Long Way Away Poems

You have gone so very far away
I didn't realise how bad I'd feel;
The internet does save the day
And webcams are the real deal.

I've missed your hugs
Your smell and your kiss;
Your sense of humor though
Is what I really miss!

No matter what life throws at us
You really don't seem to worry;
You always make me feel so much better
I'm filling up and my eyes have gone all blurry.


How many more sleeps little Ava says
Before she sees her daddy;
He's been gone forever it seems
It's the first visit for the little fatty.

He's being brave and doing his job
We all know that very well;
But having him home safe and sound
Will be really swell!


Everything is only a plane ride away
However did they cope;
When even the simplest journey
Relied so much on hope.

Prior to this century
It took hours and hours;
What can now be done
Miraculously we have the powers.

Electronically speed is the word
While snail mail was all there was;
We must be grateful for what we've got
So that I can chat and see you 'cos!

In history we've learned about the wars
But behind the scenes were the families;
Whose men went off and not heard
For days and months and years.


Long Way Away Poems

This world is such a different place
To how it used to be;
It must have been so quiet then
That must have felt so free.

You are here though in the next room
But your heart and mind are not;
You're in a different place to me
In a time that has been forgot.

I can't find you though I've tried
Again and again and again;
You're there with your comrades
On the front line and in pain.


However many miles
We'll always be friends you and me;
No matter what time passes
However many waves in the sea.

We connected like no other
I think of you all the time;
The planet cannot hold us
There's nothing we can't climb.

Faraway but deep inside
Sounds very very twee;
But that is exactly where you are
In my heart and inside me!

It's about time for a holiday
I think I'll come and see;
Just how you've settled in
Your new life without me.

I belive it is exciting
Just getting there a trek;
But I'm up for that and will see you soon
(Irish) I don't give a feck!
