I remember that day we sit side by side watching the sun set,
we were in awe of its colors and I unconsciously was reaching your hands—not wanting this to end.
Yet, here we are separated by unmeasured distance..
Looking at the sun slowly hiding under the horizon line.
it’s that same sunset all over again..
We’re looking at it the whole afternoon, trying to draw its beauty using our fingers,
hoping that somehow, knowing that our other half is looking at it too, our fingers would intertwine with each other..
I eventually stopped trying to reach it using my fingers..
Yet, I still managed to smile through the whole afternoon.
‘Cause I realized that even though my fingers wouldn’t reach you, my heart is with you in this very moment,
watching the same sunset..
