Long Distance Poem

Poem About Missing My Other Half

This poem is dedicated to the love of my life, the one whom I have so much in common with. Distance doesn't mean anything as long as you both really care about each other. I only get to see you about twice a month and then vacations, but you're with me all the same.

130 Miles


Published by Family Friend Poems January 2016 with permission of the Author.

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 a while
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
