Relationship Poem

This poem is for a special woman. I took the chance to let her see me for who I am after many failed relationships veiled in mystery. I would only let women know only so much about me because of my insecurities and mistrust which leaves one feeling very unfulfilled and not complete. So I decided to just be totally open and if she either accepted me or rejected me, it was a victory for me because I was honest.

What I Have Been Missing


Published by Family Friend Poems August 2010 with permission of the author.

You invaded my private world with your beautiful smile and understanding heart,
And I thought to myself that you were different right from the very start.
You listened without judgment to what I had to say,
And even after I was done with the good, the bad, the ugly, you still didn't run away.
We developed a friendship with trust, with no walls to build or guard,
We decided to leave the past behind and step into the good that could be no matter our discomfort or how hard.
I've grown to love you with no hidden agenda or false pretense but with only the real me,
Letting you get to know about me what most people never see.
I'm writing this to you for you to understand,
That spending time with you is so precious I never want to let go of your hand.
The time that we spend apart cannot equal when we are together,
I miss you oh too much but when we meet again it will be so much better.
Our time apart for me helps me see that you are what I have for many years been missing in my life,
A woman that is beautiful, and kind, and understanding, and loving, you are the woman
I wished I would have met and been together long ago, and made you my wife.
But the past is the past, and the future is what we do with each moment now,
Let's make each moment we are together count and overshadow the past,
And love like never before because that will be what will forever last.
I love you.
