I Cry

Published by Family Friend Poems March 2008 with permission of the Author.

I'm sitting on the porch,
Wind blowing through my hair.
The ducks are frolicking in the pond,
But I just can't seem to care.

Life goes on around me.
I don't participate.
I go through all the motions,
But what I really do is wait.

I dream about the day
That you'll come home to me.
Nothing else is important.
Why can't people see?

I don't want to go out.
I don't want to have fun.
I don't want to do a thing
Until all is said and done.

They took you in the summer.
Now fall is almost finished.
Winter will be here very soon,
And then the year will have diminished.

You have no idea how much I cry.
I never let you know.
It's so hard out here without you,
But I'm not allowed to let it show.

I must pretend all is fine.
Everyone thinks all's okay,
But what I never ever tell them
Is that I cry for you every day.

My sister left me nearly 4 years ago, but I still cry for her. I just can't stop thinking about her. I really want to see my sister again. I love her so much I wrote a poem about her. I love you, Sister!

I know how you feel. I love someone who moved away from me, and now I haven't seen him for over 2 years. What hurts is that he doesn't know that I love him. He is so handsome and decent. I cry for him inside all the time. Outside, I am happy and look like I haven't got a worry in the world. I've tried to forget, but it is so difficult, and I can't do it. I have found someone else, but he doesn't match up. I just wish my old one was back and everything could go back to what it is was like. We were so close. Everyone must remember though that the Lord will see us all through, so if we trust him we do feel a lot better. This did work for me as I came closer to him after an incident.

Wow, this poem is how I end almost every letter to my husband. They took him the beginning of summer also. Our daughter was 6 months old, and today she turned 1 year, and he missed it. I cry every single night. I can't smile, I can't play happy, but I have to for my daughter. It's awful. I'm scared she will not remember him as she was only 6 months old. We spent every waking moment together, the 3 of us, and he's such an amazing daddy. This is so hard, and I'm going through so much. Thank you for writing this. It helps me see I'm not alone. I just wish I had someone to talk to. I've been so depressed and I have to put on a happy face for our baby, but no one gets how hard it is when all I want to do is cry. Thank you for this.

Hang in there Kayla. I'm not sure what you mean your man left you or if he has passed away. I have no children on my own. But I want children. I was alone the 30 first years of my life. I was longing for love and a meaning in life. Slowly dying. Then I met a sweet, warm hearted girl. We lived together for 10 years. Now she has left me. About one and a half year ago. And I am back where I started. She lives only a stone's throw away from me. Words can't describe how much I miss her. We used to hold hands when we closed our eyes in bed and fell to sleep. Now her hand is here no more. We still see each other. Hopefully she will come back, one day. I understand how it is to love someone. And to miss someone. Don't give up, Kayla. There are people who feels with you :) Sincerely, Reidar from Lofoten, Norway.

So sorry to hear you're going through this. Your story is very touching, and I totally feel your pain. It actually brought me to tears. I hope things have turned around for you and you're doing better. Always remember there's someone out here that feels and is going through what you are. I know it's hard, but keep praying, as I will for your family.

I finally found the one I thought. Never have I ever been so happy. Things felt perfect when I was with him. Had some firsts with him. Everything was going perfect, too perfect. He had to pick up and move, three and a half hours away. I was completely torn, as I still am. I don't know what to do without him. Nothing makes sense anymore. This poem.. describes everything so perfectly..

My classmate. I lost her for ever. I am a programmer. I just wish I could program my love a happy ending. She was a light shone for 6 years but left its luminance there. From 2009 to 2014.
Sister, lover, daughter, beloved and an inexhaustible stock of laugh and. Life.
Last time when we met she cleansed an apple for me, believe me love is real, I thought if I couldn't see her again. She helped me almost over 100 times. I swear to you, I still don't know if you loved me.
I just want to tell you that sometime I weep bitterly sitting on same bench. She never died it's just that she wanted to know if I missed her. I just can't imagine weeping her. If you ever come back and read it know that I am single and will leave so, just like you. Hey it's raining outside. Hey it's raining on my cheeks. Hey I miss you.

17 years I met someone very special I fell in love for the first time, but I made a mistake and let her go. I regretted making that mistake all these years. Throughout the years I was married 5 years had 2 kids, but that special someone from 17 years ago I never forgot about. Every now and then throughout the years we would talk to each other my heart can't stop loving her. It's hard but I'm willing to do what it takes to have her back in my life. I've come to realize that she is the only woman that can make me happy. I still believe until this day that she is my soulmate, but throughout the years she got married, divorced, kids and a bad relationship. But just recently we got back in contact with each other and my heart still deeply loves this woman.

That's weird. I'm going through something identical. The only difference is we were apart for 27 years....if you ever need advice just message me on messenger. I think it will help if I have someone to talk to you about the situation to compare notes just give each other advice. He was my first. At 15 years old we were forced apart by mama. There's a lot more to it than that. I won't get into right now, but here we are 27 years later, reconnected and I am more in love now than I was.

I first spoke to him about two years ago. He is my first and only love, and is my high school sweetheart. He is very far away right now, and it kills me to know that I cannot even hold his hand. I miss my boyfriend so much; he tells me he loves me and wants to marry me. My parents won't let me speak to him any longer, because apparently he is destructive to my personality. I feel like the Juliette to his Romeo, and he doesn't realize how often I cry for him. I wish things were simple.

She was one of my best friends for what would have been a year, but now she just plain out hates me. I really want her to come back only because it hurts to much to love anybody else. I know she won't though because she's with someone else. Nobody cares about the guys anymore, I swear it...

I have known my husband for about 21 years and we have dealt with separation and reunion...he is now in prison and I miss him so much, knowing I can't hold him whenever I need to or feel his kiss or the look of love in his eyes. I am counting down the time till we are together. He is the better part of me! I love you Kurt with all my heart and soul!

I just need some advice and someone to talk to while my fiancé of 7 years is gone doing time. I don't know exactly how long he is going to get, but I do know that it will take a year for him to get in court, and I just want to be able to make it through and be here when he comes home.

I have been with this man as long as I can remember, but, he's not who I have been in love with all these years. I am still in love with my high school love. The bad part I have to see him everyday. We went to different schools after graduation. When I see him at work it is so hard to stay professional. He know how I feel and just recently he told me how he feels. Unfortunately, we are both married. We can only wonder what could have been. We have so much in common it is scary. Wishing it was simple.

I am in a relationship with my boyfriend of 8 years an he has went to jail he has been in jails for 4 months and 14 day I miss him deeply. We have that crazy strong love nothing can come between us not even this jail situation. But what it does is flair up my emotion and makes me sad because I can't see him when I want to or I can't call him when I need him.. But over all it's making us stronger and realizing reality in life because we were meant to be together.. And this I know because I haven't went nowhere yet and I ain't... God has a plan for us so I'm not worried.. God is great God.. I miss and Love My Willie Poo..

I am in love with a guy I am no longer with it's been over a year. I stopped talking to my friends about it they have too much going on in their life to listen to me cry over it. He texts me some times to see if I'm ok but I don't cry to him anymore. I know he has moved on. And it's my fault but I can't erase him from my heart. It hurts so much and I don't know anymore if it's just something I tell myself to get by or if it's true that he will come home one day. God I miss my superman...

It's been three going to four years. Though it's been years, you've never been out of my mind, my heart, my everything. Though you thought I've moved on, having boyfriends and so, but all was just cover. Nobody knows that all along, you were the only one in my heart. I remembered all our good and bad times together. But I doubt you would. It's been a good 1 year since I last saw you. I thought your appearance won't affect me anymore, but at that moment when you appeared, I then realized I was totally wrong. My mind went real blank and my heart was all messed up. But yet, I've to show you that I'm not by smiling to you and walked away as if we don't know each other. That was the part that hurt me the most. I've turned in to a heartless girl. I am afraid to get serious in relationship. You made me fall so hard and I still can't get up. If time could turn back, I'll choose the same path again, but I'll make sure our outcome isn't like now.. I miss you, still. As strong as before.

I miss my baby...so much I LOVE HIM SO MUCH"
