who are you?

one I never knew

I noticed you looking at me but I didn't care
all I saw was a man in long messy hair

you came toward and sat by me
still I didn't realize we were meant to be

slowly
you opened my eyes to thing I never thought would happen
doubtfully
I tried to accept but still always be frighten

but how can I not thank the Lord
who let me be there the day we first talked

and I'm glad, to have a simple way to get
knowing you
ten worthy minutes, the day we first met
and continued

that's how I met you

This is a beautifully heartfelt expression of gratitude for meeting your true love. I know just hoe you feel!

I like how the beginning is rhyming couplets but the end is free verse like love should be!

Very poignant. Heartfelt.

I really liked this. Not just the words, but the style which was so unusual yet it worked. Spot on!
