Poem: My Heart Is Breaking

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

My heart is breaking is a poem about when someone you care about dies, passing on to a new eternity. You cannot express your feelings for you must remain strong for others. You know after others are comforted the silence will hit you. You will grieve wanting to talk to him one more time.

"Gone Too Soon" by Simple Plan


My Heart Is Breaking

My heart is breaking,
sorrow fills my eyes,
but no tears can fall
for I cannot let it show.

I must remain strong
letting others lean on me,
waiting for my grief
until I am alone.

I feel torn inside
wanting to yell
at the heavens,
this fate is unfair.

Way too young to die,
to many to leave behind,
shattering dreams of hope,
many left in despair.

Once comfort touches
the emptiness in their souls,
silence will surround me,
allowing me time
to breakdown.

My thoughts will release
with tears overflowing,
as a piece of my heart breaks away
wishing I could talk to you one more time.

Thank you.

You are right!

I have always been the one who has had to be strong.

I guess it's not a bad thing...it keeps me going.

But when the solitude time arrives...then it can feel really terrible.

Take care & have a great Valentine's Day.

There are times you have to be the strong one to help others.

Take care gal.

It is hard being the one people count upon for strength during times of illness and other stresses. Your time will come to be able to let go and grieve fully.
