This love poem for her is written by a guy who is obviously deeply in love with his girlfriend, or wife. He had some horrible things happen in the past that he found hard to overcome when he was alone, but now that he has finally found the woman of his dreams, he realizes he has everything he has ever wanted – his only regret is not meeting her sooner, but that is fine, because he knows he will always have her to turn to and make a bright future together.
What I Have Always Wanted
When you came into my world, you invaded it with your lovely smile and your understanding heart,
And I quietly thought to myself about how different you were from the start.
You listened to my every word and never judged what I had to say,
And even after I was turning away from it all, you didn’t get up and run away.
We developed a relationship filled with trust, with no walls to have to guard.
We both left the past behind us and stepped into the future that was bright, no matter how hard.
You have taught me how to love and I know you have no hidden agenda – you are in love with the real me.
I am writing this so that you can understand
That spending time with you is the best thing in my life and I never want to let go of your hand.
When we are apart, I can’t describe just how much I miss you
But when you’re here, I don’t think you realize just how much better I am.
When we have time apart, I am able to see just what I have always wanted.
I’ve always wanted you in my life.
To hold you.
To kiss you.
To show you the world.
To pick you up when you’re down.
To love you.
It’s you that I have always wanted.
During all of my moments of despair, it’s you I needed to turn to.
A woman that is as beautiful as you,
And kind, and understand, and loving
My only regret is that I didn’t meet you sooner
But as we always say, the past is the past and there’s no use in going back.
The future is what we need to turn to and focus on with each moment
Let’s start today and make each moment we share together overshadow the past
For we have to realize that today, there is no turning back.
I love you.
