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.

I met him in 2014. We were just like the others colleagues of the office. We both really didn't realize when we fell in love. But as you guys have heard, roses always come with the thorns....

Glad I Met You

© Virginnia R Dryver

Published on February 2011

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 met him in 2014. We were just like the others colleagues of the office. We both really didn't realize when we fell in love. But as you guys have heard, roses always come with the thorns. Same thing happened with us. He is married, but we haven't stop liking each other. That love has been turned to a good friendship as we understand we don't have any future together. We always try to make each other laugh. We used to treat each other as a good buddy who used to share their problems with each other. Sometimes we regret why met so late, but what we can do if it was the only destiny? I truly believe love doesn't mean to be always with someone. But it means understanding, sharing, and solving the problem. We understand each other's situation but we never try to cross the limit. We never want to hurt anyone. We truly respect each other. That's why we love each other and are going to love forever.

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.
