Long Distance Love Poems


Don’t let the miles between us
Keep our love apart
Just listen close and you will hear
The beating of my heart

No distance, will ever keep
My heart from loving you
There are no more tears for it to weep
For a love that runs so true

I’ll be there with you one day soon
To love you everyday
And then my heart will sing a tune
And you will hear it say

I’ve finally found my one true love
As true as one can be
And now you are all I’m thinking of
Forever stay with me

A beautiful choice in long distance love poems, one that expresses love and longing. It talks about the promise of a future together and the relentless wait to be together.

2. I Imagine You

I can feel your smile
rest upon my face
And I can feel the warmth
and gentleness of your embrace
I can hear your laughter
it’s music to my ears
And your voice still whispers to me
and wipes away my tears
I imagine you
right here with me
the one and only place
you are meant to be
This is your home
here in my heart
but fate has been unkind
and time has kept us apart
So, I imagine you
right here with me
I remember that sparkle
that dances in your eyes
when something makes you happy
just to be alive
I remember your spirit
and how it set me free
How the tender side of you
put me at ease
I imagine you
right here with me
the one and only place
you are meant to be
This is your home
here in my heart
but fate has been unkind
and time has kept us apart
So, I imagine you
right here with me

And imagine is what one can do in such a situation! Lovers imagine of reuniting, of days that they’ve had together and imagine the feeling of togetherness… imagine! That is the very heart of long distance love poems.

3. Memories In My Mind

Though miles come between us
And distance keeps us apart
Nothing can ever change
The love inside my heart
I may not be there with you
Every minute of the day
But you’re always here with me
In at least a thousand ways
Whether it be a thought
Or a moment that we’ve shared
It only takes a second
To get from here to there
Though I cannot really feel
You here at my side
It’s always nice to know
I’ve got these memories in my mind
I Miss You

It is the memories in the mind that make it easier to pass time and go on with life until you are together with the love of your life. Memories and the long distance love poems and shayarsis become ones only true solace!

4. A Time For Us

Just like the sun goes down at night
Just like the moon and stars come out
To light up the sky

Just like every spring has gloomy days
Full of thunderous rain
Before new flowers bloom

Just like the river travels long rough
Miles through cities and towns just to
Flow into the sea for eternity
There will be a time for us

Yes, there will be a time for lovers to be together and unless that time comes, one can only wait and hope for the time to pass soon. Here’s to that wait, and to all the long distance love poems every LDR lover will read and sigh to!

5. Our One Star

Look at the stars tonight
As we see the same light
And in that moment
It will be alright
If you miss a falling star
I’ll catch it for you
Keep it in my heart
And we can share it too
Keep holding on
As life goes along
Pain is short-lived
As you are so strong
I will hold your hand
And look in your eyes
But it is only then
That our star will shine
By ~ Colby Barker

The stars and moon connect lovers however miles apart they may be. It might sound whimsical but just knowing there’s still something you can share is a beautiful feeling. And yes, long distance love poems on the moon can merge with imagination, and then your lover is more beautiful than the moon.

6. Waiting To See You

All alone in this empty room
Waiting to see you very soon
Wasting my time all by my own
Sadness I feel all day long

Wishing to be with you
Everyday even at night too
I really want to see you
But what can I do?

It breaks my heart, it makes me weak
Without your presence makes me sick
I don’t know where you are or what do you do
I’m really worried for where are you

Hoping to see you and to be with you
Is what I desire to become true
Maybe tomorrow, definitely tomorrow
‘coz missing you is my deepest sorrow

Waiting is all you can do, so why not write about it? it is this waiting period that brings in bitter sweet emotions that make it wonderful yet stressful at the same time, write your heart out, write a few long distance love poems, let it out.

7. Inhale

I woke,
And I buried my nose in your shirt:
It still smells like you
In your absence.

It is such a comfort,
To me, your lover,
On the small island.

We are far in miles,
But I have your shirt
To inhale.

Woah! Such a powerful little poem! All senses crave for the lover’s touch and feel and this mini winner of long distance love poems beautifully highlights the desire of senses.

8. Thinking About You

By Gary R. Hess

When I ate today at noon
All I could think about was you
Wishing you were here to do what you do
Wishing I could feed you with my spoon
Hoping someday I’ll see your smile again

I don’t know if I can take all this pain
Knowing that I am here and you are there
Thinking about the times we had and will not have

You are the best there ever was and will be
There is nothing to explain you, but lovely
Even when I was sad you made me happy

I just don’t know what to do
I just hope one day, I get to see you

Can you ever really stop thinking about your love? Every moment of each day makes you think of the distance and your love. And then of course, you read a few long distance love poems, listen to a few sad songs, and some day it’ll all be worth it.

When it hurts so bad,
why does it feel so good?
I wish this all made sense,
I wish I understood.
Not having you here with me is tearing me up inside,
but I can’t stop thinking about you no matter how hard I try.

You know how I feel about you,
and I know I want to spend the rest of my life with you,
but it’s so hard to do when I can’t even be next to you.
Why does it have to be so complicated?

Loving you feels so right,
but at the same time,
knowing I can’t have you keeps me awake at night.
I just want this to be simple,
I just want you here with me,
to look into your eyes,
be held in your arms…then I’d truly be happy.

Right now this distance between us is out of our control,
but I’m still hoping one day soon,
I’ll get what I’m wishing for.

And that’s exactly how the heart and mind sway through endless emotions all day long! From sweet memories to bitter reality, from pain to solace… it’s a mix of emotions that make days hard to get through. KInd of like I hate you but I love you quotes, but with so much more love.


Long distance
1500 miles
44 days to walk
Who cares?

If you love me
As I love you
We’re not apart
Despite the miles

We are together
Together at heart
Distance matters to minds
But hearts don’t care

We fell in love
Long distance
We’ll stay in love
Long distance

Our hearts are together
Though we’re far apart
Though we fell in love
Long distance

That’s a positive note! Yes, there is distance but true love transcends beyond physical distance and remains connected no matter what and where the lovers may be. We personally love long distance love poems with this theme.

11. Long Distance Love Affair

I could fall in love with anyone
I fell into you
Down into something unknown
I was far gone
Playing out scenarios in my head
A love affair
Long distance
Dates through blurry cameras
Can never be clear
I can wish you good morning
And you bid me good night
A love affair
With its destination unknown

The destination of love does seem far and hazy when lovers are separated by distance. Your heart knows what it wants but it’s the distance that makes the mind anxious of how things will turn out to be.

In the moments that I feel empty

Your love gives me new skin

Sometimes distance draws us together

But being with you in somber moments

Helping us to strive towards the future

Now that’s what I call the power of words! This is why I say long distance love poems have a unique and powerful way to convey a deep meaning with minimum number of words but maximum impact!


Long distance love, how are you?
Are you thinking of me too?
I thought about you again today,
Just hoping that you are okay,
Can’t you please pick up the phone?
As I sit here all alone.

Long distance love, do you recall?
The times it seemed we had it all,
The times we thought would never end,
But now I need more than a friend,
Everything could be so right,
If you would just come home tonight.

Long distance love, can’t you see?
How much you really mean to me,
Sometimes it seems to be my fate,
To have to sit at home and wait,
But if this is what I have to do,
I will always be here for you.

The poet seems to be in such a turmoil! But the truth is most poets of long distance love poems are. It’s easy to know how you feel but it’s the thought of not knowing how the other person feels that makes one anxious and feel uprooted.


Talking long distance to you online
I feel I know you even though we’ve never met
I know your feelings, your quirks
Your wants, your needs
I love you for who I’ve come to see plastered on my computer screen.

A thin pane of glass
Sits between you and me
Yet I somehow know
That it is meant to be.

If it’s meant to be… it will be! True love can never be overshadowed by something as temporary and flimsy as physical distance.

We are trapped,
only able to see love,
imagine love.
Our senses constricted.
I cannot see you,
only your image,
distorted by the miles between us.
I cannot hear you,
only the deceiving voice pretending to be yours.
and worst of all,
I cannot touch you,
only the screens that separate us,
thin layers to cover up the distance between us.

When love resides in your heart, nothing can take it away! Distance cannot separate two hearts connected by true love. When you’re so madly in love, truly no distance is too far.

Wow! Poetry is so magical! If you are far away from the one you love, hold in there, and believe in your heart that one day, soon, you will be reunited. Any more long distance love poems or stories to share with us?
