Why is it that the sound of your voice makes me smile,
And forget my worries for just a little while.
The touch of your hands make me loose control,
At some point in my life my heart you stole.
You're on my mind every single day,
wanting to please you in every way.
You're on my mind even when I'm mad at you,
The thought of your smile is what gets me through.
Could you be the one that was destined to find me,
Are you my true love created to last for eternity?
Is it you? I'm scared to stick around to find out the answer,
Because once you've been hurt the pain spreads fast like cancer.
So I'm scared, confused and nervous at times,
my mind keeps racing on the thought of if you're suppose to be mine.
With you I think so but I don't want to jump ahead of the game,
the one thing I've learned in this life is that hurt has no name.
but how will I know that it's real without sacraficing myself,
I've lost some things in my life but I'm willing to give you what I have left.
Which is my heart that I have locked, but I take the chance on giving you the key,
Because deep down I feel that God created you just for me!

I was married for 14 years and I tried with everything in me 
to make my marriage work but that was not in the plan for my life. 
So I filed for a divorce and when I thought it wasn't safe to love again 
I met my friend and companion and I wrote this poem just for him.
