Love Poem: Waiting

Is there love without sacrifice? Can I endure past the misery of longing?
I wait in expectation for your return and the pleasure of nights in your arms.
You demonstrate the ultimate sacrifice through
your life
and the risks required to keep us safe.
And so I too
must live without you near
and wait with patience and anticipation
for the day
when you are here
and I no longer need fear
that you will be taken from me.

And love will erase any sense of loss
or traces of abandonment.
For we will be as one.
United in love and life.
Together forever.
Into eternity.
