Stuck in God's Country

Updated on December 21, 2014

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.

    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!

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

    beautifully written, warm, gently intense from the heart and missing love. Keep it up girlfriend.

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