Long Distance Love

Long Distance Love

Can you love only,

those you can see?

Canโ€™t you keep them,

in your memory?

If your love is true,

as you say,

does it matter,

if they leave or stay?


Leaving or staying,

was their choice.

Loving them,

was yours.

You be true to,

your memories.

Love will find you.


They live in your heart,

occupy your mind,

are forever with you.

Why do you need,

to hold their hand?

when they have left,

their soul with you.

  1. Wow !! thats simply beautiful … Love it…. especially the lines….Why do you need,

    to hold their hand? when they have leftt, their soul with you.

    Brilliant.. soul touching.. Keep on writing….:)

  2. Awww, Sulekha! I love this. It was so sweet. My heart was pounding when I read it. Love isn't always returned, but sometimes that's not the point is it? The ability to be open enough to love is a great treasure. Thanks for helping to start my Monday off right. Nothing like a beautiful poetic piece to start the week! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Tameka, Like I have said before, even your comments are pure poetry ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the beautiful compliment, thank you, Mamita.

  3. My dear Sulekha,
    Love is eternal and knows no color, no creed, no distance, no time. A heart that is open to love will be blessed in so many ways, even if, like Tameka indicated, that same love is not returned. To give love is to give of yourself. This is the best gift anyone can receive. Your sentiments are simply beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Andy, Thank you so much for your compliment. Best of luck for the blog hop, I am all out of words after the two challenges ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. This is beautiful Outlier. You said it all in this lovely poem. A relationship and love need not go hand in hand. Beautiful

  5. Touched Sulekha, such beautiful lines. Love does not see distance,age, caste and creed…..it just happens. Loved the lines 'Be true to memories, Love will find you.'

  6. I think I do very well in long distance relationships. I often wonder why, but I guess, I could compare it with my relationship with God. It takes a lot of fidelity (gazing upon Him) and communication (prayer) but it works out well. I could feel deep love.

    I'm including this among your many songs Sulekha ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the theme ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Melissa, I can't thank you enough for being so generous with your praise and talent. I am honored you chose my poems to write music for. Thank you dear friend <3

  7. The persons I love most in my life apart from my children are my online friends whom I have never seen, never touched, never heard their voice. I wasn't physically in touch with them, but they did touch my heart. Love is big and beautiful, regardless of distance!
    beautiful poem!

    1. Welcome to my site and thank you for your lovely comment. Love is a feeling, it doesn't need proof.

Share your thoughts before leaving :)
