Poetry About Moving On: Thank You For Teaching Me I Deserved More

Updated on June 13, 2013
Source


I wish I could tell you

That I finally learned to breathe

That I pushed pass the pain

And learned how to fly free.


I wish you were here to see

What loving you did for me

I learned to face the world

And take hold of my destiny


I wish you could know this man

That I face in the mirror every day

Because he knows all the words

That I wanted to say


Way back then

When I couldn’t express,

All the things that I

Just needed to get off my chest.


About my love for you,

And how those waters ran so deep

Back then,

I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep


All I could do was love,

And all my love was for you

Now I have to close the door,

On another dream that never came true


But you know what

I still want to thank you.

Thank you for showing me

All the things that I never knew I could do


Like how to get over

A broken heart

Pick up the pieces

Make a new start


How to love stronger

And to always endure

But most of all I want to thank you

For teaching me

I deserved more.

      It took a minute to work up the emotion I needed for this piece, and once I had it the words just flowed.

      Honestly MsKrysma it hurt to writ e this piece, because it brought out the old anger that I still carried with me, but I'm happy with someone I love and I wouldnt be in the place I am without the people who broke my heart.

      Great poem! I can really relate to this. Even though it hurts while going through it, in the end heartbreak can teach us so much.
