This poem is about two people breaking up but one still has feelings for the other and what the words "I love you" mean.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Sad Love Poems

You said the words I love you,
But it is obvious things have changed.
I said the words I love you,
And my feelings are still the same.
You said I'll love you forever,
But forever wasn't long enough.
I said I'll love you always,
And I'll mean it forever.
But I can not imply to you
What that means,
'Cause your version of Forever
Isn't what it seems,
And my version of Always
Seems like an unrealistic dream.

    My girlfriend just broke up with me, and we had made the promises mentioned in the poem. I told her I'd love her forever and I meant it, but obviously she didn't. Your poem puts into words a lot of what I am feeling, and that's why I like it.

    everything to girls that boys say are just a dream but if the girl says something to the boy he thinks its true and either get discussded or very happy i think LOVE is a strong word and sometimes very powerful this poem is so true that it makes me cry everytime i read it
