Lost Love Poems

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.

    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.
