I promise I haven’t forgotten you,
Wherever you may be.
I promise I’ve still kept those memories;
I still see you and me.

Time has crept up upon us,
And things haven’t stayed the same.
I’ve faced tears and trails,
And we’ve both dealt with the pain.

Those moments still feel like yesterday,
When we were still together.
I can remember every smile and laugh;
We thought this would last forever.

But the summer heat had faded,
And is it did, so did we.
As meaningful as it had become,
It seemed we weren’t meant to be.

It’s as if you are a stranger now;
When I see you, there’s nothing there.
You do not smile, you do not laugh.
You don’t even stop or stare.

I wonder if you’ve forgotten,
Or just thrown the memories away.
It seems like it means nothing to you;
Yet I regret this day after day.

I promise you; I won’t forget.
I won’t be bitter, I won’t be mad.
I’ll keep all the memories and thoughts of you.
I won’t forget everything we had.

I will always remember the time we had,
And I promise I won’t forget you.
Just in the end, remember “us”,
And know our love was true.

I wrote this long before my breakup ever took place. However, it described my situation perfectly, and probably many other teenagers and their love. Enjoy and please comment :)

I don't give a da*m what other people think. It's entirely their own business. I'm not writing to please other people,i'm writing because it's the only thing that keeps me sane.

Totally what i just went through.. Ahh you're a life saver.. LOVE the poem :)

Somehow I feel like this piece was written for me. I did the same thing to a certain someone. And I regret it so much. I love it so much this poetry, I feel better for some reason after reading it.
