Whenever We Are Apart

Whenever we are apart
Separated by endless miles
Seas, deserts or phone call
I think of you

And then I wonder
In whose arms you slept last night
I wonder with whom
You whispered all those sweet words
And my heart breaks into two

Whenever we are apart
Separated by walls,
Words or fences unintentionally built
I think of you

And then I wonder
Whose fingers raked your cornrows
I wonder
Whose thumbs caressed your lips
And my heart breaks into two

Day after day
These feelings resurface
And time after time
They have left me heartbroken
