I Know It

It was love at first sight,
When I saw you I knew.
Together we would be,
Just me and you.

You're the only one,
I love you so much.
I'm all alone now,
And I long for your touch.

It seems so long,
Since you have left.
You said you would be back,
I just hope for the best.

It has been three days,
I miss you so...
I wish that I,
Was allowed to go.

You said you would call,
When you arrived.
But when you didn't,
It made me cry.

I countdown the days,
Until your back in my world.
I still can't believe,
That you chose me to be your girl.

My love is true,
I know yours is too.
And I can't wait,
To be back with you.

My boyfriend went to jail a week before valentines day and has been there since. He pushed me away emotionally before he went away so I wouldn't be hurt or disappointed in him. I know he loves me because I'm close with his family. I don't know what to do. I'm trying to stay so strong for myself and I let him know constantly that I'm here for him no matter what. I came across this poem and loved it. Its hard finding someone who can relate to my situation but you guys all kind of do haha.

My fiancé went to jail in March of 2012 and he is still in prison waiting for his released day which is January 2014 and it has been really hard because when he got locked up I found out I was pregnant and now our baby is 9 months but he hasn't met his son only in pictures :( I just can't wait until he gets out. For those woman who have husbands or boyfriends that are facing 5 years to life damn you're strong. We all are strong but I just don't know if I would survive that long without him.

I just read your poem and it brought tears to my eyes. Today is December 20, 2012 and my husband went to jail for the 1st time since we've been together. I found out by a phone call and suddenly burst into tears. I never thought this would happen to me. I'm lost without him and I don't know what I'm going to do without him. All I can do is pray he comes home soon and keep my head up and stay strong. To all you ladies out there with a man in jail, "you're not alone".

My Boyfriend went to prison in March this year he had 22 months. But he has been given his prison release date for February next year. I'm gutted because a month after he went to prison I found out I was pregnant with his child, I've told him and we write to each other and he phones me and I've been to see him a few times. I Love and miss him so much and nothing feels the same without him, I feel like I want to do myself in some times. But I'm just counting down the days, nights and weeks till he's home in my arms again.

Hi I know the feelings my fiancé just got locked up on October 8th 2012. I miss him so much and love him so much I never been through this stuff and it's hard for me to walk away when I have to leave the jail from seeing him. He doesn't have really anybody out there. His family all gave up on him and he only has my family that cares a lot about him and that loves and misses him so much. It's hard going to bed at nights and knowing that the love of your life isn't laying next to you and waking up and not having them beside you. I cry myself to sleep every night cause I miss him so much. I've only been with him for a year but on Christmas of this year he is going to miss our 2 year engagement. He has two niece and a son that is so attached to him and it hurts him to see them not having their uncle or their dad around they cry everynight. He is my superman and I'm his solider girl. I'm going to ride it out with him every step of the way ride or die. I love you so much baby you will be home soon love you always and forever until death do us part.

A week ago my boyfriend was sent to jail on a pretty serious accusation. Due to his one prior charge and because we live in a commonwealth state the DA is trying to give him almost 20 yrs minimum mandatory time. I am 4 weeks away from my due date as we are expecting the arrival of our son at any point now. This will be my first born and the thought of having to go through this alone is unbearable. Even more to hear the pain in his voice and know there is nothing I can do. Poems like this let me know I'm not alone and keep me strong. Please keep us in your prayers.

My soon to be hubby has been in jail for almost 13 months. It definitely is tough not having him around but he is here for me mentally. We write thru letters and talk on the phone every 3 days. He's not only my love but he's my best friend. He's looking at 10 years of his life behind bars and it kills me. But I put on a smile because I have to be strong for him. He's stronger than I am being away. I love him so much and I just want him home. All you can do is be strong for our men. I have a lot of respect for all you women taking care of your husbands/boyfriends while being away. You are not alone believe it or not, a lot of us are all in the same boat. Babe I love you my everything, my world, stay strong baby.

MY bf has been in jail about a month now. And he has about nine more months to go. He gets out in April of 2013. We just had a baby daughter together on May 30th 2012. He got to be there with me for the birth of our daughter and got to spend the first 24 hours of her life with her and they took him from the hospital on a warrant he had from something he did before I met him. He is the best guy I know and it's been so hard without him doing everything myself. And it kills him everyday he can't be here with us and I can't wait to be in his arms again and see him holding our beautiful daughter again. I love him so much and we both had hard times in our growing up even though we are still young in our twenties we been throw a lot both together and before we met and we are able to tell each other everything no matter if it hurts or not we get through it together. If it wasn't for him and my daughter I probably wouldn't be here today and its been so hard without him I feel like a piece of me is gone.

My boyfriend has been in jail for 8 months. He's looking at a life sentence. It kills me to know I might not ever have him again. But this really is true love and I won't give up hope. He needs me a lot right now and I'm not leaving him alone. Girls who are there for there boyfriend's in jail truly do love them because it is the hardest situation. They can't even compare to long distance relationships.

My fiancé went to jail 4 days ago. He is looking at up to 5 years! We have a 18 months old little boy together.. I'm miserable and worried and hurt. I miss him so much, he is only 17 and has 4 felony changes. This poem has helped thank you and thanks girls for sharing your stories trust me I know it's hard. We have been together for 4 years and to see him all over the news and papers. Making it sound like a murder. It's painful.

This poem is beautiful. Reading these comments is even beautiful. My boyfriend has been in jail for 7 months now with still 2 and a half years to go and I understand exactly how everyone feels. It's nice to read everyone's stories and realize that there are people out there feeling just like you. You're all beautiful ladies and I admire all your strength to stand by your man. It's extremely hard but one day all our men will be home.

I been with my man for a year and a half. People think he's a loser, I see the good in him. No one knows all the crap he's been through, and he does have a terrible drinking problem which has way improved since we have been together. But that's why he's locked up now. He stole from a store while drunk (he relapsed after we argued about something dumb) and he got 40 days. It may not be long and now there's 27 days left...but every day feels like an eternity and I dread the night:(. People don't understand why I am with him, since he's younger than me and full of troubles, but they don't see the good in him which I know is there and see a lot of. Before him I was just surviving and he brought happiness and fun to my life. True we have problems but I believe by the grace of God we will get through this. I will always love him and won't ever walk away from him. In fact, I am marrying his ass when he gets out! Good luck to all you ladies out there! Be strong for you and your men, and kids if you have.

Beautiful Poem.
My Fiance, of 3 years, was arrested for Violation of DUI probation, last night. Me and Him are best friends. We never spend a single night apart. I have fallen into a deep state of depression. I have not slept since his arrest, nor have I eaten anything, at all. I can't, my stomach is in a huge knot, and my head pounds from crying...and I can't stop crying. I feel as if my heart has been ripped out of my chest. I also keep shaking. I have not been able to speak with him, and I have no phone for him to call me...and since his warrant is in a different county from here where he was arrested, that county has 5 days to decide if they are gonna come get him, and if they do I do not know how I will be able to see him. I am losing my mind. Nice to know I am not alone with something like this though. I think I will go cry some more now... =[

This poem is really touching. I too am in the same situation. My fiance was sentenced to six years federal, and is having to serve his time in Maryland. He went in when I was 8 months pregnant with our son. If all goes well he should be home with in 2 years. I miss him like crazy and it's really hard because I really can't visit often because of how far away he is. But poems like this do touch my heart. It explains what I've gone through to a T. Kudos to the author!

My man has a year and a half left till he gets out. It hard for me cuz I miss him so much. I love my man DAVID so much. I get his letters and start to cry cuz I now this is the only way we can communicate and visits never seem to go through something always happens and they tell us we can't see him or my ride tells me at the last minunte she can't take me. So all I can do is cry I can't wait for him to get out. You all be strong

Everyone always says that justice has been served when they take him away and tears start to fall as if it was raining that day. The inmates are not the only one that get locked up are hearts do to, cuz the one we love can't be there

Being locked up in the pen that's no joke when he's looking at 3 to 10 I just wish this whole thing would end so he can come home where he fits in

The hours pass slow and days feel like years when you know your man doings 3 years the tears and the fears of something happening to him in there I only wish that he didn't have to stay there

My boyfriend just recently got sentenced to 57 months in prison. When this happened I felt all alone. All the friends that I thought I had & that would be there for me turned out that only about 3 of them have turned out to be TRUE REAL FRIENDS!! Then I came across this poem and started to read the stories that others have posted on here and realized that I'm not the only one that is willing to stick it out and be there for the 1 person that makes my life complete and whole! I'm here for him through it all clear to the end of his time so we can go on with our lives together as one!

This is a beautiful poem, and says everything I feel, my baby is also in prison. I was fortunate to meet the love of my life in prison through my friend, who shared a cell with him, and we started talking as pen pals. We have become best friends, soul mates, and soon to be lovers and spend the rest of our lives together. He is a beautiful man with a big heart, he has bought so much into my life, and showed me what true love is. We have been talking now for 16 months, writing lots of letters, and he phones me at least 4 times a day. I love him more than anything..... We will be finally together for the first time, in 7 months, I know he will be worth waiting for, who would of thought, I would meet the love of my life in prison, so ladies hold onto what you got, and stand by your man all the way, they are human beings, not animals like they get treated!

I have been with my boyfriend for almost 3 years. He got locked up about a 1 1/2 ago. He is still serving his time they gave him 3 1/2 yrs. for getting in a fight. I tried everything to get him out, got a lawyer, but he still ended up having to serve time. We where going to move 2 days after he got locked up we had already bought the tickets so I left by myself cuz he was locked up but then he started writing me asking me to come back so I moved back for him. It has been the hardest thing I have ever gone through. But I told him I loved him with all my heart and from that day I have been there everytime he has needed me. I just want this nightmare to be over.

Omg this poem really touched me. My fiance has been away for 10 months. It has been the hardest thing ever to deal with. Sometimes I can't get out of bed. Things will remind me of him and I will breakdown. It's hard to be without your best friend. Everyday I pray he will be home soon. He is up for parole in February. I am praying he will come home. We are lucky to have gotten conjugal visits the time we spend together is priceless. Thank you for writing this poem. All you ladies who have to be away from your man stay strong. My prayers are with you.

I know what it is like to have someone you love locked away from you in jail. It hurts so much that you want to die to get relief. It is a hurt that stabs you in the heart and the blade turns and turns never giving any relief. You wonder, "How can God allow this to happen to me?" You spend your days crying, not eating, but just waiting, waiting for some news, something, anything to happen. Then, one day, you are forced to realize that you, too, are in a prison, but not with him.

Very few lucky ones are able to smart a way out of all of this pain. It's not God's doing, it's about your choices. To leave a bad world of pain could mean leaving him who wants to stay. Ask yourself, "Why did he go to jail? Did he think about me or the baby before he messed up?" Now, it is time for YOU to think, think, think. Rescue from this life of hell is a few smart thoughts away. Lift up your head, princess!

My boyfriend has been locked up for a while now. When he went in we weren't together but we ended up back together two years ago, I don't regret it at all. He means the world to me. This whole experience has taught me sooo much and is still teaching us how strong our love is. We have good and bad days like any relationship and he still has another year, it's hard to swallow but at the end of the day...our love will get us through! It's so hard because idk whether the tears are because of this incredible love or the fact that he can't hold me when I need him? It's almost over and I cant wait till the day when I wake up and he's laying next to me! Ladies it's hard but hold them down! time can fly!!!!!!!

My boyfriend got put on house arrest last month (July 2011) and has been doing extremely well. He asked his PO if he could go to intensive outpatient 5 days a week instead of 3, so his PO was blahhh and put him in jail 3 days ago so that my boyfriend would qualify for a program called the renewal center where offenders live for about 6 months. It doesn't seem fair that his PO would throw him in jail and put him in this program when he was doing well. But, it is what it is and my bf and I both have to deal with it. I miss him soo much and so does my son. really hoping we both stay strong thru this.

Reading this poem and all the other stories made me tear up. I'm 20 almost 21 and my boyfriend has been in since March 2011. He's done 4 months in county and now has 8 months left in prison. This is by far the hardest thing I've ever had to go through. I've never been w/someone who's locked up and being apart from him is driving me insane. I can't wait till the day I'm able to be back in his arms!! My friends and family don't understand why I'm still with him and these stories definitely help. Made me feel not so alone (: all of you gals and a few men are so strong and gives me some hope (: stay strong y'all!!

This is so sweet my boyfriend is locked up and we have a two year old daughter together who has been asking for her daddy every day. Sitting at the window wondering why her dads car is parked out the front but daddy's not home. She cries every night before bed for him. It breaks my heart, she talks to him on the phone it makes me and my boyfriend break out crying when its time for him to go she screams and throws the phone.

My boyfriend went to jail less than three days ago. It is the hardest thing to deal with and I know he is gonna be down for a while. His parents want nothing to do with him and all of his friends are either useless or locked up with him so I have to provide for him by myself at the age of 18. I love him with all of my heart and I am going to hold him down until he comes home. It is just so hard not knowing when I will hear from him or even be able to go see him. I cry daily. Then I look in my closet and see his clothes and stuff and just break down. It's terrible :( I miss him so much

I'm 19 and will be 20 in less then a month. My boyfriend got arrested and locked up. I've cried every night since then. When he calls and I can't get to the phone quick enough or if I just simply miss his call, it feels like my whole day has been ruined, and I cry. All of my days since he got those "silver bracelets" put on him, feels like a black cloud is over me. "It's the beating in my heart, it's the shaking in my soul" that's why I LOVE him. I can't wait till he gets to the phone so I can tell him about our little bundle of joy we will be having in January!!!!!

My man has been gone now for 3 days, its the hardest thing I have ever gone through. Looking at our kids when they say daddy, I miss daddy, its so hard what do you say. I know without God I couldn't do this alone. I wrapped his pillow with his T Shirt and I sleep with it every night. I miss him so much, never knew I could cry this much. Everything reminds me of him, he might be going to a drug prison called Safe P, I'm hoping they give him the least sentence possible, he got his probation revoked for a dirty UA, not really sure what's going to happen I'm just praying hard. Stay strong ladies, write your man, see your man as much as you can and never give up on love.

This just made my chest cave in and my heart crumble. My boyfriend of two years has been sentenced for a very long time; a jury with no evidence all heresy. No eye witnesses nothing... Absolutely nothing. I feel like my world has been ripped away from me. This is so hard and I commend any partner who has stayed faithful to their loved one. I truly do... I don't think I can last much longer... I'll try because he is the definition of amazing... but I'm unbelievably lonely..

This poem is exactly how I feel. My boyfriend of 2 years was locked up 5 months ago, and it hurts me every day. We found out 2 weeks ago he was sentenced to a mandatory 25 to 30 months and today they took him to his prison. I love him so much. But be strong for your men ladies.

love this poem, its so weird having to do a search on poems for people in prison because I want to put together something special, seeing as letters, photos and hour visits are all I have, but was really happy when I saw that there where heaps of people in the same situation as me. Some people are in prison for just simply making stupid choices.. yes they should be in prison because they did wrong but they are still people and some of them are good people too. I know hard to understand but it's true. My man is in prison and has been for 2 years, he has a year left. He got caught up in some stupid things and now he is paying the price. We all are. Counting down the days. As hard as it is now the future as a family, me, him our baby..his family and mine is a bright one. Stay strong to anyone with a partner away..

Hey ladies, I too is going through they same exact thing you guys are going through. The poem is great! Reading that and you guys' comments made me see my situation a little different/ better. My babe been locked up sine Dec. 23, 2010, 2 days before Christmas. We have a beautiful 18 month old baby girl. He goes to court tomorrow to find out exactly how long he has. I'm hopin and pray for 8 months in the county. Hopefully he comes home some time in August. I go see him twice a week for an hour. Believe me, that is not enough. I LOVE HIM/ MISS HIM SO MUCH. I'm not used to bein/sleepin without him. Its hurts.! He's all I have. He going to miss Valentines day, my 21st birthday, our 3 year anniversary, our daughters 2nd birthday and the 4th of July. Ugh more power to u ladies for being so strong, I cant do it. What am I to do? He's my everything :'(

Hello, My boyfriend got sentenced Dec. 28th for 18 months. I been searching on the internet for relative subjects. I'm glad I found this poem, it very sweet. I believe I searching around the internet to realize others are dealing with the same issues as me. Even though they are actually being held doing their time, I feel like we are doing time also. God bless you all.

I am in the same boat as all of you women. my man in jail too. he been in sent July 2009 and he will be getting out may 2011, when I read that poem it really lift up my spirit, we as women have to stay strong for your man that in jail, but what make me strong is praying to God. and know that he will be out soon. so keep pray women ,and don't give up. life is to short to give up on our man. Just think would God give up on you. God bless you all.

AHH I know I'm not the only one feeling this way but after reading all your guy's stories it kind of relieves me that even though its hard there is so many other people other there being strong and doing it! My boyfriend of 5 years and father to my 2 beautiful children went away thanksgiving night and is sitting 90 days in county and then be shipped out to prison for at least a year looking at 18 months max. I know it could be worse but it is so hard and I feel that everyday gets harder. but girls I guess look at it as everyday is one day closer to them being back home!

Wow.. This site and poem both have helped me a lot. My man of 6 months has been in jail for about 3 weeks he got a month.. And its soo hard not being able to see him, I pray every single night for him and everyday just gets harder and harder. I feel very lucky compared to all you girls who have to be away from your men for months and years.. I couldn't imagine. I have a week left and I can't stop thinking of the moment when I can hold him and tell him I love him

I love this poem it explains exactly how I feel my fiancé has been locked up going on 3 years. He got locked up the day after our daughters 1st birthday party. It really sucks because she was daddys girl and she still remembers who he is and she asks for him all the time he still has 2 years to go but I'm praying that he'll get out sooner then that. Me and my 2 daughter miss him very much and I feel lost without him. It's very hard being a single mom especially when the kids remind you so much of him but everybody be strong because I know I am. I am counting the days down.

Hey girl, This poem really touched and is true signification of what I'm feeling!! I miss my baby sooo much! I can even begin 2 explain this sensation! He is in jail serving 6 months...he has already served 2 and should be home in February!!...which compared to some of the stories is a very short time! But 1 day without someone you love can seem a life time!!...I hope you all stay strong ladies and hold it down for the one you love, the love is worth it!!

OMG! my man is locked up right now and I miss him so much and this poem is exactly how I feel right about now. he means the world to me and I might not be able to see him for about two years. It's heartbreaking and I wish he was here with me now. I need him so bad and it's many days where I sit and cry thinking about the time I'm going to lose with him. I just want to be by his side and let him know that I love him so much and I would do anything to reverse the situation he's in right now. Love you rojay travis...your bae is missing and loving you non stop.

I'm so feeling this poem and I plan on sending it to my boyfriend. My baby was sentenced to 18 months yesterday and I'm hurting. I feel like my world has been torn apart I feel so sad that it's taking effort just to get out of the bed and the sad thing is I feel so alone and no one understands what I am going through. After reading your post I feel a little better like others are holding it down just like I'm going to for my baby. Ladies hold it down for your man and know this too shall pass!

My Boyfriends has been in Jail for 4 months, got two years to go :( He's so far away and I miss him everyday. It's so true that you don't know what you have until its gone because we both didn't realize how much we loved each other and now it has brought us so much closer. His letters are amazing and when we see each other it's always like the first time. He still gives me butterflies. It's so hard not being able to just call him when I want and knowing he's in pain from missing me, but seeing how many other people who are going through the same thing makes it feel slightly easier. My heart goes out to you all.

My boyfriend went to jail three days ago and I miss him so much, at first I didn't even realize how much I loved him until he went to jail. I couldn't stop crying it hurt so much to know that someone you really love is behind bars and is probably being treated like a animal. And I can't touch him or kiss him or tell him how much I love him, he's only been in jail for 3 days but he could be looking at a very long time in jail and that's a long time of me not hearing his voice or seeing him smile or even touching him, and I don't know how to deal with it. Why did this have to happen to us ,He is such a sweet person and love him and I miss him soo much :(.

Hello, my boyfriend is in prison for 9 years and he was recently addicted to heroin at only 19 years old he has been in and out of foster homes and resorting to drugs is a normal thing. I tried to help him but always he told me "Let me hit rock bottom" The truth, I was deathly afraid what rock bottom was. I am so glad he's in prison now and getting better and reading all the comments really help me and up my spirits! Thanks

My boyfriend just got sentenced for 2 years and 15 on paper 2 days ago. I miss him so much I can't talk to him on the phone he is getting transferred 5 hours away. It sucks. I won't be able to see him a lot. We just had a baby 6 months ago. He is very upset that he won't be able to watch her grow for 2 years I am to. he went to jail on the wrong time his sister is having a baby and he won't even be able to see her baby born. I hate him being away it feels so weird with him being gone. I am so used to being around him a lot I miss him so bad. I can't sleep at night. I can hardly eat. I miss his touch so bad. He will only do a year I hope it goes by so fast. I love this poem that's the way I feel.

Hi,
I think I'm in the same shoes as you all. My boyfriend has gone to jail for 2 years 8 months, and a couple of weeks after he was sentenced I found out I was pregnant. Now the baby is 6 months and he gets out November 2011. Sometimes I feel so weak that I jut want to give up, but our love is still strong.
Anyway good poems

Wow this poem is amazing. My boyfriend is in jail and I'm off to see him in 2 weeks! I'm so excited he's been there for 2 and a half months and I miss him so much more each day. We talk on the phone and write letters, but it doesn't really compare to being with him at home. He got 2 years but will hopefully be out before Christmas.

Wow this poem was just damn. . . way to good. My man is in jail it's hard. It's almost gonna be a month that he's been locked up. I would get that collect call from him and since I couldn't receive them instead of saying his name he'll say a little shout out to me like: "Negra, babe I love You!! I miss you!!" I love getting those calls that means he's thinking of me. Yesterday was his court date he finally got to call me and actually talk to me. I miss him

this poem is touching :(
My boyfriend has been in jail for a year now and I miss him so very much. It is very hard when life pulls you way from the one you love. Life is full of surprises. It is even harder when you can't explain to him how you really feel because he will get more sad. I have to pretend I'm strong when I go see him when in reality is that as soon as I walk out of the jail, I break down into a million pieces and cry holding our children very tight thinking I'm holding him, and wondering when will we be a family again. Right now I'm mom and daddy and it is not easy.

All we do is write each other and I'm waiting for him to get out but it is hard to be alone at home and not having your man. I love him so much we have so much history together. We've been together for 2 years and 3 months. those are the best years days of my life. I'm deeply in love.

My boyfriend had a rough life when he was younger and he really cleaned up after he turned 17. He was on felony probation until this May, then he got arrested for something that wasn't even his and his probation officer violated him. he's only been in there since like the 17th but I am so miserable without him. I didn't even wan to get out of bed on Christmas. Our 3 year anniversary is in March and right now I have no idea when he is getting out. I have no idea what he will get charged with, he already has two charges. I try so hard to be strong but I just feel like I can't I want to cry everyday I miss him so much. I never stop thinking about him. Reading this poem and all these comments made me feel better. Visiting is so hard, it's great to see them and talk to them but you can't kiss or hug and you have to leave after 45 min. I just saw my man for the first time on Thursday and I cried I couldn't help it. Just count the days we will have our men back one day
