Lost Love Poem

Unspoken Words That Should Have Been Said To An Ex

I had a very special guy in my life that I said goodbye to but felt there were things left unsaid that should have been said at the time of the breakup. I know that I broke this wonderful guy's heart, and this poem was written to let him know that there were so many things I wish I had told him but were left unsaid.

If Only

If only I could turn back time and relive my days with you,
I'd hold on tight with all my might when I found my way to you.
If only you knew how I felt lost when I knew what I left behind,
you'd understand why I felt the need to turn back the hands of time.

If only you knew that letting you go was my single greatest regret.
And if only you knew that I was hurting too and it's a feeling I can't forget.
If only you knew I thought of you as the only one to hold and kiss,
and you need to know before I go, you're someone I truly miss.

If only you knew that when I met you, you brought color to my day.
And you need to know before I go, before you, I only saw gray.
If only you knew when I needed you, you were always there to listen.
And if only you knew that when you left, a part of me went missing.

If only you knew, time spent with you was the best part of my day.
And if only you knew because of you, I am the person I am today.
If only you knew when I was with you, I had no worries or cares.
And you need to know after I let you go, I kept you in my prayers.

You need to know before I go you didn't do anything wrong,
and you need to know before I go your love only made me strong.
If only you knew that when I was with you, I never felt sad or alone,
and if only you knew that my love for you was the best I've ever known.

If only you knew when I was with you, you never let me down.
and if only you knew how my love grew every day you came around.
I need you to know before I go that my love wasn't make believe,
nor was it a dream, or infatuation, or even a fantasy.

You need to know before I go, you were the best time of my life.
And you need to know instead of letting you go, I wanted to be your wife.
If only you knew when I was with you, we came so close to forever.
And if only you knew time spent with you is something I'll always treasure.

If only you knew that I wanted to move up time to see the future
and see if we had found each other and if our love was truer.
You need to know that I loved you so, and you gave me so much pleasure,
and you need to know I don't want to let go but stay in this moment forever.
If only....
