Poem: One Last Time

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

"One Last Time" is a poem about a man who loves a woman more than anyone else in his life. When he reaches out giving her one last hug, she burst into tears as her heart breaks into tiny pieces. She cries knowing she is listening to his heartbeat touching hers one last time.

"In The Arms Of An Angel" by Sarah Mclachlan


One Last Time

He loves her
more than anyone in his life,
he reaches out
hoping to grasp one last hug.

When he holds her tightly
her tears begin to fall,
her heart shatters
into tiny, broken pieces.

Crying uncontrollably,
not able to form a word,
she listens to his heartbeat
touching hers
for one last time.


Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

— Dr. Seuss

This is a sad write. My most favorite singer in the whole wide world is George Jones. I'm on my way back up to listen to him and I have always thought that song hits home with me.
