Divorce Poems

Poems About Divorce

It is an unfortunate fact that divorce has become commonplace in our society. The pain and anguish this is created in a divorce has a ripple effect on the family unit. Often family members are confused as how to act around the now divorced couple. Children are often used as pawns between their father and mother. Each one may try to gain the upper hand in the battle for their children's affection. Getting divorced may be necessary in cases when a relationship cannot be salvaged. However, the couple should keep in mind that the entire family unit will be affected by a divorce.

  6. Last Walk Down Memory Lane

    As we sit here in silence, no longer husband and wife
    I can't forget the vow I made to love you all my life...
    Our last walk down memory lane fills my eyes with tears
    As I find us walking hand in hand in our high school years.

    I never thought this day would come.
    I truly thought you were the one.
    We used to laugh and talk all night.
