Long Distance Love Poems

Poems about Long Distance Relationships

To love at a distance can be torturous, as you always desire closeness to your beloved. But closeness and distance are not only physical definitions of space but also how we understand our heart. So while the physical distance between us may be great, that space may always be small within the heart. Holding close to the ones we love and trusting in that steadfastness can calm our hearts and soothe our minds no matter how far the physical distance between us. While loving another from far away may be difficult, faith in our love may keep us strong.

For The First Time In My Life

For the first time in my Life
Silence crept like Darkness

And wish that you were here

Sleepin' in your arms
Feelin' safe from harm
Impatiently I wait for the day

Years have come and gone
Yet our love has held on strong

You are never far from my heart

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 …
