I Can't Believe What I've Found

©

Published: October 2007

I was searching for something,
but I didn't know where to look.
I searched for so long,
and all my time it took.
What was I looking for,
or what was looking for me?
My eyes I kept open,
but I just couldn't see.
It was gnawing at my heart
and ripping through my brain.
I didn't know what was wrong.
I thought I was going insane.
I was tired of looking for something
that I thought was impossible to find.
It was tearing me apart.
I prayed to God to give me a sign.
I waited and waited,
but the sign never came.
Finally, one day it happened.
My heart completely changed
I found what I was looking for,
but I wasn't looking for this.
Am I sure this is what I was looking for?
Or was it something that I missed?
When I looked into the eyes
of this something I thought was fake,
I saw an angel looking back,
and my heart it did take.
This something that I've been looking for
was a true gift from God above.
The missing piece I found was you and your love.

I am 47 years old male, and for a long time I never thought that I would find someone who really loves me. This poem really said what I truly felt, and my lover, he just looked at me with tears in his eyes. He was what I've been looking for, a man that is and has been supportive of me being that I'm now running for public office.
