The limitations of language

We are walking a long while
before you ask me

how far away is Gabby

she is somewhere on this small island
so I tell you she’s not far
and another long while passes
before you ask me

is she as far away as Christmas

at which point I realize
not enough language has been invented
to dress up my love for you
so I keep your hand in mine
and we walk on.
