You and Me- A Poem

Updated on December 12, 2011

You came into my world with a question for me.

Yes, that is how we first met.

You wanted information, and you got it.

You liked that I was so helpful to you.


When you came to my world, I was so happy to meet you.

We had interesting conversations from the beginning.

We were almost inseparable.


My friends were asking me to date you.

I was hesitant at first because I had just come out of a relationship

And wasn't sure if I was ready to date just yet.

But I thought about it for a few weeks;

And made my decision.

I was going to wait for you to ask me out

Or tell me that you were interested in me.


When it seemed apparent that you were also interested in me,

I didn't feel that I had to ask you that same question.


At first, dating you was very awkward.

I knew I liked you, and liked you a lot.

I was not sure how much you liked me in return.

I knew that if I was dating you, that I was interested in

A long term commitment.

I was not sure what you felt.

I debated asking my friends to ask you that question.

But then I thought, β€œI'm the adult here; I should do that.”


So after a few months of dating, I asked you what you wanted to

Do in the long run.

Was this just a fling or was it true?

You said you were also in it for the long haul.

I was happy.


I felt I had found the one person who really understood me

And loved me for who I was.

I had never really met anyone before who loved me for me.

That really made me feel special.


When you introduced me to your parents, that was when it sunk in

That we were going to get married.

It hit me hard, and I thought, β€œMe get married? Wow!

I never thought it would happen.”

But it happened.


We were married in a flurry of people and food.

Although I had wanted a small wedding, you wanted it grand!

I was so nervous because I am not good in a large crowd of people.

But you assured me and told me that all would be well, and that

Everyone would love me.


Now that we are married, things are well.

We are still best friends, we still tell each other everything,

And our personalities have not changed.

Thank you for understanding me and loving me for who I am.

I love you, my wonderful, wonderful husband!

      Hi Rani.

      You have written a beautiful poem about you and him. I would say he's a very lucky man to have such a wonderful wife as you seem to be.

      Take care and have a wonderful romantic evening.

      LOL Ghaelach
