Long Distance I Love You

You said you needed some time
To think about you and me
You went out west to find yourself
You just wanted to be free

I'm okay and doing fine
Everything is going well
But the other one you left behind
Is going through living hell

Little Jayden misses you
Wonders what he did wrong
Keeps asking why you're not here
To sing him his good night song

His bedroom is his hangout
Trucks and trains are his glue
Waiting for the phone to ring
With long distance I love you

(Chorus)
Long distance I love you's
Can't fill that empty space
That you left deep in his heart
Where the phone now takes your place
He's trying hard to hide the pain
He must be going through
He's holding on and waiting for
Long distance I love you

I can see it in his eyes
When you hang up the phone
The happiness soon turns to tears
It just reminds him you're not home

I know that he is longing for
The things you used to do
But the only thing he has right now
Is long distance I love you

(Repeat chorus)

Thanks all for your comments.  After I write something, I usually let it sit for a few days and go back and revisit it.  I am thinking maybe the third verse may be a little weak and considering this for an alternative third verse:

Little Jayden misses you
His life is not the same
Every night when he says his prayers
He always mentions your name

Any opinions?

Ohhhh Roy! This is so very well written- it reads beautifully, smoothly and what an amazing story :)
PS the third verse is great in the original writing! (wrong-song) has a powerfull imagery and comes across as very realistic
