Losing someone you love can be painful and frustrating — especially when you know that you can never have her back because you both went separate ways and there was no turning back.
It would be like waking up to reality and finding you’re on your own, that you won’t get to see her lovely smile or hear the sound of her voice that gives you comfort.
Often, you would write the words of love but you can also write about the sadness that came from a beautiful love that was long ago, just like this poem from our collection at 1Love Poems.
It was not so long ago
when I thought I’d never meet someone like you.
Wrong was I, thinking I’m in control
Believing I’d never fall.
All my life I thought no one would
melt a heart like mine, a heart so cold,
a heart hardened by the past,
protected by shields so vast.
Slowly I was falling
without even knowing.
Only to find out too late
I have no choice but to accept my fate.
I could dream, I suppose
forever, I could hope
there will never be any ‘us’, that’s our destiny
so I wake up to reality.
I lied when I said
I didn’t love you,
that my feelings for you
not because I wanted to
but because I love you
and I still do.
I wouldn’t do a thing to hurt you
but I just have to let go.
I can’t hold on much longer
‘coz for us there’s no forever.
