The greatest pain in the world is that of the broken heart. When you experienced a continuous outpouring of love only to see it disappear and be replaced by a pain just as large. Love is the most powerful force in the world. Every decision we make in our lives is based upon either an attempt to get love or to give love. Everything. Everything that we’re doing, the motivation that gets us up and keeps us going throughout the day is fueled by either getting or giving love in some way.

Love is what fuels us. When you don’t feel you have love in your life, you try to get it. When you feel you are filled with love, you give love freely. OK, so you’re probably reading this because you are hurting. You may be hurting deeply. You may have been severely betrayed or you may just have been dumped. You may have been dating for a few months, but maybe you had been married twenty years. Whatever the case, you could certainly use some love words and encouragement poems right now.

But let me say this first before I get to the poem. The part of the pain that hurts the most is the part that can heal the quickest, if you would like to know how. The deep piercing pain doesn’t have anything to do with your partner, but with you. It almost always lies in some type of love or validation your partner is now no longer fulfilling. If you can locate the space inside you that already has whatever you were looking for her to fulfill within you, then you can be free and whole again.

The duller pain caused by the void of love is just that. That void you can fill in other ways and soon will, especially if you heal the deeper piercing pain that has to do with you. This is where you move from trying to get love back into the space of giving love.

I Wish You Could See

I wish you could see what you mean to me

I wish you could see what my heart has given

I wish you could see how I'd make you feel

I wish you could see the queen you would be

I knew you better than anyone else

All your dreams you shared fully with me

All your fears you couldn't hide from my view

All your secrets you confided only with me

I saw you blossom into a new woman

I saw you change right before my eyes

Your highs and your lows I helped you get through

I saw in you what you couldn't see

I knew your pains because they once were mine

I knew your soul better than you knew yourself

For I saw in you what you couldn't believe

I saw the goddess I knew that you were

I knew how to make you feel special

I knew how to avoid your sensitive spots

I knew how to help you take risks

I knew how to bring out the goddess in you

No one knew how to love you like me

No one made you feel safe like I did

No one could be the haven for your soul

No one withstood your ebbs and your flows

I still loved you when you ran and hid

I could see right through the charade you put up

I waited and waited and anchored you up

I made you laugh like nobody could

I knew your words before you could say them

I could make you happy or sad at the drop of a hat

I could guide your anger, excitement, and fear

I could embrace your quirky emotions

After all that, couldn't you see?

Couldn't you see what I'd offer you?

Couldn't you see how I made you feel?

Couldn't you see who you were around me?

Why'd you give your heart to another

When your whole soul you shared with me?

Why'd you give your lips to someone

Who couldn't see what I saw in you?

How could you surrender to a man

Who couldn't blossom your wild energy?

How could you feel safe with him

Who couldn't see the goddess in you?

My heart is broken for what might have been

I thought you could see what I could see

I'm sorry I couldn't help you to see

The goddess you'd be if in my arms you were
