Even though I don’t always show it,
I hope you know it
That I love you
I don’t know how
And I don’t why
I’ve come to be this way
Creating distance and space
Time gone by that I can’t erase
Maybe it was the push and pull of youth
The time it took for self-discovery and truth
One hundred miles feels like a moment to me
Yet it’s a month or two or three
Time passes the entire year through
But my love for you will always remain
Beautiful poem, Jenn! It’s true, time does pass far too quickly, people go in different directions, we think that we have time, suddenly we run out of time… Love remains true… “Say what you need to say”, right?
Yes indeed. It’s important. Lessons that I am still learning myself.
Thank you again Lynne for your kind words and support.
Lovely! A great reminder for everyone about the things that really matter.
Thank you. What things really matter in your life?
My children. My husband. My friends. Being lucky enough to be a full-time writer, and not having to go back into the workforce (I’m an ex-lawyer … hmm, speaks for itself!) How about you?
How wonderfully romantic. Never stop telling him that.
I actually wrote this on Mothers Day when I was thinking about my family. My Mother and brother and his family all live in Toronto (5 hours away from me) and I don’t seem to ever see them as often as I should or would like to.
Ah…. I can see that. Most of my family is 8 hours away, so I don’t see them often.
I love this!
This poem is fantastic!
Thank you so much!
