  1. 21. I Want You Back

    • By Sania Harris
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2008

    Someone I loved dearly was avoiding me. He sounded more interested in other girls, so I felt really hurt - so hurt that I cried the whole day, and then I wrote this poem. It is straight from my heart.

    Sitting by the river,
    Dreaming through my reflection,
    I wonder what has happened.
    What has caused this distance?

    We used to be together,
    Cuddling close to each other.
    What came between our beautiful love?
    I don't know, though I wish to.

    I can see you now, not alone
    You're holding a hand that's not mine
    Where am I? Why not next to you?
    Why am I away? I don't understand.

    You're smiling to the fullest.
    I am not the one making you happy.
    You are glancing at someone else.
    Why is it not me?

    Seeing you after such a long time,
    My heart sighs again.
    Something inside me growls loud
    'Cause now your hand runs through her hair.

    I stand some distance well away,
    But the surroundings disappear.
    When I look at you, I feel lost inside
    I wish you back, my angel.

    There you are, holding her hand,
    And I am lost, trying to understand.
    I want you back, I really do,
    Just to hold your hand
    And walk with you.

  2. 22. My Rose No Longer

    • By Amanda Sypolt
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011

    The reason behind this poem is very simple. I wrote this poem because of my ex. He broke my heart and left me lonely.

    In my rose garden
    There's a special rose.
    The petals are smooth as satin,
    and remind me of the good times.
    The thorns poke at my fingers,
    and remind me of the bad times.
    The smell was so sweet-
    Like the one who left me.
    As I am reminded,
    I shed a tear,
    Then as more tears shed,
    I can no longer see my special rose.

  3. 23. My Love

    • By Mackenzie R. Whitlock
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2016

    This was inspired by my lost love. I will always love you, and I miss you.

    You're Stuck In My Heart

    Stuck in my heart you'll forever be.
    Breaking, wishing for you to leave,
    But yet longing for your return.
    Spinning around and around,
    Trying to see that you are fine,
    Hoping, praying for your return
    Into my arms
    Where you will forever be.

  4. 24. The Cycle

    This poet writes with perhaps some pessimism that the nature of all love is ultimately to end in sorrow.

    Poem About Hating Someone You Used To Love

    Why do we feel such strong emotion,
    Of complete care and pure devotion.
    It seems to bring, just pain and fear,
    Along with shame and then the tears.

    Though at first, it sure feels great,
    As if, almost, it were in fate.
    With a smile, we first feel love,
    And then we thank Great God above.

    Making it last for a while,
    Thinking he or she is in denial.
    Keeping secrets from each other,
    Living lies with one another.

    Beating ourselves with jealousy,
    Wondering who it is they see,
    The warmth that we had felt before,
    Begins to fly, right out the door.

    Distance then grows the two apart,
    Knowing they are not right at heart,
    The cycle that they had began,
    Finally came unto its end.

  5. 25. If Only

    I had a very special guy in my life that I said goodbye to but felt there were things left unsaid that should have been said at the time of the breakup. I know that I broke this wonderful guy's heart, and this poem was written to let him know that there were so many things I wish I had told him but were left unsaid.

    Unspoken Words That Should Have Been Said To An Ex

    If only I could turn back time and relive my days with you,
    I'd hold on tight with all my might when I found my way to you.
    If only you knew how I felt lost when I knew what I left behind,
    you'd understand why I felt the need to turn back the hands of time.

    If only you knew that letting you go was my single greatest regret.
    And if only you knew that I was hurting too and it's a feeling I can't forget.
    If only you knew I thought of you as the only one to hold and kiss,
    and you need to know before I go, you're someone I truly miss.

    If only you knew that when I met you, you brought color to my day.
    And you need to know before I go, before you, I only saw gray.
    If only you knew when I needed you, you were always there to listen.
    And if only you knew that when you left, a part of me went missing.

    If only you knew, time spent with you was the best part of my day.
    And if only you knew because of you, I am the person I am today.
    If only you knew when I was with you, I had no worries or cares.
    And you need to know after I let you go, I kept you in my prayers.

    You need to know before I go you didn't do anything wrong,
    and you need to know before I go your love only made me strong.
    If only you knew that when I was with you, I never felt sad or alone,
    and if only you knew that my love for you was the best I've ever known.

    If only you knew when I was with you, you never let me down.
    and if only you knew how my love grew every day you came around.
    I need you to know before I go that my love wasn't make believe,
    nor was it a dream, or infatuation, or even a fantasy.

    You need to know before I go, you were the best time of my life.
    And you need to know instead of letting you go, I wanted to be your wife.
    If only you knew when I was with you, we came so close to forever.
    And if only you knew time spent with you is something I'll always treasure.

    If only you knew that I wanted to move up time to see the future
    and see if we had found each other and if our love was truer.
    You need to know that I loved you so, and you gave me so much pleasure,
    and you need to know I don't want to let go but stay in this moment forever.
    If only....

  6. 26. Lost Love

    This poem is about my first great love. We were young teenagers so much in love and hoping for a future. Being so young, we had a lot of growing up to do, and the relationship went into a long-distance relationship when he moved back to his home state after finishing school. He was so special, and our 2 1/2 years together was so special. We eventually moved on, and so the love story ended, but he will always be my first great love, but he is also my long-lost love.

    Remembering My First Love

    Do you remember me like I remember you
    and wonder how our lives might be if we had said “I do”?
    If I could hear those three little words that made my life complete,
    my heart would know what my ears had heard and probably skip a beat.

    Ours was a love story to remember
    from the cold dark winters to warm summer weather.
    Because of you, memories still linger
    of the promise ring you placed on my finger.

    You needed to find your place in this world,
    even if it meant with some other girl.
    I knew I had to let you go
    even though I loved you so.

    Remember our last sad goodbye?
    Our hearts were broken. Tears burned our eyes...
    So the hardest thing I’ve ever done was to accept we had to part.
    But I hope you will remember you’ll always have my heart.

    And so we kissed and we embraced,
    and then I memorized your face.
    You walked away to catch your flight
    but not before we held on tight.

    We both moved on and found new lovers.
    I married one. You live with another.
    Life is not always what is meant to be,
    but I will hope, and dream, and always believe.

    Imagining you lying next to me
    is only a dream, a fantasy.
    And only God knows how I’d feel
    if all of my dreams could turn out real.

    You are always with me.
    You live inside my heart.
    And there you will always be
    and never would we part.

    I will always love you
    and I will always care.
    You changed my life forever.
    You’re my one true love affair.

    You always knew how to ignite the fire.
    You’ll always be my one desire.
    It is always you I’m thinking of.
    You'll always be my long-lost love.

  7. 27. The Lost Love

    • By Frank Romans
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2016

    This was written for the many before me who have lost a true love and for myself. The pain is not unique to me, and others have experienced the same, so this is our shared experience.

    Poem About Not Wanting To Grow Old Alone

    My lover's voice I long to hear,
    My heart will race when she comes near.
    To see her face and touch her skin,
    And hear her words of love again.

    Her voice is faint, so far away.
    I will not see her here today,
    Nor will I get to touch her hair.
    I reach to touch, but she's not there.

    I see the image in my mind
    Of bygone days and better times,
    Of laughter, love, and happy days,
    Before we let it all escape

    I do not want to be alone,
    Growing old, without a home,
    Without my love close by my side.
    Emptiness, I can't abide.

    If you will have me, I'll take you.
    We'll start again, with love renewed.
    Together always, never to part,
    Each holding the other inside the heart.

    Be still my mind, it's just your dream,
    A nightmare, really, it would seem.
    Pride, you see, precedes the fall.
    She won't be back, and that is all.

    I lift my head and raise my glass
    And toast those days that are long past.
    To memories of love and home,
    To days before I was alone.

  8. 28. The Mad Man And The Cat

    • By Danny Bollinger
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2008

    This was written after seeing a man with Alzheimer's talk to a cat about how he would have loved her. I was visiting my grandma who also has Alzheimer's.

    Man With Alzheimer's Poem

    "And I would have loved you,"
    He kept saying to her
    As he ran his hands through her soft fur.
    "And I would have loved you,"
    rolled off of his tongue,
    the words now so soft it seemed almost sung.
    "And I would have loved you."
    With a tear in his eye
    he said the last words with a sorrowful sigh
    "and I would have loved you,
    if only I could."

  9. 29. A Prayer Unanswered

    Oh the mistakes we make!!!

    Waking I find
    Another chill encrusted day
    Awaits me
    Where I shall walk alone in step of time
    To the blighted rhythm
    Of what must be
    And the looming shadows
    Of what might have been

    My only solace
    Comes of looking back
    Upon the horizon of
    Memories past
    Where the fluxing tapestry
    Of life and chance
    Carried you soft and safe
    Into my arms

    And I held you
    And you held me
    And for a time
    No wind of change
    Could bear us sway

    But somehow...
    Some dreadful way how
    My eyes left the beauty of yours
    My arms reached out
    For ambitions of pointless return
    And in deafened silence
    You slipped from me
    For I held you not

    And now I am left to search
    Across the rolling linen waves
    Of life and consequence
    Holding hope that
    Fate will grant me pardon
    And bring you to me
    Once again

    But I age in waiting
    I tire of hoping
    I stammer in broken steps
    For each night your vigil kept
    Brings me aside my bed
    To utter yet again
    A prayer unanswered

  10. 30. No Such Thing As Happy Endings

    • By Ernesto Prince

    The Love I let pass me by

    The first night they meet
    He knew it to be true
    This girl who lied before him
    Was genuine and true

    He looked into her eyes
    The deep browns didn't lie
    She loved him just as much
    Or was it all a lie?

    The nights turned into mornings
    The days went by too quick
    His chances seemed to slip away
    With every day that went

    Then finally the day had come
    She said she couldn't wait.
    Time had passed so swiftly
    He was far too late

    It was then he realized
    He made a huge mistake
    He let the girl he loved
    Simply slip away...

    Loss Of Relationship

    yesterday I was crying...
    deep pain creeping within
    yesterday I was sobering...
    such endless grief, left me shivering

    we were once colorful and new
    in a blissful land of me and you
    just yesterday you were holding me tight
    same yesterday you were gone out of sight

    I've lived my life from this memory
    kept running away, reality been missed
    aches of memories, no future have seen
    "could I ever survive drowning in misery?"

    just yesterday you were gone without me
    tried to ponder whatever reason there'll be
    just yesterday I was too weak to see
    is there any rainbow left only for me?

  12. 32. My Love For You

    • By Matthew Dusfim
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2009

    Is it worse never to find the love of your life, or to find it and not being able to be with her? In this poem I have tried to express the mixed and stormy emotions going through each and every one of us in such a situation.

    Unrequited Love

    The Bit by bit and day by day
    In such a special lovely way
    Do not know why or how to say
    But I shall try to... If I may

    And thus I shall try to explain
    That despite heavy pouring rain
    In times of sorrow and of pain
    My love for you was not in vain

    When I was down and even sad
    If I felt angry rather mad
    If I was in tears feeling bad
    My love for you I did not dread

    I was insulted even mocked
    My same own life I feel was blocked
    The doubts that came and often knocked
    My love for you was safely locked

    Until the day you came to me
    The love in me you did not see
    Without you dear how could I be?
    My love for you I could not free

    And yet you know I still love you
    A love that's strong and oh so true
    Wher'ver you go wher'ver to
    My love for you will follow too

  13. 33. When Love Dies

    • By Billy Arends
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2009

    My poem is for any person ( man or woman) who has ever lost someone. Whether through cheating, love gone cold, hurt in which ever form.
    The one I lost was my burning candle. And all I had to do to keep it burning was pay attention... I extinguished that flame, by hurting her

    When love dies,
    It ceases to exist.
    And the flame that used to be,
    Ceases to persist

    It feels like a wound that won't stop bleeding,
    Like it's your last breath you're about to take,
    And it feels like your soul's watching,
    And all you can do is pray you wake.

    When love dies,
    It's like everything slows down to a stop
    The tears that came rolling down your cheeks
    Are taking ages to drop

    To the cold tiled floor
    I fell onto my knees,
    It felt as if the light followed her shadow,
    As she slammed closed the door...

    Love died,
    I know this because my soul died too.
    And it was hurting as much
    As all the pain I put her through.

    When love died
    I ceased to exist
    The only thing that kept us together...
    Ceased to persist.

  14. 34. Find Love Again With My Ex

    A relationship with her boyfriend going sour. They have broken up but she hopes to be reunited. To that one guy who knows who he is!

    I gave you my heart
    And you gave it back
    When we split apart
    My heart was a whole of black.

    I said I Love You
    I meant it with all I had
    You didn't think it was true
    Which left me so mad.

    April was the end of us
    I couldn't let you go,
    I still meant to impress
    Hoping it would let you know
    That I still need you,
    And wanted to be happy.
    But you knew
    That we both would just end up unhappy.

    I didn't talk to you
    For the longest time.
    I was so blue
    To give a dime.

    To me you are someone else I knew
    Than other people saw.
    I didn't go with the flow
    Ending in me hating you.

    Now things have occurred
    To where there is no good between us.
    Which has become absurd
    And much stress.

    I just want to forgive and forget
    Start over like we never knew one another.
    Act like we just met
    And one day be close like any other!

  15. 35. A Shattered Heart

    • By Christi Ybarra
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2008

    Love like a broken vase

    Some say a broken heart is like a shattered vase
    Fragile pieces scattered all over the place.
    The shattered pieces of broken glass seem to go everywhere
    Unlike the pieces of a broken heart that seem to pierce your soul.
    With faith and hope you try to mend the broken heart
    Unlike the vase it cannot be so easily replaced.
    It takes a while to mend it and then you lock it up
    You hide the key and wait to see if someone can be found
    A special person who will use the key to unlock the heart
    A unique person who will handle the heart with gentle hands,
    Who can be honest, truthful and handle it with care.
    My heart and I wonder is there really that kind of person out there.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2015

    This poem is about me and my struggles to let him go. It's been about two years now, and I still can't get myself to let him go. I hope this poem helps someone else who's going through what I am.

    Poem About Not Being Able To Let Him Go

    The day you said it's over was the day that I died.
    When it became dark, I laid down and cried,
    Going over and over in my head on what to do.
    I could never find the courage to let you be you.

    You called me last night and told me that you still cared,
    But when the call was over I was empty and in despair.
    You were my first love, someone who knew me so well.
    But now that we aren't a couple, people can hardly tell.

    You have moved on with some other girl, I see.
    I cry to myself in the darkness, wishing that it was me.
    But here and now I hear your name over and over again.
    I cover my heart; my heartbeat weakens because of the pain.

    Still Love You

    when you went away my world turned cold and gray.
    when you wanted to leave I begged you to stay.
    you were my life and one day I hoped to be your wife.
    memories of her always hid in the shadows
    so as you can see I fought many battles.
    they say time will mend a broken heart
    I just don't know where to start.
    memories of him I will always cherish,
    I hope this love in my heart will one day perish.

  18. 38. I Wanted To Go With You

    I'm dedicating this poem for my treasured husband of 23 years, Tim McCoy, born 09-09-1958, died, July 12, 2007, at 4:25 pm. My name is Norma Clay McCoy, Tim was the true love of my life, no one can ever take his place in my heart.

    Death Of My Love

    I was a lonely wanderer, searching for a place to belong, you came into my life and gave me love, a place to call home.

    Home is where the heart is, it doesn't always have four walls. Sometimes it can be a park bench, a homeless shelter, no matter where we lay our heads we are together and love counts the most.

    We had our trials in life, even a few brief spats and separations but you had my heart as no one ever before, we always made up and got back together, loving each other ever the more.

    Now you are gone and I can't be with you for awhile, my aching heart is killing me, I cannot smile. You became sick and wasted away, why oh why did you have to leave me all alone?

    I wanted to go with you but I have to wait, wait till my name is called and I hope you come with Jesus to carry me away, this I wait for impatiently each and every day.

  19. 39. Precious Memories

    This is not a lost love between two adults; it is the heartache of losing the loving presence of two beloved grandchildren due to the bitter divorce of my son and his wife. For twenty years there had been utter devotion. The blessing now is that they are now happy in their own life and I have my memories.

    Poem About Losing Grandchildren Due To Divorce

    I will take those precious memories
    And frame them with my love,
    Then hang them in the hallways of my heart.
    I hope the fond remembrance
    Of the joys that once were shared
    Will overcome the tears that want to start.

    Little thought was given
    As the years went quickly.
    We took good times for granted, that is true.
    Perhaps, it all was for the best,
    Enjoying simple pleasures,
    In retrospect, that was all we ever knew.

    There was no use to ask the future
    To give away its secrets.
    No blueprints for what would lie ahead.
    It is the choices that are made,
    Experiences, both good and bad,
    That down life's pathways, all are led.

    Looking back, I sometimes wonder
    If there were things I should have changed,
    A hurt that even now I might appease.
    Has it all been taken from me?
    No, time has shown a tender mercy
    For I still have my precious memories.

    It takes time to heal

    Heal From Broken Heart

    as I lay here staring out the window
    our memories flowing through my mind
    holding back as a tear hits the pillow
    scared of thoughts I might find.
    telling myself I'll be stronger tomorrow
    if you would just come back until then
    but instead it's constant sorrow
    now I have nothing for he was my sin.
    as time should heal all things
    it feels as if it's going so slow
    crying, careless what life brings
    but I do not dare to let it show.
    for he was my love
    now that is gone
    telling myself I'll be happier another day
    until then
    wondering what went wrong
    thinking why didn't he stay.
    I rather just cry now and not hurt later
    and ask myself why this happened to me
    telling myself it'll soon get better
    I really hope
    I believe.
