14 Goodbye Poems For Lovers

How difficult it is when a relationship is over. Especially when one person doesn't want it to end. Feelings of this are expressed in these goodbye poems for lovers.

Let the words of these poems give you the inspiration to move on. Marilyn Monroe said it best when she said, "Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together." At the time we may feel like we had a good thing, but you have to believe there is something better. Marilyn's words are encouraging for someone who felt the relationship was good!

Share these with someone who is going through an ending. Remind them of the words of Len Santos, "Letting go has never been easy, but holding on can be as difficult. Yet strength is measured not by holding on, but by letting go." The best thing we can do at times is just to let go. Staying stuck in the past and what we had hinders us from moving on with our lives. And many times when we look back a year from now we can see perhaps it was a good thing to let it go!

  1. Leaving Me
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011


    I need you now,
    Not then or there.
    How can you be,
    Leaving me.

    For this, I've felt,
    And never liked,
    The thought of you,
    Not being there.

    When will you come,
    To me again,
    To make sure everything,
    Between us is fine.

    For if you leave,
    I’m scared to say,
    One day you're heart,
    May no longer be mine.

  3. Good To End
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    Sometimes what we have is not.
    Requires more than support
    What we think we have
    Looking back will make you mad.

    It is better to let go
    Then live your life in a low
    As hard as it may be
    It is better to be free

    We all deserve to be happy
    But there are times of emptiness
    Keep moving on; time is a friend
    Looking back you will see it was good to end.

  5. One Year Later
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    Now I look back
    And see the fact
    That leaving was the best thing to do.

    At the time
    I couldn't get it in my mind
    That life would be better without you.

    But time has past
    I feel free at last
    Truly the best thing that could have happened.

    Time has a way
    Of making things okay
    So don't regret, just accept!



  6. Our Love Story
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    Our love story nearing its end,
    We bid farewell with tears to spend.
    A goodbye poem, our final vow,
    To capture memories of our now.

    With heavy hearts and bittersweet pain,
    We'll say adieu, but not in vain.
    For the love we shared will remain,
    In these words, we'll forever sustain.

  8. Think Of It
    Unknown Poet

    If I had known in the morning,
    How wearily all the day
    The words unkind
    Would trouble my mind,
    I said when you went away!

    If I had been more careful, darling,
    Nor given you needless pain!
    But we vex our own
    With look and tone
    We may never take back again.

    For though in the quiet evening
    You may give me the kiss of peace,
    Yet it might be
    That never for me
    The pain of the heart should cease.

    How many go forth in the morning
    That never come home at night!
    And hearts have broken
    For harsh words spoken,
    That sorrow can ne'er set right.

  18. In Your Arms
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    In your arms, I found solace and peace,
    A love so deep that time could not cease.
    But now the moment has come to say goodbye,
    As our paths diverge, tears fill my eye.

    Every stolen glance, every tender touch,
    The memories we made, they mean so much.
    But life's unpredictable, it takes its toll,
    And now we must part, with a heavy soul.

    Though distance may separate us, it's true,
    Know that my love for you will always renew.
    Through the vast oceans and mountains so high,
    In my heart, our love will never die.

    So farewell, my love, though it brings me pain,
    I'll cherish the moments, again and again.
    May life grant you happiness and endless delight,
    As we bid adieu, and embrace the night.

  24. The Words Come Slow
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    In the depths of night, we sit
    Our eyes locked in a solemn fit
    The words come slow and heavy laden
    Sorrowed whispers, goodbyes forsaken

    Each breath we take feels like our last
    Fading memories now a thing of the past
    A love that once burned hot and bright
    Fades to darkness with this final light
