Goodbye Love Poem

When you fall in love with someone, there's no need for reason. You don't ask why or how because you just feel it. It may be shocking sometimes how amazing it is. Yes, love also may lead you to being broken or shedding tears, but the best part is that you experienced falling in love. You're just being human and followed your heart. It's normal.

It's not bad to enter in a relationship. Only that you have to take risks and expect the unexpected. Because sometimes love is unpredictable; maybe today you're happy and tomorrow you aren't....

I Love You And Goodbye


Published: August 2008

Not once did I expect this to happen.
Never in my wildest dream have I've fallen,
For a boy who wasn't my prince charming
Nor to someone who is my friend.

It must have been your sweetness that melted my heart
Or your gentle smile that could be the start.
Whatever the reason for me to feel this way,
One thing I know - this strange feeling grows stronger everyday.

All this time I've been praying
For you to see and look at me as a lady.
Every now and then I woke up dreaming
That I could be your girl, not just a friend.

Then reality broke me into pieces
It wounded me badly as it came to my senses
That you belong to someone else,
And I'm left alone with all this heartache.

A few might have a clue,
But nobody knows the pain I've been through.
They can't guess the sleepless nights
Nor count the tears I've cried.

My friends see me smiling and laughing,
Yet deep inside there's no place for denying.
I know I have to surrender and let go -
At least to cease and ease the misery.

Still I'd be happy,
Because happiness means seeing you being one.
And let me say this for once, I love you!
But I love you more, so goodbye...

It's not bad to enter in a relationship. Only that you have to take risks and expect the unexpected. Because sometimes love is unpredictable; maybe today you're happy and tomorrow you aren't. But one thing is for sure, in every ending there's always a beginning. This poem totally spoke for what my heart wants. I'm still longing for my past. It makes me want to go back, approach him and turn back the old times. It was a short-term relationship, but the pain on my heart healing is a continuous process. Sometimes I lowered my pride and followed what my heart wanted, but it's not enough. So, to the person I loved before, I love you and goodbye. It's time for me to love myself and see what's in store for me as I find my future husband.

This was the first guy I’ve ever loved in my life. The thing is that I’ve never met him in person. We met through a game, and the minute I spoke to him and heard his voice, I knew I was in love. I don’t know if it was his laugh or his jokes, but I fell in love instantly. The more I came to learn about him, the more perfect I realized he was. I confessed it to him one day. After knowing him for three months, I told him I liked him. He rejected me and told me he didn’t feel the same way, but our friends found out I liked him and started teasing me about it. I don’t know if this was an attempt to make me jealous or if this was real, but one day our friends told me he was in love with someone else. I never met those friends either (they all lived in the same place). Insecure, I went to check, and he was. He was in love with someone else. When he asked if I was okay, I responded with, “I’m happy as long as you’re happy.” I was not okay.

I fell in love with my friend. I never imagine that I would fall in love with him. Actually, he is not that kind of person I thought I would love. But just one day my feeling for him changed and this kind of feeling let me become weird. I always focused my attention on him. I told him I have a special feeling for him, but he said he treated me as a friend. But even though he refused me, I just cannot stop. When I see him I know I cannot stop the feeling. I cannot stop loving him. There is still a hope in my heart that maybe we can be together someday. I was drunk and cried 3 times for my bad feelings. I want to stop, but I just cannot make it. This is the first time that I used all my heart to love someone. I know I need to stop or I will be so sad every day.

That's the same thing going on here. I love him so much that I keep on hoping for him to love me too one day. I keep on crying over him. It hurts me though. It's been a while, but I can't stop thinking about him. I miss him every day. This is the first time for me too that I've loved someone with all my heart!

Oh, this poem is the echo of my heart. I'm getting down with it. It is expressing very strong feelings of an everyday women.
I'm a woman and I'm going through the pain of forbidden love. I love him but he's not mine. He has teached me the real meaning of love. It hurts when you can't see him everyday when you awake. I love you Emy, you're my life.

I'm in the same situation right now. I love him, but he's not mine. And yes, he also taught me the real meaning of love! Every time I open my eyes in the morning and close them in the evening, all I wanna see and think about is him. Love is giving endlessly, without asking for anything in return. Love is thinking about someone's happiness.

Sadgirl, maybe your family won't care, maybe you just think they will. I was with a black guy once and I thought that my family did not like him or black people but I was wrong, after a year I started bringing him around and my family accepted him because I did. All that mattered was that he was good to me. stay strong lil mamma, just follow your heart.

Hi there The Sad Girl, just read your story. All I can say is that, if that person is really making you happy and if you really love him you should fight for him. Coz if your family really loves you they would be happy for you, & they won't judge the person you love. :) think about it, it's not everyday you could find a man who would fight for you and for his love.

Well, I love someone and he loves me too we've met a year ago, we spent the most great moments ever, none makes me happy as he does, until now I still have a small hope to be together one day, but he is black and since my family hates the blacks well I'm afraid it's all over for us, but he doesn't want to give up on me and he still fighting to get me back... this is my sad story, I need advice :-) please thanks.

I loved how this poem kind of makes me think of something similar that I went through and I can see how this person feels because I have been down a road a lot like hers.
