Broken Hearts' Day


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2018 with permission of the Author.

Here I sit, all alone
in my quiet, empty home.
Where do broken hearts go
on this sweethearts' day?
I don't know!
Rest assured, I will visit your grave,
grasping our love and the memories we made.

I can't let you go.
I can't make you stay.
So tell me now,
what do I do with this day?

Broken Hearts' Day,
that's what today is.
Tears and sadness are how I live.
Partners for life, that's what you said,
but here I lie alone in our bed.

So full of sadness, consumed in grey.
No one to hold me on Valentine's Day.
You will be mine again someday,
but for now,
right here is where I lay,
all alone on this
Broken Hearts' Day.
