Long Distance Love

I've heard it said
no one can love from a distance
yet here I am and there you are
my insides sting waiting to hear
you speak my name

then in an instant
my heart sings and leaps 
as the sound of your voice
tenderly whispers from afar

I love you

the sweet melody from your lips
fills the sky to let me know
love endures 

do you know I love YOU?

awakened in the quiet
and still of  night

faint words of hope,
 delicate as snowflakes
 drifting gentle to earth ,
whisper to my ear

tell my heart to listen

alive from sleep
I touch the new of morn
help me hear you  Lord
I pray  I would hear
