I have always been a person who chose to write about my feelings rather than to discuss them.

Basically, I had been friends with this person for less than a year, but I knew that this was something different and something so much better than anything I have ever felt before. Before I knew it, I had fallen in love and now all I can do and think about is how lucky I truly am. I dedicate this to you - I hope you know that (you know who you are).

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Love and Friendship Poems

As Days Flew By
The very first time I saw you,
Was special how we met.
You took me by complete surprise.
I knew my heart was set.

As days flew by, we talked again,
But you never seemed to care.
I tried my best to help you out,
By a favor here, or a favor there.

Although I made a fast approach,
Our friendship grew and grew.
I realized how deep I cared,
But the feeling I felt was new.

In time I became attached to you.
From a hug, I wouldn't let go.
I soon saw how close we were,
And the feeling was good to know.

For you, I wrote sweet letters and songs.
You were on my mind all day.
The thought of sleeping was nowhere near,
Unless I knew you were okay.

It hit me then, what I was in -
A unique and precious love.
For the person I said was only mine,
Was an angel sent from above.

The minutes without you turned into days,
And the seconds with you flew fast.
I could only wish to see you more,
And make each moment last.

The times I spent with you,
Were what made my heart complete.
I knew one thing for sure,
Without you, my future was obsolete.

And now, we love just the same,
As it doubles day by day.
I stare deep into your precious eyes,
Yet I'm still speechless to what I should say.

With you, I'm in a whole new world.
You bring out the best in me.
It's hard to picture you not there,
When you taught me who to be.

Yes, the road ahead gets hard,
When things may only seem rough.
But because you and I try so much,
We'll stay strong and get by tough.

Though problems may lie ahead someday,
And either of us could be right;
I promise to always be by your side,
And I promise my heart, so hold it tight.

And so, each night, beside my bed,
When there's only bright stars to see;
I pray that we may never give up,
And will always remain you and me.

    As I read this poem, I completly broke down into tears. I have already read it a few times, and I feel like I wrote this poem. I feel this exact way about a guy I have not even known for a year. As soon as I met him I knew he was the one. We are now best friends, and I want to be more then that, only I don't think he wants to be more then friends. I would do anything for him, anything at all. I only wish he knew how much he truely means to me. I really felt this poem was very emotional for me, because I feel as though it relates to what I am going through now.
