What does blue stand for in the poem?

“Why a Heart Turns Blue”

I have lost the bridge to love you forever:
My body is numb to feel the fever
Of lips and fingertips that used to quiver
At every touch that learned to linger
Upon my lips that only your name can whisper.

For years I kept the tenderness only for you,
Even though your love notes and the sunsets knew
That your fickle heart was carrying someone new
And the love you promised could never be true-
First time I knew why a heart turns to blue. ###
