POETRY- THAT SPECIAL ONE

Updated on June 16, 2011


I remember just like it was yesterday


The look upon your face


I knew it was love at first sight


As you made my heart race


Both of us were lost


Wondering around with past pain


You took my hand, made me understand


You were a shelter from the rain


It was like I had already knew you


Though I can't remember the time


From that very first day we met


You have always been on my mind


Words can't express this feeling


Nor the commitment I have for you


After all the years that have passed


Our love still remains true


I miss you when you are gone


Even if it is just for the day


The lord has truly blessed me


In every possible way


I know he wanted us together


He answered my single praire


He sent someone that loved me


It shows me how much he cares


I do believe in miracles


Praires are answered I am sure


I have everything I need


My family I do adore


Just follow the course my friend


We all have a special one


Some find it in the beginning


Some find it when life is done


Don't be afraid of love


The rewards outweigh the risk


You feel it in their touch


You feel it in their kiss


You will know that you have found it


When you feel love in their touch


When they put you first


When they can't get enough


Cause true love is forever


Until our life is done


Don't you ever let go my friend


They might be that special one

      Thanks Jami. I enjoy your writing very much. Our styles may be why. I feel connected to you in another level. I believe we have both went through some hard times in life. I get that feeling that you would understand my entire story and I the same. It is goos to have someone that understands you.

      This was so beautiful and uplifting about love and faith, especially the verses about gratitude and appreciation for knowing what a great blessing this kind of love is. Thanks so much for sharing this poem. Voted up across the board except for funny.
