“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

I will miss you
With all the naive love
of an innocent heart
Big eyes lifted to
the moon
Will you look at the
same one tonight?

I will miss you
with all the bitter passion
of a rent soul
I will blame you for
not being here
For everything
that has gone wrong
For everything that will

I will miss you
with all the music
that flows through me
into my head
into my heart
Out of my fingertips
All the song we shared
All the ones we haven't

I will miss you
with all the happy innocence
of a darling child
So certain you are
worth the wait
grin turned up at
the mere thought of you

I will miss you
with every fibre
of my being
With every love lost sigh
and every passing thought

And, unless you come
back to my arms
I will miss you until the
tides stop,
the moon cries
and the stars
drop from the sky

The author's comments:
This poem I wrote for my amazing long distance boyfriend. I know it sounds kinda sappy, ok, really sappy, but the sentiments are honest, and I tried to work as much passion as possible into it. I don't see a huge deep message in here, I just hope that I can relate what I'm feeling.
