About the Poem
This poem was written after my first true love vanished from my life and left me no contact to his whereabouts. It took me nearly 3 long years to get over the pain and suffering I endured, but the saying "Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all." still remains a constant in my life, and I would sooner love him again and endure the past all over than to go through life never having felt his warmth in my heart.
|There was a time - not so long ago,
When I felt that I had reached the end.
It was the day you vanished, and
You left such a gap that I could not mend.
I was a mess, my heart was torn,
For days, years, no one would do.
Healing that gap took some time,
As hard as I tried, I still longed for you.
We'd shared so much in so little time,
You were the older brother I never had,
But all too late I realized the facts,
In shining armor you were clad.
Some time along the trip we took,
My heart melted and opened to you.
I didn't know it then, I was blind,
But now that you are gone, I know it is true.
It took time to heal the wounds you made,
And open up those closed doors,
But no matter who I may love now,
A piece of my heart will be forever yours.
