Even Though You Are Miles Away

Waiting to meet a lover again.
When you wake up with the sunrise,
Do I linger in your dreams?
For when I hear the morning bird call,
I always see you here with me,
Even though you are miles away,
I can still taste your scented smell,
It sets the mood for my day ahead,
And I face it with a smile.

When you look into the mirror,
Who's reflection do you see?
For when I shave after rising,
You're in the background, watching me,
Even though you are miles away,
I can still see your sparkling eyes,
The deepest pools of purest blue,
Steeped in a loving smile.

When you're going through your day,
Do I turn up unawares?
For when my toil is getting me down,
I turn around and you are there,
Even though you are miles away,
I feel your presence close to me,
To sooth away my troubles
And chase away the misery.

When you go to sleep at night,
Do I lay there by your side?
For when I lay upon my bed,
I feel your body next to mine,
Even though you are miles away,
I can still feel your warm kiss,
Soft and silky, on my skin,
To remind me of the love I miss.

And when you look towards the future,
Can you wait to feel my arms?
For though I long to hold you tightly,
I guess I'll take each day as it comes.
Even though you are miles away,
It seems those miles are drawing in,
And each day brings us a little closer,
To when I hold you in my arms again.
