Lost Love Poem

Someone I loved dearly was avoiding me...He sounded more interested in other girls...so I felt really hurt....so hurt that I cried the whole day....and then I wrote this poem...it is straight from my heart...

I Want You Back

© Sania Harris
Sitting by the river
Dreaming through my reflection
I wonder what has happened
What has caused this distance

We used to be together
Cuddling close to each other
What came between our beautiful love?
I don't know, though I wish to

I can see you now, not alone
You're holding a hand that's not mine
Where am I? Why not next to you?
Why am I away? I don't understand

You're smiling to the fullest
I am not the one making you happy
You are glancing at someone else
Why is it not me?

Seeing you after such a long time…
My heart sighs again
Something inside me growls loud
'Cause now your hand runs through her hair

I stand some distance well away
But the surroundings disappear
When I look at you, I feel lost inside
I wish you back, my angel

There you are, holding her hand
And I am lost, trying to understand…
I want you back, I really do
Just to hold your hand
And walk with you

  • I love this site!! I have had a horrible time in life. Nothing works out for me. I don't know why I do exactly everything I am supposed to do everyday. I have been with my boyfriend for two years I absolutely adore him and always have. No matter what I do or say I can't ever feel safe in this relationship. He acts like if also adores me until he gets around certain people that are unhappy with their own lives and don't want him to be happy they milk his head with horrible lies, next thing you know he doesn't want me anymore. That is a kind of pain I wouldn't wish no anyone. It hurts so bad there isn't a word to describe it. And it doesn't matter who says what I would never ever do tilt to the one I love. I will always love him the same no matter what. Nothing could ever influence me any different. This site is the only way I'm getting by . If I didn't write I wouldn't make it day after day. Thank you. I have hope someone will love me the right way some day.

  • I met Nick in med school several years ago, I knew then he was the one for me, his beautiful smile, dark hair, of course how he made me laugh...
    We fell in love, it was perfect....he kissed me under the stars on a pier out in the ocean, we shared our dreams of having 5 kids, I never felt happier with anyone else since then
    We parted, went back to our significant others, he's happily married and has a son now, my marriage ended before it even started......and now I look back always thinking of Nick, wishing him well and remembering such great times between us, a great love lost in time
    Our timing was off and there's no going back even though I always think of him.
