From the first moment that I saw you


I knew you was the one


On that cold winter day


Is where my life begun


When you came into my life


You saw all the past scars


You mended back together


The pieces of this broken heart


Having you in my life


I have learned to trust again


I have found true love


I have found my best friend


No one on this earth


Could show me love like you


After all the years that have past


You continue to stay true

Many, many years ago


I prayed every night


God answered my prayers


Sending you into my life


I have been extremely blessed


To share this life with you


To start our own family


Side by side in all we do


How lucky I have been


Together we share our life


We have had our ups and downs


But we have always survived


Together we are as one


Until the very end


On you I depend


I love you always best friend

      Hello Martie! I am honored. You are correct. Many of my poems I don't read twice. I write how I feel and that is that. You see what I feel for her. It makes me happy knowing someone else can see it also. Thank you so much Martie. Best wishes always Martie.

      Prasetio, we both would pray before we ever met for true love. We meant it with all our heart. I felt like I needed it. We found each other and I knew right away she was the one. God gave me a special gift, the power to read someone to help them. I feel you are honest, loyal, trusting, and sincere. I feel that you may have been hurt before. If I am wrong, I am sorry. Love will find you my friend. Why? You are a good man, a true friend. Your friends love you dearly. Someone does love you. She is the shy type. It will come to you. DO NOT GIVE UP!

      Beautiful poem, Richard. Thanks for coming to my hub. You are very talented person and I know that from your profile. I am glad to meet you here and we can be a good friend. Love is always be a mystery, but it also a good idea for you as a creative person.

      I still search my "true love". I believe you have someone who love you. Is the women in your avatar your wife? I hope you both always love each other forever. God bless you. Cheers...

      Love and peace, Prasetio:)

      Marcoujor, thank you so much for the inspirational comment. I feel like God has gave me the gift of writing. I am much better at writing songs, but in a way, a song is a poem. I am just glad that I am blessed and able to share this gift with others. Thank you so much.
