I Knew You Were the One

Updated on February 7, 2011
Our love will never die
Our love will never die


This is my first hub and indeed my very first poem, that is since I was at school! I have always loved poetry and adore receiving poems written especially for me. I have never considered writing a poem myself, let alone publishing it for people to read! I have however been persuaded to write one by one of the hubbers on here! So thank you Amorea13 for giving me a gentle nudge!



I Knew You Were the One


The first time I saw you

I knew you were the one


Your voice, your words

A dream come true

My heart began to melt

As you looked deep into my eyes,


Your gentle touch

And soft persuasion

Our first lingering kiss

Always I will remember,


Our nights of passion

Sensual moments

Feeling you close to me

Till the break of day,


Magical moments

Privately shared

Our hearts entwined

Always together,


A love like ours

Will last forever

Through life’s

Smooth or rocky path,


Memories played back

A video in my mind

How I long to touch you

Caress you once again,


True love never dies

Its richness seeps

Through every cell

A feeling of emotion,


The first time I saw you

I knew you were the one!

      Oh my God ok how old are you, I feel old now

      She was the one that played on the sitcom in the 80's i think "one day at a time" and now she acts on "hot in cleveland" with Betty white, if you know who she is.

      her name is actually spelled Bertinelli, go look at pictures of her and yes it is a compliment, ask any guy

      Have a good night

      PS great hub again and yes as you said, love is all around, with love everything else falls in place.

      That is a great poem especially for your first one. Is that you and your bf in the picture.

      By the way, in the picture you posted you kind of look like Valeria Bertnellia.

      Have a good day

      beautiful words Sally and I feel the very same about you as my friend and esteemed colleague and the most personal love poem I've written I would like you to read if you can - I wrote it to my ladyfriend Sannel - If for only one day I could take away your pain - have a read of it if you can - Sannel printed it out and has read it over more than 20 times she said - that makes me proud because I really do love her. lake erie time canada 7:55pm

      Epi you are awesome, thank you. You have inspired me too, inspired me to carry on and write poetry even though I didn't really consider my words good enough. I have learned so much from you. I have read your latest love poem and you are certainly very romantic and I can tell that you speak from your heart. Wonderful. The heart is more powerful than any other muscle and we feel complete love in our hearts first of all. Love is so wonderful when it is fully reciprocated. You are a genius Epi, you are a friend for life and I for one, amongst so many others, love what you bring to HubPages. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

      175 comments here Sally - that is remarkable - and I'd thought I'd start at the very beginning - and you were the one whom inspired me to write lovey dovey poetry more than anyone else - so in a way you have been my muse - and a favor to ask of you - please check out my love poem to my girlfriend Sannel in one of my latest - If for only one day(I could take away your pain) - I think it's my best one yet and it's straight from my heart - Happy Canada Day to you from lake erie time 6:09pm

      Wow this really is such an amazing comment Website Examiner - you totally see where I am coming from. Love is indeed a very deep affection and our love is totally durable and in fact becomes stronger and stronger minute by minute. I am so, so fortunate to have experienced and am still experiencing LOVE such as this. Thank you so much for taking the time to find out the roots of my poetry. I so appreciate your comment.

      I had to go a bit back in time, through the archives, to discover your True Soul. Well, but you have been consistent in your commitment to values such as: A relationship that starts with love at first sight; the physical relationship is important, but perhaps mostly as a sign of deep affection and caring for one another; the relationship should be durable. All very nice!

      Hello Thelyricwriter - wow what a wonderful comment, thank you so much. I wrote this poem as a response to Amorea13 who actually truly inspired me. I appreciate that this poem is rather rough around the edges but it has inspired me to continue writing. Thank you Amorea13, without you I would be a shadow of the past. Sadly Amorea13 ( a true inspirational poet)is no longer a writer on HubPages but I shall be eternally grateful to him.

      Gosh thank you Lisadpreston. You brought tears to my eyes too when I read your comments. My heart goes out to you and I simply can't imagine just how you feel. Please don't die with your husband, hang on to those wonderful memories. He would want you to live life to the full and to cherish every moment. You will be with him again, but not just yet, he wants you to experience more in your life before joining him. I feel for you so much but time is a great healer and you should draw comfort knowing that he is always in your heart. God bless you and thank you so much for touching my life.

      I'm not into poetry much but when I read this, you brought tears to my eyes. My husband passed away in 07 and when I first saw him, I knew he was the one. I cannot stop grieving for him. This month, January was the anniversary of his death and I think I died with him. The poem was lovely and it surely touched my heart.

      To encapture your reader so that they live the written words is a skill not many have, you do as does another female poet you would like as she writes similar to you, Chrissie123, you would like her !
