My Better Half


I always knew love will come find me some day
But never did i know that it will be you who is headed my way
You caught me off guard and took me by surprise
Happiness and peace i feel each time i look into your eyes
It's true that every good and perfect gift is from above
Cos you were presented to me packed with beauty and divine love
You are like a dream come true
The moment destiny brought together me and you
You brought light to my dark world
Laying the foundation to my dream world
It isn't finding the perfect person that really matters to me
Cos each time i look into your eyes perfection is all i can see
From when you cry to when you laugh
From when we joke to when we chaff
You made me realised how lucky i am
Finding someone like you who is as precious as a gem
Sometimes i wonder if my feeling towards you is too good to be true
Cos am so scared of the thought of losing you
Being beside you feels just right
And never will i let you out of my sight
For i finally found someone to fill the void in my heart
And make my wall of loneliness to fall apart
Someone to bring me peace of mind
αnd fill the empty spaces in-between the fingers in my hand
A heart to love and hand to hold
Someone to cherish and behold
I may not know what tomorrow may bring
All i just want is for your finger to wear my ring
It's an honour to know that am yours as you are mine
We are connected like the bone to the spine
I don't need to doubt my feelings i know they are true
Cos they led me right in finding you
I want to hold your hand and walk a million mile
Looking at your face starring at your amazing smile
You occupy a special place in my heart
And nothing in this world will make my feelings for you depart
I love you so much to the point of going craze
For you are so special and amazing
I have spent half of my life searching for you
Let me spend the remaining half of it being with you

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
