Know That…

---

My heart aches at the distance
Stretched between us every day,
And you should know, I wish with all my heart
That it didn't have to be this way.
I hate that I have to leave you;
I wish so badly that I could stay
To hold you in my arms once more,
Just for one more, single day…
To whisper how much I love you in your ear
While my fingers, in your hair, play…
To tell you how thoroughly I'll miss you
While I struggle to hold my tears at bay…
I just wish I could be with you now,
Instead of always being so far away…
But for now, that is impossible,
So I'll have to rely on the old cliché:
Until the day I can be in your arms again,
Know that I love you – forever and a day.
