Confused about Love Poem

Lover Becomes Priest

This poem is for my best friend. He's my long time crush and became my first love. We became best friends but not lovers. He is now in the religious life and soon to be a priest.

Heart And Mind

When I met you, my life changed
Don't know when this feeling came
I got out of bed one morning
Shocked about this feeling

It's not right to love you, I know
But I can't force myself to forget you
You gave color to my life
Though I know the time is not right

I told myself to stay away from you
But I can't teach my heart not to love you
This feeling I had for you keeps growing
A reason for me to be afraid of what this could bring

My mind always telling me to let you go
But my heart is always saying "I Love You"
This heart really rules my mind
And that is why I can't stop this feeling inside

Asking God to help me to decide
Which one will I follow, heart or mind?
God has purpose to what I feel
For He only knows about what is real

One thing in common between my heart and mind
Is that they're both saying what is right
My mind is right and so with my heart
But one thing is for sure, you are a part of my Life.

I can relate with this because, the person I developed strong feelings for became a priest. I am so happy that God heard my prayer for him. I had fallen for him unknowingly and it was just strong spiritual love as I was praying for his ministry, just as he was praying for my family and desire for a deep spiritual friendship with this very Holy man of prayer. Just that my mind would get so blank and knees would fall whenever I'd see him and I used to be so afraid that he'd know what was going through my mind. With great difficulty I'd speak to him and the next day we actually opened up to each other about out spiritual lives and would have become good friends, he had to leave. I never saw him again, maybe will never see. I am sad, I cannot even keep friendship with him. But I know God knows what's best for him and for me. Just missing those pure eyes and the smile which I will never forget.

Thank you J Sha for sharing yours, too. Yeah, everything happens for a reason. For sure when time comes that you guys will meet again, friendship will still be there. Keep on praying, be happy.

Falling in love is a wonderful feeling, and when 2 people really love each other, it feels so great, so if you have your lover with you, be grateful because you never know who or when he or she will leave.

Love is a special feeling that I fail to describe. I sometimes feel depressed when thoughts about my ex lover occupy my mind, I sometimes have mixed feelings of joy and sadness. Some say it was infatuation and again some say it was true love, whether or not it was love, it felt good nevertheless.

This poem is amazing. There is this guy at school and he is in grade 9 and I am in grade 8 then I think I am falling for him but anyway I hope we get together just for once. The worst is that he is my best friend's ex-boyfriend.

It's amazing how love happens to all people around the world! I feel the exact same way for this guy I know, I woke up one morning shocked with these feelings I felt, I know it's not right to love him, my mind says 'don't love him' and my heart wants nothing more than to love him. It's so nice to know that I'm not the only one feeling like this! I was so shocked when I saw how much I can relate to this poem, so thanks for posting it!!! :)

Because love is really amazing. Thank you for sharing yours too.
