About the Poem

Sometimes we cannot always be where our heart longs to be. Yet if we have shared our heart with the person we love and they have shared with us then that part always remains, no matter the circumstances. If there is someone you love and can't be with them, find yourself in this poem. And by touching yourself, you will touch them.

I love this poem. It tells me and others how we should act and how are love ones and ones that were onced loved are still apart of us in a way that is secret to you, not others. It tells me instead of getting hotheaded at the the time of breakup just ask for him to always remember me in a way that is good

I loved your poem it really touched three months ago me and my bf of 7 months broke up and i am still bealing with the pain. Mostly because he recently told me he had a new gf and i am really upset about it, because i still love him and want him back. I was hoping that in a couple of months we could try again but now the realization that it might not happen hurts a whole lot. I am thinking about telling him but i don't know yet. I hope you keep on writing your poems have a way of touching people's souls.

Touch Yourself And You Touch Me

I understand the why
Yet I cannot grasp the how;
But if this is the way you must handle us
I will try to understand somehow.

There is one thing that I ask
As you walk away;
Please create a corner in your heart for me
So at least, there, I can always stay.

You will always be my love
That will never change;
Though we are going separate ways
That fact remains the same.

I know we must let each other go
Circumstances force us to set each other free;
But today, I give back to you . . . your words -
Touch Yourself and You Touch Me.

My fiance and I just broke up. I printed this poem and gave it to him today. It said along with the poem that it came from the heart and to be quite honest this poem is perfect. I didn't find one that was better than this one. I can feel the pain and pride behind this poem. Whoever wrote this poem felt at one point exactly the way I do right now. Thank you for writing such a wonderful poem.
