The days come and go quickly. I wish more of each one was spent with you. Living separate lives is becoming more and more challenging. Spending nights without you is sometimes almost unbearably difficult.

There is space between us right now. Stepping back to take stock of things is healthy for both of us. Already I know my feelings for you are even deeper than I thought before. All I can do is hope you are making similar discoveries.
Lebanese artist, poet, and writer Kahlil Gibran
Let there be spaces
in your togetherness,
and let the winds of
the heavens dance
Love one another but
make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a
moving sea between
of your souls.
My heart is brightly alive and aware because of my love for you within it. Today we are separated by hundreds of miles, yet I know you are faithfully waiting for me to come home. I love you…
You left me long ago. My mistakes were too big for you to forget. It’s been years since I held you or we kissed, but I cherish you as the love of my lifetime. There has been no contender since, nor do I believe there will ever be.
…fills me when a man walks by wearing your cologne. I think of that scent as yours alone and never quite right on anyone else. Did you know when you’re away I go to sleep on your pillow so I can smell you?
…makes me want to be with you so badly now, but the certainty of what we share helps me be calm and patient. What we share is worth waiting for even if we are never together again until we get to Heaven.
…that is given time, heals. Our days apart brought a clear knowing of how much you mean to me. Alone in the quiet within myself, I listened to my heart and it whispered loudly, “you love him still with all that you are”.
Dutch-born Catholic priest and writer Henri Nouwen
…cares nothing about our plans, where we think we’re headed or what choices we have made. Love seeks only its mirrored self reflected back from another heart and will defy all logic, rational thought and common sense to obtain it.
…retains its substance through distance and time when we are separated. To hear your voice I only have to close my eyes. Then I remember something sweet you said to me and feel the echoes of our last embrace.
…builds anticipation to get home and see you again. When a week has separated us, the first moment together again is sweet and magical.
