The Distance Between Us

1 Review

The war has begun,
The nightmare is here,
Our relationship has cracked
and in my eye is a tear.

The war has taken us
to different places,
None of our footsteps have left any
Traces.

I went to Auschwitz,
You went to Kemna,
We always dreamed of going to
Vienna.

The tears came down,
We shared our sorrow.
We truly did believe there was never going to be
Another tomorrow.

I dreamed of you,
I saw you at night,
You told me we would get out of this place,
I hoped you were right.

I closed my eyes and made a wish,
That you would be here and we could share a dish.

I would sweat all day,
And at night I would say,

Someday,
The Nazis will
Pay.

Author Notes: The Holocaust was such a sad time. It separated so many people, and so many families. :(
