Poems About a Lost Love

The loss of a lover, whether because they have passed on or for any other reason is a heartbreaking experience. Some never fully recover. There might always be a small place in your heart that holds the pain of this experience. This is natural and fine.

The previous relationship that you had is not like your new relationship. Every relationship is unique and should be allowed a place in your heart.
