I love you.
I always will.
Need I explain?
Three words for you,
I. Love. You.

I am so sorry,
I am not always there for you.
Do you miss me when I am away?
I miss you,
I love you.

I love you.
Why do you love me?
I live so far away,
I am not there for you,
Although I wish I could be.
Why do you love me?

I love you.
I would do anything for you.
Do you know how much I wish was there with you?
I would give anything to live near you,
'Stead of on the other side of the continent.
I miss you so much.

I love you.
I wish you were here.
I wish I was there.
I wish we could be together.
I love you.

Last stanza: "I wish you were here. I wish I was there." Switch places. Profit?

Anyways... I enjoyed the simplicity of this poem, which envelopes a much more complex dilemma. I am also in a similar situation, yet the distance is not geographical, but rather temporal.

I like how the last stanza is filled with everything from the earlier stanzas. I do agree that it could be more original, but i think this is fine too!

It's good. However, try to avoid stereotypical ideas and topics. Try to come up with new and creative things, or even a new way of wording the old things. It is also a little repetitive, but I'm not saying it's bad! and don't stop writing!!

I can relate to this. I've been in a long distance relationship for a year now, and I've many long distance friends. Good luck with your relations to this person. :3
