So Far Away Yet Always So Near

A poem I found about long distance relationship. Who among you here who have been in a long distance relationship? Ummm, well let me say, I’m one of you. So I guess we all can relate in this poem. 😐

long distance relationship
I lay in my bed and think about you
I love you so much I don’t know what to do
I feel your warmth at my side
The pain in my heart moves to my eyes
So far away yet always so near
You are the reason I am still here.

I await the times when we can talk
I await the times we can finally hold hands and walk
To feel you for real… so close to me
The happiest person in the world is what you would make me.

Your eyes shine like a million suns
You shine more brightly than anyone
Your smile so sweet can help but make me smile
It stops my world even for a little while
I await the time when my hand is in yours
To hear you say those 3 little words.

There are still no words I can say to describe
My heart it aches and my eyes they cry
But when we talk my heart flies
you always wipe away the tears I cry.

Even though you aren’t here
And I miss you so much my dear
I’ll love you forever and ever
I’ll always love you my far away lover.

Why, Mommy? Why?

I just saw this very sad poem from google+ posted by my friend Johanna. Since I very liked it so let me re-post it to my blog -sigh- D: suddenly misses my mom and dad.

Why, Mommy? Why?
Why don’t we say I Love You anymore?
Why does Daddy hit you when he gets home?
Why does he make us go to bed
With no dinner, bedtime story, or kiss goodnight?
Why is he away so much
And comes home walking and talking funny?
Why does he get madder when you try to keep him from hitting us?
Why, Mommy? Why?

Why, Mommy? Why?
Why do we say we love each other when we don’t?
Why does Daddy kiss you when he gets home, and then yell the rest of the night?
Why do we eat “cheerful” meals together
While Daddy says he’ll hurt us?
Why does he come home each night
To drink the alcohol that’s been drawing me in?
Why don’t you try to protect us? Why were you never there for me?
Why, Mommy?
Why?
