Childhood Sweethearts

It was a long time ago
Over 30 years or so
When I looked into his eyes
I just knew I could never let go

I followed his life
And tried to keep close
So that I’d never lose hope
Of being his girl as in my heart I'd know

Sadly, one day he was gone
Disappeared without a trace
That smile, those eyes
That voice that kept me mesmerized

Years went by dreadfully slow
As different stories of my honey were told
Not one got me closer
To my love whom I wanted to hold

But as faith and hope works
Years down the road
At our niece’s party I saw him
And excitedly reacted real bold!

“You’ve always been my favorite”
Were the words I blurted out?
How childish and immature
He’d think of me without a doubt.

“I’ve been in love with you
My entire life,” is what I wanted to say
He asked for my digits and email
On that very same day

Butterflies in my stomach and jittery nerves
I felt as if I were a teenage girl.
So many feelings arose within my being
Will he see me as a woman worth dating?


He spoke about his girlfriend on several occasions
Jealously and admiration
immediately possessed me
But I had to stay focused
And work on my persuasion

She wasn’t a wife,
And I didn’t know her
Secretly in my heart,
I prayed he would be mine.

Much to my surprise
The message came that I so waited for
From that gorgeous kid 30 years ago
That I secretly adored

Little did I know
My lifetime crush, my love
Whom is now a grown man
Had secrets of his own
And of me was more than just a fan.

For days on end
We spoke many hours
Catching up with each other’s past
And we promised one another
Never to lose track again
And build something that would last

Never for one minute did I ever think
Of my honey, my baby to be just a fling
From that very day in January
In my heart I knew he’d be my baby,
The only man I’d want to marry.

So here we are today
Enjoying what a long time ago
Should have been
As in God’s timing
United once again
We are two childhood sweethearts
Promising for life to never let go

“So, I’ve held on tight my love
And have watched our story unfold
As you hold me and kiss me
And together well grow old
We’ve hit bumps on the road
As you once predicted
And plenty of stormy weather
Still to come ahead

But we have made it through
Me and you, this one year
And together hand in hand we will walk, forever”






Dedicated to Our Love, Wilfred & I
