About the Poem
This is dedicated to a female acquaintance who has touched my life more deeply than she knows. She is one woman who actually sought out the "real me" instead of the outer facade. I sought the same in her, and we now have an unbelievable relationship; simply because we want to learn more about each other every day . . . for the rest of our lives.
Thankfully, You Came to Me
|You came to me when I needed someone . . .
You didn't ask trivial things;
You didn't care about material things.
You were interested in the person first,
Not what I was, but who I was . . .
Not my worth, but my self worth,
Not what I want, what you want, but what we can give to each other . . .
Valued assets like caring, love,
Sincerity, trust and truthfulness . . .
The necessary things for coexistence,
The basis for a relationship, and mutual happiness, beyond forever;
And every day I thank God, that you came to me when I needed someone
