A poem about finding true love

The One at Last


He often sits and wonders when

He’ll find a girl he likes and then

The moment comes that she reveals

Cupid’s target never heals


She hints to him there’s something more

Something they didn’t know before

That she set aside a spot in her heart

Where a rose wouldn’t grow, were they apart


A garden that needed a gentle hand,

Something found in but one man

The one you search for near and far,

Through many battle wounds and scars


And as you look to numerous stars

Each one a man who left you scars

There is but one, it’s really Mars

The man who ends these star crossed wars


Often times you do not see

What is hidden among the rest of we

Hidden in a patch of clover

Special, yet accidentally passed right over


And when at last you think you’re through

That he’ll be him and you’ll be you

And searching finally has ceased

That you believe love is deceased


You notice one that stands out clear

The clover in the middle here,

Slightly trampled by those before

The lucky one with leaves of four


You clear a space for him to go

So you together work and grow

And finally at last you see

That I’ve found you and you’ve found me.

Thanks! I try to incorporate what I am feeling and what comes to mind, when something is stuck in my head the only way to get it out is to write it out!
