next time when those paths cross one another
you’ll be smart enough to make the right decision
and help those paths become one.
Then you can have that person for more than just a fleeting moment.
