You will always have a piece of my heart- a poem about first loves.

Dana Tate has been painting pictures with words from childhood. She has a passion for life and a heart for romance.


First romances don't always end in a fairytale. But no matter where your paths take you, that person will always have a piece of your heart.

When I first saw you, I was in love with another

And then through the years, you and I became lovers.

No stronger love surely, could ever exist.

It's the most beautiful feeling, on this I must insist.

And if years ago, someone told me this would be so

I would have laughed, and calmly, shook my head no.

For the love I feel for you took me completely by surprise.

For yesterday you were my friend, but today you are my life.

And you are:

My confidante.

My backbone.

My comforter through the night.

And you are:

My heart.

My inspiration.

And the apple of my eye.

But sometimes I take you for granted, and I know that this is so.

So I wrote you this poem, so you always will know.

How I love you..

Need you...

Respect, and adore you.

I hope I'll always love you this way.

I hope from me you will never stray.

But I know that life brings changes so,...if we should ever part...

know, that always, and forever, you'll have a piece of my heart.


Love with all your heart, soul and mind.

Being in love is a beautiful thing. The sun shines brighter; the sky looks a little more clearer and the world seems like a wonderful place to be. Love is the most powerful emotion a person can ever experience. The giddy feeling of love doesn't always last forever, but we can fall into a comfortable companionship and friendship that can last forever if, it's cared for and nurtured.

Love cannot be taken for granted it must be respected and treated like the cherished gift that it is. Whether this is your first love or your fiftieth it must be seen and cared for as a rare jewel. Without love the world is a bleak place to be in.

There's a thin line between love and hate.

There's a thin line between love and hate. Love can sour quickly when it's not nurtured or, taken for granted. Most couples don't fall out of love, but fall out of respect. Love is blind and we are willing to put up with little things we don't like in the beginning. The funny thing about love is it changes. It doesn't make sense. There's no reason or rationale to it, it just is.

We can't control love, or who we love because it takes us by surprise. If we could control love most of us would; especially after being hurt the first time around. We would try to moderate it or not love as hard over fear of being hurt. God is His infinite wisdom took the ability to control that out of our hands and so we love.

What does your "ideal love" look like?

Why do you feel some relationships fail?

Why is it so hard to stay in love?

Most people fantasize about love and romance in a fairy tale way, but love is not a fairy tale. They want to stay in love forever and, are unrealistic about the union. Some people are in love with being in love but have no clue how to be in a relationship; so when problems arise they're quick to walk away.

Many people who walk away are searching for something unattainable, which is, perfection. There is no perfect person all relationships takes compromise, sacrifice and respect. Love starts out with passion, but after that fizzles you're at a cross road that either dies or grows into something deeper and lasting. Love can last if it is respected. If it is not respected, no matter how hard you love, eventually it will die.
