Poems About Forever Loved And Lost By Joanna Fuchs

Here are words you can identify with to help you heal from your heartache.

If I’d Never Met You

A forever loved and lost person will always leave a hollow, empty feeling in your chest. But as the author says in her poem, to have never known that love or experienced the loss, you can never grow. This poem looks at the positive side of pain and moving on.

By Joanna Fuchs

If I’d Never Met You

If I’d never met you,
I wouldn’t feel the pain
Of losing your sweet love;
I wouldn’t feel insane.

But if I’d never met you,
I wouldn’t know the pleasure
Of ecstasy’s warm gifts
And memories to treasure.

Now moving on with life,
I force a wistful grin,
Questioning what went wrong,
Wondering what might have been.

You Were My Everything

“You were my everything,” the poem says so well the empty, lost emotion one feels with a breakup or the death of one you loved so much. This poem will ring home with you if you have a forever loved and lost person in your life.

By Joanna Fuchs

You Were My Everything

You were my everything;
Now you’re gone.
I don’t have the strength
To carry on.

Skies always seemed sunny
When you were here;
Now there’s nothing but gloom
In my atmosphere.

I loved you so much;
You were all I had;
Now my whole world
Is depressing and sad.

I’d like to start feeling
Other than blue,
But you were my everything,
What can I do?

In A Daze

Once again, Joanna speaks in this poem of a forever loved and lost person. This person is gone forever, but just about the time she starts healing from her lost love, something reminds her of the pain, and she grieves all over again.

By Joanna Fuchs

In A Daze

I walk around in a daze…
my hollowed out interior
filled with smoky gloom,
choking off all joy.
Just as life begins to clear,
I gasp aloud at the realization,
you’re not here;
you never will be again.
I wilt like a waterlily
in the desert.
I walk around in a daze…

Now That You’re Gone

In this poem, the person in pain wears a mask to the world but inside and in the quiet of home, she mourns the one she forever loved and lost. The world tells her to get over it, but she has tried so hard and can’t let go. The words of Joanna’s poem will help you feel what she is feeling.

By Joanna Fuchs

Now That You’re Gone

Now that you’re gone, I realize
How much you meant to me.
My loss is wide as a starless night sky,
And deep as a stormy sea.

I miss the comfort of your sweet love,
Your absolute devotion;
Now I’m a fountain of endless tears,
A pool of sad emotion.

They tell me I should move on with life,
That time will heal my pain;
I smile and nod and agree with them,
While I slowly go insane.

Time to Say Goodbye

Has your marriage or relationship dissolved? You thought that your forever loved one was going to be around to the end for you, but now they are lost to you? The love is gone, and you are in pain, thinking about what you had and what you have lost forever.

By Joanna Fuchs

Time To Say Goodbye

My heart is breaking in me;
It’s still you whom I adore;
My tears are overflowing:
You don’t love me anymore.

I sleepwalk through each day;
I pray to heaven above,
Hoping you’ll change your mind,
But I know I’ve lost your love.

I wish that things were different;
I wish it were the way it was,
But reality has no pity;
It just happens the way it does.

Will I ever feel any better,
With days when I don’t cry?
No matter what, it’s time to say
Goodbye, my love, goodbye.

Nothing Left to Lose

Have you done everything you can imagine to save your forever loved and lost relationship, but it is all lost? This poem will speak to you of the work you have done to save it all to no avail.

By Joanna Fuchs

Nothing Left To Lose

I don’t know what to do
To get me back to you.
I’ve got nothing left to lose;
I’m sadness, tears and blues.

All bridges have been crossed;
I guess our love is lost.

Is This What Love Is?

Are you in a relationship that has gone south? In the beginning, you had a good time and worked together, but now your forever loved and lost person is gone. You argue and fight all the time. You just want peace back in your life.

By Joanna Fuchs

Is This What Love Is?

Is this all we have together?
Is this what love really is,
Yelling through a quarrel
And making up with a kiss?

Why can’t we get along?
Why do we have to fight?
We starve true love by day
And feed lust all through the night.

I wish we’d settle down;
I wonder where peace went.
Why do we pick at each other;
Why can’t we be content?

If this is what love is,
If tenderness has flown,
I’m thinking more and more,
It’s better to be alone.

Farewell My Love

Has the forever loved and lost person in your life found a new life? Maybe with someone new. You still love them, but at the same time, you don’t want them to know how much you are hurting. This poem says it all and will resonate with your pain.

By Joanna Fuchs

Farewell My Love

Is it really true our love is over now?
Can it be time for us to say goodbye?
Too soon, it’s much too soon, my love, for me;
You smile with ease, but I can only sigh.

We’ve shared our lives and given so much love;
I can’t believe we’re really going to part;
You’re moving toward a new life without me;
I’m left with scars upon my broken heart.

Go on now, if you must; I’ll get along;
How much it hurts, I don’t want you to know.
I’ll set you free without inducing guilt,
But as you leave, the silent tears will flow.

I can’t be mad; I love you way too much;
I’ll hide my sadness now, so you can’t tell.
Sweet happiness is what I wish for you;
Farewell my love, I hope that you fare well.

If Only

Have you spent so much of your time on small things that did not matter, like work or outside activities, and your forever loved person is now lost? You wish so much that you had spent more time on your relationship, so the love had not died? It is so sad because it can never be repaired and you are lost and lonely. Here are words that will speak to your true emotions.

By Joanna Fuchs

If Only

If only I had done the things
That keep true love alive,
I wouldn’t have to acknowledge now
That our love cannot survive.

If only I had described to you
The joy you brought to me,
Instead of bringing you complaints,
You wouldn’t have set me free.

If I had touched you, kissed you, Love,
If I had loved you stronger,
If I had appreciated you,
We would have lasted longer.

If I had often said to you,
“It’s you whom I adore,”
Perhaps you’d still be with me now,
If I had told you more.

If only I had treated you
As if we were best friends,
I wouldn’t be alone in grief,
As our faded love finally ends.

If only I didn’t have to say,
“If only, my love, if only,”
I wouldn’t be all by myself
So sorry, sad and lonely.

If Raindrops Were Tears

If you found that your best friend is your soul mate, but your forever loved one does not have the same feelings, then this poem is for you. You thought it was for a lifetime, but they are now lost. You will always love them, but you know they are lost to you.

By Joanna Fuchs

If raindrops were tears
And it rained every day,
The rain couldn’t wash
My heartache away.

You’re still my ideal;
My love never dies,
But it cuts to the bone–
What I see in your eyes.

You want me to stop;
You want to be friends,
But you’ll be my true love
Until breath and life ends.
