a singular excellence of companionship

Be my long distance lover,
go and be not with me,
except in spirit.
It'll be a wonderful time,

Devotion to each other
in heart and in word,
sometimes in deed,
such as to commit to
mutual loneliness.

Now-and-then reunions
on lucky weekends
will be distance-grown,
full of hearts fonder;
but always too short

The rest of the time
when we're together-apart
will be phone calls,
and aching hearts.
