Long Distance Love

They ask me if I’m married and I always choose to say,
“Yes I surely am, he’s just can’t be here today”
I don’t feel the need to tell them for they don’t need to know,
The truth is my darling, that you left me long ago.

I don’t want them to feel awkward or take them by surprise,
From where I am standing I’m not telling any lies,
You’re always right beside me but for now we are apart,
I don’t live a single day without you in my heart.

I know they often wonder why they never see,
This man that I speak of when he belongs to me,
So many parties and they see me there alone,
I know they want to question why you’ve left me on my own.

I’m happy for I know that you’re with me day and night,
I hear you reassure me that I’m going to be alright,
I hear your voice so clearly whispering my name,
We sleep in separate rooms yet together all the same.

I’m so proud you are my husband and I’m proud to be your wife,
You are the only man that I want in my life,
That’s why I can stand here so solid and so strong,
Our love it is so “right” but the situation’s wrong.

They ask me if I’m married and I always choose to say,
“Yes, I surely am, he just can’t be here today”
I know that if you could it is where you’d want to be,
Instead you’re on the other side waiting there for me

An Love Agony At 10:30 short poem

At 10:30, Silence Dispersed,every edge withdrew with dark, The moon was pale, still brightening as diamond spark, At the tree, an owl hoot, at surface dogs barked. Sudden, I heeded, the sound of footsteps was appearing from the street, exulted

Love Is In Air long poem

True love is something so elusive. True love between two people is the most precious of gifts, Falling in love is not just an expression. Love is a powerful force that cannot be dissuaded. Love requires a lot of faith.
