Falling in Love Poem

This poem is about a special man in my life. He's my inspiration for writing this poem. He's the thought that makes me smile and he's the rhythm that makes my heart beat. I wanted to share a piece of my heart on how beautiful the feeling is of "when love begins" and being able to share that love with that right person...

When Love Begins


Published by Family Friend Poems August 2008 with permission of the Author.

I always knew that love would come find me someday,
but never did I know that it would be you who was headed my way.
You caught me off guard and took me by surprise,
but you simply captivated me, the same way you do when I look into your eyes.

It's true that every good and perfect gift is from above.
You were presented to me as a beautifully packaged gift full of humor, talent, intelligence, beauty and love.
"It isn't finding the perfect person but learning to see an imperfect person perfectly."
We all have our flaws, but when I view you through my eyes, perfection is all I see.

From when you laugh to when you're upset, I still love the little things you do,
especially hearing you laugh and seeing your nose wrinkle the same way mine does. too.
Coming into this relationship has been hard at times, but we've made it through.
I know as long as we're on this journey together, there's nothing that we can't do.

Sometimes I wonder if what we have is too good to be true.
Too scared to get my heart broken and scared of the thought of losing you,
but in the end, I trust in the author and perfecter of what I believe
because what we ask for in Him, we in return shall receive.

"Where your treasure is, your heart will be also" is how the saying goes.
I may not know what tomorrow may bring, for God is the only one who knows.
The one thing I do know is that you are my one and only,
a treasure in my heart that I want to devote my whole life to completely.

I know I don't need to prove my feelings to know they're true
because what I've known in my past doesn't come close to the experience I've shared with you.
I've had the experience of being in relationships before,
however, this is the first time I've been truly happy... I couldn't ask for anything more.
It's an honor to know that I am yours, as you are mine,
and I trust God that He'll bring us together in His beautiful time.

For now, I'll be waiting patiently for that day when we'll be together,
that precious moment in time when I'll say, "It's you that I want to be with forever."
God made everything beautiful, precious and new,
just as beautiful and precious as the day will be, when I look into your eyes and say, "I Love You."

What beautiful words! It made my heart pound and brought tears to my eyes. I've been falling for a man I just met, but we haven't even met yet (in person). We choose to love slowly and not let the world around us push us as we will be ready to meet when the time is right. My heart screams the words every day inside my mind, and I know when the right time happens, the words "I love you" will be so much more than just letters on a page. It will be truth in our hearts, and this summed it up for me. Bravo to the writer. Thank you for sharing.

This poem is really meant for me. Every word represents my present love situation. I never expected this man, but he just suddenly came into my like. I feel like God gave this man to me to see the true colors of life. I really love this man, and he loves me too. We can’t wat for the day to come that we are going to be together. Love became perfect.

Although this is a boyfriend poem, when I read it, all its words seem so true about my lady love, my soul-mate. I met her 32 years back in 1986, when we both were 18. For me it was love at first sight. She reciprocated and I was the happiest person on this planet. She is perfect; I am far from being so! Unfortunately, she got married to someone else and is now living on the opposite side of the planet. We haven't met for many years and we both respect each other's spouses, yet we are so madly in love with each other. Perhaps no one can love anyone like we do. Waiting for us to be together.

I really love this poem; it spoke what my mouth can't. I once met this guy. We accidentally met and didn't expect to fell for each other. We were both 18 years old then. I just fell for him, not because of his looks, kind gestures, and the like, but maybe because of innocence and my eagerness to feel the love, how to be loved and the feeling that you get when you wake up, knowing someone will say the sweetest words that every girl wants to hear. I thought of our future, that someday we would be "one" in the eyes of God, but we ended up departing each other for the reasons of "I have to finish my studies and fulfill my dreams." I hope and pray that one day I will meet a man who will love me for who I am, accept my flaws, and reciprocate my feelings. In God's perfect time.

Some words actually can't be expressed. They can just can be felt by a true lover only! But this poem is carrying all of those emotions actually! It really touched my heart. Well done!

Very heart touching! Indeed true love brings a brighter world. The world that is full of ecstasy. Kudos to the writer. She wrote what is exactly in the minds of every lover. Good job!

This poem is honestly my man and I... I swore off men and then like a heaven-sent, he appeared before me, smiled and took my breath away. I love him so and this poem is yet another perfect find in expressing my truest emotions once more to him.

Omg, I want to know who wrote this! I tear up each time I read this poem cause it's like you're taking words right out of my mouth. It's like you're describing me! Describing what I'm facing and how I feel. It's so beautiful and heart touching. I'm currently making a care package for my long distance sweet heart and I was looking for a message to send to him. I accidentally came upon this and I thought "Wow! Perfect! " Thank you so much. I've changed a bit of the wording, but I have you to thank for putting my feelings to words.

I can't actually say more. Your words have covered all the thoughts that have been wandering inside my mind and heart as well. You basically did it. It feels like you are really living inside of me and you know what's hidden there! I can't say more because simply you have shortened everything into a piece of a beautiful poem.

When I read this poem, I teared up, because everything written in it I have said to my boyfriend, who I know for sure is my soul mate. I've never been so happy with no man in my whole life. I'm a 45 year old female, he is the same age. Hope one day I will become his wife. In love him with all my heart, body, soul and mind. I think about him day in day out.

Hi Florence this poem is absolutely perfect , I am 50 years old and have never in my life sent a poem to anyone. I met my boyfriend on a online dating site and as to this day 2 weeks later I still haven't met him. He started sending me poems and I loved it .Never had that happen to me before. So I decided to send him one and this was the one I sent, he loved it and I consequently have sent him another. It's a absolute amazing way to express your feelings. I know this is my husband and am looking forward to the day I become his wife. Let the glory be to God for putting us together. I love you Lord.

  • Rose by Rose, West Frankfort
  • 13 years ago

This poem means so much to me. It says the words that I won't even dare speak of. There's a girl, who knows I like her. She likes me, too. I'm waiting on the day she comes to her senses, and realizes I'm the one for her. At first, I didn't think I was good enough. I've been there for her, relationship after relationship. I've helped her through all of her break ups. I've helped convince her that she can find better. My shoulder is that of which she cries on. "You will find better," is what I always say. I'm waiting for the day when she realizes, I'm talking about myself. Her eyes are what got me. I'm the type of person who likes darker colored eyes over lighter colored eyes. But, when I saw her eyes, it was the most amazing thing ever. They are the most gorgeous shade of blue. Every time I see her, they seem to be getting even bluer. I've been in not many, but just enough relationships, to know that she's the one. I hope she realizes that.

I felt this way, but I am beginning to think I have lost this one, great poem, because this would have been everything I would love to say to him if he could go back to acting the way he did while we were living together and first married. It is like he was just like the emotions of this poems towards me back then and now I am confused!

This poem just spoke to me and of what I'm going through, in terms of finding my love.

I have found him but I've always been cautious in my relationships. He has been loving and respectful and accommodative of my wishes at all times. But most of all he's been patient.

Thanks Florence, because of you, today I'll be engaged to marry the most wonderful man I know. Today I will look in his eyes and say "I Love You".
