Stuck in God's Country

What do I do when I can’t have you?

Waiting and wondering wishing it wasn’t true.

I felt us click over all those long miles,

Before the evening was over I had ten thousand smiles.

The distance is painful, the map isn’t wrong.

Life’s turn of events played me a different song.

So here I am stuck in God’s country for sure,

Only to pine for what could be the cure.

You say I am perfect, all smart and sexy too,

But you need me to wait, your moments are few.

Children come first, that’s the way it should be,

But please don’t forget, I might just hold the key.

Life is real short, and friendships are fine,

But I could be something equally as divine.

If the kids come first now, they always will. You will forever take a back seat.

Beautifully said, writinginalaska, I love the cadence and the emotion within. Lovely poem.

I really enjoyed this one having suffered through the same thing in the same place. I grew up in Alaska (it is God's country) and had my love move to, of all places, Guam! Unfortunately, things didn't work out for the two of us. I wish better for you. Really great job on the poem by the way. Brought back bittersweet memories. Thanks!
