About the Poem

This is a Poem I wrote for a Man that had stepped into my Life when my world was a dark and lonely place. How can you not fall in Love with such an Angel?? Well I fell in Love with him and although he is the Greatest Man in my Life we are only friends, but yet we act like more. I am confused...But even though he doesn't feel the same way I do. I will Love him anyways.

I Will Love You Anyways

You walked into my Life, when my world was dark and cold,
you held out your arms, and my heart and soul you did hold.
You promised you would never leave, that you would always be there,
I never knew that I meant so much, that my heart was worth enough to care.

You showed me so many things, I started to dream of you every night,
you melted the coldness in my heart, with the warmth of your light.
I ended up falling for you, how could I not -
you're an Angel in disguise, and every touch from you makes my soul hot.

But then you told me it's not the same. for you only think of me as a friend,
I cannot understand this, the wrong messages you did send.
I never knew you bought your friend flowers, and touched them like a lover,
I never knew you held your friends' hand and caressed them under the covers.

I am so far, I cannot turn back now, you are My Best friend,
so what do I do now. I don't know much, except here I am again
in Love with another man who only wants to be my friend.

I'm not sure if this is wrong, then again I don't know what's right,
I will Love You Anyways, even if its a lonely fight.

Your poem moved me to tears. I especially can relate because of a friend that deep inside I love, but he told me he wasnt looking for a girlfriend. It tore me apart because we do things that a couple does. Your poem only reminded me of the pain that I feel. Thank you for such a sweet poem.

I love this poem! I've been looking for a poem that fit my situation and this is perfect. Not only do I love it because I can relate to it, but because it is written so beautifully by someone who lived through my experience. You can feel the thoughts and emotions! wonderful!
angel
BEAUTIFUL! I love it!
Tailie
I really enjoyed this poem. People relate to them as to their life experience. Usually I just enjoy the feelings of how life really is and how senimental we can be. In my case. The man I so love with all of my heart can and will not love me back. It is a hard exceptance. when you share so much with this individual. You poor your heart, intermost secrets, and the one thing you don't share with others. The world as we see it is so complicated, that I often wonder why people can't except something so great in their life. Why can't we deserve a chance as we have given them? Melissa I agree with you whole heartedly. *smile*
Barbra
I think this pome is really good. For i had a guy do the same. But the mane thing is that this pome is one of a kind
