About the Poem

I wrote this after my boyfriend and I broke up after dating for more than a year. I just kept crying over how it ended so I wrote this one day and gave it to one of my friends who asked why I was crying. It went around the school, and finally my ex- boyfriend got it and he ended up asking me back. He gave it back to me and I decided to submit it so people know that you can change the course of fate with a few words.

That poem did really touch my heart and i know how you felt, as i am feeling it now. My boyfriend and i broke up and i loved him so very much but i am now with someone new but inside me i still feel empty and alone, like someting is missing and not going to come back. I cry alot just wishing that maybe we could give it another try, because ever since we parted i always feel down and miserable! but well done on a brilliant poem that hit me deep in my heart.

Why Am I Crying?

The grass is billowing by the steed.
The night is so very clear.
all I really, really need.
is to know that you are there.

The moon is shining brilliantly white.
the stars are twinkling everywhere.
so why am I crying on this beautiful night?
I am crying because you are not there.

I really loved your poem. That is the way that I feel right now. Me and my boyfriend broke-up but, I still love him and want him back. I know what it's like to cry because you can't have them with you.
