Lost Love Poems
Published: January 3, 2023
The loss of a lover, whether because they have passed on or for any other reason is a heartbreaking experience. Some never fully recover. There might always be a small place in your heart that holds the pain of this experience. This is natural and fine. Even when you find another person to love, it is OK to hold a place for the lover that has passed. You shared something profound together. The previous relationship that you had is not like your new relationship. Every relationship is unique and should be allowed a place in your heart.

As I sit and ponder the day away.
I remember the young love I gave away.

Along with shame and then the tears.Featured Shared Story

The day you said it's over was the day that I died.
When it became dark, I laid down and cried,
Going over and over in my head on what to do.
I could never find the courage to let you be you.
I'm sure it won't be easy repairing my poor heart.
I've gone about it knowing right from the very start.

If he is ready to date
I have no chance
I would already be too late
