Long Distance Love Poem

I'm 15 years old and this poem is about my love for my boyfriend who lives far away. I miss him so much and love him so much that words will never be able to describe. I hope you enjoy it.

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.

  • Wow this poem just touched me..! I know definitely what you feel. I have the same problem and I love him soo much. We talk whole nights on Skype. But it isn't the same as when we were next each other. I mean we had fights and stuff like that. And then I didn't realize that he is the one I really want. Sometimes I feel myself soo ashamed because I don't know how to describe how much I love him in words and I feel really dumb about it, because every times he sent me cute messages about how much he loves me, misses me and cares for me. I don't know any other words to say back other than I LOVE YOU. Please help me with inspiration or tell me how you get yours..soo maybe I can describe how much I love him. And DAMN..your poem is pretty cool. You write exactly what I feel. Some times it's really hard to be far from each other. But it's nice to know or see how we fight for our love and trust each other.

  • I am a teen of 18 I have a girlfriend who lives faraway from me. A Nigerian and a black beauty. I love her very much and she loves me too, I met her during a holiday when she visited my location and I asked her out and she said yes after some weeks of trying and now we are dating that's why I came to this site to get sweet poems for her though she stays faraway from me.

  • This poem is sweet. Although I don't currently have a boyfriend I can relate to this. I was in love with a guy out of state and we could never be together because of it. It mad me sad. We ended up breaking our 5 year long distance relationship. I'm over it and him that's for sure.

I can relate to this poem because my boyfriend who is 20 now and I'm 19 I have been dating him for 4 years now, he lives out the state almost 6 hours away and I met him at a car show because he was visiting and he asked me out on a date and I've seen him about once or twice a year but he is thinking of going into the navy:(

  • SUCH A BEAUTIFUL POEM! I love it.....same thing is going on with me but the thing here is that we used to see each other but never talked and such but then I moved to a different state and we started talking and ended up going out. Its somehow complicated since we can't see each other and doubts run through our heads like in any other human being.....but I just hope to see him soon and to know for sure if that love was worth every shot. He's always in my head, that is for sure, I wonder if he thinks about me as much as I myself think about him. <3

    How much it’s painful, can’t describe. I met him during a holiday we have been dating 2 years now
    We talk whole nights on Skype and we meet twice a year
    Wish to everyone who is in this way glad, joy and much hope

  • Hi, I'm a 21-year old girl. What a beautiful poem! The situation is very similar for me. I've spend two beautiful holidays with my holiday love who lives far away and who is not prepared to be a real couple. Since the day I met him more than a year ago, no day has passed without thinking of you. Everytime he send me a message all my worries disappear and my world looks like a paradise. Good luck for everyone who is in the same situation, I hope the best for you all. If you have questions to me, just ask them in another message, I always like to talk about this subject.

  • Thank you so much. After reading this poem and the comments above, I feel a little less alone and that I'm not the only person in this kind of situation. Yes distance is really hard and really can tear two people apart, make you go crazy, helpless even, but for those who make it through, it truly can be beautiful. Stay strong guys! Good luck and thank you to who wrote this amazing poem(*^_^*)

  • I love your poem.. It's just what I and a million of others in LDR's feel.. I am 16 going on 17 and love this guy but he is currently in a university far from mine. He is in Osun state and I am in Ibadan.. I miss him so much.. I love him very much too.. I wish we can be together all the time but it's not possible. My heart always aches for him but as he says ''It's all for the best babe''. I just do love him.. Hope your relationship works out and that of those of us too who have this type of relationships too.

  • Damn and I thought I was the only one who is in a long distance relationship, because I met this girl on a social networking site and we've been together since September and although we have our little fights and squabbles we still make up even though we haven't actually met. We talk on phone for long periods of time, sometimes for five hours and we also chat and Skype a lot. Sometimes I wish she was here in Lagos instead of Abuja but things are going to work out. I'm gonna meet her in a few days from now and I'm sure gonna be as happy as hell. Good poem though

  • How sweet, that no matter the length of the relationship, almost all long distance couples can relate. My hubby and I are 6 and a half years currently, and a country away, and the simplicity of this poem is very relative. I enjoy it. But as many have said before, deep rooted love cannot be worded or fashioned for others to understand.

  • I can relate as well.. We been together for 2 yrs. and 5 mos. now and it is really hard to be far from the man you love. At first it made me cry, almost everyday but he always assure me that it will always be me, his one and only. And I trust him until now we are still together and being far from each other makes our relationship stronger:) we pray together as well.. I love him so much and I super miss him! He'll be home this summer and I can't wait to see him!:)

  • What a nice poem! your poem really made me cry! this is similar for me.
    Unfortunately, he doesn't know that I loved him
    I am 17, I live in Mongolia and last summer I had met the boy who came from UK in USA :) We had much unforgettable memories and I really love him.. I had tried my best to tell him that I love you but I could not.. the day I flew from USA I was completely afraid because I knew that we would never meet again.. this was the worst and powerful feeling I had never had :'(
    during these months I miss him and now I can do anything to meet him once more..
    Thank you very much :) Good luck for your next poems and we will be happy to read those!

  • I have exactly the same feeling. I met this lovely guy on the internet and he immediately became my best friend. We Skyped a lot and recently he overdosed. His mom started talking to me on Skype. When he almost died, my heart broke. I was so happy when she told me he recovered a few hours later! He actually was gay, and I had to tell him mom. This was pretty awkward. Then when he woke up in the hospital, his mom gave my message to him and he responded ''I love you more than anything''. Then his mom asked about being gay, and he said ''No, mom, I'm bisexual, I'm falling in love with my best friend''. When she told me, I knew that was aimed at me, I just knew! His mom brought him his phone and he immediately messaged me, saying he loves me and wants to be with me, now we're dating and we find it very hard to be apart. I hope I'm able to go to England someday..

  • This poem is exactly how I am feeling and I am 23 my boyfriend is in Virginia USA that is 1200 miles from where I am. I really do love him a lot and would do anything for us to be together and I know he would do the same. It hurts not having him next to me at night or waking up to him next to me knowing we have so much love for each other and being so far apart makes it hard for us but we aren't getting discouraged. We are thinking positive and its nice knowing there are others out there going through the same thing to know that we aren't the only ones.

  • I have been with my girlfriend for the past six years and I really love her like we just met yesterday....in our relationship we have only been together for two years and the rest staying far away from each other...but the fact is that I know that though we are far away, the love still remain the same because when ever I close my eyes I see her around me...her voice make me feel like she is just by my side. though at times I feel lonely I still know she is just with me and the distance between us is just a little storm between us which will come to an end soon.

  • Yay, 1st comment in 2014 ahah.
    So yeah, your poem. Hello, I'm a 14 year-old girl and I am in a LDR. Me and him have about 8 years of difference, so yes, he's 22. Me and him met in Omegle and we started to talk through facebook the same night we met. We met in February 2013 and we're "together" since December 2013. Kind of. I have never met him in my life but we talk through Skype. It's actually really hard to keep the relationship since we have never met and for us to meet each other is really really hard. He's from Lisbon and I'm from Oporto. The thing is, until now, we have managed to keep this alive. And it's been a year now. All that you say in your poem is everything I want to tell him. It's absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for spending some of your precious time to write this. It's amazing.
    I hope your LDR is still standing :) I wish you the best.

    Love xx

  • I'm 15 years old and me and my girlfriend met on the Internet last August and we just started talking. I can relate to this because she lives in New Jersey and we are crazy about each other. We FaceTime a lot and we are constantly talking about our future and we want to get married one day. Sometimes it's really hard and we've gotten back together 2 times because of our fights. We really want to be with each other. I'm glad I'm not the only one that is going through this and I hope that all of you people will someday meet your lovers.
