Monday Musings: Long Distance

Long Distance

Sometimes I can’t remember all the days spent without you in my arms.

Those days when I would fall asleep
with a laptop on my pillow
so I could imagine sleeping beside you
feel so far away now.

Those nights when we would stay up late,
whispering softly into the phone,
so we could squeeze in just a few more
moments before sleep would overtake us.

There was a time where we waited impatiently
for plane tickets.

There was a time we had to share teary goodbyes
at the airport.

Sometimes I can’t remember all the days spent without you in my arms.

Those days when we spent so much time
counting down the years, the months,
the days, the hours, and the minutes
until at last you were in my arms again.

Those nights when we’d dream of the
distance closing between us and
all of the things we’d do together…
they aren’t just dreams anymore.

Now we get to spend our days sneaking kisses in the kitchen, dancing to
giggles and imaginary music.

Now we get to spend our nights asleep beside each other, wrapped up in
warm embraces and puppy kisses.

Sometimes I can’t remember all the days spent without you in my arms.

But when I do, it makes the time I get with you now all the more special.
