Far too many times we fall in love with someone who doesn't love us back. And as much as you love & care for them, there is nothing you can do to change the way they feel. There is no greater hurt then the one of rejection. You put your heart and soul on the line only to have it torn apart. It is a hurt that only time can heal.

I was put in this exact situation a little less then 2 years ago and the pain has still not completely vanished. I loved this person more than words could ever explain. He was the world to me, there was nothing I wouldn't have done for him. And even though he's been gone quite a long time, my heart still hurts when I see him. And writing about my hurt is the one way I can truly express my feelings.

I only hope that this poem can try to ease your pain, if something like this has happened to you. And one piece of advice I give to those who are hurting from rejection as I am, never give up hope. Hope is the key to everything. As long as you have faith in yourself, everything will turn out ok in the end. That I can promise you.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Love and Friendship Poems

One Day You'll See
The first time I saw you,
I knew you were the one.
There was no question in my mind,
after having that much fun.

There's just something about you,
that I've never found before.
And now that we're good friends,
I find myself wanting more.

I never thought it possible,
to care for one so much.
But everyday that passes,
I long to feel your touch.

To look into your eyes,
would make my day complete,
cause every time you look at me,
my heart just skips a beat.

Everything I'd wished for,
every dream I'd hope come true,
I never thought would happen,
until the day that I met you.

I know that your not ready,
for the kind of commitment that I am,
but for you I'd wait forever,
there's nothing I can't stand.

Although it hurts to know,
that you don't feel the same as me,
hopefully one day you'll realize,
one day you'll wake up and see.
