Distance separates two hearts
that used to beat as one.
Time spins forever forward
with each rising of the sun.
His hands are in another land
a place I will never see.
He’s so far across the ocean
yet his hearts still here with me.
I close my eyes and picture him
I miss his face so much.
I need to taste his mouth on mine
yearn to feel his gentle touch.
His scent lingers on his pillow
It’s held tight within my arm.
God speed his love back to me
and keep him from all harm.
Without him here beside me
nothing in my world seems right.
I’ll close my eyes and dream him here
Another sleepless night.
