creative writing : shapely poem

measured by miles
you are far from me.
measured by thoughts
you are closer to me.

you are not the food that i need
you are the nourishment of my soul.
you are not my will to survive
you are my reason for living.

it is with you that i triumph
over the challenges in my path.
it is with your patience and wisdom
that calms my restless nature.
it is with you i discover
my true self.

you are my better half.
yes, you complete me.
yes, we are compounded in nature.
