LONG DISTANCE LOVE
Driving in through the iron gates
A beautiful garden in front we gaze
Bluebells swaying on either side
A humming bird chirping to my right
Waiting in the car for you to check us in
My heart in my mouth I sadly think
A great job opportunity though it is
Can our love survive this stint?
Tomorrow you will go away
Today is all we have to embrace
As you may not return before long
We have to make the most of today
The Daisies, Tulips, Carnations, all
Are mute spectators to my aching heart
How do I just let you go away?
Why can’t we together, forever stay?
Quietly we sit by the fire place
My grieving heart why can’t it just wait?
Let me enjoy the warmth of your embrace
Tomorrow is as yet far away
