Long Distance Love Poems – 50 Beautiful Love Poems And Touching


It’s a wonderful feeling to be in a long-distance relationship. Keeping a long distance relationship is very difficult but it does not have to be the end of your romance. Love, in reality, is unconcerned about zip codes. Because, no matter how large the actual gap between us is, when love is big enough, that space within the heart may always be small.

Although they live far away ; love, trust, loyalty all make constantly linked. While loving another from afar may be tough, having faith in our love can help us stay strong. If you truly love him or her, your relationship will never end. Yes, keeping the connection takes a lot of work, but isn’t it worth it? ““In true love the smallest distance is too great and the greatest distance can be bridged.” .” Here, we have collected 50 romantic long distance relationship poems –  the best love poems about long distance relationships. I hope you enjoy your time on Rhymings.Com. Everything is fantastic!

I don’t cry because we’ve been separated by distance, and for a matter of years. Why? Because for as long as we share the same sky and breathe the same air, we’re still together.

Long Distance Poems – 50 Love Poems For Long Distance Relationships

Distance is not for the fearful, it’s for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those who know a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough.

50, Always On My Mind © Stanley Oguh

Though miles come between us
And distance keeps us apart
Nothing can ever change
The love inside my heart
I may not be there with you
Every minute of the day
But you’re always here with me
In at least a thousand ways
Whether it be a thought
Or a moment that we’ve shared
It only takes a second
To get from here to there
From where you are
You have the power to touch my heart
You’ve reached a place deep inside
No one else could ever find
You’ve turned my world around
And I’m so lost in you now
That even if I wanted to
I can’t be found
Though I cannot really feel
You here at my side
It’s always nice to know
I’ve got these memories in my mind
Just like the sun goes down at night
Just like the moon and stars come out
To light up the sky
Just as the heart beats to eternity
αnd the blood flows through the vein
Just like every spring has gloomy days
Full of thunderous rain
Before new flowers bloom
Just like the river travels long rough
Miles through cities and towns just to
Flow into the sea for eternity
There Will Be A Time For Us
My patience has no end
when it comes to loving you
and I will wait a lifetime
Just to be with you
I Miss You

1, My Dearest Love © Sherri Brown

I see you in my thoughts and dreams.
When I awake, how real it seems.
You aren’t here to comfort me,
But soon I hope you will be.

No one truly knows or understands;
You have my heart in your hands.
My love is what you truly own.
Come soon and make our house a home.

Inside those walls you are doing your time,
Not being here with me is your only true crime.
Others in your life will come and go,
But my love is true, and I’m sure you know.

I may not be rich or the prettiest one,
But I love you so much; you are my sun.
You light up my life every time you call.
When the time is up, I begin to fall.

You are my stars, you are my moon,
Being with you will come very soon.
So when you sleep, take this to heart,
No one or nothing will keep us apart.

49, Long Distance Love © Michael Stevens

Though ive met her not in person
ive not touched her skin
nor do i know the scent of her hair
but ive fallen smitten and tis no sin

Ive spoken to her on occasions few
but ive written her on much more
and as time passes with each day
my love of her grows a score

And i count the time till we meet
it will be a wonderful day
for the girl i met on the internet
no price too large ill pay

2, Far Away Lover © Janna Rutty

I lay in my bed and think about you.
I love you so much’ I don’t know what to do.
I feel your warmth at my side.
The pain in my heart moves to my eyes.
So far away, yet always so near.
You are the reason I am still here.

I await the times when we can talk
I await the times we can finally hold hands and walk.
To feel you for real… so close to me.
The happiest person in the world is what you would make me.

Your eyes shine like a million suns.
You shine more brightly than anyone.
Your smile so sweet can’t help but make me smile.
It stops my world, even for a little while.
I await the time when my hand is in yours,
To hear you say those 3 little words.

There are still no words I can say to describe.
My heart, it aches; and my eyes, they cry,
But when we talk, my heart flies.
You always wipe away the tears I cry.

Even though you aren’t here,
And I miss you so much, my dear,
I’ll love you forever and ever.
I’ll always love you, my far away lover.

48, Long Distance Love © Kenneth Maswabi

dear beloved
time flies unheeded
our days apart stretched
our love tormented
punctured by the passing time
temptations in our hearts
threatening our accord
intoxicating our minds
with wild thoughts
brainwashing our hearts
with forbidden desires
the source of wickedness

dear beloved
the boat of our love
is ever rocked by the feisty winds
hostile waves bashing us nonstop
bruising our hearts
with their powerful emotions
breaking our love
with their convincing force
severing our bond
with their sharp edge
condemning our love
with their lightening touch

dear beloved
hold onto our love
do not allow time to trick you
stay away from those temptations
abstain your mind from those wild thoughts
never open the lid of the pot of the forbidden desires
pray hard for the feisty winds to pass
and the storm to die
for the boat of our love is strong.

3, If You Only Knew © Tina Shondrick

IF you only knew that falling for you was the last
thing on my mind….

IF you only knew how sexy you are
and how I thought that body of yours was so fine..

IF you only knew that when you put on your sweet charm;
I feel myself melting right into your arms…..

IF you only knew when you whisper baby talk to me
I try so hard to hold back my laughter unsuccessfully……

IF you only knew how happy I felt when I opened up my eyes
and there you still were right by my side….

IF you only knew that sometimes I thought
maybe I should leave and just be on my way…..

IF you only knew how my heart would ache
at the thought of not seeing you each day…..

IF you only knew that from the start
your magic touch had captured my heart…..

If you only knew that I want all Haters to know, there”s no chance of breaking us up;
our love is a solid, strong unbreakable bond…….

IF you only knew how time stands still for me
when were laying in each others arms…..
my legs are tangled up with yours
and no one can do me any harm……

IF you only knew how much I love you now….
IF you only knew how much I care…..
IF you only knew you’re in my blood…..
then you would realize that only you
are my everlasting love…

47, I Imagine You © Sarah Lough

I can feel your smile
rest upon my face
And I can feel the warmth
and gentleness of your embrace

I can hear your laughter
it’s music to my ears
And your voice still whispers to me
and wipes away my tears

I imagine you
right here with me
the one and only place
you are meant to be
This is your home
here in my heart
but fate has been unkind
and time has kept us apart
So, I imagine you
right here with me

I remember that sparkle
that dances in your eyes
when something makes you happy
just to be alive

I remember your spirit
and how it set me free
How the tender side of you
put me at ease

I imagine you
right here with me
the one and only place
you are meant to be
This is your home
here in my heart
but fate has been unkind
and time has kept us apart
So, I imagine you
right here with me

4, Someone © Owain L. Derbyshire

Words simply can’t describe
My feelings for you,
For my feelings are so many
But words, they are so few.

Encouragement you give me
And a connection that is true.
I’m glad while reaching out
I found someone like you.

You give your love so sweetly.
I am lost if you are away.
You have me so completely.
I cherish you night and day.

You make me laugh
When I want to cry.
You make me happy
When you don’t even try.

Your laugh makes me smile.
You make my life a better place.
I love everything about you.
You’re someone I could never replace.

It’s you that keeps me up all night.
The one getting me through the day,
And so it seems to me that there
Is only one thing left to say.

I don’t know how to say it
To make it sound so true,
So I’ll say it how I feel it.
I’m in love with you.

No distance can keep us apart.
You are someone I can’t forget.
You will always be in my heart.
I know I’ll be with you yet.

I will tell you from my heart
We will never drift apart.
You keep me from being blue,
And I love you for being you…

46, Good Night My Love! © David L Yearwood

I am saying good night, it’s so hard to do,
you are not here with me, but many miles away,
My heart is empty, and lonely inside,
As I wipe my tears, falling from my face.

I close my eyes, while going to sleep,
with sadness inside, I begin to weep.
I remember suddenly, what you said to me,
Just meet me in the clouds, we’ll enjoy the ride.

When distance is a task, it can keep us apart,
Remember, I still hold you, close to my heart.
we will float through the clouds, till the miles are gone,
Just close your eyes, we’ll pretend we’re together.

I can see the clouds, oh, how beautiful they are,
I sit and wait, with hope in my heart,
one day we will be, together, for ever.
Good night my love, I’ll be dreaming of you!

5, Long- Distance Love © Practicing Poetess

Will I have to be content
To love you from afar?
With knowing that at night, we see
The same sky, moon, and stars?

When my heart does overflow
With loving thoughts toward you,
Will praying for you be enough
If that’s all I can do?

How long will I be content
To simply hear your voice
And not reach out to touch you, if
I never have that choice?

All I have, is knowing God
Is watching over you
And loving you a million times
Much more than I could do

45, In Search Of A Light © B. Hearne

As I walk through the darkness,
My soul searches for a light.

A light which will guide me
Through the darkest and toughest times,
Never flickering or fading.

This body of light will always be
The one thing in this world
Keeping me on the right path…

6, I Promise © Shae F.

I am giving you this ring as a promise to you
That no matter what, I will always be here and I will always be true.

I promise that I will lie with you and hold you at night
When things throughout your day just don’t seem to be going right.

For you, I would walk a thousand miles and more
Just to see your beautiful smile that I absolutely adore.

I promise that I will make you smile when you feel like crying.
I promise that I will comfort you if you feel like dying.

I promise to steal away your every sorrow and fear.
I promise to wipe away your every tear.

I promise to cherish every minute I spend with you
Until the daylight sky is no longer the color of blue.

Without your love, I do not know what I would do.
I will not have a future unless it involves you.

You’ve changed me for the better, and I have never been so happy.
Now, with you in my life, I can’t picture a world without you and me.

Fate decided it was time for us to be together,
And though our time here on Earth is short, I promise I want you always and forever.

I promise that no matter what may happen, we will make it through.
Please take this ring as a symbol of the love I will always have for you.

44, Long Distance Love © I Love My Wife Forever

When it hurts so bad,
why does it feel so good?
I wish this all made sense,
I wish I understood.
Not having you here with me is tearing me up inside,
but I can’t stop thinking about you no matter how hard I try.

You know how I feel about you,
and I know I want to spend the rest of my life with you,
but it’s so hard to do when I can’t even be next to you.
Why does it got to be so complicated?

Loving you feels so right,
but at the same time,
knowing I can’t have you keeps me awake at night.
I just want this to be simple,
I just want you here with me,
to look into your eyes,
be held in your arms… then I’d truly be happy.

Right now this distance between us is out of our control,
but I’m still hoping one day soon,
I’ll get what I’m wishing for.

7, Love Apart © Rhonda L. Luther

Even though we are miles apart,
You are never far from my heart.
I loved you then,
I love you now.
It’s always when
And never how.
Take me back to yesterday,
All the wonderful things you had to say.
I loved you then,
I love you now.
It’s always when
And never how.
I see your eyes,
I feel you near,
Although you’re not
Really here.

43, Canada Love Poem © Carol Voccia

I met a Canadian man who
In friendship shared
His story of
Love in truest
She was the morning glow
Who’s eyes sparkled gem like in brilliant
Birds and wind sang in her spirit hair
Cradling his love in her soul
His heart in her hands

His earth a happy song

And in cruelest shift of unexpected
Handed back in splintered
He’s heart
Bleeding in his hands
His river of tears never stopped
Lapping on edges of rugged rock

The seasons layered themselves in years
He searched falling in beds
And potent parlors
Of she forms looking
Crying in empty arms
And hollow love taking each as steps
To the next

Then he saw her
Profiled in a search looking for
That was lost
A maple leafed citizen living among
Puget Sound Yanks
His Canadian hat was willing to breach the
Bordered line,
Steal her back to their loony home

His heart leaped and ran the mile
Toward her tender kiss
But tales still sad this time around
She could not leave nor wanted to
And in a second she broke him

His soul turning to sand

Through his eyes I read his trust and looked
In pained pitted core
My own life looked as sand in houred glass
Sifting through shards of red
My eyes are yours, I said to him
My love on your side of the waving leaf
Not to me would he venture or
Risk his heart
Me here; him there
And I, too, still look among the
Stones of tearing rivers
My own heart cast on ragged rock

Bleeding still

8, Thinking About The Distance © Mina Milad

As I think about the distance,
I start to crave your brilliance.
I dream to see you for an instant.
Without you I question my existence.

When I look at the sky,
I think about the time.
How fast will it fly?
How much will I cry?

Why are you so unique?
How are you so complete?
You’re someone I cannot critique,
As you always bring me relief.

To you, I can write a gig
About how your heart’s so big
And how my soul you rigged,
How our hearts just clicked.

Unlike my future profession,
Your love I do not question.
I forbid you to be another lesson.
You and I are destined to be caressing.

Sadness is the feeling I get
When I think of leaving you again.
Know that you’re not just another friend;
You’re someone to whom my poems I send.

42, Three Little Words © Chevonne

If I say the words I miss you….
Does it just become a meaningless phrase?
or does it have sentimental values that last for more then just a few days.
Do your knees go weak when the words have been said,
the goose bumps, the chills, none you regret
Who could imagine that 3 little words
Could have such an effect and make you feel like love birds
Well I will admit and I will agree
That the words “I miss you” means a whole lot to me
And right now I want everybody to know
I miss my sweetie, and I’m never letting go…

9, Long Distance Love © Bilal Khoukhi

Humble beginnings are the ones that were hard
Momma crying, begging me not to go so far
I held my tears as I held her tight
I said momma forgive me, but I need a start
I’ve got dreams to realize
A desire to leave this place
A child I was chased
An adult misplaced
But momma don’t worry
I remember what you’ve taught me
Patience is a virtue and that it is key
That strength is weakness, unless I get on my knee
To help others, that’s one way to plant a tree
You taught me fairness and honesty
You’ve done a lot, as you were both of my parents
I learned to let go of my anger
As I learned from your patience
Your generous heart gave so much love
You still thought it was not enough
I pray to the one above
That soon I see you laugh
I miss your smile and I miss you smell
Until then, I wish you well
Truly Yours, my sweet angel!

41, Long Distance Love © Emily Summers

We are growing apart,
and we can’t even start,
converations anymore,
we used to be wild,
but now we are such a bore,
we don’t know what to say,
we don’t know how to feel,
because even though we’re face to face,
the mile gap seems real,

Ever since you moved away,
it just hasn’t been the same,
not that i believe it’s you who holds the blame.

We’ve grown,
we’ve changed so,
we have nothing in common now,
but we still don’t know how,
to end this,
the awkward hanging silence,
begins to lurk,
now whoever believed
that long distance
relationships can work?

10, My Gorgeous Handsome Soldier © Beki Coxon

Today my heart is aching
For a man that’s far away
I would give anything to hold him
And any ransom I would pay
I find my mind just wanders
To a sandy barren hell
And pray that my loving thoughts
Find my soldier safe and well
Each night before I go to bed
I look up to the skies
And the moon brings me comfort
As my tears brim in my eyes
Despite the miles between us
We still share the stars and sun
So I gaze upon them often
It helps me know we are still one
So as I lie down on my pillow
I close my eyes and think of you
Not only in my waking moments
But you are in all my dreams too
My gorgeous handsome soldier
I love you with all my heart
And the hardest thing I’ve ever done
Is have to accept we had to part
But our love is so much stronger
Than any force I’ve ever known
In the short time we’ve been together
It’s amazing how much it’s grown
So until we are reunited
Please stay safe and strong
My heart is yours forever
With you is where it belongs
Think about me often
My gorgeous handsome man
To wait for you forever
Is my battle plan

40, I Love This Man © Kirstie Dorgan

I love this man who is away from me
and I think I’ve ruined us with my jealousy
it’s not the way I want it to be
I am my own worst enemy

I love this man who is not around
to pick me up when I am down
to shut me up when I say too much
he’s just not here for me to touch

I love this man more than anyone ever
and it scares me as we’ve not long been together

I know that we both have a past
and I know that I have to get over that fast
I love this guy and I want us to last
as I know that we both will have a real blast!

So I love this guy who is not here
and the love that I feel is very rare
and even though he is not near
my love is with him everywhere.

11, A Soldier © Brionna C

He says he’s leaving.
He’ll be gone about a year.
He’s headed off to fight the war,
And his time is drawing near.

I have no words of wisdom,
To ease our aching hearts.
He’ll be gone and I’ll be here,
A thousand miles apart.

The danger that soldiers face,
He knows it all too well.
Still, he keeps our spirits up,
As our throats begin to swell.

The morning comes all too fast,
I’m not prepared at all.
Because I know there is a chance,
My soldier won’t come home.

My soldier is a strong man,
One that’s brave and true.
He’s not afraid of dying,
He fights for me and you.

So if you see a soldier,
Give him lots of praise.
Tell him that you’re thankful,
You see the price we pay.

39, I’m Always With You © Blair

I light up when you’re here
and when you’re gone
my heart disappears
so I lose myself in our songs

I listen to the words that are us
and I float to your arms
and it’s there that I trust
I will never know any harm

we have ups and downs
but we have something rare
we fight off each other’s frowns
and no one has what we share

at times I cry so much
needing you next to me
needing your touch
it hurts so much it kills me

you shine brighter than any star
and your heart is what I love most
and I hate that you’re too far
because I need you in my arms so

to take your heart and heal it
to hold you and kiss you
my love, I want you to feel it
until then, I’m always with you

12, Long Distance Love © Brandon

How do you wait
At least 3 years
For a possible soul mate
But have no fears

For you, I open my gate
And wish that you were here
But you live in another state
Yet another reason to fear

But I fear because I care
And I care because I love you
It’s a kind of love that is rare
And shared by very few

My love, in every form, is undying
And to lose you in anyway, would mean I’m dying
You are a gift greater than everything
And for you, I’ll do anything

I’ll wait for you, over these next few years
And together we’ll overcome our greatest fears

38, Long Distance Love © Tess Rockenstire

Mesmerized by the possibility of love,
Bed of roses our escapades;
Only to discover it was love in vain.
Groping the bed, empty as a nest,
Callous of heart ache is upon this narrow – place.

Desperation is upon this head,
I searched for an answer
To heal – gain wisdom and closure.
My eyes are dry, the tears -I could not cry.
Our wall divides us; every route is a dead end.

Baby wherever you are
Let our hearts dip into madness of love,
Only God has the answer.
Closing my heart is not the way,
It will always be yours to come home too.

Would our long distance love survive?
Let the heavenly angel guide your way,
Hidden in the recesses of my heart
Is your soul to keep?
You’ll find it here alive and well.

13, Patiently Waiting © James Richmond Jr.

My heart is set, on that glorious day.
When your work is done, and you’re home to stay.
I’ll be waiting right here, with open arms.
To hold you close, and keep you warm.
I’ll squeeze you gentle, but hold you tight.
And kiss you all over, when the time is right.
I’ll express my love, so you know it’s true.
There’s nothing on earth, I would not do for you.
Because you’re the one, you’re one-of a kind.
I’m proud to be able, to call you mine.
What a expression, on your face,
when I pulled the ring, out of the case.
And I took your hand, then dropped to my knees.
And said honey please, will you marry me.
Like wind in wildfire , my love is spreading fast,
Growing stronger and stronger, as each day pass.
I’ve waited very patiently, but now you’re home.
Let’s make up the time, that you were gone.

37, The Light Of Love © Yusif Yaqoob

Through the darkness, there came a light
Though so far but yet so bright.
I close my eyes and look deep insight..
I walk this darkness without a fright.

I clutch this image like a precious sight,
The one that sets my heart alight.
I hold that thought and now I write,
With the thought of us on this night.

I travel this road to find affection
I now edge closer and taste perfection.
The darkness evades, I’ve found protection
I reach this light to build my connection.

My strength has now so briskly grown,
I no longer feel I travel alone.
I continue to proceed on this empty path,
The wait is long but I show no wrath.

The star may seem so far away,
I set fourth my travels to meet that day.
I hold my faith and wait these years,
So far I’ve come, its worth those tears.

I stand, I sit and now I stare,
I look beyond me and see you there.
I’ve found the light and now I smile,
I’ve found my strength to crawl this mile.

I accept love like its my treat,
The thought is real, I’m now complete.
I hear sweet voices in my head,
They say my path is clear ahead.

Some just try but yet they fail,
The unconditional love that we prevail.
I had my freedom, I made this choice,
I found my love, I now rejoice.

I never believed I’d find this love,
Like that beautiful star from above.
I questioned love and what I feel
With you I learnt my love is real.

14, Something © Constantine

I wish I could capture this moment forever
not with a camera but something far better

something that would enable me to remember how you taste
without my lips going near your face

something that would let me gaze at your eyes
even if we were below different skies

something that reminded me of the beauty of your scent
even if it was a place we never went

something that would make this fantasy true
something that connected me back to you

36, You © Jessica Phelps

There’s something in your voice that makes it all alright,
Something in your smile that gets me through the night.
A comfort in your grin that helps my day pass by.
A twinkle in your eyes that lights my darkened sky.
Your posture says “don’t worry” and your laugh, it says “I care”.
That kiss you blow when we say goodbye that says “I’m always there”.
It’s all these things about you I couldn‘t live without.
It’s you that makes me happy, it’s you without a doubt.

15, Love Online © Jeremy

How did this happen I continue to ask?
As I get online waiting for time to pass
You are now fast asleep half a world away
This distance is nothing, I mumble away
I never loved another who was so very sweet
God I look forward to rubbing your feet
The smell of your skin; the warmth of your touch
Is all I want and so very much
As I ask permission to view your cam
My heart beats heavy; there is sweat in my hand
To be with you is my only dream
As the time passes I can’t help but scream
Pulling my hair and stomping the ground
Please turn on your cam to see my frown
My frown turns around as I see you smile
Yes, I know baby, you leave in a while
Long distance love is hard to grasp
But our love for each other will surely last!

35, A Lover’s Patience © Joy Hensley

Lost is the girl
With the lonely smile
She waits for her love
A long and weary mile
He stole her heart
Before she’d even seen
He’d be her prince
And she’d be his queen
Though far away
She knows in her heart
A connection between them
Cannot be torn apart
Born to love him
All of her life
She awaits his return
With no grief or strife
Love brought them near
And will see them to the end
Together they’ll be,
Their distance time will amend.

16, Love As One © Angela Fernatt

Sleepin’ in your arms
Feelin’ safe from harm
Impatiently I wait for the day
That I don’t have to see you go away
Years have come and gone
Yet our love has held on strong
The time has come
For us to finally be one
You are my true lover and best friend,
My soul mate and companion to the end
I hope to keep you happy
Never getting too serious or sappy
Your eyes that sparkle and shine,
That excites me knowing your love is mine
We both have hurt and cried
The love for each other never died
I promise with my heart to be true
Keeping my love, only giving it to you
From today forward, I promise this . . .
Our vows, our life as one, will be
Forever sealed with a kiss.

34, That Special Moment! © David Yearwood

My love, how much I want to be there with you,
To feel your touch and see your smile.
To hear you say, I love you so,
For all the ways you’ll show me how.

O my love, I long to be with you,
O my love, words will never express,
The feelings I have for you inside,
I’ll give my all, just to be with you,

being in your arms, safe and sound,
to see your tender smile again.
Holding me softly, with your tender touch,
being ever so close and never apart.

O my Love I need You so,
my soul is on fire.
My passion and emotion is here for you,
with much desire, I just can’t explain.
My heart is ready to surrender all.

Come to me, I’m ready for love,
I want it to be, that special time!

17, Long Distance Love © Alan W. Jankowski

Long distance love, how are you?
Are you thinking of me too?
I thought about you again today,
Just hoping that you are okay,
Can’t you please pick up the phone?
As I sit here all alone.

Long distance love, do you recall?
The times it seemed we had it all,
The times we thought would never end,
But now I need more than a friend,
Everything could be so right,
If you would just come home tonight.

Long distance love, can’t you see?
How much you really mean to me,
Sometimes it seems to be my fate,
To have to sit at home and wait,
But if this is what I have to do,
I will always be here for you.

33, I Miss You © Francis Iyke

Like the death of a loved one,
I miss you.
Like freedom to a slave,
I miss you.
Like rain during the drought,
I miss you.
Like the sight of a blind man,
I miss you.
Like the thought of home to a traveler,
I miss you.
Dearly I miss you because you’re a part of me.
So please come and complete me
and end this cravings of mine because daily I miss you.

18, I Know It © Misti L. Green

It was love at first sight.
When I saw you, I knew
Together we would be,
Just me and you.

You’re the only one
I love you so much.
I’m all alone now,
And I long for your touch.

It seems so long
Since you have left.
You said you would be back.
I just hope for the best.

It has been three days…
I miss you so.
I wish that I
Was allowed to go.

You said you would call
When you arrived.
But when you didn’t,
It made me cry.

I count down the days
Until you’re back in my world.
I still can’t believe
That you chose me to be your girl.

My love is true,
I know yours is too.
I can’t wait
To be back with you.

32, I’m Just A Soldier © Justin Eugene Shelton

I’m headed to Iraq
I guess I will see you when I get back
I already miss you
I just wish I could kiss you
I will be back before you know it
I hope you know I love you even though I don’t show it
Now I am just a soldier fighting for what I think is right
Just waiting to see who the next bullet is going to bite
I try not to think of the worse
Like if I had to leave this universe
Sorry this isn’t what I had planned
Having to stay over here in the sand
It’s hard to go to sleep and it’s hard to stay awake just wondering what will happen at day break
There are only two kind of people the quick and the dead
That is all I can think about as I lie here in my bed
But I have to serve my country
Even though I will miss our anniversary
I’ve got to go now it’s my time to leave
Because all I can care about is this patch on my sleeve
Honey I will write you as much as I can
And yes I guess you can say your my number one fan

19, I Miss You! © Bailey

Every morning I wake up
Realizing you’re really far away
So I put on my make up
And pray for a good day.

I know God’s watching
And he’ll lead me back to you
I just have to keep living
So he can see me through.

Although you’re not close
And many miles away
I’ll still love you
Even after today.

I really miss you dearly
And really wish I was there
But despite of not having you here
At least I still have air.

31, A Soldiers Dove © Korrymills

as I lay on my back.
I look up into the night sky.
after repelling off the last attack.
I can feel you. I ask why.

I see your face in a distant star.
beaten, broken, and thrashed.
because my dove. you’re so far.

wish I could hold your heart.
wish I was home and not here.
each new day I slowly fall apart.
because I’m so far away from my dear.

wanting, needing your love
I think about the past
I think about the night I first met my dove.
our hearts racing so fast.
how we couldn’t help but talk for hours.
until we both fell asleep.

what brought us together?
we will probably never know.
it’s you dove that holds me together.
even on this battle field you won’t let go.

with my face in your hands.
please don’t weep when I die.
promise me when you hear the bands.
you won’t give up and cry.

this land was my enemy and my dove my sword.
without you they would have won along time ago.
last thoughts in my head my heart you adored.
the enemy and I went toe to toe.

now he stands over top me and blocks the light.
I scream, Run dove! all I can see is darkness.
as I call upon all my last might.
grabbing my last mag out of my harness.

he reaches for his gun.
points and pulls back the hammer.
and says now I have won.
squeezes out his last round.

he missed I’m not hit!
I fire my last shot.
the darkness fades.
so long we had fought.
I apply first aids.

then set up and look around.
he’s laying in a pool of blood.
I hear weeping from my back on the ground.
its my dove!
she took the bullet. she’s dying.
why my love!?
I just break down and start crying.

I take all my bandages off and put them on her!
but its just not good enough.
as she says “this isn’t goodbye lover”.

I’m thousands of miles away sleeping in my bed.
this is all in your dreams.
all of this is in your head.
when you wake up you will know what it all means.

I snap awake!
its 3:30 a.m.
there’s a call I need to make.

suddenly I hear bells.
my phones ringing
I pick up my cell.
its my dove!
I answer and say… “I love you”

20, Our One Star © Colby Barker

Look at the stars tonight
As we see the same light
And in that moment
It will be alright

If you miss a falling star
I’ll catch it for you
Keep it in my heart
And we can share it too

Keep holding on
As life goes along
Pain is short-lived
As you are so strong

I will hold your hand
And look in your eyes
But it is only then
That our star will shine.

30, Sun And The Moon © Sierra S.

Oh, what a sweet love story, the sun and the moon.
The sun lights up the earth, searching for her love,
Only to recede into the soft ocean tides.
Just as her love, the moon, does the same shortly after she’s gone,
Drawn by her light.
He shines small beacons up in the night,
That the sun sees and races to dawn,
Only to see that her love is gone.
Oh, what a sweet love story, the sun and the moon.

21, Secret Garden © JTH

You have planted a seed in the secret garden of my soul,
that I will water everyday and give it love to grow.

I will nurture it and take care to give it all that it needs,
and grow a symbol of our love from this sacred seed.

As I watch it blossom I think of you here with me,
and dream of the blessed day when together we shall be.

If you are ever lonely or sad and blue,
step into our secret garden where I wait for you.

Come share in the splendor that our love has grown,
and in my arms by this rose let our secret be known.

29, Light Of My Life © Barbara Harkrader

The light is shining oh so bright
The light you brought into my life
I have searched so high and low
for my special glow
Before I sleep, I will pray
The Lord will give me that special day
I will let my spirit enjoy the night
To envision my special light
You have given me the gift I seek
To keep my spirit from being oh so weak
I thank the Lord for the shine in you
For helping me understand the gift from you
Unto you, I will say
I thank the Lord for bringing you my way

22, For The First Time In My Life © Moheem

For the first time in my Life
Silence crept like Darkness
Hours felt like Weeks and seconds like Days
Music, movies and crowds had no meaning
Speed, Cars and Bikes found no place in me
Technology did not matter like before
Life did not feel lively anymore

For the first time in my Life
There arouse a feeling of being dead even when alive
Distance felt proportional to time
And Sleep was no where to be found
I was losing the silver lining up the sky
Life was not life anymore

But then,
For the first time in my Life
This Separation made a meaning to my life
Distance felt proportional to Love
The Silver lining grew sharper up the sky
Power of the bond we share built up
And that no barrier is ever to strong
Life felt as a challenge,
A Challenge I knew I have to fight
For things between you and me to get right!

For the first time in my Life
A Realization felt arousing
That for the beautiful life ahead of us
It’s not about me or you, it’s about us
It’s not about just sharing the feeling of togetherness
Trust, Support, Understanding and True Love is what makes us so Special
A Specialty that very few like us are gifted!

For the first time in my Life
Prayers to God felt even Stronger and Powerful
For the Price of separation
God has gifted Guardian Angels to look upon us!

For the first time in my Life
I’ve fallen in Love
A Love so Special and Strong
That falling in love with someone else
Stands no chance in this life or the next!

For the first time in my Life
It feels like this is just the beginning
That this same time would not be the first time
But the next time I don’t have to look for answers
Because for the first time in my Life
Life is worth living for, because
I know the person who loves me as much as I do
From the deepest part of my heart Chidambra, I Love You!

Together Forever.

28, Just One Word – If © Yvonne Roberts

If wishing were reality, then back in time we’d be,
To when we were children: happy and carefree.
If life could be that simple, how happy I would be.
You always were my special friend.
I thought you’d be there till the end.
For me you were the best, and that is why I loved you.

If I could have one wish come true, I know I’d use it up on you.
It was enough for me back then just to have you as my friend,
But I can’t turn the clock back to when you were just mine.
If I could, I’d keep you there and show to you how much I care.
I’d tell you of the many things I’d like to share with you.
All my days, for starters, and then my night times, too.

You’ve given me a reason for smiling once again.
You’ve filled my life with peaceful dreams.
You’ve made me want to feel again, to laugh, and love, and see.
You are the life within my soul,
The other half that makes me whole.
You are my dearest friend.

You are the friend I’ve longed for my soul mate from the past.
You are the ray of sunshine that brings a rainbow from the storm.
The one to watch the stars with as they twinkle in nights sky,
The one to watch the sun come up from its sleeping bed,
To see the birds awaken and listen to their song.
The journey could be beautiful if you came along.

True happiness is hard to find; it’s given to so few.
If you could only feel the same, it’d make my wish come true.
More life we have behind us than we have to come.
What time we have together could be so much fun.
If I had to cross an ocean, that is what I’d do
If it means that I could spend my time left with you.

23, 130 Miles © Maggie A

I wait aimlessly for your arrival
Just to see your smile
To hold you in my arms
To keep you from the world’s harm

As I sit waiting
That moment I am creating
When I can finally see you standing before me
How lovely would that be
I hear your car outside
Last time I saw you I cried

As I run to meet you
I realize our love is true
Our bodies meet with an embrace
And all I can feel is my heart race

We spend hours together
We’re two birds of a feather
I enjoy every second I have sitting beside you
Butterflies I get from you, as if our love is still new

The way you say goodbye
And the way you cry
And hug me so tight
In your arms it feels so right
Kissing you for what I know is the last time for awhile
Oh, how I’ll miss that smile

As I walk away from the only thing I’ve ever really known
Home doesn’t even feel like home
All I can say is that I miss you, Bay
Knowing you’re about 130 miles away

27, A Long Distance Love! © Jessica Andress

A thousand kisses will never be,
Enough to satisfy my craving heart’s plea,
Tomorrow will be the day I love you more,
Than today or yesterday or ever before,
Words and phrases will never do,
What my heart feels so deeply for you,
Deeper and deeper my feelings go,
My head is spinning too and fro,
I want you here, forever and more,
For our hearts to join and together explore,
Our hearts beat and beat as one,
Feel what I’m feeling, it’s only begun,
Yet, slowly my desire turns to rage,
My heart feels as though it’s within a cage,
You are so close yet so far,
At times like this I wish upon a star,
I wish you were here and not over there,
Yet life is hard as well as unfair,
All I can do is wish and wait,
Until we meet again as that is our fate,
I love you more than my words can say,
And forever my love will grow each passing day,
Until the day I gently hold your face,
Kiss your lips within a candle lit place,
Hold you close and feel you near,
Kiss your cheek and whisper among your ear,
Feel your soft skin beneath my hand,
Feel your energy inside expand,
I’ll wish for that moment as I always do,
And I’ve wished upon a star, so my wish will come true.

24, Will You © Marlyn Richards

Will you run into my arms the first time you see me,
Just as you whispered across the vast Caribbean Sea,
When my eyes, red from the sleepless night, anxious to see you in reality
Hides its beauty?

Will you embrace me so it feels like forever,
Though the smell of cheap perfume diffuses all over,
And my clothes worn, having refused to be adorned
By whom I’m scorned?

Will you love me tomorrow as you do today,
When I’m lost for words, with nothing to say,
Overwhelmed at the thought that you chose me
From the many hunters, all armed in their beauty?

Will you still love me when I have loved you so much,
That all I do is stand in wait to satisfy your desires in a rush,
And my olive-brown skin no longer glows, but wrinkles
From life’s blows?

26, Feelings And Thoughts © Thomas Kachepa-Sanderson

When I wake
In the mornings,
I feel and think
So many things.

Thoughts of anger
Thoughts of aggression,
Thoughts of how
I can beat this depression.

Lots of people here
But I can’t help feeling lonely.
Six months I’m living here,
It will never feel homey.

Should I laugh?
Should I smile?
It only lasts
For a while.

But then the thought of seeing you
Sends me wild,
And the thought of seeing
Our unborn child.

The feeling of
Excitement and glee
Fills my heart,
I couldn’t be more happy.

I talk to you
On the net and phone,
Always thinking
Of coming home.

How is my wife?
How is she coping?
To the woman I love,
My life I’m devoting.

When I know you are well
And you and bump are okay,
My smile grows bigger
With every day.

The way you walk,
The way you smell,
To hear your voice,
I’m under your spell.

You make everything
Come to life.
I just smile
And thank God you’re my wife.

What I’m trying to say
Through all of this
Is you make my life
A living bliss.

Thank you!

25, Scared Of Not Missing You © Jay Jones

I’m scared of not missing you anymore, I’m scared to live that day.
I’m scared my mind will erase the memory of the day you went away.
I put a lot of trust in you, you said that you were different.
Your intellect was beyond the hood, but I guess not far enough to miss it.

I guess I should’ve told you that I’m really sensitive, though I try to act like I don’t mind, that night I still relive.
I’m ashamed because I know I love you way more than you like me,
and that I cry for you when you’re not here so much that I can’t see.

This headache just won’t go away its been here since you left.
Though loud yet meek, though screaming yet bleak, this loss truly feels like death.
I pray you don’t feel these words are a stretch because we’ve shared limited time,
or that I’m completely insane for tatting your name, assuring I’ve lost my mind.

Well the truth is that you are for me, and I’ve known it since we met.
Yeah we fought, loved, broken up, but there’s something you just have to get.
I don’t want anyone else baby doll, I don’t want another man.
I’ll build you up and give you my heart to cradle in your hand.

I admit I am attached baby, and dangerously its true.
That I want to offer my body and soul as a sacrifice to you.
I pray you never leave my side though physical I can take,
but mentally please stay awhile and never leave this place.

365 days is the longest fight I feel I’ve already been beat.
That waiting is indeed the hardest game and I’ve just succumbed to defeat.
Terell aka my babe that definitely is what you are.
Though unspoken yet chanted, and rough yet romantic, this love was written in the stars.

I don’t know what you feel inside, or if this load you can carry.
If once you’re out you’ll go buck wild or settle down and marry.
I feel we’ll be getting to know each other more so here than before,
so open and let me in because it’s you that I adore.

The fate of this relationship is exclusively up to you, I’ll be holding down my end until my biggest dream comes true-
I love you!
