Abandonment Poems

Poems about Abandonment and Loss

Family is who we look to when we need help. We expect our parents to raise us, our grandparents to love us, and our brothers and sisters to always be there for us when the chips are down. They are our blood and we depend on that connection. When a family member doesn't live up to our expectations we feel abandoned. When a parent, grandparent or older brother or sister puts their needs in front of our own, we feel abandoned and alone. In such a case, we are likely to feel sad, alone and angry.

    • By LaKandace Harris
    • Published: February 2006

    Broken promises and sad goodbyes you left me standing all alone with tears in the well of my eyes.
    In the blink of an eye, you turned your back and walked away;
    often I wonder if I'm the reason you didn't stay.
    Everyday I dream of how perfect my life would be if you were here....
