    her voice so close,
    whispering in your ear,
    her words so soft,
    they please you to sleep,

    she is so far away,
    miles bringing you close,
    the distance is nothing,
    together your in your dreams,

    hearing her breath,
    feeling her heart,
    is what comforts you most,
    never wanting to wake,

    sure enough,
    that morning comes,
    when you wake,
    she isn't there...

      The first thing that strikes me is the overuse of commas. I know that's an awful thing to say about a poem, which is why it needs to be remedied very quickly - every line ends in a comma, which means it's all one big, breathless sentence through to the end. This disrupts rather than adds to the flow.

    Overall, though, it does offer a certain comforting warmth which is duly snatched from under the reader's feet at the end line. I'm not sure about the title, because I think it gives away the end (like a novel, hee hee) too much. I also love the line "that morning comes" because it suggests that you've always known it was coming some time.

    Why is addressed in the second person, by the way? No problem or anything, but did you try it in the first and third persons as well? It might sound better. Just an idea.

    And perhaps work a little on the general idea of it: is it a tad clichéd?

    I don't mean to be overly critical. It is a nice poem, and if I didn't think you were capable of revising it to make it better, I wouldn't suggest it. Good luck :)
