You don't have to, but it's what you choose.
You see in me what others fail to see:
A heart full of hopes, a heart full of dreams.
The way you look at me makes me feel protected;
In your actions it's also reflected.
You accept and appreciate me for the woman I am:
Telling me in your eyes I'm a gem.
Throughout my life I believed I was my own soul mate.
In struggles I faced, it's how it would translate.
The universe brought me to you, no lie,
And I was proven otherwise.
A true gentleman with a heart of gold:
Something I realized without being told.
Today I stand proudly next to this guy--
Showing me a whole new world through these big brown eyes.

This Poems Story
I have been working as a registered respratory therapist for seven years now. I've also been certified as a hair and makeup artist which I enjoy doing on the side of my full-time profession. What inspired me to write this poem? I met the man of my dreams in spring of 2011. We started dating months later and I never knew a love like this would exist for someone like me. I felt deeply loved, protected and doubt-free, which was a new experience for me. We are now happily married.
