Dear John Poem by Jon M. Nelson

Dear John

Dear John,
I don't like that you're so far away,
Because I want to hold you every day.
I long to hold you in my loving arms,
So we can keep each other from harm.

I saw your folks today, they say hello,
And they love you I'm sure you know.
I wish that I could hear your voice,
But I know you didn't leave by choice.

Dear John,
Sorry that I haven't written in a while,
Oh how I miss your wonderful smile.
Things around here have been so hectic,
Juggling school and work is quite a trick.

I'm getting so lonely without you here,
And I wish you could dry away my tears.
I have to go now, my friend's here to study,
But think nothing of it, he is just a buddy.

Dear John,
I got your letter, I'm sorry about your friend.
It's always so tragic for a soldier's life to end.
I always pray that it won't happen to you,
Because I just don't know what I would do.

Everything you go through must be a fright,
And the thoughts keep me awake at night.
I sure hope they cut your deployment short,
But I have a close friend that's here for support.

Dear John,
I know you keep busy and have a lot going on,
But it just kills me with you being gone.
I know you send letters and emails when you can,
But it's just not the same as the touch of a man.

We used to have a love so passionate and true,
And you have no idea how much I miss you.
But there's someone here to help lend a hand,
So don't worry about me while you're in the sand.

Dear John,
I got your letter today and I'm kind of confused,
I don't understand why you would feel used.
I said he's nothing more than just a good friend,
There's no reason to think that this is the end.

I'm sure you know, I love you with all of my heart,
So I'm not sure why you think we're drifting apart.
School and work just always keep me so occupied,
Which reminds me I have to go, I can hear my ride.

Dear John,
I'm so sorry that I haven't written to you lately,
But things back here have just been so crazy.
I passed my final exams and will soon graduate,
And I hope things for you are going as great.

It seems we never talk as much any more,
But I know our freedom you're fighting for.
I've been spending a lot of time out with friends,
But I promise I'll find a way to make ammends.

Dear John,
I know that I haven't written in a long time,
And you're working so hard to earn that dime.
This distance between us is killing me so much,
And as a result it's been hard to keep in touch.

I wish you never went to that dreadful place,
Because I long so much for that warm embrace.
The warmth of love is what I miss most of all,
It is breaking my heart because you can't call.

Dear John,
This letter was very difficult for me to write,
I'm sure you know that something is not right.
I longed for your passion and your tender kiss,
And wanting to hold you in such heavenly bliss.

I didn't want this to happen, and yet it did,
The love between us, a farewell I must bid.
I found someone new, he's been a great friend,
So this must be the last letter that I will send.
