Tell me how to overcome this feeling that's got the best of me
How can I walk away without looking back and remembering how things used to be
Our paths that once looked in the same direction are now split in two
How can I move towards the other way when my heart is wanting you

It used to make me so happy to think of you
How just the sound of your name brought a smile to my face
Now it just leaves me in so much pain
Because things are never going to be that way again

I've come to learn the truth of a life you left behind
It broke my heart so much to know that there's probably never going to be a chance for you and I
I'm left to question where do we go from here and what's going to happen next
The decision is left in your hands and all I can do is wait

Sometimes I wish I was as broken on the outside as I am on the inside
Just so you can see what I'm going through
But even then, I don't think it would've made a difference
Because either way I know I'm going to end up losing you

If only I ignored the way I felt when I first looked into your eyes
I wouln't be going to sleep every night with you being on my mind
I wish I had held my ground and was strong enough to push those feelings aside
But it was beyond my control and now I'm paying the price

How I wish that things would've happend so differently between us
You've come to mean so much to me within such a short period of time
Everyday that I looked forward to us growing into something more
Is now something that I have to forget and leave behind

I never really had you at all, yet I didn't think it would hurt this much to lose you
All of this just seems like a bad dream that I want to awake from
But everyday I have to wake up facing this reality
That you and me just happend but we were never meant to be

As much as it's breaking my heart, I'd rather be the first one to leave
Because I don't think I can handle to see you be the first one to walk away
It's just that I've come to realize that there's no hope for you and I
As perfect as we thought we seemed together, we were always meant to say goodbye

Anyone can look you in the eyes and still not see all the things I do in just one glance
And what hurts the most is knowing that I'll always be that girl who never got the chance
Why we met if we were never meant to be together is something that I'll never understand
All I wanted was to hold your heart, but all I ever got was to hold your hand

Maybe I never meant this much to you, maybe I didn't mean nothing to you at all
But I just wanted to let you know that you'll always have a place in my heart
And even though it's hurting me more than you'll ever know
Sometimes the best thing you can do for a person is just to let them go

Someone once told me that when something seems too good to be true, it's not real
And that's exactly what you turned out to be
Even if we never talk again, please remember that I'm forever changed
By who you are and what you mean to me

    Thank you all for your comments. I'm glad to know that I can bring out the emotional side in some that can honestly relate. :) I wrote this poem about the most wonderful guy I met and because of a situation we parted our ways. I guess it's true when you say to let something you love go and if it comes back it's yours because he came back and now we're together for a year and a half! He's the most amazing guy on earth!! He is my soulmate! I'm in love!!! :)
