The Loss and Pain of a Loved One

When you lose someone that is a friend or family member,
It is really hard on your id you were close,
Even if you didn't know them it still hits home,
Because someone in your life died.

With each death that happens it makes you realize,
Life is short and live it to the fullest,
And tell the people you know that you love them,
Because tomorrow might be too late.

If you missed your chance ther's no need to worry,
Because you will see them in the afterlife,
And you can tell them then that you love them,
Since you are going to be with them in the afterlife.

But with every death there is a time to morn,
And each person needs a different amount of time,
To morn the loss either of a friend or family member,
That's why it's always great to have people that care.

Whether they are friends or family,
It doesn't matter as long as they are with you,
If not physically, mentally works just as well,
Because they are with you in your time of need.

When people get mad they say things they don't mean,
But sometimes what they say can hurt,
People need to realize whether you mean them or not,
They still hurt and can affect the relationship.

Certian words are ok when the person is joking,
But when the words are spoken in anger, it hurts,
Because you don't know if the person is serious or not,
And that is a horrible feeling to the person you love.

Watch what you say to the one you love,
Because words are painfull and don't make you feel good,
Since they stab you in the heart and slice it up in pieces,
And it takes that person's heart a long time to heal.

There is nothing you can do to fix it,
Time is the only thing that will heal it,
But that will take a while to heal completely, if at all,
And one it heals, can you look at the other person in the same way again?

For fear that they may do it again and again,
Because once they have done it, it can happen again,
You love the person, but wonder what the future will bring,
Can you forgive them and move on? Or should you leave them?

It is best to leave them so you don't have that fear,
And forgiving them is out of the question.

Breaking it off with my boyfriend was hard to do,
Because of how much it hurt him,
Frankly it had to be done since I am happier,
Now, then when I was with him.

I am sure he will find someone else,
Because I am through with him,
I need to do something with my life,
And I couldn't do that when I was with him.

I have my freedom, and my best friend back,
Who needs anything else like a boyfriend now?
Definately not me, I want to remain single,
But eventually I will date again.

There are so many things I want to do,
Like travel and see the people that I've been talking to,
Get to see the world like I want,
And maybe settle down again sometime.

Everyone thinks I made the right decision,
I also think so too, because I am really happy,
And I wasn't happy when I was with him anymore,
So I followed my heart and let him go.

The Importance of Friends

Everyone has to have friends no matter where they are,
As long as you can talk to them about anything,
That makes you feel happy knowing that they care,
And when you're happy everyone else is happy too.

A lot of people don't know how lucky they are,
To have friends that are there for them,
When ever they need them or just to talk,
Because that is what true friends are there for.

Some people aren't as lucky to hae great friends,
But that is because they don't treat them nicely,
And if you mistreat your friends they will mistreat you,
And that doesn't make friendships last very long.

Be nice to the people you care about,
And they will be nice to you in return,
Always follow the golden rule,
Because it has a way of hurting you if you don't.

Friends or Maybe More

Friends are great to have in your life,
Especially when you like them a bit more then friends,
There has to be a way to let them know you like them
But finding that way will be quite difficult.

When you like someone more then friends,
You find it diffucult to tell them,
How you feel towards them and if they feel the same way,
But if they don't then you would feel really awkward.

Since you opened up your heart to let them in,
But they shut it tight with out entering keeping it empty,
And an empty heart is something that doesn't feel good,
Knowing that they shut you down making it hurt.

And sometimes they can let you in and you let them in,
Making youselves one and you are a couple,
You can do all the things that couples do,
And be together and hopefully spend your lives together.

Im first going to start out saying that I didnt write this poem. I have a friend out of state that wrote it for me when I turned 20.

The Love of Christ

I want to show you nature's magnificent grandeur,
The beauty of the trees, the power of the oceans,
Would be yours to revel and enjoy.
I would help you to see how beautiful you are,
Created with the utmost care and affection.

I want to listen to your speak of your day,
For the sound of your voice warms my heart.
I would rejoice with you when days are good,
And comfort you when all is gray.

I want to be your guardian, to shield you from danger,
Longing to hold you close through the bitter nights,
My arms protecting you from the icy void.
In the mightiest storm, when piercing ran blinds all hope,
Not a single droplet would ever fall upon you,
I want to be your sure foundation,
Neer wavering in times when strenght is gone.

Finally, I want to set you apart,
To make your place in my heart uniquely special,
Pure and sacred, untouched by the world.

All these things are desired by the spirit,
And as such will never change, never fade away.

Lonely Heart

Wishing that I had someone to love,
Is how I feel right now,
Because everyone I know has someone,
And it makes me wonder if I ever will.

I know I will find someone again,
But I wonder how soon or how long it will be,
At times I want to cry and other times I am happy,
But mostly it has been tears not laughter.

And I wonder when ever that will be,
Because being all alone stinks,
I dont know if it's me or something about me,
That turns guys away from me.

I am such a loveable, kind, caring, sweet person,
So guys that cannot see that are blind,
And it is their loss because of the kind of person I am,
But what don't guys see in me??

I guess they are afraid, shy or nervous,
But what ever it is, it's driving me crazy,
I do know that they will snap out of it one day,
And eventuallly ask me to be more then friends.

Gone Before Goodbye

No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.

If tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven,
And bring you back again.

Since I cannot climb to heaven,
I get on my knees and pray,
Hoping that God takes my life too,
So that I can be with you one day.

When you left there wasn't a dry eye,
Because we didn't want to part,
Now that you are gone for good,
There is an empty space in my heart.

No one can take that empty space,
Because that belonged to you, my love,
Having you in my life was a treasure,
And I know you're watching me from above.

Since you're gone I try to stay strong,
But at night there were times I cried,
Because I never did get the chance,
To say goodbye, no matter how hard I tried.

Life's Destiny

Being alone is horrible enough as it is,
But adding depression on top of it makes it worse,
Knowing that there isn't anything that can be done,
To bring you out of your lonely and depressive state.

Having friends to talk to helps but it only does so much,
The rest of the battle is to be fought alone,
It can be a hard battle to win, but it's possible,
Because you know that it's just a part of life.

If life was a game that you could win,
There would be no point to living,
Life isn't an easy thing, but we all have to deal with it,
Because we know that it gets better as time goes on.

Don't worry about the future, just live one day at a time,
Because God has plans for everyone,
Which he only knows what they are,
And he will help guide you down the proper path.

But every path isn't perfectly straight,
There are ups and downs, twists and turns,
And some are harder to overcome,
Which is the path of life, never straight or perfect.

Untitled (gotta hate those)

Wanting someone to call my own,
To love and hold and spend time with,
Is really difficult for someone like me,
Because I'll doubt if I will ever love again.

The person I thought I loved,
Hurt me in a way no one else knows,
And I am afraid that someone else,
Will do the same things that he did.

I am sure that there is someone out there for me,
But I haven't found him yet,
Which makes me think there isn't anyone,
Because I am single and haven't dated anyone yet.

I know it's not me it has to be them,
Since I am not shy, I am talkative,
And I have such a big heart which is a plus,
Because I think of others before myself.

That should count for a lot of things,
But sometimes I wonder if it does,
Since I am alone and hoping for someone,
To come back into my life to love me for being me.

I would love them for who they are,
But I don't have anyone to love,
Right now because no one knows,
Who I am or what I am about.

Lonely But Loving

Life is very depressing when you're all alone,
Because you have no one to love,
And it hurts when you have a lot of love to give,
But no one to give it too.

Seeing other people together makes you cry,
And also makes you feel really blue,
Knowing that you don't have anyone to be with,
To hug and kiss when ever you want.

But there is one thing that you shouldn't do,
And that is never give up there are others,
Many will come and go, but one will stay,
And that one will be the one that you will love forever.

That one will be by your side throughout life,
And never leave you, no matter what,
Even if they do some stupid things,
You know that you can forgive them.

Lonely Without You

I want to say how you make me feel,
But I don't know where to begin,
I love to be around you and also in your arms,
Because that is where I feel safe.

When we are apart, I feel lonely and scared,
Because I am not in your protective arms,
There is nothing I can do but wait,
Until I can be in your arms once again.

I love you and I don't want to let you go,
Because I feel we were ment to be together,
I know you feel the same way about me,
But aren't quite ready to be in a relationship.

And that is something that is understandable,
Since I feel the same way due to a bad break-up,
When it's time to get back in the dating scene,
I hope you will be too, so you can give me a chance.

It will be something you won't regret,
Because of the kind of person I am,
A loving, caring, kind, big hearted angel,
That will remail with you forever and always.

Untitled ( yet another one)

I love being with you and being in your arms,
Because it lets me know that you care about me,
And I care about you just as much or maybe more,
Because I have a lot of love to give.

There isn't anyone else like me in this world,
So snatch me up while I am available,
Because I know you won't regret anything,
Since we have known each other for a while.

It's best to take it slow and not rush anything,
Because that way you can get to know the real person,
Not just inside, but outside as well,
So you an decide on what to do with your life.

Whether you want to spend your life alone,
Or whether you want to spend your life with someone,
It's the decision that you have to make,
And I won't make the decision for you.

When you make that decision,
I hope it will be the right one,
Because I want to spend my life with you,
And I hope you feel the same way.

Looking For Something More

Friendship with a guy is a great thing,
Because you can have a great time,
Just hanging out or doing other activities,
But all in all, it's great just being with him.

I love looking into his dark brown mysterious eyes,
Since they just make my heart stop,
I think I have fallen in love with him,
But I am not too sure since it's way to early.

I cannot stop myself from thinking about him,
Or dreaming about him at night,
I know my life is just starting,
But it has come to a sudden stop.

Since I have been with him lately,
I do know that I'm going to take it slow,
And not rush into anything with him,
Because being friends is a great place to start.

A lot of relationships have begun as friends,
Which there isn't anything wrong with that,
Because it is the right thing to do,
And you can know the person inside and out.

Feeling the Weight of the World

Life has a way of getting you down,
And not letting you pick yourself back up,
There is nothing you can do to pick yourself up,
Because you feel like the whole world is on your shoulders.

That weight keeps pushing you down,
And bringing you down with it,
You want to pick yourself back up,
But you are unable to because you can't get up.

The weight of the world keeps adding up,
And making everything dark, dull and grey,
Nothing can get through to brighten your day,
Or to put a smile back upon your face.

Not even a caring friend can help you this time,
Because the darkness is so thick,
You allow yourself to cry because you're all alone,
And no one is there to comfort you.

You cannot hold in your sadness anymore,
So you allow yourself to cry,
To let it all out so it's not building up inside,
Making you feel just a little bit better.

Being Hurt Again

Meeting you was something I enjoyed,
And I hope we can get together again,
Because I am starting to like you,
And I get the feeling you're starting to like me too.

There is something about you that I like,
And I haven't figured it out yet,
But giveme time to get to know you,
Because I thought you were sweet.

I know you think I am sweet,
And I can be if you get on my good side,
But if you get on my bad side, it won't be pretty,
So be nice to me and try not stay on my good side.

To get on my bad side, well that takes time,
First, if you don't return my calls, that's one strike,
Second, if you don't call me at all, that's two strikes,
But in order to get the third strike, well that takes work.

Like keeping me on the phone for hours,
Or getting mad at me for the stupidest things,
Those are just a few examples to get the third strike,
And once you get the third strike, YOU'RE OUT!!!

When you've put up with all you can,
And you can't take anymore without bursting,
You end up exploding at people who don't deserve it,
And it makes you feel really upset and depressed.

Things like that make you want to leave,
But you can't because you can't drive,
Which really sucks because you need a break,
From your family and from your house.

You don't have anywhere to run to get away,
Even though you are begging to get out,
You feel trapped inside and you can't get free,
No matter how hard you try to free yourself.

You try calling a few friends, but get no answer,
So your stuck moping and being extremely lazy,
You don't feel like doing anything at all,
Except sitting around the house.

You start to feel the depression sinking in,
But no one is around to comfort you,
All you can think about is wishing someone was here,
So the depression can be lifted.

I cannot wait to hear your voice again,
For the sound of it warms my heart,
There is nothing I would like more,
Then to be with you in your arms.

But I know that won't happen for a while,
Because of how busy we are in life,
Once we do meet I know neither of us will regret,
Anything that will happen during that day.

There is still a lot of planning to do,
Before we decide to meet, but we will continue,
To talk on the phone and online,
To make the day an extremely memorable one.

Hopefully we will be able to meet soon,
Because we canot stand being apart any longer,
We have dreams about one another,
That possibly can come true if you allow them.

A Fairytale Waiting to Come True

You are always on my mind each day,
And I constantly have dreams about you,
I'm hoping one day these dreams can come true,
So you can be my knight in shining armor.

I am a princess trapped inside,
Waiting for you to come and rescue me,
Do you think you're my prince charming?
If so, come and sweep me off my feet.

Every fairytale needs a happy ending,
Where the prince and princess live happily ever after,
But I'm alone, so my fairytale won't come true,
That's why I always dream that they will.

So I am asking you to be my prince and rescue me,
And I wil be your princess,
Because I want my fairytale to come true,
Because everyone deserces a fairytale life.

Chances are slim for my fairytale to come true,
Because I haven't found my prince charming,
Who would love me for who I am.

Untitled ( yet again )

When I dont hear from you it makes me wonder,
If you're ok or if there is something wrong,
Hopefully there isn't anything wrong,
Because if there is hopefully you'll talk about it.

I am here for you no matter what happens,
Because I care about you, but you know that,
And that you care about me too,
So that is why you can tell me anything.

There isn't anything that I wouldn't do for that,
Because you deserve the best that life has to offer,
Even if it means giving up what you already have,
And that can be a very tough decision to make.

But I am here to help you through it all,
Because that's what friends are there for,
To help you through the good and rough times in life,
And friends will always listen if you have a problem.

Whether it's a small or big problem,
I am here to help you through it,
Because I am such a caring friend.

Running From It All

Things that just don't go right,
Always make your day really lousy,
Because it seems like everything makes you mad,
And there is nothing you can do about it.

You are stuck in a place you don't want to be in,
And everything you tend to do is wrong,
That is the makings fora very stressful day,
And you are just about to explode.

The stress level is way to high to handle,
And if you have to stay there longer, you'll pop,
Because you cannot handle it anymore,
So you go outside and try to cool off.

The cold weather helps cool you off,
But you still feel pretty stressed out,
You still have work to do so inside you go,
And you finish what you're capable of doing.

You keep glancing at the clock to see what time it is,
And the hours just seem to drag on and on,
So you just try to stay busy to help the hours pass,
And sooner then you know it, your shift is done.

You're so happy to get out of there,
And cannot wait to get home.
