Poems about Long Distance Relationships

Let's face it, long distance relationships are difficult. But the fact is, love doesn't care about area codes. Sometimes you find that perfect someone lives in another city, state, country or continent. And while it's not easy maintaining a relationship through phone calls, texts, emails and video chats, long distance relationships do have their benefits. For example, there aren't many things more romantic than being reunited with the one you love after being separated for some time. Distances create longing, desire, a yearning to be in the physical presence of that special person, something others might find lacking in their relationship. Though long distance relationships require more work, it is precisely for that reason that they can be incredibly rewarding.

14 Wonderful Long Distance Love Poems - Poetry for Far Away Lovers

By Sterling Seitz

This poem is for the one you love when you finally get to see them after a long period of time

When I see you again, it will be like seeing the most beautiful sunrise and the brightest star on the clearest night.

When I see you again, my heart will be filled with love as It was the day you left, never missing a beat growing stronger every passing day.

When I see you again, time will have seemed to stop, thinking only of the future and what it holds.

When I see you again, it can't come soon enough for it seems like forever.

When I see you again, I will spend the rest of my life making you happier than you've ever been, so I never have to not see you again!

By Joy Hensley

I am in a long distance relationship of about 350 miles, better measured in smiles. I knew from the moment I saw him that he would be worth every lonely night I'd have to spend without him. He works in Wisconsin for a hospital up there and I live in our hometown. We knew from the beginning that one of us would have to make a sacrifice eventually. We are working on those details, but he will soon be making his way home to me and I will be here, waiting patiently.

Lost is the girl
With the lonely smile
She waits for her love
A long and weary mile
He stole her heart
Before she’d even seen
He’d be her prince
And she’d be his queen
Though far away
She knows in her heart
A connection between them
Cannot be torn apart
Born to love him
All of her life
She awaits his return
With no grief or strife
Love brought them near
And will see them to the end
Together they’ll be,
Their distance time will amend.

By Jessica Phelps

My "Best Friend" has been in jail for 3 years now. I cannot wait for him to come home. He is the one person that truely makes me happy.

There’s something in your voice that makes it all alright,
Something in your smile that gets me through the night.
A comfort in your grin that helps my day pass by.
A twinkle in your eyes that lights my darkened sky.
Your posture says “don’t worry” and your laugh, it says “I care”.
That kiss you blow when we say goodbye that says “I’m always there”.
It’s all these things about you I couldn‘t live without.
It’s you that makes me happy, it’s you without a doubt.

By Tina Shondrick

Written for my boyfriend who is in jail, trying to let him know that I love him and he doesn't have to worry about losing me. All my Love, Tina

IF you only knew that falling for you was the last
thing on my mind….

IF you only knew how sexy you are
and how I thought that body of yours was so fine..

IF you only knew that when you put on your sweet charm;
I feel myself melting right into your arms…..

IF you only knew when you whisper baby talk to me
I try so hard to hold back my laughter unsuccessfully......

IF you only knew how happy I felt when I opened up my eyes
and there you still were right by my side....

IF you only knew that sometimes I thought
maybe I should leave and just be on my way…..

IF you only knew how my heart would ache
at the thought of not seeing you each day…..

IF you only knew that from the start
your magic touch had captured my heart…..

If you only knew that I want all Haters to know, there''s no chance of breaking us up;
our love is a solid, strong unbreakable bond…….

IF you only knew how time stands still for me
when were laying in each others arms…..
my legs are tangled up with yours
and no one can do me any harm……

IF you only knew how much I love you now….
IF you only knew how much I care…..
IF you only knew you're in my blood…..
then you would realize that only you
are my everlasting love…..

By Yusif Yaqoob

I wrote this poem to describe that my life has been like a journey and how I've always walked alone in the dark. Then I find some form of ''light'' which I use to describe as my ''love'' for this girl. However because we live so far away, I claim that I'm heading in the right direction now to reach my destination meaning the day we re-unite or marry. In essence, the moral is that time can never erode your true love.

Through the darkness, there came a light
Though so far but yet so bright.
I close my eyes and look deep insight..
I walk this darkness without a fright.

I clutch this image like a precious sight,
The one that sets my heart alight.
I hold that thought and now I write,
With the thought of us on this night.

I travel this road to find affection
I now edge closer and taste perfection.
The darkness evades, I've found protection
I reach this light to build my connection.

My strength has now so briskly grown,
I no longer feel I travel alone.
I continue to proceed on this empty path,
The wait is long but I show no wrath.

The star may seem so far away,
I set fourth my travels to meet that day.
I hold my faith and wait these years,
So far I've come, its worth those tears.

I stand, I sit and now I stare,
I look beyond me and see you there.
I've found the light and now I smile,
I've found my strength to crawl this mile.

I accept love like its my treat,
The thought is real, I'm now complete.
I hear sweet voices in my head,
They say my path is clear ahead.

Some just try but yet they fail,
The unconditional love that we prevail.
I had my freedom, I made this choice,
I found my love, I now rejoice.

I never believed I'd find this love,
Like that beautiful star from above.
I questioned love and what I feel
With you I learnt my love is real.

By David Yearwood

Love knows no distance, we must make the distance shorter, express how you feel, what you want, express your desires, needs and wants, love can be that real feeling!

My love, how much I want to be there with you,
To feel your touch and see your smile.
To hear you say, I love you so,
For all the ways you'll show me how.

O my love, I long to be with you,
O my love, words will never express,
The feelings I have for you inside,
I'll give my all, just to be with you,

being in your arms, safe and sound,
to see your tender smile again.
Holding me softly, with your tender touch,
being ever so close and never apart.

O my Love I need You so,
my soul is on fire.
My passion and emotion is here for you,
with much desire, I just can't explain.
My heart is ready to surrender all.

Come to me, I'm ready for love,
I want it to be, that special time!


It's hard to be away from someone you love, and it's def hard on me to be away from him.

I light up when you're here
and when you're gone
my heart disappears
so I lose myself in our songs

I listen to the words that are us
and I float to your arms
and it's there that I trust
I will never know any harm

we have ups and downs
but we have something rare
we fight off each other's frowns
and no one has what we share

at times I cry so much
needing you next to me
needing your touch
it hurts so much it kills me

you shine brighter than any star
and your heart is what I love most
and I hate that you're too far
because I need you in my arms so

to take your heart and heal it
to hold you and kiss you
my love, I want you to feel it
until then, I'm always with you

By Kirstie Dorgan

When I first met my fiance, he had to go away to work for 3 loooooong months. It was very hard but made us stronger.

I love this man who is away from me
and I think I've ruined us with my jealousy
it's not the way I want it to be
I am my own worst enemy

I love this man who is not around
to pick me up when I am down
to shut me up when I say too much
he's just not here for me to touch

I love this man more than anyone ever
and it scares me as we've not long been together

I know that we both have a past
and I know that I have to get over that fast
I love this guy and I want us to last
as I know that we both will have a real blast!

So I love this guy who is not here
and the love that I feel is very rare
and even though he is not near
my love is with him everywhere.

By Chevonne

This poem I wrote to my bf letting him know that I really do miss him when I'm not with him

If I say the words I miss you....
Does it just become a meaningless phrase?
or does it have sentimental values that last for more then just a few days.
Do your knees go weak when the words have been said,
the goose bumps, the chills, none you regret
Who could imagine that 3 little words
Could have such an effect and make you feel like love birds
Well I will admit and I will agree
That the words "I miss you" means a whole lot to me
And right now I want everybody to know
I miss my sweetie, and I'm never letting go...

By Carol Voccia

I met a Canadian man who
In friendship shared
His story of
Love in truest
She was the morning glow
Who’s eyes sparkled gem like in brilliant
Birds and wind sang in her spirit hair
Cradling his love in her soul
His heart in her hands

His earth a happy song

And in cruelest shift of unexpected
Handed back in splintered
He’s heart
Bleeding in his hands
His river of tears never stopped
Lapping on edges of rugged rock

The seasons layered themselves in years
He searched falling in beds
And potent parlors
Of she forms looking
Crying in empty arms
And hollow love taking each as steps
To the next

Then he saw her
Profiled in a search looking for
That was lost
A maple leafed citizen living among
Puget Sound Yanks
His Canadian hat was willing to breach the
Bordered line,
Steal her back to their loony home

His heart leaped and ran the mile
Toward her tender kiss
But tales still sad this time around
She could not leave nor wanted to
And in a second she broke him

His soul turning to sand

Through his eyes I read his trust and looked
In pained pitted core
My own life looked as sand in houred glass
Sifting through shards of red
My eyes are yours, I said to him
My love on your side of the waving leaf
Not to me would he venture or
Risk his heart
Me here; him there
And I, too, still look among the
Stones of tearing rivers
My own heart cast on ragged rock

Bleeding still

By B. Hearne

I made this poem when I was sitting at the bus stop after school one day. I live in Australia, but my girlfriend lives in England... This is for you, Kate; I love you.

As I walk through the darkness,
My soul searches for a light.

A light which will guide me
Through the darkest and toughest times,
Never flickering or fading.

This body of light will always be
The one thing in this world
Keeping me on the right path...

By Steve Wilson

This poem was written soon after I was stationed overseas, away from my girlfriend.

I am gleaming opal
Shining, Shining

I am faded porcelain
Breaking, Breaking

Dark night meets darker sea

I am slipping
Can you feel me?



Entwine your fingers with mine
Give me something to hold
Something to hope
Across the miles pull me to you
Safely into your embrace

Catch me
Catch me before I slip

Forever out of reach


Have your bestfriend or girl friend, and she's gone to a another country for vacation and you miss her. This is the same thing that is happening to me, so if you are in the same thing read it or if not still go ahead and please vote if you liked it. :-)

I look at the clock,
It says 1:41,
I know thinking of you I'll never be done.
You run through my mind,
and occupy all my time,
Wondering why you are gone and why you are not mine,
I think of you constantly,
For some reason I can't stop,
Knowing that for always,
You'll forever have my heart,
My days go by so slow, because you run through my head.
I said I love you forever,
Isn't that enough to say,
You also haunt my dreams if you know what I mean,
I wake up often with sweets and creams.
Why do I sleep by myself,
I'm alone in my bed,
I know I'll be thinking of you,
Till the day I'm dead,
Now still all this thought,
Just run through my brain,
Can't stop thinking of "blank"
I think I'm going to be insane.

By David L Yearwood

I sit and wait, with hope in my heart, one day we will be, together, forever. Good night my love, I'll be dreaming of you!

I am saying good night, it's so hard to do,
you are not here with me, but many miles away,
My heart is empty, and lonely inside,
As I wipe my tears, falling from my face.

I close my eyes, while going to sleep,
with sadness inside, I begin to weep.
I remember suddenly, what you said to me,
Just meet me in the clouds, we'll enjoy the ride.

When distance is a task, it can keep us apart,
Remember, I still hold you, close to my heart.
we will float through the clouds, till the miles are gone,
Just close your eyes, we'll pretend we're together.

I can see the clouds, oh, how beautiful they are,
I sit and wait, with hope in my heart,
one day we will be, together, for ever.
Good night my love, I'll be dreaming of you!
