Poem about love and happiness

Blinding Love


How on earth could I be

So stupid as to never see

What has been put in front of me

Someone who set emotions free


A girl of love, life, and laughter

Everything I’m chasing after

Perfection here is not the key

But she’s as close as one could be


I know not why she’s drawn to me

For compared to her I’m far beneath

Though yet she sees me not as I am

But as what I can be, a greater man


And so for her I try and reach

The limits through which I can breach

To grow in love, and adoration

For her my one true motivation.

Wow... I totally wrote a comment yesterday but it must not have stuck! But this one is so incredibly amazing! Whoever she is/was- she's lucky to be/have been so admired by someone as much as this!
