My dear and faithful friend I have been waiting for you to come along…
I have loved and been loved before, but he love was not strong to weather the storms. I have trusted and been disappointed. Because loyalty was to high a price to command.
I have cried the doubts and worries away. Hoping for the magical moment that would rekindle the flame of love that once was so bright, it filled my very essence.
I lived, I loved, and I died a little each time my love was abandoned, and I was left alone, adrift in this world once again.
Then you came along…
You had lived, loved, and died a little each time your love was abandoned. Set adrift you grew cautious and wary of loves cruel grip.
Then I came along…
When people cruelly say our love won’t last. I can look into their eyes and know in my heart that they are wrong.
I have been waiting for you all my life. It just took awhile for me to get ready, to recognize that you and I are meant to be. We are each other’s soul mate, best friend, lover, and companion for the rest of our lives together. Our love is the true love that we had been waiting all our life to come along.
