An Open Letter To The Far-Away Valentine.

Dearest Love,

I miss you. I miss you so much! I don’t mean to sound whiny or crazy, but I do. And although I think that this day is much too hyped, I can’t help but miss you when I see all the cutesy things everyone else is doing today. Things would have turned out very differently if you were around.

I totally understand that the distance between us is just a silly number and that it is just a temporary thing. I don’t even want you to drop everything and materialize beside me- but part of me wishes you could. It is probably very selfish of me to wish for something like that, and I feel silly for doing so. But there is this teeny-tiny part of me that wants to able to celebrate ‘The Day Of Love‘ with you.

But do you know something else? You are worth it. Worth all the wait, the lack of proper communication- which lasts for several days sometimes, not being able to see you- worth all of it. I know that you will make it up to me for all of it. I also know that you can’t do anything about the distance and you would have done so if you could. So it’s completely alright.

“Because no matter how far apart we are, we are together and that is what matters.”

So what if we couldn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day together? It doesn’t define our relationship, does it? And it isn’t the end of time, either! There’ll be many more Valentine’s Days to be celebrated with you (I’m hoping!), and everything will be alright. Besides, we don’t need a Valentine’s Day to tell each other how much we mean to each other.

I tried so hard to pass it off as just another day in the calendar. But I could not. The truth is that I miss you and I am waiting for the day I’ll get to see you again and tell you how much I love you, in person! Until then, I guess I’ll just have to be patient- which I will be.

“Distance simply means separation in place but never in connections. Heart remains inseparable.”


I remember how worried you were thinking about how I was going to handle your absence. So, my love, here’s the answer- I can handle the distance and your absence pretty well. In fact, I draw comfort in the fact that you were worried about me at all. It isn’t an easy thing to do, but I’m doing just fine.

Yes, there are days when it’s a little too much for me to take in, but otherwise, I’m getting through the days just as normally as I would have- one day at a time. I’m not sulking or crying because it’s the last thing you’d want for me. I’m hoping you don’t feel terrible about not being here on this day. There will be other days to make up for all the lost time, and I’m going to be right here, waiting for you.

So, happy Valentine’s Day, boyfriend dearest. I love you so much, and you know that. I miss you and I’m hoping you get back soon. There are walks and dates to go on, lots of silly things to be done, conversations about everything under the sun to be had. Can’t wait.

All my love,

Your Girlfriend. Xoxo
