True Love Poem

Love Found And Then Lost

The story is about me after experiencing two failed marriages. Any man who has found a true love and then lost her would relate. The words just came to me two years after her passing. Our relationship was very special since we knew each other since we were five years old. We were 63 when we reconnected after graduating from high school 45 years earlier. We were married a year later at age 64, and she passed away in 2018. I am 81 years old.

My One And Only


Published by Family Friend Poems September 2021 with permission of the Author.

Some people search their whole life through,
Most never find it, but then some do.
You may not know it when you see it,
But you will know it when you feel it.

What is it that eludes most everyone,
That's more precious than diamonds or gold?
What it it that men would die for,
But could never be bought or sold?

If you've been lucky enough to find it,
You will know exactly what I mean.
If you are still looking for what I found,
Don't ever give up on your dream.

I found someone having looked all my life.
I found she was hiding in plain sight.
If ever a love was meant to be,
It was the day that she found me.

Almost at once we knew it was true,
Our heads said no but our hearts said do.
So the two became one when no one could see it,
But we knew we had something because we could feel it.

True love for each other was what we had found.
Our lives became one, forever bound.
Her daily smiles, the touch of her hand.
Without saying a word, she made me her man.

And then suddenly one day our dreams were lost.
Our good times were gone like the sun on the frost.
Without her consent she faded away,
With only our eyes talking until her last day.

As she laid on her bed, her hand in mine,
She and I knew it was her time.
Her eyes were closed until her last breath,
Then she opened them wide as to say goodbye and she left.

So when my time finally comes,
I can look back and honestly say,
I got to experience, if for a short time only,
What it was like to be loved by my one and only.
