But Then I Met You

Once I loved a girl,
who left me
for another man
and that deceit
I could never understand
and wretched did that pain appear

Once I loved a woman
and her children
who left me
to live with another guy,
without knowing the
reason why
and a life spent in vane
left a lot of pain.

At times love
seemed to be for others
and the worst kind of curse,
but then I met you
and the world changed
and true love enchanted me
and I knew how deep
love could really be.

but then I met you and the world changed....A happy change let it be a lasting change. A well penned poem.
Finding a perfect partner could well be a compensation for all the past heart breaks and sufferings. Here, we find an intense expression of feelings reflecting upheavals in life. Thank you very much, GS.

Life is so mysterious. Nobody really knows what's in store for us in the future, but you're blessed, that's how I saw in this poem. nice! : -)
