Even though we’re not together
my heart says you’re here.
Though there may be a certain distance between us,
with each heartbeat
we are that much closer to being in each other’s arms.
The test of love is not when we are together…
It comes when we are not together
and realize that despite the distance,
love is still there.
I can love you with the distance between our hearts.
contrary to what the cynics say,
distance is not for the fearful,
it is for the bold.
It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone
in exchange for a little time with the one they love.
It’s for those knowing a good thing when they see it,
even if they don’t see it nearly enough.
