In the second stanza the poet develops his poem by promising to the girl that he will always accompany that girl whenever she needs him. He tries to make her girlfriend happy although he is trying hard to fix his heart from the disappointment of his first love. There was a girl who ever filled his heart, but she disappointed him. Now, he finds a new girlfriend who gives more attention and the real love. Although he didn’t really love his new girlfriend, he feels calm and happy when beside her. The message found in the lyrical poem “Unintended” is that we should appreciate someone’s love. Another lesson that we get is that we should keep our promise that we give to other persons.
