Lost Love Poem

Don't Forget Me

Distance is only a number, but love is infinite. Sadness is only a moment, but love is a lifetime. I tell myself that a lot. I met a guy, and we had great chemistry. We understood each other and got along instantly, but I had to go away, and my heart shattered quickly. He hugged me goodbye and he was burned into my memory.

700 Miles From My Heart

©

Published: September 24, 2018

In my dreams you're right by me
Sleeping through the night beside me,
And when I wake up and it's a dream,
I don't have any tears left to comfort me.

I've locked my heart away
And I've dreamed about the day
I'm carelessly walking someplace
And run into someone just to see your face.

But my heart is broken.
It's been effortlessly stolen,
And I hope you will forever be holding it,
Fixing the crooked pieces that were bent.

Because the last time I hugged you,
You held me tight,
Loved me as I cried,
And said it would be all right.

Because time is just a number
And sorrow isn't forever,
And I promise I will always remember
All the good times we have had together.

Because I love you more than words can say
As all my old infatuations fade away.
I wish I could look into the future and see our fate.
Maybe then I could calm my heart rate.

And I think of you every day.
There isn't a day that I don't picture your face.
I cry every time it rains
Because I picture our first date.

And I miss the way you laugh
Because it brings me joy whenever I'm sad,
And if I'm with you, life has dealt me a good hand
Because only with you do I realize what I have.

I have a guy who makes me laugh
Who truly cares if I'm sad,
Who makes me smile when I'm mad,
And listens to me when I rant.

So between now and then,
Please don't forget who I am
Because it has been said
You can forgive but never forget.

So please don't forget my face
Or how when I'm nervous I pace.
And think of me whenever it rains
So that when we meet again we will be in the same place.

We will be in love without a care
Because what we had is rare.
You're exactly perfect down to every hair.
Even if there was an error, I would never care.

I love you!

I know how it feels. I actually tried friends with benefits. This guy and I connected like that; we understood each other so well, but his best friend found out and he ended it yesterday. I fell in love with him, and although he hasn’t left, it feels like he has. I just wish I were chosen, but I can’t turn back time. This guy and I are still friend, but reading your poem has me in tears. You’re an amazing writer.
