I Thought I Knew Love

True love comes when you least expect it, keep your eyes open.

By MICHELLE SMITHPublished 2 months ago 2 min read

I Thought I knew what love was

Falling for men who were sweet in the beginning and sour at the end

I thought I knew what love was when I was falling for guys who showed a little affection

I thought I knew what love was until I met you

I don't know if this is love but I know it feels true

You've come into my life, opening my eyes

You haven't tried any funny games, could this be just a dream?

I thought I knew what love was until I talked to you

I'd give up everything for a night with you

We talk consistently, your always on my mind

My heart beats a fast run with a smile

I thought I was in love before but now it seems all was false

You seem to be what I've been searching for, my heart cries out

I thought I was in love, I thought I knew what love was

I'm willing to open my heart and never let you run

I thought I was in love before, but this seems like the correct puzzle that fits

You were the missing piece through all of it

I want to be with you forever, but only time knows the end of our story

Answers are coming, hopefully soon

I thought I knew what love was, but I was wrong

Fell for all the wrong men, but now hoping to have found the one

The journey was long but worth it, at the end it brought me to you

I thought I knew what love was until I met you

My heart only belongs to you, I'm falling for you!

We as humans are always so quick to want to find our soulmate, instead of waiting on the right person and timing we rush it all. This causes us to make mistakes of choosing the wrong ones ending in heartbreak. It is okay to wait it out, it is okay to focus on you because when you least expect it your soulmate, the one meant for you sent from God will cross your path. Let God be the one to lead that person to you, don't keep making the same silly mistakes that will end in heartbreak. Learn from those heartbreaks and know that the one truly meant for you won't put you through heartbreak. There will be trials, disagreement, etc. However, it will be worth it because you can overcome anything.
