Helplessly hoping

My dearest love,

I have been struggling with the distance between us, but my love for you sustains me.

You are everything that is pure and beautiful to me in this world and I miss you so much.

I am sometimes able to fool myself to believe that you care for me as much as I care for you, but the reality of circumstance is a harsh master.

My heart tells me that we will be together, but my mind always reminds me that it would be easier to hold back the tides.

I am a fool that is reaching for a bright light, but I am your fool and you are my bright light.

With all my heart, I love you.
