I feel you, yet cannot touch-
I need you, yet cannot grasp-
For what I want so much,
~If only you were here.~

I seek you- yet cannot see-
I yearn, yet still I wait-
For what will soon be,
~If only you were here.~

I daydream, and you’re next to me…
But only in my daydreams…
Our time has yet to come, you see-
~If only you were here.~

I send you unseen smiles-
From screen to screen-
Living in this dream-
~If only you were here.~

I hold you, with silent arms-
Waiting to materialize-
Waiting to belong-
~If only you were here.~

I love with growing affection-
Blowing you kisses in the wind-
Amazed at our total connection-
~If only you were here.~

I can’t be friends with patience-
For many more lonely days-
I need to REALLY feel you-
*Wishing you were here.*

Devina, this is beautiful...

Being seperated from one that we love can be quite hard. . .

Dreams can come true my friend. . .I should know. . .and I hope that yours does too. . .

Ah, sweet devina, good things come to those who wait.  Your dreams will be yours to hold soon enough.  Promise.

This is really beautiful...I feel the yearning.  It is hard to be seperate, yet so close.  Don't do like I did and just write alot of beautiful poetry about it, do something about it!  LOL  Drive a few miles if you have to, and find out for yourself, instead of just wondering and aching for something you want.  I told Christopher once..."Pondering only steals away possibility."  You'll never know if you don't try!  And it only drives you mad, the longer you put it off.  (the knowing)   -pFF   Miss you, you funny girl!

Devina, I'm trying. I really am
But I am in a real jam.
I know you really want me there
But you forgot to tell me - where!

I've driven through all 50 states
(That's why I'm getting there so late)
And, though you say how much you care,
You still forget to tell me where!

I even tried the Yellow Pages
Because I know how your lust rages
To have me but I'm not to blame....
You didn't give me your last name!

So hang on, sweetheart, I'll arrive
If my old Corvair can survive
And we will have some good times then.
I just can't tell you where - or when

Very well said....in fact I think you looked into my heart before you wrote the words  
Very touching.

Devina, this is beautiful.  I know these feelings, I could've written it myself.  This has me missing him even more.

I could really feel your desire and yearning to Touch...Thats what so hard about cyber-love! Like your poem!

Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
