About the Poem

This poem is about the sorrow felt from a loss, along with a "Thank you" to the special person who helped to endure that sad time - a true friend.

Forget Me Not

I tried to be strong when you broke my heart...
I did not cry, yet now I do; for we're far apart.
You told me you loved me - so sweet and sincere...
You made me so happy, I had nothing to fear.
As time went by, what we had flourished and spread...
All was unspoken, no words needed to be said.
And then came a day, when something went wrong...
All I knew I could do was hold on and be strong.
It was so sudden; you gave no reason of why...
I felt so numb and empty inside; I just wanted to die.
Sadness consumed me, yet I fought to stay whole...
I took so much for granted, and this was my toll.
Blinded by confusion, I felt so lost and helpless...
And then there was you, someone so kind and so selfless.
My one true friend - I give you thanks for all you have done.
You mean the world to me; you're my moon, my stars, and my sun.
And once again I have lost another friend;
All I can do is wish that we'll soon meet again.
I hope that I'll meet with all who I love,
In that great place called Heaven, right up above.

Thanks for this poem. I've underwent a lost love and some of the lines applied to me and my lost love (and I will NOT drink red wine regardless of Ali Campbell's 1983 hit 'Red Red Wine')
To all the people who commented, I very much appreciate all the positive feedback! I wrote this poem nearly 8 years ago (WOW!), and I've occasionally come back to read the comments. I'm excited to say that I am in the process of getting my own personal webpage up where I will posting poems I've written over the years. When it is complete I will provide a link so that if anyone is interested you may take a gander at that :) Cheers and thank you again to everyone who has posted a comment!
May be you love that person deeply for you to write those hard words. I'm happy to know that I'm not the only one to suffer a lot in that cruel world where love play with you. Perhaps we'll meet in that place named HEAVEN.
