Poem: Do I Love You?

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

As I hear the words "I love you"
speaking from my lips,
my heart wonders if it is really true,
Do I love you?

There are moments when I wonder
are my feelings strong enough
to blend my life with yours,
Is this what I really want?

Are you my “prince charming"
the one in a young girl’s dream
my better half, my destiny,
Are you the one for me?

With you, I reach for new desires,
I am a better me,
I challenge myself to succeed,
striving to do my best.

With you, I look forward to each moment,
my smile and tears are real,
I feel magic
when you embrace me in your hugs.

With you, I feel safe,
I want to fall asleep in your arms each night,
to wake up beside you each morning,
to feel our love each day.

With you, I am comfortable
like an old worn out shoe,
knowing these words are real,
“I love you.”
