Valentines Day Poem For Him

I had given up on love, because I kept getting hurt over and over by the guys I dated. The guy I wrote this poem for pursued me for a long time, but I figured he was like the rest so I kept blowing him off even though I was attracted to him. One day I finally decided to give him a chance, so we talked and got to know each other. Now I wish I hadn't pushed him away for so long. He has turned out to be the greatest guy a girl could ask for.

Glad I Met You

At first I wasn't looking for love.
I wanted no one in my life,
for I had totally given up.
All I wanted was to hide.

But for just a moment
I gave you a chance.
I let my guard down,
One last try at romance.

I never imagined that I
would find all this and more.
The best friend and lover,
that one could ever hope for.

A friend I can count on,
to listen and understand.
A lover, for me to hold,
that is truly a good man.

I love when you smile,
and all the things you do.
So I want you to know that
you're my dream come true.

I know in my heart now
that no one else will do.
Happy Valentine's Day Baby
I'm so glad that I met you

I know how it feels to give up on love. I was hurt a lot in my past relationships but then I met my current boyfriend who makes me so happy. It is so easy to be with him and I can share my deepest feelings with him. I love how we can tell each other things that we have never told anybody else before and how he holds me like he never wants to let me go and I feel so safe whenever I am with him and I love how different he is from any other guys that I have dated or known. I know in my heart that he is the one for me no one else. we have been together for 4 months.

This poem is amazing. It is what happened with my fiancé. We met almost 3 years ago but I was dating someone else at the time. He treated me good and made me happy but I didn't see him as a boyfriend. It was after a heartbreak that I decided he deserved a chance and when I opened my heart to him I just fell in love. And now we are happily engaged.

This poem really touched me everything about it totally relates to me.. before I met my boyfriend I wanted to completely give up and this poem just explains everything I went through. Now I found the love of my life and I cannot explain how much I truly love him. This poem just really sums it up for me.

My story is also same. Every time I got hurt in love. The one whom I loved the most could not understand my feelings for him. I gave up but now I do not regret to have my boyfriend. He loves me more than I love him. I am really very happy with him.

This is so me, loved it.
I had my heart broken soo many times that I gave up & instead of just being single I started playing guys for all they had then laugh at them. But then one day out of no where came this guy which I hated at 1st but then . . . Well, let me put it this way, we are still together and don't regret meeting him.
