Long Distance 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.

    Into my cold, dark, and lifeless night.

    My life will always revolve around you.
