You Rise

You are not here
You are far away

And for every bite
Of this croissant I take
You move, imperceptibly
5000 miles

People are chattering
Barging in isles
But you float above them
You’re light as skimmed milk

And for every sip
Of this coffee like silk
You’re rolling in air currents
Heavenly smile

Greet the wild migrators
Play for a while
But you float above them
You rise like fresh bread

And for every inch
Of this butter I spread
You slip through my fingers
My universe grasp

I struggle to reach you
I falter and gasp
But you laugh and leave me
You bend with the breeze

I’m paying the bill
You’re soaring with ease
We’re racing together
I cunningly clasp

You come down
