This is a poem symbolizing a memory of the day I met someone special

June 16th, 2011...a day filled of sun and hot weather

The cloudless sky and rays of light bore witness to two worlds beginning to tether. 

It was the day our eyes locked for the first time

It was the beginning of an elaborate crime 

The hypnotic way your curls bounced captivated me

The day we met, you began stealing my heart so easily

Phone calls, texts, and long conversations sealed the deal

Fearful walls dissipated in recognition that this love is really real 

I was damaged when we met and you repaired me 

You taught me how to love again when love had scared me

Friendship is the foundation for the love we built 

Honesty and trust insured that this love would not wilt

Everyday I'm blessed to be allowed to stare into your beautiful eyes

I am blessed to be loved for me, I need no disguise 

Years later and I am still captivated by the beauty that is you

I am lucky to find my best friend in a love so true

Such a beautiful tribute to your true love. This is such a sweet poem. You could write a romance novel to expand on this! It's that good!!
