About the Poem

This poem was written after spending time with Mike learning and exploring each other and the love we share. I never realized how much he truly was a part of me until we had to say goodbye. It was only for a little while, but that didn't make the pain of our time apart any less.

We have been in this long distance relationship since October of 1997, and we have had a chance to spend a lot of magical time together. However, each time we have to say goodbye, it breaks my heart in two. Even though I know we'll be together soon, I can't help but feel completely lost without him. Each time I watch him walk away from me to board the plane, my heart shatters into a million pieces and I realize I will never be whole or complete until we meet again.

Come Back To Me

I suddenly feel so sad and alone
You've carved your name in my heart
We've just said hello and goodbye again
I can feel the teardrops start
You're gone - not forever - but gone just the same
All those long lonely miles away
Can't wait 'til you come back to me
Forever and ever to stay

I met my boyfriend on the internet, We fell so inlove, 5 months later , he came to visit me, everything was so great and perfect, we where finaly together, and then suddenly he had to go back home, and now its like my heart is broken. i miss him so much =(
this poem has to do exactly what is happening to me and it got me thinking too because I haven't chatted with the person I like in days.
Hello Shirley, your poem touched my heart since I'm in the same situation, I send you many greetings from Vienna (Austria), Bea
It's a sad poem, but I liked it.
I know just how you feel. I have met the most wonderful man online and we are so alike, but we both are married. We have spent time together on several occasions and the goodbyes are pure hell. So girl, I feel your pain.
Your poem was wonderful and expressed exactly how I felt everytime Danny and I said goodbye and he went home. We have come a long ways since then. We are engaged and I moved to Columbus to be with him. We are not children He is 54 and I am 45 but feel like teenagers again I would love to put this on my website I would give you the proper credit Thank you
I thought it was absolutely beautiful.
I LOVE this poem. I can feel my heart breaking with hers. She put into words so well that bittersweet feeling of saying goodbye for a while.
