About the Poem

Like many other people, I fell in love with someone I thought I'd be with for a long time. He hurt me so much, I wanted to die. Then, Josh came along and showed me what it was like to love again. This is a poem saying goodbye.

this poem touched me so much! you're right. saying goodbye to someone you loved is so hard. you cant do anything but to let him go! it really hurts. . time comes it heals. nice one girl!^_^
Wow! This is such a beautiful poem. I can relate to it because I'm in the process of letting go of the "haunting memory" of my recently exboyfriend. I love him, but I've realized that the best way to get over him, is to simply LET GO.

I look into your eyes, your heart, your soul -
Were you really loving me or lying?
My love goes deeper than I ever imagined it could
or even would.

Love is a part of life, I know.
So is the pain and the sorrow,
along with the smiles, and the joys.
My life will be forever changed
because I loved you.

It seemed as though my world was falling apart,
along with my heart.
No longer will I let your memory hurt me.
I will move on with my life,
no longer letting you be a part of me.
