Diego Garibay

When I Was A Child

I remember when I was a child
Waiting for my one true love whom I would someday meet
I knew it would be worth the wait, if not for you my heart would not beat
Now we have met, enough of you I cannot get
I’m constantly thinking of you all the time
You are always on my mind
I would never want to miss a chance with you your one of a kind
Ever the since the first glance I’ve been waiting for my chance
I was never a believer until I met you of love at first sight
Your beauty reminds me of sunset and the morning light
For with you I cannot fight
Your that star in the sky burning every so bright
Now I know our love will be put to the test
But we can only hope for the best
Don’t you see this here you and me
It was meant to be
And if this love is oh-so-true
Then I will always be with you
My love for you will carry on long after my death
I want to be with you until my very last breath
Now I know I found my one true love
Now I know you are that angel sent down to me from above
You are all I could ever dream of.

    diego garibay, i love your poems. you need to look into a career of poetry. you have great potential. 'When i first laid eyes on you' was a classic. this poem though is a classic in epic proportions. i believe you need to be taken into consideration for the Pulitzer Prize.
