About the Poem

This poem is about a love that I once held, that I wish I held right now. It describes how painful it is to lose a loved one and how lonely it gets without them. Hopefully this poem will change the hearts of a few and the love I myself lost.

All I Can Ask For

I'm here waiting
Impatiently, eyes full of tears,
The other day you said you loved me
You said it perfectly clear.

Now, today's a new day
And you're not here by my side,
Now everything you told me
Just feels like pain and lies.

You said you would be here forever
Was that just a lie, too?
You made promises you couldn't keep
I had all my faith in you.

You took off with my heart
And life inside your hands,
I'm left empty and incomplete
Why can't you understand.

You let me down
When my hopes were high,
I try to smile
But I always sigh.

I'm left alone
With all this pain and misery,
Your love is all I ask for
Why can't you see.

You loved me for who I was
Not for who I tried to be,
You were the best thing that ever happen to me
You'll always be inside of me.

We've been through too much
For you to push me away,
I'll always love you no matter what
It will never fade away.

That was really touching I give you a13
every word your poem had, i felt that way so i printed it out to give it to someone that made me feel exactly like your poem had said
I can definately understand where this poem is coming from and going, but instead of only being a "boyfriend" it was a fiance who has now left me and I think fled. My heart goes out to all you young women who have been or are broken hearted. While it doesnt seem like it now, I know there has to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Great Poem
great poem
i really like this poem. i fell for my best friend and then he just forgot about me when he found out. i was really upset. keep up the good work
this reminds me of all the poems i'v written for a love i lost, but the problem is that now he's my best friend and i cant tell him i still love him and that i wish things were the way we had them when we met.
that was short and sweet, but it was so sad

OMG this poem was so sad, but really good!.kind of reminds me of how this guy i was dating all of the sudden told me he didnt want a relationship:'( after all we went through.we went out b4 and i sort of hurt him, so he said he couldnt trust me again.but it was a little late to tell me that, we were already involved!
I could really relate to this poem. I fell in love with one of my friends, and after letting him know he confessed to feeling the same. I haven't heard from him since.
