The Great Divide

Three thousand miles apart

Pacific Ocean here

Atlantic Ocean there

Towering mountains in between

 Heart ripped in half

Young blossoming youth here

Silky hard warmth there

Deep falling canyon in between

 Blood gushing from the tear

Love for son here

Love for woman there

Can’t cross the Great Divide

Growing weak and faint

Less to give here

Less to give there

I meet death halfway
