Years ago, I saw you miles away.
Too far, to imagine this closeness
As I moved towards you, you moved forward.

Maybe you ran at some point.
You were in such an unimaginable distance.
I thought you were gone or never existed.

Why did you play the distance prank!
Your movement have become so sluggish.
I see you crystal clear, too clear to doubt your existence.

I am talking from a distance not more than a feet to you.
With open arms, I await your hug.
