Moving On Poems

Poems about Letting Go and Moving Forward

Love is a dynamic and changing emotion. Sometimes it grows and sometimes it fades. Moving on from a relationship or marriage, leaving behind a past love, or pursuing a new fling can be scary, uncertain, and difficult. However, the prospect of change and new experiences can also be exciting and a time for discovery. Focusing on the opportunities and experiences ahead rather than dwelling in past memories can help us to move forwards. Our lives are in flux in every experience and moment, and letting go, no matter how difficult, is an important part of that process.

    "One day you're gonna love her,
    But she won't feel the same.
    One day you'll know how it feels
    To have your blue skies turn to rain."

  10. Broken Hearts And Prayers

    • By Alexis Daniels
    • Published: November 2013

    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.
