Hand in hand
Staring at the sky
I whispered
"Things always to be"
You smiled whispering
"Things forever"
I look back and wonder
"Where are our promises?"
I scratch my head
The answers won't come

Hand in hand
The thought of you
Standing at the gate
And on my waking hour
I thought of you
Yet you were gone

Hand in hand
The dream is gone
Why oh why?
Can't roses stay in bloom
Holding
I'll hold on forever
I'm still falling

Hand in hand
This ring I hold
Feels so cold
Time to time
I wonder what could have been
I scratch my head
The answers are gone

Time to time
A drop of hope falls
It falls to quickly
The thought passes away

Hand in hand
Maybe I'm crazy
For thinking
We could ever be

A dream shattered
All to quickly
I'll hold on forever
I'm still falling
A loss of love poem.

The thought of you
Standing at the gate
And on my waking hour
I thought of you
Yet you were gone

I like this segmant but one question I have is what happen? Did they leave or pass away? I ask because of the line about the ring being cold, like you had this love and it was abruptly taken away possibly by some tragic twist of fate.

I'm hold on forever
I'm still falling

did you "I'm" or "I'll"? Just wondering. Great poem though I like the imagry and i can feel it coming to life. Great Job

The girl left me. The first two lines are about a dream. The third line is about waking up. The fourth line is my first thought of the day, but soon realized she was gone. The ring being cold was because she cheated on me. She was cold to me and I felt cold inside because someone that loved me was gone, same holds true for the promises being gone.

Not my best work. It's not as metaphorical as I usually write. Some of the lines have dual meanings:

"Time to time
A drop of hope falls
It falls to quickly
The thought passes away"

I meant for this to be 1) a hopeful situation 2) A sad thought that brings tears
