I Was Loved


From the moment I felt his eyes on me
To the moment he swore we were meant to be
And in his eyes was affection displayed for all to see
I thought that I was loved

Each night he laid beside me in bed
With his arms tightly wrapped around my head
And rather than sleep, he’d talk with me for hours instead,
I felt that I was loved

Even when his mother despised the sound of my name,
And was so quick to criticize, so eager to blame
Of his love he reassured me and always to my defense came
And I knew that I was loved

Once we even heard our friends say
‘They won’t last together, try though they may’
Giving me a ring, he said ‘this ought to make them pay’
And I was without a doubt that I was loved

Now I have him for the rest of my life
I wake up every morning to ‘Good morning, Wife’
The thought of me without him wounds like a knife
For I understand perfectly how much I am loved.

    like a man smitten by words
    I read through the poet’s thoughts
    falling down from the tip of his tongue
    captivating nearly everyone of the throng

    His dexterity is enchanting
    if not bewitching
    making me to shout to the whole world
    Love is the necessary ingredient for our world

    Let’s love and live
    sending hatred far away like a flying bed
    refusing it accommodation in our lives
    making room for LOVE across dives…………

  5. thank God for the happy ending- i hope all relationships will end like this. good job

    Self love is the most powerful of all…
    This is a beautiful piece, I would love to be loved too… but also, all the assurance for love I need, is the love I have for my self, because when love dies, all I have is me…
