Today, You're far away

Today, You're far away

A Poem by Nereus Matthias

Today, You're far away
Closer than the thoughts
Closer than the memory
yet so far away.

And I don't know why
like a colorless cloud you shied
like a remorseless hawk, you flew away

I couldn't ask you why
and you just walked away
Ran away
I hoped you would shine
my morning's like the dawn herself
like her first ray

I talked to you
but just couldn't say
Today, You're far away.

Tonight, I am here, near you
Don't slip away
Don't leave me like you have
Cause I never left you in the way

Though our paths are divided now
Can I just ask you to stay?
Today, you're far away

the subject is raw, good job on that. I think you could tone down the repetition. The 'remorseless hawk' is a cool image.
