Love This Man by Kirstie Dorgan
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. songs
The miles are long and far and wide,
But my love for you will never subside.
My heart will continue strong and true,
Steadfast in my love for you.
You never need to fret or fear;
My only love is for you my dear.
It hurts to be so far from you,
But a love like ours will make it through.
Keep holding on a little longer;
Our love will keep on growing stronger.
Three Little Words by Chevonne
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 than just a few days?
Do your knees go weak when the words have been said,
the goosebumps, 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...
Dreams of Distant Lovers
on phone in bed
I live for the moment my dreams begin
Because that's when I dream of you.
The day means nothing without you beside me
But when night falls, I'll dream your love anew.
Until I can finally have you in my arms
My dreams will have to see me through.
I'll be with you for hours in my dreams
Until the fall of the morning dew.
When we're finally together again
That's the moment my dreams come true.
Piece of You
When said you had to go,
I knew I'd never make it through
Unless I had a piece of you
To help me make it through the day
And help me keep the tears at bay.
So I keep a bit of you
Inside my heart through all I do
So when I end up feeling blue,
It's there to brighten up my mood.
A bit of your laughter, your smile, too,
It's there inside my heart so true.
I keep it close and hold it tight
Because you're my sweetest
love and light.
I Miss You Poem
There are a thousand things
that I love about you.
When I'm with you
I want to take in every moment
And when we're apart
feels like forever.
So when missing you
almost becomes too much
And the distance seems
almost too hard to bear
When my longing for you
Threatens to drive me mad
You help me make it through.
I take comfort in thinking of your smile
like a ray of sunlight bursting through the dark clouds.
I take comfort in thinking of your laughter
Which is more beautiful than a thousand songs.
I take comfort in thinking of your arms around me
A blanket of the sweetest solace in the world.
I take comfort in thinking of your love
That brings light to my soul
and joy to my heart.
My only wish
Aside from being in your arms
Is that you take comfort, too,
In thinking of my love for you.
When I See You Again by Sterling Seitz
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!
You by Jessica Phelps
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.

Long distance relationship Bible verses
The Bible was written as a guideline through life. Love is part of life. Love is the greatest commandment in the Bible. So, what does the Bible have to say about long distance relationships? Below are some verses from the Bible that encourage love and chase away all forms of doubt. Remember, a couple that prays together stays together.
- Genesis 31:49
And Mizpah, for he said, “The Lord watch between you and me when we are out of one another's sight.
- 1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
- 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
- Song of Solomon 3:1-11
On my bed by night I sought him whom my soul loves; I sought him, but found him not. I will rise now and go about the city, in the streets and in the squares; I will seek him whom my soul loves. I sought him, but found him not. The watchmen found me as they went about in the city. “Have you seen him whom my soul loves?” Scarcely had I passed them when I found him whom my soul loves. I held him, and would not let him go until I had brought him into my mother's house, and into the chamber of her who conceived me. I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the does of the field, that you not stir up or awaken love until it pleases. ...
- Song of Solomon 2:1-17
I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys. As a lily among brambles, so is my love among the young women. As an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. With great delight, I sat in his shadow, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love. Sustain me with raisins; refresh me with apples, for I am sick with love. …

The bitter truth:
How do you keep a long distance relationship strong?
Long distance relationships are not easy and that is something that we all agree on. That, however, does not mean that they are impossible. What should you do to make long distance relationships last?
1. Communicate regularly
Communication is key to keeping a long distance relationship going. I know both of you are busy, maybe with school or work. This should not be an excuse as you cannot be studying or working all the time. Make a schedule when both of just stop all that you are doing and make a phone call, send a text message or even a video call.
2. Get into details
I know this might seem irrelevant but trust me, it works. When the two of you are talking, tell your partner about even the minor things. Tell them what you ate for breakfast, tell them who you bumped into on your way to work, tell them the interesting conversation you had with your colleague. This creates a bond and trust between the two of you.
3. Make use of technology
In this time and era, technology is everywhere and this is highly beneficial for people who are in long distance relationships. First of all, use social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to show that you are together with the person so that people do not go on assuming that you are single and try to go after you. Tag your partner on posts you want him or her to see, post pictures with them e.t.c. You can also use applications like Skype to video call them and the likes.
4. Visit them regularly
I know they say absence makes the heart grow fonder and that the more you are away from the people you love, the more you love them. This may be true but also remember, out of sight out of mind. Even though the two of you are far away, both of you should make plans to see each other. Surprise your partner and visit her or him at their home, set dates where you can meet, even in a motel, and just spend the time together.
5. Plan to do the same thing at the same time
Just because the two of you are no longer together does not mean that you need to stop doing the same things. Schedule to cook the same meal on a particular day, watch the same movie and discuss it through the phone as if the two of you are together and the likes. This helps to keep the bond that was there before.
6. Learn new things together
Enroll for cooking classes, or gym, or even music classes together even though the two of you are far apart. This helps you to have something to do on those free days. This also helps keep you out of making mistakes for an idle mind is the devil's workshop.
7. Be honest
I do not think there is a way I can stress how much honesty is important in a relationship. Be honest with your partner in all ways. Do not, by any chance, cheat on your partner, that never makes things better. Tell your partner about that man that has been trying to hit on you, tell your partner about how the Christmas office party was. This creates trust between the two of you.
