Usually when your looking for love you never find it, and when you stop believing in it, is when it finds you . . .

This poem originally was published in Love Poems

My First Love
I never thought I'd ever learn to Love,
the way simple lovers do.
I always believed it was impossible.
Yet I found myself so in love with you.
Now I know exactly what love truly is
and you are my reason why;
You convinced me to let you in my soul . . .
And you promised you would never lie.
I have learned to cherish and trust you,
In a way I never had before.
And if anything were ever to happen,
My Love,
I think I would only love you more.
I fought my feelings along the way,
but in the end it remains still true -
I have finally found My love in life.
(Just like you always knew. )
If you told me once, you told me twice,
Just how beautiful love could be.
Yet I never realized until now,
that you were speaking of you and me.
You have brought me such happiness,
it takes all my sadness away.
And with my endless loyalty
I will so lovingly repay.
You are my love in life.
This I will never forget.
You are the Love of my Life,
This I knew from the moment we met.

    This poem has touched me in such a way, I had to send it to my husband. we were only 12 and 13 yrs old when we first started a childhood romance. Things happen and children grow, we went our seperate ways thru life growing up. After 38 yrs apart, never hearing from one another. we found each other again in Classmates. We are now married and very much in love and nothing will seperate us again.

    I really love this poem it touched me because thats how I feel about love. I used to love someone like that but somehow he choose to break my heart in a way I still love him and I know I always will. And your poem got me thinking thats how love is supposed to be, and one day I hope that I will find someone whos gonna love me for me. Thanks and keep on writing and you can inspire people.

    I loved this poem because it reminds me of the relationship I am in now. Me and my boyfriend have went through alot but we are still together and now our love is even stronger! I shared this poem with him and it brought tears to my eyes because he looked at me and told me that his love for me could not be expressed through words and that he loved me deeply. I really hope this poem touched people as much as it touched me.
  • Veronica
    I love this poem because it says so little and means so much in so many ways. I never thought i would find a poem saying exactly how i feel not unless i wrote it myself. I give you mad credit to your work.
  • Elizabeth
    I love this poem as it is so true. When I was looking for love it didn't come and as soon as I stopped believing I found the love of my life and we both feel the same. We knew we were meant to be from the day we met. I have emailed a copy of this poem to my boyfriend as it is special just like what we have!
  • Cindy
    I love this poem a lot too as it really says clearly why and how did I really fall for my current boy friend. To add more my boy friend was also the person who really changed my life (through my character) which my parents really gave up.
