I sit here holding back tears from my stinging eyes,
I hold them back even though I know everybody cries.
If their happy or their sad,
this I do not know,
but one thing that is for sure is that I will not let these tear drops show.
They might be tears of sadness for you are not here to hold me tight,
they might be tears of joy because I heard your voice tonight.
It could just be the distance,
it could just be the trust,
but I know to breathe I know having you around is a must.
It might just be the memories,
the ones that we shared;
It could just be that when I had no one else I knew that you cared.
Good or bad, happy or sad,
I love you,
and your love is all I need.

This was written for my boyfriend who lives 2 1/2 hours away. It sounds so short of a distance, but so many can relate.
