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.

A Lover's Patience

© Joy Hensley

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.
