Long Distance Love Poem

It is not necessary to be together to be in love

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

  • Well my boyfriend was always there by my side till he had to leave. It was the saddest day of my life. He was done with the program and he was ready to go. The day I saw him wearing the lei; I just knew that he was leaving me behind. I started to cry and I kept on crying; I never wanted him to leave me...

    I wanted to love him that night, but I was to late!!!
    But I know that my baby will wait for me...

  • My boyfriend moved to Atlanta and we had to break up. But we still talk everyday as if we were a couple. It hurts me every day that I can't see him. Seeing him walk out my door for the last time was so painful. And I miss him so much, This poem is like a short version of how I feel. He tells me every day that He loves me and that he will wait for me. And I honestly believe him.

  • Since we start this relationship we're already apart.. Me here in Asia and him in US. We waited for a year then we decided to get married he went here it's our very first meeting but when I saw him all those longing vanished all I wanted to do is hug him so tight.. He'd been here for a month to meet me, meet my parents and asked their permission of marrying me.. Yet I know we still need to be apart again it's so hard when I sent him to the airport. I don't want him to go but he have to.. I cried non stop.. We both cried.. We feel the pain of getting apart again but we know one day by our true love to each other we can be together again and we're not be apart anymore.... In God's will..

  • I'm from Texas and I sent this poem to my wonderful girlfriend in Slovenia. She loved it! We talk everyday and every night. We hope to see each other soon, but until we see each other, I stay up late so I can be the first one to tell her "I love you".

  • I have been talking to this guy for almost two months and I feel like me and him are just meant to be but he live in Georgia and I live in Illinois... I plan on saving up my money and this summer I want to go on a road trip to meet him because I feel like he is my other half. Although he is over 500 miles away he always knows how to make me laugh and smile. We Skype almost every night, He means the world to me and we plan on making this long distance thing work.

  • I'm young and the guy I love is way older than me, many don't approve of it. But I love him and that's all that matters we have been through a lot first it was him in jail and me never really getting to see him or talk to him now it's that we live far from each other and once again we don't get to see each other. It hurts it really does because I want us to work out but it's hard to figure things out when you're far apart from each other. Oh gosh how I miss him so much it hurts, I just want to be with him and have him here with me by my side but I never know when that is going to happen or if that will ever happen? Because I know how long- distant relationships work, and that's what I am scared of the most. I am scared of losing him and that's the last thing that I want to happen. Oh I love him so much all I can do is pray that one day god will bring us together if its his will for us to be together.?

  • I met my boyfriend in 2010 camping, unfortunately I didn't see him again till 2011 the next summer, and then I went another 2 years without seeing him until this summer I saw him, we didn't start dating till August of this year but we've been talking since the day we met. Anyways now that I have my license I've seen him twice since that week in August, so within the 4 years of knowing him I've seen him a total of 25 days and it's so hard but I love him with everything I have and he loves me, and even though everyone says long distance relationships don't work, I don't care or listen because it has made a bond and a relationship so unbelievably strong. He is not only my boyfriend but he is my best friend, my other half and I wouldn't want to be with anyone else.

  • My boyfriend and I have been together for about 5 weeks. Now he is moving 3 hours away. I will miss him a lot. I am only 14 and I know I am way too young to know what love is, but he is the only boy I have ever known to be such a gentleman and he is so nice and he understands me. We have been friends since six grade. When he asked me out it was so sweet. He has always been there for me. It just hurts so much. I will miss him a Lot:(

  • My boyfriend just got sworn into the National Guards. We have been together over a year and have never been apart. I just think that he is going to change. I am so use to seeing him everyday talking to him and having him by my side at night. And now we are cut down to only Sundays. I miss him already and he is not leaving for another week. It is only for training witch I am making a big deal. But even though things are very good with him and I right now, I just hope things are better when he comes Home.

  • I've been with my fianc้ for two years, known him for almost 6 . He is my life. I fell in love the very first time I laid my eyes on him. It's hard doing the long distance but its always worth it for love. For anyone reading this, don't ever give up on the one true love. It will always be hard and never easy. You may fight and scream but at the end of the day you can't be without that person. Nothing is perfect, no one is perfect but I always tell my fianc้, even though I'm not perfect and you're not either. We're perfect for each other.
