Both of Us


We've known from the first moment,

That love could tear your world apart.

I believed that we had something special.

That it would be different with our hearts.


How can you think this is the answer?

I want to fight for the love we had.

We have so much to fight for.

Our baby needs a mom and a dad.


Part of both of us needs us both.

You can't just say goodbye,

Not after everything we've been through.

We can get through this if we just try.


After the time we've had together,

And now you want to leave.

You're leaving with my heart.

I still can't make myself believe.

  • Comment from author about the poem: I wrote this years ago when we were having marriage problems. Our oldest child was just a toddler at the time. We've worked through our share of problems and we've just celebrated our 21st anniversary. I'm glad to say we're still happily married. And stronger in our love because of the love and respect we have for each other. I just want to say to people having problems, some things can be worked out and each of you can compromise (on things, not on who you are and what's important to you) but sometimes you just have to let go.

    Just beautiful and so sad but so pleased to read that you both worked through it. Marriage has to be worked at and I'm pleased to add that after 50 years my wife and I are as strong in our love for each other as we have ever been.

      My parents have been married over 50 years too. I think it's wonderful when couples can stay together and work things out, especially these days when the majority of marriages end in divorce. Congratulations to you! 50 years is an amazing milestone. Thank you for your comments!

        Marriage is hard. It takes a lot of work, love, forgiveness, understanding and compromise (on both sides). Thank you for your nice comments. I'm glad you enjoyed it and could relate.
