Long Distance Romance

Long Distance Romance

A Poem by James Takeo Panton

One million miles
I might as well be
It seems that far
Between you and me
We connect from a distance
Too far to touch
The few words you text
To me, they mean much
Over long distance
Words we will trade
Of dreams that we hope for
Of plans that we’ve made
Sweet words and feelings
Online are conveyed
I feel a little less lonely
And not so afraid
We are so close
Yet so far apart
Yet you are always near
And close in my heart
Alone in my thoughts
Is where you shall be
So that you may remain
Always beside me

Great work here.. I really liked this one.. yes distance will not stop feelings.. so true.. your emotions flow so nicely in writing.. line by line.. telling a true story.. I liked the whole piece but the lines:

Over long distanceWords we will tradeOf dreams that we hope forOf plans that we've madeSweet words and feelingsOnline are conveyedI feel a little less lonelyAnd not so afraidWe are so closeYet so far apartYet you are always nearAnd close

I have many that have moved away that I do speak to online and by phone.. they are still close in my heart.. this poem I am saving to my favorites as it helps me remember that the ones we love are close where it matters.. including those important ones who have left us.. thank you so much for sharing!! =)

"So that you may remain
Always beside me"

I enjoy this, it's the most amazing thing to watch humanity base it's self on the people we let walk beside us.
Eventually they are as much apart of us as ourselves. That is why distance is beatable. I proved it once. Very good.

beautifully written!!!!

"We are so close
Yet so far apart
Yet you are always near
And close in my heart
Alone in my thoughts
Is where you shall be
So that you may remain
Always beside me"

loved these lines...the distance just doesn't seem to matter...
can relate to it completely...reminds me of someone really close...whose miles away...

a lovely piece indeed! good job!

keep it up!
