Valentines Day Poem to Boyfriend

When I Found You

© Pauline L. Howard
When I found you
I used to dream that someday I might
find a lover who would be tender, kind,
and passionate...

I used to dream that someone whose
touch would awaken my heart and fill
me with sensations I had only
imagined I would ever feel...

A partner who would show me how love
was meant to be...

I told myself that this was more than
I could hope for-more than I could
ever deserve.

I used to hope that someday I might
have a friend who would know what was
deep inside my heart some one with
whom I would be safe to share my
secrets, my dreams, my fantasies, and
my fears...

A friend I could always count on to
listen and to understand...

I told myself that this was more
than anyone could hope and much more
than I could ever be worthy of...

I never let my heart imagine that I
would find all of this and more...
but that’s what was waiting for me in
your arms.

I found the best friend and the best
lover I could ever have hoped for... When
I found you

Happy Valentine's day
to my dreams come true.
