My Love Story... - Poem by Just Amr

Deep in my heart I always knew
That fairy tales only happen to few
That romance and roses are so very fictional
And that love is blind and lovers… irrational

I also believed that love is fate
And that to find a wife is never too late
I thought destiny handles it all
All you have to do is wait for the call

I know love is wonderful and can do magic
But magic is nothing but a beautiful illusion.
And so often things end in a way.. so tragic
It always leads to a certain confusion.

And it seems to me that life got mad
Of my ignorance and denial
And it proved me wrong and I am glad
I am writing now with a smile :)

The story begins when my heart skipped a beat
And my mind kept picturing how she was very sweet
I stayed many sleepless nights trying to figure out why
My heart ached every time we said goodbye

Days went by and my logic started fading
I spent my days and nights impatiently waiting
To see her face, to listen to her voice
Longing to tell her… 'You are my choice'

Skies started listening and we first talked
The first word, the first stare, then away she walked
That day was when I first knew
I am in love, and it only happens to few

As weeks passed I fell more in love and was more aware
Of how true love has such a wonderful, magical glare.
My life is now colored, no longer black and white
Now I have a motive, a reason for which I will fight

I fell deeper with each passing day,
but tried to hide it in every possible way.
She's only a friend, and nothing else.
That's the lie I kept telling myself.

But how long will I pretend?
Keep lying that she's just a friend?
Perhaps my feelings I can never show.
Perhaps it's wrong for her to know.

Our friendship can't be risked over this,
So being her man is an impossible wish...
That's what my mind chose to accept
Yet my heart seemed to know I will soon regret.

You have lifted me up from a life filled with sorrow
And made me realize there is always a better tomorrow
You brighten my days and lift my spirit
I have felt this for so long.... and now want you to hear it

I couldn't take it anymore….
I had to tell her she is the one, I am longing for
She might go away, thinking I have gone insane
All I know is that I am ready to risk the pain

But she took my heart, freed me of my pain
Became the light in my life, my sweet refrain.
She loved me and even promised she'd stay
Forever with me along the way

Now my little baby is all mine,
and everything is going to be so fine.
One day she will become my wife
And we'd be together all of our life

This is given to you in honor
Of all that we did and do and will share
I just wanted you to know
How much I really do care.

With love
From Me.
