We Are - a Love Poem From Long Ago
When I was eighteen I had a relationship that was powerful and life changing in many regards. I knew we would face some harsh treatment but I was madly in love and I wrote this poem.
Words cannot express what I need to say
Especially when my feelings grow each day
I look deeply into your eyes as you look into mine
That is when we lose track of time
We laugh, we cry, we share it all
We pick up the other if they stumble or fall
We open the door to our soul and our heart
Trusting the other not to tear us apart
Just when I think that I can love no more
I see you and it opens a new door
We give each other so much
A gentle hug or loving touch
It is sad people cannot see
The specialness between you and me
It doesn’t matter what others claim
Our friendship will always remain
It is too special to let go
Because of what others think they know
I know what you feel
I know what you think
I know what you are
You are me, and I am you
We are no longer two
Our souls have joined in an unbreakable bond
Our hearts and souls have become one
We Are…..Each Other.

I was totally engulfed in love for this person and although it didn't work out in the long run I wouldn't change it for the world. Sadly we lost touch with each other too so PJG/PJR if you happen upon this please contact me, I miss you.
I hope to find love like this again and this time have greater wisdom so I can make it last. I miss loving someone unconditionally, losing myself in the moment and feeling like one person not two.
