Love At A Distance

by Kevin Askew   Jun 13, 2008

Waiting for the clock to tick
Yet it ticks all around the dial
Dreaming of your beautiful face
That I havent seen for a while

How much longer can it feel
My eyes well up with tears
What if something stops you coming
This just adds to all my fears

A few weeks feel like a year or more
Surely this is hell on earth
I miss you darling do you know how much?
Every second I cherish your worth.

We share so many phone calls
But they cannot nearly replace
The feeling of your loving arms
In our warm and tender embrace.

The power of the love we feel
Makes our days together fly
So much in so little time
When you leave I have to cry.

I know that you'll be back soon
Though it doesnt heal the pain
Of all the waiting I'll endure
Until you're here with me again.

    When the one you love is away or a far distance from you, minutes seem like hours, etc., until they return. The wait is long and hard but worth it. Well done.

    Nice write. In the second stanza, second line I'm not quite sure if you meant my eyes "swell" up with tears or how it is right now which is my eyes "well" up with tears. I know I come across typos in my writing countless amounts of times.
