How to Move On From A Failed Relationship
1.Let Go by Shelby T. Parsons
What do I do,
When I’m still in love with you?
You walked away,
‘Cause you didn’t want to stay.
You broke my heart, you tore me apart.
Every day I wait for you,
Telling myself our love was true.
But when you don’t show, more tears start to flow.
That’s when I know
I have to let go.
2 Time for Me by Kerri L. Copeland
Today I will leave
And without a fair trade.
I don’t care if this hurts you.
It was your bed you made.
I just have to walk.
To talk just won’t do.
It was never enough
To get through to you.
So, always remember
That you pushed me away.
Now, you have no right
To ask me to stay.
No flowers, or diamonds,
No declarations of heart,
No begging, no pleading,
And no fresh start.
You have sealed your fate
With your selfish demands.
You will never change
Or wash the blood off your hands.
3. Letting Go by Judy Burnette
How do you walk away from someone you love
And take the road of friend;
Can you reroute the course you have taken
And start over once again?
I don’t really want to let you go
But inside me I know I must;
The times we’ve loved . . . the times you’ve left
My heart says stay . . . but it’s my mind I must trust.
We have shared so much together
Laughter . . . fun times . . . tears;
Yet sometimes we can’t turn back time
We must walk away, and allow ourselves to heal.
I know one day you will be happy
And your soulmate you will find;
I know we each have one out there
Even if for now . . . only in our minds.
May life be gentle with you
May God’s best come your way;
And on some quiet tomorrow
You will realize things were better this way.

5. This Is My Strength by Lauren Bowman
When you left,
I immediately deleted your number and pictures
and pulled our memories from the wall.
This is my strength.
This is how I know I’ll survive.
I cried as I erased you,
but I erased you anyway.
I wished you back,
but I still opened my hands
and let you go.
Poems About Moving On To Heal Your Broken Heart
6. Lost Love by Silke Wettergren
The most amazing moment was when we met
The love and time I have shared with you
have all been without regret…
In spite of our love…
I am painfully aware
That you are gone,
And no longer there..
You made up your mind and you went away…
as things started to not feel right…
I know it’s pointless to wish for you to stay…
because at the end of the tunnel there is no more light
Often I don’t know what to say or do..
So many times I have cried over you…
Emptiness and sorrow is now a part of me,
Since I have to accept that we will never be..
Our memories continue to live in my heart
As I wish you well with your brand-new start
Please, believe me when I say
You will always be with me
Come what may

7. Nothing Stays the Same by Carol A. Andrews
The earth spins like a rolling ball.
Stars shine bright then fade away.
Darkness melts and turns to light.
The sunrise starts another day.
The sun dips slowly into the sea.
The moon will wax and wane.
The sea will rise and fall with tides.
And you will love again.
Nothing ever stays the same.
Mountains change with time.
Rivers flow and lakes run dry.
Salty tears will flood the eye.
Healing follows after pain.
A crush of grape becomes fine wine.
And you will love again.
Yes! You will love again.
8. What Healing Is Meant To Look Like by Blake Auden
I don’t know
to look like,
the smell of you
from my hoodie
a good place
9. Moving on was never meant to be easy by Floribel
Moving on was
never meant to be easy.
It will hurt, it will be painful,
it will be exhausting,
but it will always be
10. I’m Busy Finding Me, A Poem About Moving On…. by Lorelai
I miss you in silence
And every moment in between
But I’m a little busy unfolding
Those pieces of who I used to be
I miss you at sunrise
Until it’s time to greet the moon
Don’t you see,
I don’t miss you any less than yesterday
I’m just a little busy
