Long Distance Poems For a Lover

Long Distance Poems family

Is there a boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse who’s far away from your arms right now? Here are some heartfelt poems to express your emotions to him with:

1. My Dearest Love

I see you in my thoughts and dreams,
When I awake, how real it seems.
You aren’t here to comfort me,
But soon I hope you will be.
No one truly knows or understands;
You have my heart in your hands.
My love is what you truly own.
Come soon and make our house a home.

Inside those walls you are doing your time,
Not being here with me is your only true crime.
Others in your life will come and go,
But my love is true, and i’m sure you know.

I may not be rich or the prettiest one,
But I love you so much; you are my sun.
You light up my life every time you call.
When the time is up, I begin to fall.
You are my stars, you are my moon,
Being with you will come very soon.
So when you sleep, take this to heart,
No one or nothing will keep us apart.

– Sherri Brown

2. Every Moment

As each star comes out to shine
As the wind rustles across the land
As the moonlight sweeps across the room
I’m thinking of you.

When the sun burns its morning greeting
When the birds chirp and swoop through the sky
When the leaves of the trees dance through the air
I’m thinking of you.

During the haze of late afternoon sun
During the smooth swirl and flow of the clouds across the sky
During the fade of the bustling day
I’m thinking of you.

While the twilight shadows begin to fall
While the evening air begins to chill
While the crickets begin their sweet evening chorus
I’m thinking of you.

Just as the darkest hour of the night falls
Just as the world is hushed and silent
Just as dreamland beckons,
I’m thinking of you

Every day
Every hour
Every moment
I’m thinking of you through the miles
and loving you.

– Unknown

3. Each And Every Moment

For each and every moment
Every second I exist
I live and breathe for you
Your love I can’t resist
To live and love this lifetime
You are in my daily prayer
For times when you’re not with me
When I close my eyes you’re there
For every dance together
For every star above
The light that burns within us
The passion of your love
With dreams so never ending
For every sparkling sea
For each sunrise and sunset
I feel your love in me
For every breath worth taking
More then the air I breathe
The love that lives within me
Forever I believe
For each and every moment
And every heartfelt kiss
I am always thinking of you
And of the things I’d miss
For every hug that we have shared
And every soft embrace
For every smile turned to laughter
No other could take your place
For each and every moment
This heart so warm and pure
Gently caresses each heartbeat
And I could not ask for more

– William Lindenmuth

4. Long Distance Love

When it hurts so bad,
why does it feel so good?
I wish this all made sense,
I wish I understood.
Not having you here with me is tearing me up inside,
but I can’t stop thinking about you no matter how hard I try.

You know how I feel about you,
and I know I want to spend the rest of my life with you,
but it’s so hard to do when I can’t even be next to you.
Why does it gotta be so complicated?

Loving you feels so right,
but at the same time,
knowing I can’t have you keeps me awake at night.
I just want this to be simple,
I just want you here with me,
to look into your eyes,
be held in your arms…then I’d truly be happy.

Right now this distance between us is out of our control,
but I’m still hoping one day soon,
I’ll get what I’m wishing for.

– Panda

5. When I’m With You

In your arms,
I’m in my safe haven.
With you holding me tight,
I have no other craving.

All I need
is that one look
that says you’re always there,
just like in a fairy tale book.

Your eyes talk to me
as the world stands still.
My once empty heart
now with love does fill.

Your eyes tell me
that you’ll love me every day.
No matter what may come,
you’ll be there to stay.

I tell you everything
and never with a lie:
all my worldly secrets
and everything that once made me cry.

Everything in my past,
with you I can forget it all.
I know I can trust you
to catch me if I fall.

If only I could explain
how much love I have for you.
Then maybe, just maybe,
you’d feel it too.

– Blakelee

6. My Only Love

Since the first day we met,
I knew you were the one.
God answered my prayers;
You came down from above.

You gave me your heart,
You gave me your trust.
From that very moment,
It was more than just lust.

Your sweet, loving words
Can never be compared.
I am your forever partner;
My soul I have bared.

Never put into question
Any of my feelings being true.
I have found my one and only.
Baby, that is YOU!

– Sheri Medina

7. Thinking About You

When I ate today at noon
All I could think about was you
Wishing you were here to do what you do
Wishing I could feed you with my spoon
Hoping someday I’ll see your smile again

I don’t know if I can take all this pain
Knowing that I am here and you are there
Thinking about the times we had and will not have

You are the best there ever was and will be
There is nothing to explain you, but lovely
Even when I was sad you made me happy

I just don’t know what to do
I just hope one day, I get to see you

– Gary R. Hess

8. My One, My Only, My Everything

For so long, I wished for the day.
The day that our love would find its way.
From my heart and into your soul,
The feeling so strong, I had no control.

When then that day came, when I found you again,
I vowed never to make the same mistake.
I knew I would never let you go,
For my life is now complete in a way I cannot show.

For eternity I will spend making you believe,
You are the sole reason that I breathe.
My life is yours, my hopes and desires too.
Until my dying day, my heart is reserved just for you.

You are everything I could ever need and more,
More than I deserve or would dare wish for.
You are my baby, my angel, my dream girl
I’m thankful every day that you are my whole world.

For the time I spend with you, my heart truly sings
My one, My only, My EVERYTHING.

– D Lancaster

9. Scared of Not Missing You

I’m scared of not missing you anymore, I’m scared to live that day.
I’m scared my mind will erase the memory of the day you went away.
I put a lot of trust in you, you said that you were different.
Your intellect was beyond the hood, but I guess not far enough to miss it.

I guess I should’ve told you that I’m really sensitive, though I try to act like I don’t mind, that night I still relive.
I’m ashamed because I know I love you way more than you like me,
and that I cry for you when you’re not here so much that I can’t see.

This headache just won’t go away its been here since you left.
Though loud yet meek, though screaming yet bleak, this loss truly feels like death.
I pray you don’t feel these words are a stretch because we’ve shared limited time,
or that I’m completely insane for tatting your name, assuring I’ve lost my mind.

Well, the truth is that you are for me, and I’ve known it since we met.
Yeah, we fought, loved, broken up, but there’s something you just have to get.
I don’t want anyone else baby doll, I don’t want another man.
I’ll build you up and give you my heart to cradle in your hand.

I admit I am attached baby, and dangerously its true.
That I want to offer my body and soul as a sacrifice to you.
I pray you never leave my side though physical I can take,
but mentally please stay awhile and never leave this place.

365 days is the longest fight I feel I’ve already been beat.
That waiting is indeed the hardest game and I’ve just succumbed to defeat.
Terell aka my babe that definitely is what you are.
Though unspoken yet chanted, and rough yet romantic, this love was written in the stars.

I don’t know what you feel inside, or if this load you can carry.
If once you’re out you’ll go buck wild or settle down and marry.
I feel we’ll be getting to know each other more so here than before,
so open and let me in because it’s you that I adore.

The fate of this relationship is exclusively up to you, ill be holding down my end until my biggest dream comes true-
I love you!

– Jay Jones

10. Far Away Lover

I lay in my bed and think about you
I love you so much I don’t know what to do
I feel your warmth at my side
The pain in my heart moves to my eyes
So far away yet always so near
You are the reason I am still here.

I await the times when we can talk
I await the times we can finally hold hands and walk
To feel you for real… so close to me
The happiest person in the world is what you would make me.

Your eyes shine like a million suns
You shine more brightly than anyone
Your smile so sweet can’t help but make me smile
It stops my world even for a little while
I await the time when my hand is in yours
To hear you say those 3 little words.

There are still no words I can say to describe
My heart it aches and my eyes they cry
But when we talk my heart flies
you always wipe away the tears I cry.

Even though you aren’t here
And I miss you so much my dear
I’ll love you forever and ever
I’ll always love you my far away lover.

– Janna Rutty

11. Heart Song

Until our final kiss goodbye
I didn’t know that hearts could fly
But mine flew away
With you that day.

Distance, so few thoughts I gave,
Until you had to leave that day.
But in that moment I could feel
That distance is heavy, hard, and real.

I didn’t know that heartstrings tied
And tangled up so much inside.
Until the last smile you sent my way
When you had to go that day.

I never thought that time could seem
So cold and cruel that I could scream.
Until the long hours after you’d gone,
As my heart cried until the dawn.

Now I am just holding on
For the moment our love’s sweet song
Together loud and true will ring
As so in love our hearts will sing.

– Unknown

12. That Special Moment!

My love, how much I want to be there with you,
To feel your touch and see your smile.
To hear you say, I love you so,
For all the ways you’ll show me how.

O my love, I long to be with you,
O my love, words will never express,
The feelings I have for you inside,
I’ll give my all, just to be with you,

being in your arms, safe and sound,
to see your tender smile again.
Holding me softly, with your tender touch,
being ever so close and never apart.

O my Love I need You so,
my soul is on fire.
My passion and emotion is here for you,
with much desire, I just can’t explain.
My heart is ready to surrender all.

Come to me, I’m ready for love,
I want it to be, that special time!

– David Yearwood

13. I’m Always With You

I light up when you’re here
and when you’re gone
my heart disappears
so I lose myself in our songs

I listen to the words that are us
and I float to your arms
and it’s there that I trust
I will never know any harm

we have ups and downs
but we have something rare
we fight off each other’s frowns
and no one has what we share

at times I cry so much
needing you next to me
needing your touch
it hurts so much it kills me

you shine brighter than any star
and your heart is what I love most
and I hate that you’re too far
because I need you in my arms so

to take your heart and heal it
to hold you and kiss you
my love, I want you to feel it
until then, I’m always with you

– Blair

14. Inhale

I woke,
And I buried my nose in your shirt:
It still smells like you
In your absence.

It is such a comfort,
To me, your lover,
On the small island.

We are far in miles,
But I have your shirt
To inhale.

– Unknown

15. Long Distance Love

How do you wait
At least 3 years
For a possible soul mate
But have no fears

For you, I open my gate
And wish that you were here
But you live in another state
Yet another reason to fear

But I fear because I care
And I care because I love you
It’s a kind of love that is rare
And shared by very few

My love, in every form, is undying
And to lose you in anyway, would mean I’m dying
You are a gift greater than everything
And for you, I’ll do anything

I’ll wait for you, over these next few years
And together we’ll overcome our greatest fears

– Brandon

16. I Can’t Stop Thinking Of You!

I look at the clock,
It says 1:41,
I know thinking of you I’ll never be done.
You run through my mind,
and occupy all my time,
Wondering why you are gone and why you are not mine,
I think of you constantly,
For some reason I can’t stop,
Knowing that for always,
You’ll forever have my heart,
My days go by so slow, because you run through my head.
I said I love you forever,
Isn’t that enough to say,
You also haunt my dreams if you know what I mean,
I wake up often with sweets and creams.
Why do I sleep by myself,
I’m alone in my bed,
I know I’ll be thinking of you,
Till the day I’m dead,
Now still all this thought,
Just run through my brain,
Can’t stop thinking of “blank”
I think I’m going to be insane.

– Jannier

17. Everything is so confusing

Everything is so confusing
not being able to be with you.
It’s making me crazy,
and I don’t know what to do.
You mean everything to me.
I hope we never break apart,
because I’m in love with you
and you have a special place in my heart.
Not a day goes by
that I don’t think about you.
I want to be with you forever.
It’s crazy, but I do.
You took away my pain.
You’re always in my dreams.
I’ll love you forever.
At least that’s how it seems.

– Kirstie

18. I Know It

It was love at first sight,
When I saw you I knew.
Together we would be,
Just me and you.

You’re the only one,
I love you so much.
I’m all alone now,
And I long for your touch.

It seems so long,
Since you have left.
You said you would be back,
I just hope for the best.

It has been three days,
I miss you so…
I wish that I,
Was allowed to go.

You said you would call,
When you arrived.
But when you didn’t,
It made me cry.

I countdown the days,
Until your back in my world.
I still can’t believe,
That you chose me to be your girl.

My love is true,
I know yours is too.
And I can’t wait,
To be back with you.

– Misti Green

19. Miles Away

Long distance
1500 miles
44 days to walk
Who cares? If you love me
As I love you
We’re not apart
Despite the miles
We are together
Together at heart
Distance matters to minds
But hearts don’t care

We fell in love
Long distance
We’ll stay in love
Long distance

Our hearts are together
Though we’re far apart
Though we fell in love
Long distance

– Unknown

20. A Lover’s Patience

Lost is the girl
With the lonely smile
She waits for her love
A long and weary mile
He stole her heart
Before she’d even seen
He’d be her prince
And she’d be his queen
Though far away
She knows in her heart
A connection between them
Cannot be torn apart
Born to love him
All of her life
She awaits his return
With no grief or strife
Love brought them near
And will see them to the end
Together they’ll be,
Their distance time will amend.

– Joy Hensley

21. When I See You Again

When I see you again, it will be like seeing the most beautiful sunrise and the brightest star on the clearest night.

When I see you again, my heart will be filled with love as It was the day you left, never missing a beat growing stronger every passing day.

When I see you again, time will have seemed to stop, thinking only of the future and what it holds.

When I see you again, it can’t come soon enough for it seems like forever.

When I see you again, I will spend the rest of my life making you happier than you’ve ever been, so I never have to not see you again!

– Sterling Seitz

22. Thinking About You

When I ate today at noon
All I could think about was you
Wishing you were here to do what you do
Wishing I could feed you with my spoon
Hoping someday I’ll see your smile again

I don’t know if I can take all this pain
Knowing that I am here and you are there
Thinking about the times we had and will not have

You are the best there ever was and will be
There is nothing to explain you, but lovely
Even when I was sad you made me happy

I just don’t know what to do
I just hope one day, I get to see you

– Gary R. Hess

23. Missing You

There are a thousand things
that I love about you.
When I’m with you
I want to take in every moment
And when we’re apart
Every moment
feels like forever.

So when missing you
almost becomes too much
And the distance seems
almost too hard to bear
When my longing for you
Threatens to drive me mad
You help me make it through.

I take comfort in thinking of your smile
like a ray of sunlight bursting through the dark clouds.
I take comfort in thinking of your laughter
Which is more beautiful than a thousand songs.
I take comfort in thinking of your arms round me
A blanket of the sweetest solace in the world.

I take comfort in thinking of your love
That brings light to my soul
and joy to my heart.

My only wish
Aside from being in your arms
Is that you take comfort, too,
In thinking of my love for you.

– Unknown

24. Miles Between Us

Don’t let the miles between us
Keep our love apart
Just listen close and you will hear
The beating of my heart
No distance, will ever keep
My heart from loving you
There are no more tears for it to weep
For a love that runs so trueI’ll be there with you one day soon
To love you everyday
And then my heart will sing a tune
And you will hear it sayI’ve finally found my one true love
As true as one can be
And now you are all I’m thinking of
Forever stay with me

– Unknown

25. My Love

When I close my eyes
I can hear your voice
I can see your face
I can feel the touch of your lips as we kiss.

When I open my eyes
I see an empty room
Without your beautiful smile lighting it up
And I’m missing you so much it hurts.

I ache to hold you
To be in your arms
To hear your laughter.

Know that even as far apart as we are
My love for you
is as strong as ever.

– Unknown

26. Fire of Our Love

The connection between us
Is perfectly forged
and is so strong
I feel it always
No matter how far apart we are.

The deep spark of our love
Is brighter than ever
And every thought I have about you
Seems to make the distance
Appear smaller
And smaller.
Until –

One day soon
That distance will disappear
And we’ll be free to let our love’s bright spark
Burn into a wildfire.

– Unknown

27. I will Always be here for you

Long distance love, how are you?
Are you thinking of me too?
I thought about you again today,
Just hoping that you are okay,
Can’t you please pick up the phone?
As I sit here all alone.

Long distance love, do you recall?
The times it seemed we had it all,
The times we thought would never end,
But now I need more than a friend,
Everything could be so right,
If you would just come home tonight.

Long distance love, can’t you see?
How much you really mean to me,
Sometimes it seems to be my fate,
To have to sit at home and wait,
But if this is what I have to do,
I will always be here for you

29. Long distance relationship

“Its our last night together.. ”

our bodies lay together
and we stay this way
all through the night
sleeping in each others arms
waiting for the sun to wake
as it starts a new day
we knew in our hearts
this was our way
to say our last goodbye
for once and for all.

The love we once shared
Will survive
But this last night together
was want we wanted to do.
but I know as I walk out the door
this will be a goodbye
maybe we’re crazy .
maybe people wouldn’t agree
but this was the way
we both wanted it to be
You will be move miles away and,

I will miss the way you stare
I will miss the way you share.
How will i kiss you in the midnight
How will i shift you a side.

I think about the distance,
I start to find you in the dark nights.
I dream to see you for an instant.
Without you I question my existence.

When I look at the sky,
I think about the time.
How fast will it fly?
How much will I cry?

Every night …
My arms are holding blankets
Imagining you are in the arms

My heart is set, on that day.
When your work is done,
and you’re home to stay.

I’ll be waiting right here,
with open arms.
To hold you close,
and keep you warm.
I’ll squeeze you gentle,
but hold you tight.
And kiss you all over,
When the time is right.
I’ll express my love,
so you know it’s true.
There’s nothing on earth,
I would not do for you.

I’m proud to be able,
to call you mine.
What a expression,
on your face,

when I pulled the ring,
out of the case.
And I took your hand,
then dropped to my knees.
And said honey please,
will you marry me ?

Growing stronger and stronger,
as each day pass.

Sadness is the feeling I get
When I think of leaving you again.
Know that you’re not just another friend;
You’re someone to whom
My poems I send. ?

Even though we are miles apart
You are never far from my heart
I loved you then
I love you now
It’s always when and
Never how
Take me back to yesterday
All the wonderful things you had to say
I loved you then
I love you now
It’s always when
And never how
I see your eyes
I feel you near
Although you’re not
Really here ?

– Utkarsh yadav

30. There will be a time for us

Just like the sun goes down at night
Just like the moon and stars come out
To light up the sky

Just like every spring has gloomy days
Full of thunderous rain
Before new flowers bloom

Just like the river travels long rough
Miles through cities and towns just to
Flow into the sea for eternity
There will be a time for us.

– Unknown

31. Light Of My Life

The light is shining oh so bright
The light you brought into my life
I have searched so high and low
for my special glow
Before I sleep, I will pray
The Lord will give me that special day
I will let my spirit enjoy the night
To envision my special light
You have given me the gift I seek
To keep my spirit from being oh so weak
I thank the Lord for the shine in you
For helping me understand the gift from you
Unto you, I will say
I thank the Lord for bringing you my way

– Barbara Harkrader

32. For The First Time In My Life

For the first time in my Life
Silence crept like Darkness
Hours felt like Weeks and seconds like Days
Music, movies and crowds had no meaning
Speed, Cars and Bikes found no place in me
Technology did not matter like before
Life did not feel lively anymore

For the first time in my Life
There arouse a feeling of being dead even when alive
Distance felt proportional to time
And Sleep was no where to be found
I was losing the silver lining up the sky
Life was not life anymore

But then,
For the first time in my Life
This Separation made a meaning to my life
Distance felt proportional to Love
The Silver lining grew sharper up the sky
Power of the bond we share built up
And that no barrier is ever to strong
Life felt as a challenge,
A Challenge I knew I have to fight
For things between you and me to get right!

For the first time in my Life
A Realization felt arousing
That for the beautiful life ahead of us
It’s not about me or you, it’s about us
It’s not about just sharing the feeling of togetherness
Trust, Support, Understanding and True Love is what makes us so Special
A Specialty that very few like us are gifted!

For the first time in my Life
Prayers to God felt even Stronger and Powerful
For the Price of separation
God has gifted Guardian Angels to look upon us!

For the first time in my Life
I’ve fallen in Love
A Love so Special and Strong
That falling in love with someone else
Stands no chance in this life or the next!

For the first time in my Life
It feels like this is just the beginning
That this same time would not be the first time
But the next time I don’t have to look for answers
Because for the first time in my Life
Life is worth living for, because
I know the person who loves me as much as I do
From the deepest part of my heart Chidambra, I Love You!

Together Forever.

– Moheem

33. Forever Connected

Every moment we spent together
Has touched our lives, our souls forever.
The things that we shared and learned
Is permanent growth that we’ve earned.

The person that I have grown into today
Did not get there by chance, no way.
I am who I am partly because of you,
And you are YOU because of me, too.

The changes I see
And what I have learned about me
Are a response to how we affected our lives
And what we discover in each other’s eyes.

It is uncertain if we have to part or one day live together.
Either way, we have touched our lives forever!
No matter what the future will show,
No matter what we are told.

We are connected on such a deep level
That no one can remove that, not even the devil.
Our feelings might be different a year from now,
But you are part of me forever somehow.

A part of me will always be you,
And a part of you will always be me.
No matter what happens, that much is certain.
Our souls are one until life closes the curtain.

I will love your forever,
For worse or for better.

You are tattooed in my heart,
And nothing can tear our souls apart.

I will never forget you,
For my love is honest and true.

– Silke Wettergren

34. I Miss You!

Every morning I wake up
Realizing you’re really far away
So I put on my make up
And pray for a good day.

I know God’s watching
And he’ll lead me back to you
I just have to keep living
So he can see me through.

Although you’re not close
And many miles away
I’ll still love you
Even after today.

I really miss you dearly
And really wish I was there
But despite of not having you here
At least I still have air.

– Bailey

35. I Promise

I am giving you this ring as a promise to you
That no matter what, I will always be here and I will always be true.

I promise that I will lie with you and hold you at night
When things throughout your day just don’t seem to be going right.

For you, I would walk a thousand miles and more
Just to see your beautiful smile that I absolutely adore.

I promise that I will make you smile when you feel like crying.
I promise that I will comfort you if you feel like dying.

I promise to steal away your every sorrow and fear.
I promise to wipe away your every tear.

I promise to cherish every minute I spend with you
Until the daylight sky is no longer the color of blue.

Without your love, I do not know what I would do.
I will not have a future unless it involves you.

You’ve changed me for the better, and I have never been so happy.
Now, with you in my life, I can’t picture a world without you and me.

Fate decided it was time for us to be together,
And though our time here on Earth is short, I promise I want you always and forever.

I promise that no matter what may happen, we will make it through.
Please take this ring as a symbol of the love I will always have for you.

Long Distance Poems for a Relative

Long Distance Poems family

Is your favorite relative living in another city? A father or mother working far from home? Maybe you’re homesick and longing to go back to family? Here are some lovely long distance poems to comfort yourself with:

36. You

There’s something in your voice that makes it all alright,
Something in your smile that gets me through the night.
A comfort in your grin that helps my day pass by.
A twinkle in your eyes that lights my darkened sky.
Your posture says “don’t worry” and your laugh, it says “I care”.
That kiss you blow when we say goodbye that says “I’m always there”.
It’s all these things about you I couldn‘t live without.
It’s you that makes me happy, it’s you without a doubt.

– Jessica Phelps

37. Patiently Waiting

My heart is set, on that glorious day.
When your work is done, and you’re home to stay.
I’ll be waiting right here, with open arms.
To hold you close, and keep you warm.
I’ll squeeze you gentle, but hold you tight.
And kiss you all over, when the time is right.
I’ll express my love, so you know it’s true.
There’s nothing on earth, I would not do for you.
Because you’re the one, you’re one-of a kind.
I’m proud to be able, to call you mine.
What a expression, on your face,
when I pulled the ring, out of the case.
And I took your hand, then dropped to my knees.
And said honey please, will you marry me.
Like wind in wildfire , my love is spreading fast,
Growing stronger and stronger, as each day pass.
I’ve waited very patiently, but now you’re home.
Let’s make up the time, that you were gone.

38. Those

My family lives so far away,
I am here and there they stay.
I remember a time of fun and walks
and now I have to deal with locks.
Can you guess where I live now?
It is very windy and very loud.
I miss the quietness of my home.
I miss my family when I am alone.
For now I wait as long as it takes for me to return to the green mountain state.
I miss the fall and even the snow and August is cold here wouldn’t you know.
I remember the kisses they would leave upon my cheek
And I remember chasing my brother by the creek.
I was free to roam wherever I wanted,
But now I have to worry of being murdered and taunted.
I have no friends, I have no foes.
Wish I was with my family those.

– April A. Bean

39. In Your Heart

He was so proud of his little girl
It was her very first day of school.
He walked with her to school that day
and she held his hand all the way.

They walked together quiet and sad
a little girl and her loving dad.
Into the school her father led
but he almost cried when she said ..

.. Daddy, Daddy please don’t go
don’t leave me here all alone
I’ll miss you if you go away, and
I might need you, can’t you stay?

Little Daughter please don’t cry
you’ll be okay so dry your eyes.
You have our memories in your heart
we’re together, though we’re apart.

He sat up front, on her wedding day
and cried as his daughter walked away.
Later that night he watched her dance
he sat there waiting for his chance.

The band started to play their song
father and daughter danced along.
She looked at him and saw a tear
then leaned and whispered in his ear ..

.. Daddy, Daddy I have to go
I hate to leave you all alone
I’ll miss you when I go away
but if you need me then I’ll stay.

Little Daughter I’ll be just fine
I’ll love you always, you are mine.
I have our memories in my heart
we’re together though we’re apart.

She came in his room and kissed his head
then sat next to his hospital bed.
He took her hand and held it tight, and
wished he had the strength to fight.

They sat together quiet and sad
a daughter and her dying dad.
He saw the tears she tried to hide
she looked at him and then she cried ..

.. Daddy, Daddy please don’t go
don’t leave me here all alone
I’ll miss you when you go away
I still need you, you have to stay.

Little Daughter I love you so
I want to stay, but have to go.
I’ll always be here in your heart
we’re together though we’re apart.

– Thomas S. Carver

40. Missing Home

Having to stay away from home, how do u think I feel?
Some say its really hectic, some say it’s no big deal
Saying is one thing and living is another
When every small thing abt home comes to bother

Miss mom n miss my dad
Miss them when things are good, or when they go real bad
Miss them when m happy or when am drowned in tears
Miss them through my phases of overcoming fears

Miss my brother who taught me what to do
Anything big or small, he got me through
Never gave a second thought on how things were to be done
All he could care about was how I could have more fun

A very small family, all staying apart
Parents would just want us to come out smart
But success tastes like nothing when they aren’t around
Only empty happiness all around is found

I wanna get back, get back to them and say
I love you mom and in ur arms, I wanna stay
What will I do with the success without having the family to cherish it
I miss having you around and yes I really miss it

They call it being practical but I call it unfair
Enough of lying on the bed with the same white ceiling to stare
I want my dad’s lap and my brothers teasing to bother me
I wanna get back to being a bird filled with life and is free
A family is what matters the most to me
And that is exactly how I want it to be 🙂

41. I miss my home

I want to go home,
but it’s no longer what I’ve always known.
I cry and try to breathe
But no ones comes to dry my eyes,
it’s hopeless to fight for life.

I miss those days of childhood,
when life was simple and nothing fell apart
I am falling out of my sky
toward the bowels of hell
but no one noticed that I fell,
I hid it so well.

Will anyone come and save me?
I miss my home.
