True Love

I've been in love before but never completely gave myself to anyone. I always saved a part of me, kept it tucked away so, if I got hurt, I'd have something to cling to to put myself back together. I was married for 21 years. That ended in divorce. I then met a man I fell in love with. We were together for 6 years yet I didn't fully trust him with all of my heart. I thought I truly loved this man but there was still always something missing. He dumped me to "find himself." I was devastated, yet, I still had that piece of my heart tucked away to pull myself back together. I'm a loving person and knew somewhere out there was a man who I could love and who would love me back. I tried those online dating sites. Some dates were okay but no "sparks." Then I was chatting with an old high school friend, a guy, and I revealed to him I had always had a crush on him but was too shy in high school to ask him out. He revealed that he had felt the same way. We had always been very good friends and since we're  both single, decided to try dating. We discussed the fact that we were already very good friends, had always been there for each other for all of life's ups and downs and maybe it was time to see if there was something more. Well, it's been absolutely amazing. The love we have for each other i beyond words. There are most definitely "sparks." It's as if suddenly, everything makes sense. Our friendship has grown into a love that is truly a forever love. This man has 100% of my heart, no hidden places to save me if it fails. I have finally found the man that "rocks my world" and the thing that makes it even more special is that he feels the same way about me. It's true that when one door closes, another one opens. It's just that I needed the first door slammed in my face before I was ready to open the next. Love is a beautiful thing.
