If I Could Whisper I Love You


There was a man that came into my life at a time I needed someone. The beginnings of love began to grow. When tragedy struck my life, he was gone.

I was left with the realization, that he took advantage of me in a time of need. Played his game and left me with a wounded spirit. This poem came from that experience.

In the beginning, as I made an effort to move ahead and heal, I struggled with rejection and worthlessness. I struggled with worthless wishing. I wanted to believe he was true. That I could tell him how much I loved him. Oh how I had wanted what used to be. I wished for it. I agonized over it.

Then, one day…

I realized it hurt less. I thought of him less. I felt a tiny bit human once again.

I know others, men and women alike have loved, have had a great love; have had their hearts broken and played with. I wanted to encourage you, it won’t hurt forever.

If I could Whisper I love you…

If I could tell you how much you meant to me…

I would…

If I could tell you all the times you made me smile…

I would…

If I could show you how you made my heart sing…

I would…

That you made me feel like someone…

I would…

But after you lied, after you left, after you broke me…

I couldn’t…

If I could whisper that I loved you, I would. Now…

I wouldn’t…
