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. Even when you find another person to love, it is OK to hold a place for the lover that has passed. You shared something profound together. 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.

51 Poems on Love That's Been Lost

  1. 1. The Love Of My Life

    • By Dave
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008

    I wrote this poem for the love of my life. She has come in and out of my life for over twenty years now. I always knew that I loved her but did not realize until recently that she was the only woman that I have ever truly loved.

    To the love of my life,
    though fate never allowed me to make you my wife.
    When we met so many years ago,
    it was love at first sight that I know.
    I loved you so much and for only you I cared,
    but with you those feelings I never shared.
    Then I learned for another you cared.
    To come between you I never dared.
    Not because I did not want to,
    but because I wanted happiness for you.
    Then to the arms of another I did go,
    but with her, love I never did know.
    For this I now know that I was wrong,
    for all these years your love I've longed.
    Of you I have thought throughout the years.
    For you I have shed so many tears.
    So long ago I solemnly vowed
    to tell of my love if fate allowed.
    Our paths crossed again not so long ago.
    I remembered the vow of my love you should know.
    Before I could tell you, you gave a surprise.
    You told me you loved me and brought tears to my eyes.
    You told of your love and how much you cared,
    how you felt sad that this you had not shared.
    You said that you felt you had told me too late
    and for this you said you I must hate.
    But it is you I love and never could hate
    To know of your love is never too late.
    You told me of things you wanted to do,
    all of this and more I have wanted too.
    All this time I have dreamed of your touch.
    To know you wanted the same means so much.
    We have shared so much from the present and past.
    I have prayed so much that this would last.
    You have told me that what we want is wrong.
    How can this be when we have loved so long?
    Something happened and we fell apart
    Crushing my dreams and breaking my heart.
    To love you was a gift from above.
    The gift of time, the gift of love.
    My heart won't allow me to let you go.
    It wants and misses you so.
    I tried to leave to mend the pain,
    but is about to drive me insane.
    Saddened and hurting, my heart goes on,
    knowing again that you are gone.
    Because in your hands is where my heart lies,
    alone and depressed it sadly cries.
    Please know that this is how I truly feel
    because twice in my life you have made it all real.
    I know you had feelings that you just would not show.
    I know that it hurts when you want to let go.
    My actions say yes but heart still says no.
    I will never get to feel your most intimate touch.
    God knows though I love and miss you so much.
    I love you with my heart and soul.
    You made me feel loved, you made me feel whole.
    I have always known that you are the one for me.
    I still believe though you say it can't be.
    There is one thing that I have to say.
    I love you too much to just walk away.
    We said goodbye, but I want you to know.
    Goodbye is goodbye but not forever though.

  3. 2. 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.

  5. 3. The One Who Got Away

    • By Kiera
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2008

    To all the strong females who have been hurt in the past and don't believe they will ever find a true, real man again, this poem is a lesson learned the hard way, for you.

    My heart literally hurts.
    My chest is in pain.
    Life without you
    Will never be the same.

    I can't blame you
    Because I did you wrong too,
    But now that it's officially over,
    I don't know what to do.

    We started out as friends
    As I denied my feelings.
    You came to me;
    You wanted more with more meaning.

    I did, but I was scared.
    When you tried to be there, I left.
    I thought you were better than me,
    The best man I ever met.

    As time went on,
    I regretted my actions,
    Got caught up in my insecurities.
    They stopped me from acting.

    I couldn't believe you chose me
    When I knew you deserve better,
    So I carried on,
    As if I never met you.

    I finally got the nerve
    To look you in the eye.
    Such a beautiful man you are.
    It shook me inside.

    I tried to mend what I tore,
    But the damage was done.
    I came back too late.
    You found someone.

    I'll never forget your smile.
    I'll never forget your kiss.
    But your presence in my life
    Will forever be missed.

  6. 4. Moving On

    • By Karren
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2009

    I just wrote this poem a while ago; my boyfriend and I broke up and he chose another girl over me despite the fact that we're having a baby. He literally pushed me away, and I'll always remember his last words, "Please, just please let me go. I don't love you anymore!" It hurts so much; I just hope I'll be able to forget him and go on with my life.

    I treasured you in my heart.
    I wish we'd never be apart
    Because you're the best thing I've ever had.
    I never thought I could be this sad.

    You told me you're better off alone.
    Somehow I believed you, and I tried to be strong.
    Deep inside me I know something is wrong,
    But because I loved you, I continued to hold on.

    And then one day I woke up with tears in my eyes.
    I told myself "that's enough" and so I realized
    That I've given everything I've ever had,
    But despite all of these, you chose to break my heart.

    It's true I've never been perfect,
    But I thought you told me that everyone has its own defects.
    I know I hurt you; I know I made you cry,
    But I've always been true to you; my love was never a lie.

    So go on, live your life the way it should be.
    I'm finally letting go, so now you're free.
    I'm moving on, but I will always remember
    The friend I had in you that I hope I'll have forever.

  7. 5. I Could

    • By Chrys Lea
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2017

    This is about someone I care about a lot, and I waited until it was too late to tell them how I felt. Now they like someone else, and I don't have much of a chance to get them back.

    I Lost My Chance With You

    I could dream of you forever,
    But it wouldn't put me beside you.

    I could call your name on end,
    But you'll never hear me.

    I could ask a million questions,
    But I'll never get the answer I want.

    I could write a hundred poems,
    But you would still never understand.

    I could have said it before it was time to leave,
    But I said it in a little note.

    I could try to forget what I feel,
    But I've pushed too much out already.

    I could lie to myself,
    But lying exhausts the soul.

    I could give up on you,
    But too much of me still loves you.

  8. 6. A Lost Love

    When my first love and I broke up I didn't know how to handle it. I couldn't sleep. I couldn't eat. I didn't know how I was going to move on. It was during this very painful time that I discovered the only avenue through which I could move on was by expressing my sorrows via poetry. And although we never got back together, early mornings spent writing and rewriting and rewriting again are what pushed me forward to the point where I became comfortable with the fact that it was really over.

    Poem About The Pain Of A Break Up

    There's a pain in my heart that I'm feeling today,
    for the love of my life feels further each day.

    The sorrow is so much and the pain is so deep.
    I've hurt her again' I can't even sleep.

    But I now know the problem, the curse of our love.
    It was buried inside me, with no sight from above.

    And now that I see it, I force it away.
    Yet I fear that I've lost her, nevermore can I say

    that I love her so deeply and regret all the pain,
    and I know it's my fault; no one else can I blame.

    And I search for an answer, somewhere above
    and hope she'll forgive me and remember our love.

    For I can't live without her and could never move on,
    for how can one live when what they live for is gone?

    Walls are closing around me; I sink slowly each day,
    yet I cling to a hope that seems far away

    that she will return to me and feel my embrace.
    I miss her so badly and the beauty of her face

    as she slept there beside me, never knowing the truth,
    that I would smile there beside her, and be thankful for the proof

    that someone does care, for I have known this angel,
    and I'd softly kiss her cheek, the moment so blissful.

    And I'd hold her all night and feel so at peace,
    yet I never told her these things; now I watch as she flees.

    But I know she remembers it, the love that I gave,
    and I hope she can forgive me, the cause of her pain.

    For like an angel from heaven, she came into my life.
    Now I plead one last time, for one last chance to make it right.

    Yet I fear it won't heal; how I've ripped us apart,
    but I must let her know what's inside this broken heart.

    That I love her so much and I've made a mistake,
    and I hope she won't leave because it's my heart she will take.

    We were in love for so long; I know she remembers.
    It started three years ago that night in September.

    I will never forget how I felt that cold night;
    my breath taken away by the beauty of her sight.

    I write these words now with tears in my eyes,
    for I love her so much; I sit and I die.

    I'm so lost without her, don't want her to go,
    not without me saying what I need her to know.

    That I've always loved her and miss her each day,
    yet the hope that she loves me drifts further away.

    I just want her to know how I truly feel,
    and to know that my words are nothing but real.

    And it doesn't take a special time to make a new start;
    it takes only desire and true love from the heart.

  9. 7. Tonight I Can Write The Saddest Lines

    This poem was published in 1924, just as Pablo Neruda entered his 20s. In this poem, the speaker is dealing with the end of a relationship and longing for the woman to be back in his arms. The repetition of, “Tonight I can write the saddest lines,” brings the reader’s attention to that theme throughout this sad love poem. Pablo Neruda used alliteration throughout this poem with many words beginning with “s” (saddest, shattered, stars, sky, soul, etc.).

    Tonight I can write the saddest lines.

    Write, for example, 'The night is shattered
    and the blue stars shiver in the distance.'

    The night wind revolves in the sky and sings.

    Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
    I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.

    Through nights like this one I held her in my arms
    I kissed her again and again under the endless sky.

    She loved me sometimes, and I loved her too.
    How could one not have loved her great still eyes.

    Tonight I can write the saddest lines.
    To think that I do not have her. To feel that I have lost her.

    To hear the immense night, still more immense without her.
    And the verse falls to the soul like dew to the pasture.

    What does it matter that my love could not keep her.
    The night is shattered and she is not with me.

    This is all. In the distance someone is singing. In the distance.
    My soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.

    My sight searches for her as though to go to her.
    My heart looks for her, and she is not with me.

    The same night whitening the same trees.
    We, of that time, are no longer the same.

    I no longer love her, that's certain, but how I loved her.
    My voice tried to find the wind to touch her hearing.

    Another's. She will be another's. Like my kisses before.
    Her voice. Her bright body. Her infinite eyes.

    I no longer love her, that's certain, but maybe I love her.
    Love is so short, forgetting is so long.

    Because through nights like this one I held her in my arms
    my soul is not satisfied that it has lost her.

    Though this be the last pain that she makes me suffer
    and these the last verses that I write for her.

  10. 8. Last Goodbye

    • By Dorsa Saa
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2010

    I sit here waiting
    Waiting for you to see
    That time is running out
    Come on and save me

    It's not your fault I'm crying
    So don't you think that at all
    Don't feel guilty for something you didn't do
    Just hug me and don't let me fall

    Your arms are so soft and cozy
    The look in your eyes, I can't forget
    I wish you didn't have to leave
    But I know the date is set

    I let the tears fall down my face
    But you tell me not to cry
    And that everything will be fine
    I know it's all a lie

    I know you can't stand it either
    That we'll be so far apart
    And sleep all alone each night
    Yet I know we'll still be together in the heart

    You give me one last kiss and hug
    And wipe a single tear
    Wish me luck and say goodbye
    For its the last one I'll hear

  11. 9. 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.

  12. 10. 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. 11. I Wanted To Go With You

    • By Norma Clay McCoy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2007

    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.

  14. 12. 700 Miles From My Heart

    • By Sirenity K. Ball
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2018

    Distance is only a number, but love is infinite. Sadness is only a moment, but love is a lifetime. I tell myself that a lot. I met a guy, and we had great chemistry. We understood each other and got along instantly, but I had to go away, and my heart shattered quickly. He hugged me goodbye and he was burned into my memory.

    Don't Forget Me

    In my dreams you're right by me
    Sleeping through the night beside me,
    And when I wake up and it's a dream,
    I don't have any tears left to comfort me.

    I've locked my heart away
    And I've dreamed about the day
    I'm carelessly walking someplace
    And run into someone just to see your face.

    But my heart is broken.
    It's been effortlessly stolen,
    And I hope you will forever be holding it,
    Fixing the crooked pieces that were bent.

    Because the last time I hugged you,
    You held me tight,
    Loved me as I cried,
    And said it would be all right.

    Because time is just a number
    And sorrow isn't forever,
    And I promise I will always remember
    All the good times we have had together.

    Because I love you more than words can say
    As all my old infatuations fade away.
    I wish I could look into the future and see our fate.
    Maybe then I could calm my heart rate.

    And I think of you every day.
    There isn't a day that I don't picture your face.
    I cry every time it rains
    Because I picture our first date.

    And I miss the way you laugh
    Because it brings me joy whenever I'm sad,
    And if I'm with you, life has dealt me a good hand
    Because only with you do I realize what I have.

    I have a guy who makes me laugh
    Who truly cares if I'm sad,
    Who makes me smile when I'm mad,
    And listens to me when I rant.

    So between now and then,
    Please don't forget who I am
    Because it has been said
    You can forgive but never forget.

    So please don't forget my face
    Or how when I'm nervous I pace.
    And think of me whenever it rains
    So that when we meet again we will be in the same place.

    We will be in love without a care
    Because what we had is rare.
    You're exactly perfect down to every hair.
    Even if there was an error, I would never care.

    I love you!

  15. 13. Angel Of Mercy

    • By Amber
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2008

    Sometimes what you want is standing right in front of you, and you realize it too late.

    She Longs To Tell Him I Love You

    A small spark kindles in eager young hearts
    With a smile, a song, and a destiny
    Their souls a perfect match from the start
    How sad she was blind to her eternity
    She spent many years wasted in searching
    Looking for true love with other men
    Always believing their love was abiding
    Only to have her heart broken again
    Angel of Mercy, comfort her tonight
    Show her what's wrong and what's right
    He adores her heart, he loves her soul
    Angel of Mercy, wrap her in your love
    Teach her how to let go
    All these years the spark still survives
    A small ember in ashes of the past
    One look into his eyes and her truth arrives
    Her true love she recognizes at last
    Spark to flame, flame to inferno
    All in one look, in one breath
    How she missed it before, she will never know
    But now she knows she is his to her death
    Angel of Mercy, comfort her tonight
    Show her what's wrong and what's right
    He adores her heart, he loves her soul
    Angel of Mercy, wrap her in your love
    Teach her how to let go
    She longs to tell him 'I love you'
    And turns with her arms open wide
    Where once he stood, so solid and true
    Now only emptiness and darkness reside
    She cries out his name in pure desperation
    Her soul weeps 'Where has he gone?'
    The universe answers with a sad intonation
    'I'm so sorry. You simply waited too long.'
    Angel of Mercy, comfort her tonight
    Show her what's wrong and what's right
    He broke her heart, she lost her soul
    Angel of Mercy, wrap her in your love
    Please teach her to let him go.

  16. 14. 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.

  17. 15. The Bench

    I wrote this poem a few months back after my partner and I split up...the bench was where we got engaged.

    Poem Remembering A Lost Love

    Sitting alone
    On a bench that's made for two,
    Only one side is empty,
    For that place is meant for you.
    As I look out
    Onto the beautiful seashore,
    Memories overtake me
    And wishes of making more.
    Do you remember this special place?
    And the moments we had here?
    You made my life that day,
    And that I will always hold near.
    I find myself walking,
    Not knowing where to go,
    But I always end up
    In that special place that we know.
    I sit down, can't move,
    Waiting for you to show,
    And when I feel your hand on mine,
    That's when I will go.
    Do you see, my darling,
    That this bench was made for two,
    And one day in the future,
    It will be filled again by me and you.

  18. 16. My Memories

    • By Graham Chaplin
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2016

    This poem is about the loss of a girl I loved so very much when I was young. Sadly, I let her slip away because I could not believe that I was worthy of her. Now many years later, I feel that I must pay tribute to that love.

    Wanting One More Day With You

    My memories are sacred of the you I used to know.
    I remember all the places where you and I would go.

    Time has made me older, and life has made me old.
    My bones are thin and brittle; my body feels the cold.

    Days when I was younger and warmer in the sun,
    Days when you were with me, I was the chosen one.

    Years went rolling past us, but I lost you along the way.
    I would give all my tomorrows for just one yesterday.

  19. 17. Missing Piece In Life

    Missing a piece you can never take back...

    I've lost a piece and it's impossible to bring it back.
    I was too careless. I was too slack.
    I spent so much time thinking about this and that.
    I was indecisive and that's a fact.

    Such a coward to take the risk.
    So scared to get out of my league.
    Time is fast and before I knew it,
    my piece has already taken a leap.

    I've lost a piece and it's almost impairing.
    The pain is striking, and inside I am grieving.
    Silently I weep to conceal that I'm hurting.
    For how long...I don't know, but in sadness I am sinking.

  20. 18. 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.

  21. 19. The Pain Inside

    This is a story about a girl I met and kept running into until I asked her out. We had a great night doing nothing in particular, just looking at the stars. It was one of the best nights, and nothing came of it.

    Poem About Love That Got Away

    I saw the stars that shine
    When I looked into your eyes.
    I felt the pain inside
    When your head was next to mine.
    Come tomorrow I'll be able
    To love you in your dreams,
    So when you're next to him
    I hope you'll think of me.
    Will you remember the pleasure
    When you look upon the stars?
    Go back to the night
    You laid your head upon my heart.
    Tell your kids a story
    Of a love that couldn't be,
    And I'll tell mine a tale
    Of what you meant to me.

  22. 20. It Is Gone

    • By Phlicia Upshaw
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008

    This poem is about how you think you're in love then it quickly vanishes.

    The way I used to smile,
    and love our favorite song
    The way it felt so right
    and now today it feels so wrong
    Today it is much harder
    for me to carry on
    acceptance
    Knowing it will never work out
    between us
    Leaving the past and focus on the future
    Whatever happened to the days when we were in love
    Inseparable
    Because we were so strong?
    And now it is gone
