Falling in Love Poem

This poem is about a special man in my life. He's my inspiration for writing this poem. He's the thought that makes me smile and he's the rhythm that makes my heart beat. I wanted to share a piece of my heart on how beautiful the feeling is of "when love begins" and being able to share that love with that right person...

When Love Begins

I always knew that love would come find me someday
but never did I know that it would be you who was headed my way
you caught me off guard and took me by surprise
but you simply captivated me, the same way you do when I look into your eyes

It's true that every good and perfect gift is from above
you were presented to me as a beautifully packaged gift full of humor, talent, intelligence, beauty and love
"it isn't finding the perfect person but learning to see an imperfect person perfectly"
we all have our flaws but when I view you through my eyes, perfection is all I see

From when you laugh to when you're upset, I still love the little things you do
especially hearing you laugh and seeing your nose wrinkle the same way mine does too
coming into this relationship has been hard at times but we've made it through
I know as long as we're on this journey together, there's nothing that we can't do.

Sometimes I wonder if what we have is too good to be true
too scared to get my heart broken and scared of the thought of losing you
but in the end, I trust in the author and perfecter of what I believe
because what we ask for in Him, we in return shall receive

"Where your treasure is, your heart will be also" is how the saying goes
I may not know what tomorrow may bring, for God is the only one who knows
the one thing I do know is that you are my one and only
a treasure in my heart that I want to devote my whole life to completely

I know I don't need to prove my feelings to know they're true
because what I've known in my past, doesn't come close to the experience I've shared with you
I've had the experience of being in relationships before
however, this is the first time I've been truly happy... I couldn't ask for anything more
it's an honor to know that I am yours, as you are mine
and I trust God that He'll bring us together in His beautiful time

For now, I'll be waiting patiently for that day when we'll be together
that precious moment in time when I'll say, "it's you that I want to be with forever"
God made everything beautiful, precious and new
just as beautiful and precious as the day will be, when I look into your eyes and say, "I Love You"

  • This poem just spoke to me and of what I'm going through, in terms of finding my love.

    I have found him but I've always been cautious in my relationships. He has been loving and respectful and accommodative of my wishes at all times. But most of all he's been patient.

    Thanks Florence, because of you, today I'll be engaged to marry the most wonderful man I know. Today I will look in his eyes and say "I Love You".

  • I felt this way, but I am beginning to think I have lost this one, great poem, because this would have been everything I would love to say to him if he could go back to acting the way he did while we were living together and first married. It is like he was just like the emotions of this poems towards me back then and now I am confused!

  • This poem means so much to me. It says the words that I won't even dare speak of. There's a girl, who knows I like her. She likes me, too. I'm waiting on the day she comes to her senses, and realizes I'm the one for her. At first, I didn't think I was good enough. I've been there for her, relationship after relationship. I've helped her through all of her break ups. I've helped convince her that she can find better. My shoulder is that of which she cries on. "You will find better," is what I always say. I'm waiting for the day when she realizes, I'm talking about myself. Her eyes are what got me. I'm the type of person who likes darker colored eyes over lighter colored eyes. But, when I saw her eyes, it was the most amazing thing ever. They are the most gorgeous shade of blue. Every time I see her, they seem to be getting even bluer. I've been in not many, but just enough relationships, to know that she's the one. I hope she realizes that.

  • Hi Florence this poem is absolutely perfect , I am 50 years old and have never in my life sent a poem to anyone. I met my boyfriend on a online dating site and as to this day 2 weeks later I still haven't met him. He started sending me poems and I loved it .Never had that happen to me before. So I decided to send him one and this was the one I sent, he loved it and I consequently have sent him another. It's a absolute amazing way to express your feelings. I know this is my husband and am looking forward to the day I become his wife. Let the glory be to God for putting us together. I love you Lord.

I've never met someone so perfect in every way possible.

He motivates me and makes me feel alive again... I love him so much and that you for sharing this poem so I can tell him how I truly feel. and that in time God will let us be together forever
