A man writes a letter to his lost love.

I got my heart broke today,
Not that it matters, I know it don’t,
For you life goes on,
But for me it won’t,
Everyday I wonder what I did wrong.
I handed you my heart,
It was yours to keep,
But then you said we had to part
The pain I felt; it cut oh so very deep.
Now I wish I could wash the pain away,
Because I hurt so bad inside,
I can only hope I’ll die today,
But we both know I won’t no matter how hard I try.
My love is the only thing I had to give,
But you laughed at me,
Now I don’t want to live,
With only memories.
So tonight I’ll close my eyes,
With thoughts of you,
As I say good-bye,
To the only love I knew.
Now all you have left is your tears,
And the pain you handed me,
And you’ll wonder why you have to face your fears,
Because that’s the way it was meant to be
So now I leave you,
With a scrapbook of memories,
Of the times we knew,
And this letter from a broken heart.

    The first line in this poem and the last line say it all, everything in between is mere detail.

    Aw, this is such a sad but such a beautiful poem especially “scrapbook of memories” is so true when it comes to losing a loved one no matter whether its a lover or a friend or a relative. Beautiful but so sad! It’s such an emotional poem, this!
