Poem: Undying Love

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

"Undying Love" is a poem about loving someone when they are hurting. We want to stop the pain but we cannot.

We can only hold on to memories and let him see our smile.

As we wait for that moment when time stands still. That moment we no longer feel his embrace.

"George Jones ~ He Stopped Loving Her Today"

Undying Love

It's like a chisel is cutting out pieces of her heart

a little each day,

she hurts beyond repair

knowing she cannot stop his pain.


Photos flash through her mind

touching memories,

as he reaches out one last time

to see her smile,

before that final curtain calls.


When time stands still

leaving her breathless and alone,

no longer feeling the warmth of his embrace,

until eternity takes her soul.

To lose someone you love is to alter your life forever..

The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes..

This hole in your heart is the shape of the one you lost -

no one else can fit it.

— Jeanette Winterson
