Painfully Alone

I long to feel your tender touch, or just to hear your sweet voice But you're not here, and I don't know when you'll be back Though I hold fast to the promise of your return They say absence makes the heart grow fonder But it only causes me loneliness and pain My heart is already full to bursting with love for you Neither absence nor anything else could make me love you more I hope, sincerely, it doesn't make me love you less I know you have obligations, and that they must be met But do these separations hurt you as much as they do Does it tear your heart apart every time we say goodbye Tell me that it does, tell me that your heart yearns for mine Make me believe it, and I will wait for you forever
