I’d Go Back If I Could

After we broke up I lost track of you. Sometimes I wonder where you are or what you’re doing. Did you move away? Settle down? Are you happy? Are you in love? Do you have children? It’s been ten years and still I have thoughts of you. Do you still think of me? J.B.

I wonder do you think of me
And remember the park
Where you struck the spark
To a fire that’s still burning
… in my heart.
I can tell you that I’ve never
Felt like that since.
I don’t know if you would
But I’d go back if I could.
Keith Whitley

Still Loud Days Later

Bumping into you was completely unexpected. It’s been years since I last saw you. With “how are you’s” and small talk my love for you began shouting in my heart again. The volume of that voice in my heart is still loud days later. I love you. I always will. I miss you so. A.O.

Our eyes crossed
my voice was lost
Her smile
destroyed my soul.
Words were broken
thoughts were woken
Why must
she torment me so.
From “Her smile destroyed my soul” by Peter Wetzel

Once You Loved Me

Regularly I read or hear you are doing well and your career continues to blossom. I am so proud of you and grateful once you loved me and I called you mine. Becoming a rock star was your dream. Mine was to be with you. Glad yours came true. Sad mine did not. S.W.

If you listen to the wind very carefully,
you’ll be able to hear me
whisper my love for you.
Andrew Davidson

Your Love In Everything

Accepting life will expire for someone loved never completely comes even after they’re gone. Sometimes I forget for a moment and expect to run into you just around the corner. You’re still with me but I miss your voice, your touch, the way you looked at me and lots more. C.S.

I’ll catch your smile on someone’s face,
Your whisper in the wind’s embrace
Through diamond stars and songs and dreams
I find your love in everything

The sun, the sky, the rolling sea
All conspire to comfort me.
From sorrow’s edge life’s beauty seems
To find your love in everything.

I’ve come to trust the hope it brings
To find your love in everything.
Even as I fall apart,
Even through my shattered heart,
I’ll catch your smile on someone’s face
…..amazing grace.

Beth Neilsen Chapman

Silence Breaks the Heart

You don’t answer your phone when I call and ignore my texts. When I run into you by chance you look away and won’t speak to me. I know what I did was wrong, but there’s a lot you don’t know. Please talk to me and listen to what I have to say. I love you and I’m sorry. A.N.

Sticks and stones are hard on bones
Aimed with angry art,
Words can sting like anything
But silence breaks the heart.
Phyllis McGinley

A Yearning Comes Over Me

Some days I’m fine and on others just OK. Then there are days when I’m reminded of you like seeing a couple in love, a song, a movie, a place, or something someone says.  Then a yearning comes over me and I’m reminded how deeply I am still in love with you. C.B.

when one person is missing,
the whole world seems depopulated.

A Heart Around Your Name

No longer do I know where you are. Your phone number changed. You’ve moved far away with no forwarding address. No one I ask is aware of where you ended up. I date others and go out with friends, but my heart is still yours. Wherever you are, I love you, always. S.S.

I think of you in Silence.
I often speak your name.
All I have left are memories
and a heart around your name.
My heart aches with sadness
and all my tears flow.
What it meant to lose you
no-one will ever know.
