Love At First Sight


Published by Family Friend Poems July 2006 with permission of the Author.

When first we touched,
My heart flew high,
On gossamer wings through a cloudless sky.
They said it was built upon a lie.
They told me my feelings would surely fade.
Passion would flare, and foes would be made.
Can you not put the past behind?
True love can change a river's course
Or pierce the strongest vault with ease.
True love can turn coal into gold
Or tame the tempest to a balmy breeze.
Quite some time has passed since then:
People no longer criticize.
For now they see that truth exists
Where once there might have been only lies.
Still my feelings are the same today
As they were on that very first,
For when we touch, my heart still flies on gossamer wings through cloudless skies.

I hope this will be my love forever because I don't want to lose him. I don't know what he does, but every time he looks at me, I forget everything I was thinking. I always find myself sinking into his eyes with his every smile lighting the whole of me. I love you, Héritier. I know you will never see this, but at least after so many years when we will be dead, my love for you will be written somewhere - still new as the first time I saw you.

Do you remember the 7th day of September 2013 ending summer?
We had sparkle of rain falling through our skins, I could watch the clouds chasing themselves.
And suddenly I saw you across the sky and my heart fluttered with butterflies.
Then you came towards me, and the rain falling through your face showed the beauty inside of you. I felt for you in no way I could describe , yes on that September 07 love meant something for me.
Our hearts were ringing, in the key that our souls were singing.
And we knew love will love to sing our song, to give us the key to unlock our hearts and souls.
Now November found the love we shared in September.
We still holding hands and my thoughts are still with you .

When I saw you across the sky, my heart fluttered with butterflies. I couldn't believe you're finally here, so I cross the stream to bring you near. As I cross, you're waiting there. Your arms open to pick me up. As I gather closer by, my heart won't hide that love at first sight. You pick me up, and I feel like your heart pulled me in. As we kiss, we become one...15 years later, my heart is still yours. We still share the same first sight love as we did back then. We both felt it, and it is very real.

I saw her. Bright eyes and a ray of sunshine. The clouds must've been out this day, as it was winter, but my sight was brightened by your gaze, by your allure. It might as well have been at night with no light in sight and still all I'd see is you.

Love at first sight is a feeling I couldn't fight. It hurt a lot. Destiny itself knows that I couldn't be the man to stay at your side, for I was weak. It hurt a lot more when I didn't have the motive to seize it. I was weak and afraid. It was only fair to let go and let the pain flow and pierce my heart. Letting it go so you can live your life to the fullest. I don't want to drag you down.

When I saw you at the very beginning I knew that I had fallen for you...after a few days I can't drag my eyes off of you. I don't know what I should do to make my feelings go away, but no...I can't. I can't get you out of my mind because my feelings for you are real. It's like I'm addicted to you. Every day that I don't see you is like a disaster, a nightmare...but when I see you and look into your eyes, it's like a dream come true...and after you read this, I wish that you would love me, too.

Reminds me of my first love. Everything seemed so perfect then, and I guess we both thought so..but everything changed and we broke up. I cried inside for days. I guess the saying "your first love is not always your truest love" is true after all.

I was madly in love with her, but unfortunately we can't get married, and now I cry every day for her. Love is killing me mentally and physically...
