Love From A Distance
John Roberts

How I long, to be with you,
And how my heart does bleed.
My love for you, burns deep within,
An all-consuming need.
My love for you, is still as strong,
As the day when we first met.
And, as we, go through life, together,
The stronger it will get.
Being away from you, tears me apart,
I can hardly bear the strain.
Iím just longing for that day to come,
When youíre in my arms again.
The days drag past, so slowly,
It seems so long to go.
Until Iím with you, once more, my love,
I really miss you so.
I know sometimes, Iím not much fun,
When Iím there with you,
But, just know this, my darling,
My love for you is true.
