I Never Believed It Could Happen...
I never believed it could happen, then it happened to me.Bang!
I was 29 at the time and life had not been kind.I had been in a relationship with a man who did not love me,I had two children with him and he had beaten me twice a week because he had drunk all his money away at the pub with his mates, and was now broke and had to 'endure' being at home, putting up with sobriety.
I managed to get away from him, and wound up pregnant with my daughter to a man who ran away.He may have been a ratbag, but at least he cared for his daughter.
I moved away from my home town and worked on improving my life, which turned around and after two years,I moved back and got myself a new flat. The day I moved in, I needed some help with carrying some furniture up the stairs and knocked on my neighbours door.
When it was opened, there was this beautiful creature standing in front of me, and we just stared at each other.When I said hello, he reached out his hand to shake mine, and for no reason, we kissed each other on the cheek.He had flatmates, but I only said hello to them-we could'nt take our eyes off each other.
Needless to say I got help shifting in,and the most beautiful and wondrous relationship began between us.Tentative at first, but then as we got to know each other it felt so natural and comfortable we told each other how we felt. Just so.Like we had known each other for so long and had been trying to find the other.
Sadly, three years later, his father passed away and he had to return to his home in another part of the country, and I could not go with him.The experience changed me for the better, and although I have not heard from him since, my heart knows he is somewhere sleeping under the same stars, thinking about me.
The best thing was that I loved him at first sight and was loved back.
