— Nicholas Sparks (Dear John)


This one's for the girl
The girl who thought she was in love
The boy who told her he loved her
The girl who believed.

This one’s for the stars
The stars that looked down upon them
The moon that shone a light
The night that will always last.

This one’s for the baby
The baby that was created
The parents that were formed
The lives forever changed.

This one’s for the boy
The boy who left his new family
The girl who became a single parent
The boy who will forever hate himself.

This one’s for the girl
The girl who tries not to cry
The angel that holds her together
The girl that won’t let her heart break.

This one’s for you.

I enjoyed the use of specific examples that went into depth. I can relate to this poem; that's why I felt it was good. Consider using commas after each line. My favorite line is (l. 2) "The girl who thought she was in love".

I am the author of my own life... unfortunately I'm writing in pen and can't erase my mistakes.

Wow, you did an amazing job with this piece. I loved how the story progressed throughout the poem and you really portrayed a great mental image.
