Good Night My Love!

© Saurav
As I am saying good night at the end of the day,
And you are not here, but many miles away,
My heart is so empty and so lonely inside,
As I wipe away a tear I am trying to hide.

I close my eyes and try to go to sleep,
But with the sadness inside I begin to weep.
Suddenly I remember what you once said to me,
Just meet me in the stars, waiting for you I will be.

When distance tends to keep us apart,
Remember I still hold you near in my heart.
When the night together, can't be ours,
Just close your eyes and meet me in the stars.

Remembering those words, I begin to smile,
And gently close my eyes, lessening the miles.
I can see the stars, oh how beautifully arranged,
But you are not there, no hug to exchange.

I sit alone waiting, with hope in my heart,
No longer wanting to be kept apart.
Suddenly in the distance, a shadow appears,
A tear rolls down my face and the image is clear.

  • Wow.. This poem is so perfect for my boyfriend and I.. He used to live in another city far away from me. And when we started going out; every night we'd talk on the phone and watch the stars. Every night. Until one day; he moved here all the way from his own city. From all of his friends and family. Just to be with me. He makes me so happy.. This poem actually made me cry. I loved it.
    (: thank you for writing the words I couldn't seem to say.

  • My husband is far away right now and has been for about 3 months but everynight when we talk we both sit outside looking at the stars and it makes us feel closer together somehow knowing we are both looking at the same starry sky.

  • I started a long distance relationship on the 24th of January and the guy I'm with doesn't always have time for me or talks to me that much and reading this made me tear up a bit because it's everything I want but I'm not getting it with him so I'm not sure what I should exactly do. He does make me feel amazing when we have our heart to hearts but it's constant bickering and I hate it. I love this poem though <3 it reminds me of what I can have if I stick by his side:)

  • I'm moving away from my true love and I looked for a poem that could ease the pain I love him and he loves me so at the end of the year I will read him the poem and I will hope it eases the painful moment and maybe if he wants to we could have a long distance relationship.........

  • I married the greatest man never violent. Never yelled at me or our son who is 16 now. He worked so hard even when he got bashed by 15 blokes while driving a taxi he got pulled from the cab. He was meant to have spine operation but it kept getting postponed. he had to start wearing men pads at night so he would wet the bed he had enough with this deterioration. He went to the hospital to get answers. But nothing so he pulled out a claw hammer smashed the triage window and waved a Stanley knife around at the nurse. He's now done a year in jail and now has been sentenced to 4 & 1/2 years with the 1 year taken off that he's served. I send him a poem every week but I'm looking for something different to do with all his lonely days and nights in his 22 hour cell as he's in maximum jail. I mark every day off in a diary.
