I wrote this poem to bring a smile to Jill's face, over this long Memorial Day Weekend, without me.

Sometimes I stop to look beyond
This haven that I hold so fond
And wish there’d be a magic wand
To bring you near to me
 
I see the skyline at sunset
And think back to the day we met
Everything, then, was soaking wet
But, still destined to be
 
I see the buildings and the lights
From one of the most treasured sites
And still I find emptiness bites
The months and days are long
 
I know they will pass by in time
And, soon, we will enjoy each rhyme
Together, romance in its prime
With every soft love song
 
With words from Fogelberg and Joel
We’ll share the love felt in the soul
From distance, our lives will be whole
Jointly, our bond shall reign
 
Greater than that shared in The Rose
Stronger than in Nobody Knows
No songbird could ever compose
Words for a love so plain
 
I pause, this night, to look upon
A brilliant, well-manicured lawn
I think about the days now gone
And realize something true
 
The months may crawl at a snail’s pace
But, crawling time will not replace
The memories I'll have of your face
‘til I am there with you

Have been reading Jill's things and she put a message on my den saying about your long distance relationship and what it is like. Sounds like you are doing alright with each other. She surely thinks a lot of you to to profess her love for you to all of us. Keep in love and let your light shine out to her. God Bless you both always.

Nate,
I wish you were here so I could hug you. This is absolutely beautiful and yes, I'm smiling. These days DO seem long, but we'll be together soon. At least we have the gift of putting what we're thinking on paper; I can't speak for you, but it's helping me through the distance and time we must be apart.
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!!!
Hugs, Kisses, & Lots of Love,
Jill
