I woke up this morning with the blues all 'round my bed.
I woke up this morning with the blues all 'round my bed.
I felt just like somebody in my family was dead.
I began to moan and I began to cry,
I began to moan and I began to cry,
My sweet man went away didn't know the reason why.

~Lil Johnson~

Cry me a river
Cry me a river
For I cried a river over you.

~Arthur Hamilton~

Pin It

A four step strategy that shows you how to win back a lover, wandering spouse or stop a marriage that is headed for divorce. Bring back your lost love for good.

It's what you do unthinking,
That makes the quick tear start;
The tear may be forgotten--
But the hurt stays in the heart.

~Ella Higgenson~

When my bed is empty
Makes me feel awful mean and blue
My springs are getting rusty
Living single like I do.

~Bessie Smith~

Come back to me in dreams, that I may give
Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
Speak low, lean low,
As long ago, my love, how long ago.

~Christina Rossetti~

Lost Love Poems

We must in tears
Unwind a love knit up in many years.
IN this last kiss I here surrender thee
Back to thyself, so thou again art free;
Thou in another, sad as that, resend
The truest heart that lover e'er did lend.

~Henry King~

Lost Love PoemsI will not let thee go.
Ends all our month-long love in this?
Can it be summed up so
Quit in a single kiss?
I will not let thee go.

~Robert Bridges~

Sad Love Poems:

There is no pain equal to that which two lovers can inflict on one another. This should be made clear to all who contemplate such a union. The avoidance of pain is the beginning of wisdom, for it is strong enough to contaminate the rest of our lives.

~Cyril Connolly~

Terminate torment
of love unsatisfied
The greater torment
of love satisfied.


'Tis not love's going hurts my days,

But that it went in little ways.

~Edna St. Vincent Millay~

Sad Love Poems:

Woman wants monogamy
Man delights in novelty.
Love is a woman's moon and sun;
Man has other forms of fun.
Woman lives but in her lord;
Count to ten and man is bored.
With this the gist and sum of it,
What earthly good can come of it?

~Dorothy Parker~

Lost Love Poems:

I hold it true, what e'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

~Alfred, Lord Tennyson~

The kiss of virgins, first-fruits of the bed,
Soft speech, smooth touch, the lips, the maindenhead:
These, and a thousand sweets, could never be
So near, or dear, as thou wast once to me.

~Robert Herrick~
