I Will Miss You

I thought before I first saw you,
I knew what love was.
That, I later found, to be false.
You showed me the meaning of True love.

I loved you with all my heart,
I gave you everything I had to give.
I thought our loved would last a lifetime,
I was the only one, though,

You already knew it wouldn't be forever.
You tried to tell me.
I always chose not to listen.
I only heard what my heart was telling me.

If I could go back in time and change things,
I wouldn't. I always want the memories
of you and I together, the way we were -
Happy for the most part.

I love you still,
And I always will.
But today my life starts over,
Starts over without you.

This will be a tough journey for me,
But I know I will make it.

Life does go on.

I sent this poem to my ex 6 years ago when our divorce was finalized. I was just going through some files and found a copy that I saved. It is still as powerful and poignant today as it was then. Re-reading it brought back a flood of emotions. Great poem!

This poem reminds me of a relationship that I was in for over 10 months. It was hard though on both of us cause my parents didn't approve of him...We tried sooo hard...and for soo long...then one day when we were able to call eachother and things...we did something stibed and now my parents want me to have no contact with him...We still talk as much as possible...but it's hard..I and his mom have grown closer and closer everyday and she's on our side...we just have to wait till the day comes when my parents give in...when I read this I wanted to cry...it reminds me so much of the one I love.
