Ways Away: A Valentine's Day Poem



I hope your love will warm me

Ways away

For your love is what kept me alive

Every single day


I would be happy to remain where I am

But I truly can’t stay

But with your love

I think I’ll find my way


I was thinking about their touch

And I really don’t know much

About what to think or say

Or why I feel this way


Because I’ve never really loved

A person like this before

But you have everything I’d want

And probably more


Of course

I will love you for your mind

People like you

Are so difficult to find


And I know for sure

That you’re one of a kind

And I am ready whenever you are

If there will ever be a time


I hope we forever talk

Ways away

For your captivating voice kept me here

Every single day


I tried to cherish everything

Knowing I couldn’t stay

But with your love

I can truly say


That our bond is legendary

Because you are just extraordinary

You’re the best in every way

Your body to me is secondary


And I really hope we have time

Ways away

Your warm, tender love kept me well

Every single day


I wish you well

Each and every day

Knowing full-well

That I can’t stay


But with full breath

I can say….

That with your love

I will find my way


Ways away, ways away

Ways away, ways away

The tale of military love

That still lives today
