Poetry from within

The Miles Mean Nothing

The miles may have parted us;

True, I do not see you every day,

For this war has taken me away.

But know this: That borders and time differences cannot stand in the way

Of my heart and how it feels about you.

Love always finds its way.

All my waking moments are filled with thoughts of you,

Hoping that you are well in whatever you do.

Longing to be by your side-

Yet I wake up in the morning alone

Realising my wishes have fallen on deaf ears

I am still in a war-zone!

Sometimes it feels as if we are joined by a cord;

Our souls tethered together-

Please know that my admiration for you will never falter

Nor my love ever weather.

And if I could tell you just one thing, let it be this:

That I am truly yours and I will endeavour to get home to you

So that we can be together-forever.
