Miles apart, my mind wonders, “Does she really love me?” My heart answers quickly, “Yes, she does. She needs you and wants only you!”. Oh, what an adversary the thinking mind can be to a loving heart.

Were you to
be able to look
and into your
the same way
that I do–
you would have
no doubt at all
I truly do
All is well, but I miss you with an aching hunger to be near you. Only you can sate my yearning; only you my love. All the sweeter the time will be when next I hold you again.
Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer Kahlil Gibran
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.
From “Winnie-the-Pooh” by A. A. Milne
to be apart
for so long.
we can be
all the time.
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…
Written by a writer unknown/anonymous
in my day,
in my sky,
in my ocean
and the beat
in my heart…
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.
From “A Million Little Pieces” by American writer James Frey
…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?
American writer, lecturer, and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson
…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.
From Happening’s song “See You in September” by Wayne/Edwards
…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.
Hungarian journalist writer and poet János Arany
