"I Don't Want to Sleep Yet"

My Dear, every time I tell you to go to bed early
My heart breaks too; so sad seeing you
fade slowly like a candle dying its light.

Oh, My Love, how I wish to see you more,
chat with you longer, stare at you endlessly.
Seeing you forlorn bleeds my heart no end.

Today is neither ours to have nor to enjoy
But waiting patiently is the right course for sure.
No way to be idle, we'll love each other forevermore.

Is this Internet love?
I get the feeling that it is.
The language is good, and the pacing done well.
If the theme is as I've said, it reads perfectly.
The beginning and the end are fine, with the ending being
a resolution to do it right.

If it is your intent to make this an ambiguous poem, it works.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

Thanks for your encouraging comments--Willie

I agree with Geezer's comments. it does feel like internet love...however love happens is all good! there is also a trace of sorrow here...
