The Sun shines at its brightest

There, I saw you at your finest

That Smile, it never leaves my mind

I want to own it, so I'll be kind

Your ways and words are so enticing

Your entire self is mesmerizing

Though we are distant and apart

My string of love wants your heart

"Lub-dub, Lub-dub!" All I can hear

My heart is bursting, I can't bear

My darling, what have you done to me?

You took my breath away, let it be!

"Lub-dub, Lub-dub!" All I can hear

The street noises pass, Still, I don't care

My crazy heartbeats, All I want to hear


I wish you to hear me and be near

For now, linger, my love, as if we are close

My Darling, I love you from afar

I'm happy to hear your thoughts, Femi. I believe that perceptions about love differs to each other. Well, that's the beauty of love. It's mysterious.

Thank you so much for appreciation, Femi.

I am sorry to say l dont believe in distant love. This is because the two parties concerned will put up their best behavior a kind of facade . It is difficult to connect on a deeper level and both partie are limited to phone calls,skype or emails. Having attraction to a persons looks sweet words is not love.Anyway l like the poem

It is a challenging stage of the relationship. However, with two hearts connected, they can close the distance.

Thank you, Lorna.

It must be so difficult being in a long distance relationship, however, it is said that absence makes the heart grow fonder. I loved this touching poem Bambe full of longing and love.
