A message from across the pond

It felt like Christmas on that late September night in the airport waiting anxiously for you to step off the plane. I'm still recalling that first time I saw your face and all the things you ever said, they still fill me full of life. And I wonder why, as I close my eyes to sleep, I still feel happy, though our love is forced to wait. So I say your name out loud for all the stars to hear and for the wind to whisper to you, everything will be alright. And I hear your voice in the morning rays of sunshine breaking through the night storm giving me courage to face another day of being parted, having to hold our hearts at bay until the time our promises are made

Long distance love is very difficult and very hard.. You described the emotions very well..

Thvia that is my predicament exactly. I know too well the feelings you describe. He is not in another country but might as well be for now. Our lives are poles apart but somehow we found each other. We have been together/apart for almost 3 years but talk every day. Thank you for sharing this piece.

Likewise, John. I wrote this while my husband and I were dating long distance. We did that for 5 years before we got married. It was always so difficult when we had to separate and go back to our respective countries without the other. I pined for him. It was wonderful.

What a wonderful love poem, Thvia. I still remember the first time I saw my late husband's face. For me, it was love at first sight, but I had to wait quite a while for him to come around. It was worth the wait and yours will be too! Love, Carolyn
