About the Poem

This is about me and my girlfriend, who I love very much. It's kind of looking at our future, but I mean it just as much now. Our relationship is one of the best things in my life, and I tried to express that. I love her with all my heart.

Once In My Life

Once in my life I was lost,
I lived my life in the dark.
constant trials, problems, pain,
I fought my battles on my own.
But then you came, and lit my life,
and your light washed the darkness away.
Once I believed in nothing,
now I believe in us.
We'll face our trials together now,
never be alone again,
a bond, forged in love,
not to be broken by jealousy, anger, or spite.
If I know only one thing, its that I love you.
For as long as we live, we can live for each other,
twice as strong together than we ever were apart.
If you know only one thing my love,
know you'll always have my heart.

I've read so many poems on this site, but yours really grabbed me. It expressed exactly what I feel. It made my eyes well up with tears because I am going through a hard time with my boyfriend, and these are the simple words I wanted to tell him, but couldn't dictate on my own. Thank you for being my words.

I find it hard at times to relate to love poems. They never seem to say exactly what I am feeling. This poem did just that. I thank the writer for letting me share it with him
