The distance may be great.
And all we have is the phone.
We may stay up extremely late,
But we know our fate is full known.

Because I love you and you love me.
I know we'll be together again soon.
Being with you is all I think about, baby.
And fate still rings that beautiful tune.

I get butterflies in my stomach,
Just at the mere thought of you.
You know, you left me awestruck?
But texting or talking will have to make-do.

And I'll also keep dreaming of us,
Until we can see each other again.
I'll always love you forever, I promise.
Distance may be great, but it can't win.
eh... No song title this time. Sorry loves.

Just my interpretation of those long-distance relationships. I hope it sounds like what someone might think when in this kind of relationship.

This definitely sums it up. Ive been in a long distance relationship, and to be very blunt and honest.. they are the best kind. You know that the person loves you for you, and you have to trust each other and support each other more. 

I love my boyfriend and I trust him completely with my ENTIRE life. I just have this... this gut feeling.. instinct deep inside my heart that we will be together forever.:happybounce: Love in the Air

the sweetest poem I've ever read! Love it! Thank you for this!
Since we've been together (a little over a year), my boyfriend and I have seen each other a total of 5 times. Since we've known each other (2 yrs), we've seen each other 7 times. It sucks when you meet a great person at something such as a summer camp, like we did, only to find out they live in another part of the state. Now I'm at college in a different state while he stayed in his area. It's been rough, I've only seen him once since school started in the fall. I finally saw him today for the first time in 6 months. Happiest I've been in a very long time.

Your poem is extremely accurate of a long distance relationship. Love the last line :D
