Remind me why I loved you?

Hello everyone, I hope you all are having an amazing day! I am sharing with you all another original poem that I wrote a while ago. This poem is about reminiscing old memories with a loved one and wondering why the relationship fell apart. I really appreciate all the love and support that I receive on my poem posts and I will continue to write more.

Remind me why I loved you?

I want to remember all the good things we did together.

You were the one that mattered the most to me and I thought I loved you.

I should have told you I loved you, instead, I walked away hoping you would understand how I felt and how much I cared for you.

I missed an opportunity to stay close to you, but I let you walk away.

I let you disappear from my memory like the time you spent here.


The way you would slowly devour your food as each piece meant something special to you.

The way you would talk highly about your educational goals felt like we had a connection with one another.

The way you would make me laugh felt like a relationship with an old friend.

The words you spoke it was encouraging to hear you were eager to learn.

Everything you did felt like home.


I wished for more time we would have together.

I wished for longer summers and endless conversations together.

I hoped for meaningful moments and a forever relationship.

I soon realized you reminded me of what I hoped a relationship would be like.

It wasn’t meant to be, but in a moment, it felt like it was going to last.


You didn’t do anything wrong, I just needed someone to blame for my pain.

I only thought you liked me as more than a friend because that’s what other people said.

So, I believed it was true and when I went to make a move,

You seemed you had already moved on.

If you already have, why not tell me?


But I loved our long conversations about our futures.

I loved the way your eyes opened widely when I talked about my life.

I loved the way you cared for people and made sure everyone was doing well.

I loved your humor that would make me laugh for days on end.

I miss your presence and your optimistic mind.


I thought I would wait for you to come back, but now I wait for someone else.

This chapter is closed,

But why am I still rekindling the good times we had?

I don’t hold onto hope, I hold on to what we had.

Or what we could have had.


Time doesn’t stop.

It never has, especially for us.

Especially when I wanted to hold onto you a little bit longer

Or how I wanted your time here to last a little longer.

But maybe time was telling me, it’s time to let go and move on.


I don’t know how this would have played out for us,

But I’m thankful for the wonderful experience I had with you.

The lost memories still creep into my mind and the distant pictures I see on social media remind me of your personality and charisma.

A true person who I am so happy to have spent time with.

So, now I close this feeling and stop rekindling moments with a person who I thought I was supposed to be with.
