Relationship Doubt: I Thought You Were The One

Updated on December 30, 2013

Some disagreements can cause doubt in a mate's mind regarding the depth of love and the strength of their relationship.

The poem, "I Thought You Were The One," illustrates that experience, the reconciliation of head and heart, and also includes the response, "I Knew."


My Doubt

I Thought

I thought our relationship was progressing wonderfully and that
we would endure the tests of time.

I thought that I was your primary concern just as you have grown to be mine.

I thought my feelings were important to you and that you would understand how this morning’s disappointment can create a wedge between a woman and her man.

I thought we’d spend the evening in celebration with my long-time, family-like friends.

I thought you said your history doesn't affect your future, yet your actions are based on that history and it seems you refuse to bend.

I thought our love was truly a gift from God and that I had finally met “The One.”

But your reasoning is unacceptable and I feel like shutting down behind the doubt that’s begun.

I thought we were made for each other and that our love would heal the pain of our pasts.

I thought we shared so much in common and were building a foundation that would forever last.

I thought I’d write through my thoughts and feelings, not knowing what the end will be;

Seeking God for revelation and direction to make authentic decisions that respect you while honoring me.

As I left one event and headed for the other, I realized that you had been right;

I was making the situation more than it was and that this was not a worthy fight.

Again, you were there to lovingly support me- you dropped me off
and picked me up in your car.

You also provided for my simplest and core basic needs, I thought you were “The One” and you ARE!


His Response


I KNEW that this was just another test and I would stand firm while Satan would squirm...

I KNEW HE would come after you to get to me...

I KNEW HE resented any form of love that was blessed from above...

I KNEW HE would come with a fake loaded gun and try to place doubts in your head and doubts in your heart...

I KNEW LOVE would survive the Master of Lies...

I KNEW if given the time to "think" that the devil would blink and move someplace else…

I KNEW, I KNEW, I KNEW it would take more than B.S.
to come between Me and You.


Be Blessed,

      Thank you! Love & Relationships are a rocky road and emotional roller coaster ride, but definitely worth the journey. :-)
