When I First Laid Eyes On You - Poem by Diego Garibay

I remember the first time I laid eyes on you
Then and there I knew this love is true
Remember the day we promised that we will be together until the day that we die
I meant it, it was no lie, I fall deeper in love with you as every day goes by
Every time I feel the soft touch of your lips
I step into heaven but only for a glimpse
My love for you is at its peak, you’re the reason my heart still has its beat
Whenever you are present I fell so strong yet so weak
I promise I will always be there
I am the one when you’re scared or cold I’ll be their for you to hold
My heart is full of love ready to explode
I will be there whenever you are in need
Please trust me just take my hand and follow my lead
I will be there whatever the task big or small
I am the one to pick you up whenever you fall
Ever since the start I knew you were the on who held the keys to my heart
I never want us to be apart
Just keep in mind that your one of a kind
Whenever you need help, I don’t care it can be anywhere
I will always be there…

    This poem really touched me, I almost broke down. It reminds me of my high school sweet heart. she was just as you describe in this poem. Her name just so happens to be Summer and we had a good life together. But she died tragically in a car accident about 8 years ago. (Report) Reply
