I hope not
Just trying to find the right words to say
Has never been a problem for me
Acting on those words, well that's a different story
Never have been really adept at playing games
Especially With the heart of another
Yet, while talking with you I sense a fear
Not in you, but within my own mind
That one day you will not believe my love for you
I've loved you for so very long
Yet we have never physically touched
Is there a time coming when patience runs out?
Everyone has their breaking point
When they say it's fruitless, it's time to move on
No, I have not reached that point, not even close
Are you tired of waiting, weary from so little time?
I hope not
Author's Notes:
No, there is no trouble in paradise. Just trying to gauge how lovers who are separated by great distances might feel.

It can be trying to say the least...a situation such as this...

BUT...true love will wait evermore. :o)

Wonderfully expressed my friend...despite the about comment, I do sense a feeling of worry and tension.  Excellent how you made empathy so tangible--

I would give you up in a heart beat! You just don't come around anymore, you don't call and you don't do any co-writes with me anymore! LOLOLOL!

Nice one Henry, Joe

Comment By: FreeCindy Bendel on June 5, 2008 03:49:25 PM Report are an amazing man. No one would give you up!  You are just too loving and kind and understanding. What a big heart you have. She is a blessed girl to have one such as you. I am sure she knows it too.

I honestly don't think that you EVER need  fear that will happen! How could anyone ever lose hope with a heart that reaches out like yours does? When love is true there's no room for fear or doubt.

Distance and longing, as Penny has said, can tear at the heart, but when the emotion is real, even the strongest of longings and the farthest of distances cannot destroy what has been built.

I can understand the thoughts you express here, but I truly do not think that you ever need to have a single fear. Even a little time with the one you love is better than no time at all. Just keep showing your heart and love to her :o) and she will be hooked for life :o) Take it from me!

Hugs...and glad that there's NOT trouble in paradise!
