  1. 21. Forget

    • By Kristine B. Magdaraog
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2016

    It's the relationship we thought would last, but then the other person gave up. It's been months, but I still can't forget the memories we had.

    Accepting The End Of A Relationship

    The stars above keep reminding me
    Of the times that we spent,
    But the memories that we share
    Have come to an end.

    Now I just need to accept
    That we are already done.
    But now that you're gone,
    It hurts to forget.

  2. 22. The Girl Who Wished For A Time Machine

    Everyone has dated someone who couldn't let go of the past. This poem is about a previous love who could not put the past in the past.

    These teardrops beside me flow,
    From a quiet, happy, thankful soul.
    The years taking their expensive toll,
    Her beautiful smile a grand seed to sow.

    She lowers her head to try and sleep,
    But thoughts of the past run long and deep,
    Attempting to make its victim weak.
    Her memory only shows the harsh and bleak.

    She truly wants to clear her mind,
    However, she cannot erase the passing time.
    Wisdom would implore her to leave it behind.
    Therefore, she could enter a sleep so sublime.

    Alas, this poor lass is wide awake,
    Only regret plagues her mental state.
    She never learns from any prior mistake.
    Thus, the smile she forces is for her own sanity's sake.

  3. 23. I Used To Love You

    • By Avery Rose
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2016

    This poem is about how love, no matter how strong, will still fade if unrequited.

    The Stages Of Unrequited Love

    I used to love you,
    Gently, carefully...
    As I was afraid of falling too deep.

    I used to love you,
    Silently, hopelessly...
    Through endless tests of disappointments and jealousy.

    I used to love you,
    Sincerely, passionately...
    With all of my heart and all of my being.

    I used to love you,
    And I hope one day you'll find someone
    Who will love you as much as I used to.

  4. 24. Emotions After Breakup

    • By Peery J Wambui
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2018

    This poem is about having to move on from a breakup but you can't stop wishing things were perfect and wanting your partner close to you again.

    I don't love you,
    But I also don't hate you.

    I don't want to think about you,
    But my mind finds its way to you.

    I don't want to talk to you,
    But I wait for your call.

    I don't want to cry,
    But the pain is intense.

    I want to forget and move on,
    But my being is craving for you.

    I don't want to see you,
    But your perfect shadow haunts me.

    I want to hold you close to me,
    But I remember you're gone.

    I can take it all,
    But I'm only human.

  6. 26. You're Better Off Being Happy

    Loving someone but you lose your only chance to get your love back.

    Goodbye Message To Someone You Still Love

    I'm glad you're happy.
    I guess it's what I deserve.
    I can't change the fact
    You make my heart swerve.

    I had my chance,
    I screwed it all over.
    Threw away my only luck
    Like a four leaf clover.

    I'm not saying that I'm perfect,
    I'm not saying I'm a nice guy,
    But be mine once again.
    Not only will I make it worth it,
    But I'll bloody try.

    You really don't understand,
    You're worth more than a hundred grand.
    I never wanted it to be like this.
    It hurts because you're the one my heart will miss.

    I can't take back the moment.
    I can't make your happiness change.
    Don't look at me now, I'm broken.
    It's like I'm being shot at a shooting range.

    Forever here, no matter where you are in the world or in my life

  7. 27. Don't Look Back

    This poem is about looking for love but never really getting over who you loved before. You try to make it work, but the same old problems occur.

    Poem About Trying To Find Love In An Old Relationship

    Love doesn't happen overnight.
    Love doesn't argue about what's wrong
    or what's right.
    And don't expect to find a love that will last
    if the only place you're searching is in your past...

    Love is hard to find; it's even harder to let it go.
    Don't settle for something just because it's what you know...

    We tell ourselves this time will be different.
    What may work for a little while longer
    is irrelevant...

    You can't fix what's already been broken.
    You can't believe the new promises that have been spoken,
    because the pain you forgave once before
    will always linger in your mind each time they walk out that door.

    This time won't be the same,
    yet you find yourself playing the game,
    but in this game nobody will win,
    because every sinner is likely to sin again.

    Your heart is in a million pieces,
    Your life is full of hits and misses,
    but one thing that still remains
    is your ability to accept the things you can't change.
    We all make decisions that we regret,
    but it's our choice to forgive,
    just never forget.

    Always stay true to yourself and your values,
    'cause in the end that's all that matters,
    Don't waste time thinking you're not worth it,
    'cause no matter what anybody else thinks,
    there's somebody out there who might just think you're perfect.

    Love doesn't happen overnight.
    Love doesn't argue about what's wrong
    or what's right,
    and don't expect to find a love that will last
    if the only place you're searching is in your past.

  8. 28. Ashes In My Eyes

    • By Aprille Ruth Sidro
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    This poem is about letting go of someone you wish will love you back, but seeing him happy with someone is the reason I set him free.

    When the sun starts to fade
    No I won't give in, 'cause your
    face still remains
    and your soul is in beneath my skin.

    Your body is next to mine,
    yet your heart was
    never mine, it still belong to someone
    so you will remain ashes in my eyes.

    No, your hands could never be mine, but
    my heart is all yours all the time, how could you
    be mine, when you're
    not meant to be mine.

    Oh, I wish I was the one
    who's always with you all
    the time, never I mind the
    imperfections between you and
    I, but you will still remain ashes in my eyes.

  9. 29. Blessing In Disguise

    I met a boy, and he left his girlfriend for me at the end of the school year, and we fell in love during the summer. When we went back to school in the fall, he cheated on me with his ex. I continuously went back to him every time he cheated on me with the hope that things would be better. He used me, and I was distracted by the love I truly felt for him. My first love ended up leaving me for another girl exactly how he left his ex before me. He left without a word after a year and a half of dating.

    Poem About Moving On From Your First Love

    I still remember the moment we met
    The time we shared, I'll never regret
    That summer in the sun we spent together
    I can only hope you'll always remember
    In spite of our love, I am painfully aware
    That you're far gone and no longer there
    Often I don't know what to do
    So many nights I cried over you
    To me it may not feel right
    But at the end of the tunnel there is no light
    You pushed and guided me to achieve
    But in the end you'd just leave
    I sit there and wonder, what went wrong
    But I've got my friends to keep me strong
    If you ever wonder why we're through
    Just look in the mirror, because it's all on you
    What a blessing to have my mind back
    But honesty, you'll always lack
    So with that, I'll forget the pain
    You go ahead and watch me make myself a name
    I spend most of my time thinking of you
    Reminiscing of the things we said we'd do
    The future we planned had so much in store
    Now the thought of it rots me to the core
    I gave you everything and now I can see
    The best I can give you is freedom from me
    It seems now I'll change my fate
    For you, I'll no longer wait
    Why should I hang on to the one who doesn't care
    I now have my own life to spare
    I'll use all the strength I have left within
    I'll push myself to move forward to the new life I must begin
    All the stress you put me through
    I would still never wish on you
    You always walked on me like a rug on the floor
    Maybe I should be grateful you walked out that door
    That door that will be closed, will be locked, will be open no more
    Memories engraved in my heart
    I wish you luck with your brand new start

  10. 30. To Feel

    This song was inspired by my friends.

    You have to be hurt to feel pain
    You have to feel dryness to feel rain
    You have to walk to be able to run
    You have to feel rain to feel sun
    You have to dance to be able to stop
    You have to stand to be able to drop
    You have to be born to be able to grow
    You have to have water to have snow
    You have to be on the ground to go above
    You have to feel hate to be able to feel love.

  11. 31. You Taught Me To Let Go...

    I wrote this poem because everybody gets hurt, but it's not the end of the world.
    Just take it for what it is and move on; he didn't deserve you, anyway. Someday you'll look back and wonder why you even cared about why he left because, in all reality, he did you a favor. It's not about you getting hurt; it's about what you get out of it.

    Poem About Deserving Better

    Used to listen when you said you would always be there.
    I sit and think about all the times we had together,
    and how I thought I used to love you, when you used to care.
    I'd last through any weather,
    but when the our storm came you left at the first sight of rain,
    leaving me here
    to deal with all this pain.
    I sat there crying, thinking what did I do wrong,
    I looked to my mother who said, "Baby stay strong,"
    so I wiped my tears and begin anew,
    new me, new life, and happiness without you.
    Someday you'll miss me, but it will be too late for us to be.
    You didn't know what you were missing,
    but now you do, calling me crying saying, "Baby, I love you."
    I love you too; that's why I'm letting you go.
    I'm a hell of a good woman.
    It's too bad it took you this long to know.
    What we had is in the past, it's a reason we didn't last,
    but whenever you get discouraged about why we're through,
    just look in the mirror
    because it's all on you...
    I hope next time you learn from your mistakes,
    and when that girl needs you do whatever it takes.
    always remember this, I love you, but I love me more.
    I had to learn that when you walked out the door...

  12. 32. Broken Hearts And Prayers

    • By Alexis Daniels
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2013

    This is for the man who broke my heart. I gave him all I had and more and he took everything I did for granted. We are still together, but I'm still praying for a change in him. I love you baby please realize that.

    When your heart chooses a path, and you walk so far,
    nothing can turn you back from where you are.
    No pain, no scars can make you turn away,
    there's nothing that anyone can do nor say.

    You're scared, your hurting and the tears seem to never end,
    but you think in your mind "I would do it all again".
    For the little moments, that get you through the bad,
    For the few happy moments that get you through the sad.

    For the few laughs and smile, and the jokes and the care,
    that you wish so wholeheartedly would always be there.
    You'd try to make them happy in every possible way,
    but it seems to worsen with every passing day.

    All you want is for them to hold you and let you know that they care,
    but know matter how hard you try, they don't, and it doesn't seem fair.
    Your whole heart now broken, you hope for a change,
    but you know somehow even through your prayers they will always be the same.
    Your love won't let you leave, and you continue to hope for the best,
    and pray every night that God will take care of the rest.

  13. 33. Why It Has To Be You?

    When you fall in love, you must be ready to get hurt and expect that your relationship will fall out of love so that when time comes that you realize you're not really meant to be, it won't hurt you that much.

    Poem About A Developing Relationship

    Sitting alone and silently
    I recall a special part of my life
    That part came unexpectedly
    And lasted only for a while.

    My life has been quiet and peaceful
    Until that unforgettable moment
    You came like a silhouette of my soul
    Then you walked right through my heart.

    Every day is a picture of happiness
    There's no hint of loneliness
    Everything is wonderful
    Because I spend it with you.

    But then, as time goes by
    Feelings begin to fade away
    Tears fall down one by one
    And it kills me to say goodbye.

    Every time my mind says move on
    my heart says hold on
    So many questions inside my head
    But the answers are all up to you.

    Loving someone like you
    Without boundaries
    Makes me think deeply again,
    Why, why it has to be you?

    I loved a girl that did not feel the same, and now I can't look into her eyes without feeling shame, so I try to distant myself from her, which hurts as much as loving her.

    Poem About Love Not Being Returned

    I loved her eyes, I loved her hair,
    I loved her looks, I loved her stare.
    I loved her attitude so full of delight.
    I loved her mind so quick and so bright.

    I loved her look when she got mad,
    I loved her with all I had.
    Although I loved her with my all,
    She did not love me, not at all.

  15. 35. Trust

    • By Kieno
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011

    This poem came to me from my heart, after my relationship kept falling apart.

    Poem About Broken Trust

    Your words begin to mean nothing to me,
    You continue to lie under your breath.
    Had me convinced that you were different,
    Yet here I am, with a broken trust.

    My heart torn out from the center of my chest,
    Ripped into a million pieces.
    You promised me over and over
    That you would change for the better.

    But I soon came to realize
    That you're no different than the first time we met.
    Each event replayed itself,
    And each time you betrayed me.

    Again I am standing here in this empty hole,
    Listening to the echoes of your promises fade away.
    I really thought you would change for me,
    I really believed that you cared for me.

    Oh, how wrong I was
    To put my trust in the likes of you.
    The pain I am feeling now
    Is the pain I'll forever retain.

    Over and over again,
    I am left with nothing.
    No matter what I do,
    I always get the blunt end of the stick.

    Normally I would say I'm to blame,
    But sadly I do not deserve this claim.
    My eyes have reopened
    To never again let you gain my trust.

    In the world we live in now
    Has very little, if any,
    Able bodies that I can trust,
    Is it so that only I can earn this trust?

    I don't believe I'll ever truly understand the meaning of trust.
    I won't live by this word,
    For its meaning is far too easily broken,
    And very difficult to fix.

    No longer will I allow trust to govern my life,
    No longer will I allow your love in my life.
    I stand here alone,
    With a broken trust.

    My last words to whom it may concern,
    My trust in you was a privilege.
    You continued to break the very string
    That held my trust for you.

    In the end,
    You betrayed me with more than I can say,
    Left me
    With a broken trust and a broken heart.

  16. 36. I Love You

    • By Karissa L. Bailey
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A woman struggles with feelings she still has for her man after she has already broken up with him.

    Relationship Made Of Glass

    The intentions are real
    But the truth is untold
    Patiently awaiting the lies to unfold
    Her heart shatters with the thought of his touch
    How could she let him control her this much
    She holds onto a memory of how it used to be
    Tempted by hatred, will she always grieve
    For that man, just a child inside
    He'll always have a pull on her soul
    And a place to reside
    She says that it is over
    That is really it this time
    Her life is torn apart and
    Her heart is in a bind
    Patiently waiting for those feelings to fade away
    It makes it harder when he crosses her mind every day
    His sarcasm breaks the silence
    Her heart follows it to the floor
    Her body feels overwhelmed
    When he walks through the door
    She shouldn't still feel this way
    She shouldn't still care
    After all those times she needed him
    Why wasn't he ever there
    But she is the one who called it off,
    The relationship made of glass
    As fragile as a porcelain doll,
    Was it really meant to last?!

  17. 37. Lost Love

    This poem is for all the people who have had to say good-bye to a love that just was not meant to be but was real and honest. Not always do we get to be or stay with the person that we love, and we have to let them go and wish them well as they move on.

    Poem About A Love Not Meant To Be

    The most amazing moment was when we met
    The love and time I have shared with you
    have all been without regret...

    In spite of our love...
    I am painfully aware
    That you are gone,
    And no longer there..

    You made up your mind and you went away...
    as things started to not feel right...
    I know it's pointless to wish for you to stay...
    because at the end of the tunnel there is no more light

    Often I don't know what to say or do..
    So many times I have cried over you...
    Emptiness and sorrow is now a part of me,
    Since I have to accept that we will never be..


    Our memories continue to live in my heart
    As I wish you well with your brand-new start

    Please, believe me when I say
    You will always be with me
    Come what may

  18. 38. My First Love.....My First Heartbreak

    I am a woman of independence. I can say that I am successful in my family, work, studies and career except in love. At the age of 24, for the first time in my life, I fell in love with someone. I thought my first love will last, but I made mistakes. I lost love because of what I am. The guy thinks I am a woman so hard to reach breaks my heart and every time I think of him, I really don't know how to mend my broken heart.....worst, he's eyeing our common friend.

    I never thought I would love someone like you
    Never in my dreams that I would meet you
    But then, as I travel in my life's journey
    You walk into my life and I fall for you.

    I never know how is it to be in love
    Until that very special moment
    You brought wonderful things in my life
    You opened my eyes to see the beauty of love.

    You are my first kiss
    You are the first guy who hugged me tenderly
    You are the first man who held my hand lovingly
    You are my first love.

    You are the one who taught me how to love sincerely
    You showed me the way to your heart
    You've taught me everything that I should know about love
    I told myself, the story of my life is all about you.

    You cared for me, and I really appreciate it
    You showed me how to love unselfishly
    But you never teach me the art of letting go
    You never teach me the cure of hurting so much.

    I thought my first love will be my last
    I thought its you that I belong to
    But now, what I once thought remains as thoughts
    For you are now waiving goodbye.

    All your smiles are for me
    But now, its for somebody else's
    Your stare so full of love
    Its for someone's comfort.

    The hug and kiss that I once have
    Your heart once all mine
    Now, they all belong to somebody
    It hurts to know you are already gone.

    Deep in me, I made a promise
    I will never fall in love again
    Unless its you, my first love,
    My one and only...

  19. 39. Everything Was Nothing

    • By Libby Bergmann
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2014

    Breaking up and moving on.
    This poem is about coming to terms with a break up.

    Bittersweet Goodbye Poem

    The looks, the heat
    Every smile, so sour, so sweet.
    I had known you made me complete.
    Everything I needed, I never wanted more,
    Yet every time I was run down straight to the core.
    Every kiss, every step, every dance on the floor,
    Everything was nothing. When you left me...out that door.
    Our life, our plans, our future, in your hands.
    Like a stab or a wound. I'll get better...if I can.
    I know it's not the same, forever is the blame.
    I tried so hard, for one who wanted more, for someone's heart
    Who won't be allowed to be tamed.
    It was the best, a love-never small but when one
    Leaves the other, the best will fall.
    Let the tears drop. Let the feelings fly.
    Because at least not in public, I will not cry.
    My heart still beats, locked in your chest.
    It's pitiful, sad, but I love you, dear traitor.
    If you can stay, you can trample my heart, but don't ever go away
    But if not, you're gone, I don't expect less
    But if it's true just lay with me and rest
    Help me rebuild me
    Out of whatever's left.

    Goodbye Poem To The One You Love

    What the eye does not see the heart does not grieve for...
    But when the truth comes out, it will always hurt more
    Blinded by love, I failed to see how much of an arsehole
    You really were to me
    Perhaps too young, too crazy and free
    I guess I will never understand why you did that to me
    They say if you love somebody then you should set them free
    As you never came back I think it was meant to be
    I am not bitter or angry anymore, in fact my life has been better
    Since you walked out the door.
    I thank you for the gift you gave to me
    A very special treasure, it truly is a pleasure
    I gave you a chance; in fact, I gave you so many
    But you couldn't be bothered to even spend a penny
    The door was still open, but nobody came
    I should have known it would still be the same
    It is not my place to play God with life
    But if you don't make the effort, you're not worth the strife
    Perhaps one day you might make the call, to make the wrongs right
    And not start a fight
    I hope by then it's not too late, but I suppose I can't change fate.
    I would like to think we are at peace with each other
    At one point in time you were my finest lover
    Some people just aren't meant to be together, but that doesn't mean
    You are lonely forever
    Somewhere there is someone who dreams of your smile
    And finds in your presence that life is worthwhile
    So when you are lonely remember it's true
    Somebody somewhere is thinking of you
