Distance

At arm’s length are many friendships
But no lasting friends
At a distance we see others
As we wish 
More than as they are
Far and away 
Our blemishes fade in their eyes
Grace is less needed
At a distance
So we are prone
To live at arm’s length
Easier
Yet lonely

Step in
Move close
Offer grace
Seek love
