David and I were together for fourteen years and it came to a time he had to go away for a while and I thought I would never get through this time without him. I spent a lot of time writing and doing things to keep my mind occupied to help me get through this difficult time. I have never spent even one single day away from David since we first started dating. He was not only my boyfriend/ lover, he was also my best friend and one of my only real true friends. He was always there for me through anything. He was the one person I could confide in and talk about anything. We lived together, worked together, had all the same friends and we were always together. When he had to go out of state for so long, I thought I would never make it without him and it was really hard and took me a very long time to get used to being without him. I wrote this poem to get out some of my feelings about our situation. This is the poem:
Everytime I'd see you, my face would light up.
Not even the biggest smile would ever say enough.
All those nights I slept cuddled up in your arms.
Always had you to protect me from any harm.
I had you to cry to in my worst pain.
It was only you who kept me from going insane.
You could even turn bad times into fun and laughter.
It kills me that you I can no longer run after.
You are so close but so far away.
But you remain in my heart each and every day.
I know it's not permanent, we'll be together again
and I get so excited thinking of when.........
that day will come and I'll finally hold you, touch you, kiss you,
until that day comes, remember how much I love and miss you.
