Poem Pleading Wife To Come Back

I wrote this today, after going through a divorce. I was with my ex for 16 years, and now I'm able to put into a few words how I feel.

Broken Heart

Published: July 2015

I know you say you love me,
But you don't see
How this breaks my heart,
Since we are now apart.

I wait for you on a whim,
I lose and only you win.
My heart breaks in the dark,
Waiting for you to fix my heart.

All the years that we shared
Have disappeared and no one cared.
We had a love so strong, can't you see,
They were jealous of you and me.

I lie here and cry in the night,
Wishing you were holding me tight.
In the darkness I shall hide,
Wishing you were by my side.

Bring your light back to me,
For you are the one, you see.
My true love is all I seek,
For now I am too weak

I will love you till the end of time,
Oh, I wish you were still mine.
All I have are all these tears,
What's left of 16 years.

I try to hold the pain within,
But at night the tears begin.
You and the boys are my life,
Oh, I miss my wife.

Please take these tears away,
And come home to stay.
Only you, you alone,
Can save this broken home.

Buddy, I feel your pain. Obviously, reading divorce poems... I too was married for 16 years with two children. Oh how I wish I could have made her feel more love. She's gone now and I feel she's moving on but I would take her back in a second as she is truly the other half of me.
