Long Distance Poem

Loving Someone Far Away

I wrote this poem with the intention of sending it to my childhood friend whom I met again recently and found that he is still the love of my life and very special to me. I have never sent it.

You wrote a beautiful poem. I met a girl as I started dating again after 2 years. When I met her, I never felt like strangers, and thanks to your poem, I can tell her now.

Just One Word - If

If wishing were reality, then back in time we'd be,
To when we were children: happy and carefree.
If life could be that simple, how happy I would be.
You always were my special friend.
I thought you'd be there till the end.
For me you were the best, and that is why I loved you.

If I could have one wish come true, I know I'd use it up on you.
It was enough for me back then just to have you as my friend,
But I can't turn the clock back to when you were just mine.
If I could, I'd keep you there and show to you how much I care.
I'd tell you of the many things I'd like to share with you.
All my days, for starters, and then my night times, too.

You've given me a reason for smiling once again.
You've filled my life with peaceful dreams.
You've made me want to feel again, to laugh, and love, and see.
You are the life within my soul,
The other half that makes me whole.
You are my dearest friend.

You are the friend I've longed for my soulmate from the past.
You are the ray of sunshine that brings a rainbow from the storm.
The one to watch the stars with as they twinkle in night sky,
The one to watch the sun come up from its sleeping bed,
To see the birds awaken and listen to their song.
The journey could be beautiful if you came along.

True happiness is hard to find; it's given to so few.
If you could only feel the same, it'd make my wish come true.
More life we have behind us than we have to come.
What time we have together could be so much fun.
If I had to cross an ocean, that is what I'd do
If it means that I could spend my time left with you.
