F - Far Too Far Away

If I were to travel
to far off Spain,

would you wait for me?
Would I see you again?

What about Sweden
or Mexico?

Would you ask me to stay
or let me go?

I’d like to visit the pyramids.
and see the Chinese wall.

View Paris in springtime,
Or east coast colors in fall.

Mind, I do not ask permission
I travel where I will.

Across the town, around the globe
Returning to you still.

“Just don’t go too far,”
is what you’d say.

But, honestly, love,
what’s too far away?
