    So Many Friends

    I've made quite a few friends through EP. Many of them are but a mouseclick away. I would love to meet them, but sadly distance separates us - long distances. I guess it's the curse of today close but not close. It would be nice to meet for coffee and a nice chat......

    Temporary

    The distance between us is painful, it hurts so much that I cannot touch you and hold you in my arms at this very second. There is the constant ache in my heart that you are not with me..... BUT, I would not trade what we have for anything in the world. I know this distance...

    Although you a good distance away.

    You are with me everyday, every moment shared from morning to night. When you sleep I hang on every beep of my phone, hoping you woke! Distance always sounds so bad, then I think your always less than a day away!

    Home Is Whenever I'm With You...

    I miss him so much. And I'm pretty sure he misses me too. It's kind of funny how quickly someone can take your heart, and how incredibly reluctant they are to give it back. When I came home from seeing you I cried. And I cried. And I cried. Because I realized that I couldn't call...

    I Wish We Were Together

    Its good how the internet gives us access to new people from around the world but when we start to have feelings for other people and you have no way of physically being with them it starts to suck. Especially if you're someone like me and you find it easier to talk to people...

    Dear Mom,

    I miss you so much, even though you're still a phone call away. I sometimes cry when nobody is around, because those simple little things we did are now too difficult to arrange.  In fact now, the tears flow down my cheeks as I reminisce all of the fun times we shared together...

    Where Oh Where Are You Tonight?

    Not a moment of the day my thoughts aren't with you. This distance between us has disrupted my life. I know that is why you said goodbye. I just can't let you go. I won't. If I wasn't so far away I would be by your side.

    Just Wish That You Were Near

    I hate that you can't just jump in your car and come over to my house for coffee or dinner. I hate that when I'm sad, I can't go running to you for a hug! I hate it when you're sick and I'm not near to help you get better. I hate taking all my walks on the beach without you...

    3 hours ago..... You were here with me,

    this week I was full of happiness, joy, laughter, full of life. I can't stand the idea of being so far away from each other, I can't stand one more goodbye knowing I won't see you in such a long time... I need you, I need you with me, today, tomorrow and every day. I miss you...
