A Toast To Forever

© more by Josh Mertens

Published: October 2013

You're the one I can't live without.
This fact is true, I have no doubt.
I love the way you smile at me.
I love the way together we're free.
You may be strange and slightly loony,
But all this means nothing to me
Because you are who you are,
And I can see your beauty
Inside and out,
Which is what threw me.

When every day I see you
Till then I cannot wait.
To know what we will go through
Are in the hands of fate.
The first time that I saw you,
I knew I must steal your heart.
I hope that it's mine forever
And that we never do part.

You are the one I love the most,
And to this here fact I propose a toast;
May we grow old and still have fun
Because I love you and my heart you've won.

I've been with my girlfriend with a short while now but I love her with all my heart and I wanted to show her in a way that wasn't just saying it. So I looked up poetry because it was the first thing I thought of. Since I wasn't next to her at the time of finding the poem, I just sent it to her and she told me that it made her cry. This poem really expresses how I feel for her. And I thank the creator sincerely.

I have met this girl on a game I play daily and she is from France and I have seen a picture of her that she sent me and I was falling for her from that moment. I can't think of anything else since I saw her and we started to talk on Skype. She is so kind and sweet and all I can think is that I want her for rest of my life. I hope one day I will be able to make my wish come true.

We've been in a relationship for 10 months now but we never saw each other in personal but only through skype. She means a lot to me and I can't wait to see her, to touch her, to feel her gentle hands, give her a warm hug, and a kiss that she'll never forget. I want to live with her but she's miles and miles away from me. I hope someday all my hopes and sacrifices will be worth it. <3

Love is a fragile thing,
Like a broken wing.
You can mend but not comprehend,
My love for you my friend.
It's like you walk in starlight,
A million shimmering diamonds.
If only you had a glimpse,
Of my love for you.

I've met this guy long ago. He was the one that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. But I waited a long time for. He asked me out two years ago. Then he broke up with me The one Valentine's Day. Then He asked me out on the 8th of October that same year and I said yes. So ever since then we are still together and most of these poems reminds me of how wonderful he is to me. He also means so much to me. I love him so much that he is my soulmate.

I sent a friend request to a girl on Facebook. When I first saw her profile pic I became mad for her. Looks like I had seen an angel on earth but I humbly asked it is really yours pic. Then she said yes then I was finding more about her I found that she is vocalist. And then I admired her for that. She is smart in intelligence, brilliance in looks, and plus she has great voice, she writes beautiful story. And that all made her my dream girl. I began to fall in love with her. I told her this poem and she promised me that she would also love me.

I met this girl in Texas and well I thought she looked beautiful. Well I didn't have the guts to tell her this face to face. But I was her friends friend. So we started talking and well even when I liked this other girl I saw myself with her. Then we started talking and we dated. Yet I still love her always and forever. We tried three times and well we are trying again. Cause hopefully she thinks I'm her one. Cause I know she's the one for me. Even though your miles away I will always love you no matter what.

Last year I came to varsity, met this girl. We became close with no hint that one day, I'd fall for her, we became friends on Facebook and whatsapp, met a couple of times. There were some classes we were attending together so she used to cover up for me, sign for me when I couldn't make it to class, take my test scripts etc. last year she had a boyfriend that broke her heart, she told me everything and I think I tried my best to listen to her sorrows. She burnt everything in the past and has done pretty good. Now here's what I didn't really tell you, I fell in love with this girl a long time ago, it was the first time that I saw her but couldn't do much about it until I finally decided to speak my heart to her, I did that but she hasn't said yes, she's a bit confused but I won't stop trying. This is the only girl I love, she has that special thing in her that I can't explain, she's so beautiful, so open, fun, down to earth and I can tell she has the heart to love.
