How It Used To Be

I remember how it used to be
when nothing else matter but you and me
music, country roads, and future dreams.

I miss you, I wish you could see
although you are here, I miss you and me.

I remember when you said how happy I made you
and you really meant it...now, it's just a phrase
you say without thinking.

I miss those days when you'd call just to say "hi"
or "I love you"...the days it was so hard
just to say good-bye for a while.

I remember how wonderful it felt the first time
you held me in your arms-and how after all those
years you still made my heart melt.

I miss the old you- and the old me
The old us that could just sit and talk for hours
and never run out of things to say.

I remember when time simply stood still-
when in each other's arms is the only place
we wanted to be...forever.

I miss us as I remember how it used to be...
when nothing else matter but you and me.

Melissa, I wrote this poem when I felt and saw so many things changing in my marriage. There was no doubt that my husband and I loved each other, but life somehow stole all the little things that made us fall in love...we also divorced about a year ago. After a year has passed, all the hurt and anger is slowly subsiding...and when I read this poem so many memories break my heart; we had both forgotten all these little things that that seemed so trivial were actually the most important moments of our lives together. It hurts to know you will love each other forever, but you can never go back!

This poem really fit me. My husband and I divorced about a year ago. I admit it was mostly my actions that caused us to split, confused about feelings I couldn't explain for an ex. I was honest with him and said I didn't know if they were feelings just because I had two children in that relationship or if I wasn't over him. Now time has passed and I realize where my heart belongs. And the one I truly am in love with, my ex-husband, don't believe me and won't give what we shared another chance. He is my prince charming and he will never know my true feelings for him. I love him so much, it's hard doing anything in life I enjoy cause it's all the memories of what we did together and not being able to make more. I will forever love him, Joel, I love you so much.

This is how I felt with my ex before I finally gave up. He used to say I made him happy and he loved me. Every day he'd say how beautiful I was and how I brightened his day when I woke, then months later it was just nothing. Like I was the only one in love. Like I was the only one trying. Thank you for this poem. I loved it.

I love this poem, it really hit home with the issues that I am going through right now. Everything has changed in my relationship right after we just got things straightened out. Seems like 1 step forward 3 steps back.

I wrote this poem years back...realizing how much had changed between me and my husband. It's so sad that sharing your heart and soul with someone is what life is all about, yet...life is what ultimately tears you apart. Tonight, I sit here still missing all the things that used to be...and accepting the fact that it will never be again. Life and loss tore us apart...in two years time, my 17 year old son passed away and we divorced....so I will forever miss the way it "Used To Be"

I Love this! It is exactly how I feel about my now ex...he and I used to be able to talk for hours, and never run out of things to say. I used to literally fall asleep on the phone with him. Now it's all changed. He's moved on (to my ex best friend) and I'm stuck doing so as well. I wish I could fix it but I can't. I miss the old you- and the old me, The old us that could just sit and talk for hours, and never run out of things to say. I just miss us....

I am so glad that you all could relate to the poem! It just seems that sometimes life consumes all those little, special moments. It's as if you wake up one morning and realize what is missing...the simple things that made you fall in love!

Yes, that poem is exactly how I feel right now. [crying]. We always had time to talk every night and day, we texted each other every minute; now it's always I don't have time, this is not the right time, maybe we'll talk later (and don't never hear from this person) I gave this person everything I had to offer and I don't know if she even loves me back.

I love this. It's describing exactly how I am feeling about my boyfriend. When he used to say how happy I made him and mean it. I can completely understand the "Although you are still here ..." line because its so true. I am hoping it is just a rough patch but its been on going for months and I am so tired of it. Anyways, Absolutely amazing poem and definitely what I needed to read right now.

Wow.
Just wow.
This totally describes my best friend & I! I LOVE the part where it says "Although you are still here, I miss US" Because she is still here, but I miss how we were together! This is great & keep writing!

Me and my partner have recently been separated due to work and financial reasons. It has been so hard on our relationship and at one point thought we would separate for good. We have a son together and I think that he is the only reason that we were still together and still going through the motions. After reading this poem it has made me realize how much I actually love my partner even though we have had our ups and downs. It has made me remember when we were first together and how in love we were. I now know that I could never leave him and that we are just going through a bad patch that will get better. Without him I would be half the person. Thank you x
