A Piece On My Profile Picture

That picture isn’t new. In fact, it’s 2 years old.

It was taken the night we went official and my heart became whole.

During the time I had lost someone, thought she was a good friend.

But soon I gained another, a die-hard til the end.

I didn’t know it at the time, but at the same time I did,

That he was the one for this really scared kid.

A sweetheart with grey-blue eyes,

He came and picked me up one night,

A prince charming if ever one existed, he rescued me from my life.

He rescued me from loneliness, from never having love,

He wasn’t a shot in the dark, but a gift from above.

 

During that cold winter — it was  2016 —

There were two people, and something burning in between

Not the kind of burn one gets from mere sexual attraction,

But something deeper, something meaningful, more than a call to action.

I had never been romantic, a one-night stand was all I had,

But there was just something about this bear of a man

That made me regard him in a trustworthy light

That made me see past simple beauty that lay in his eyes.

That made me see a person who was caring and polite,

A person who was raised to treat others right,

A person who was interested in me for all the right reasons,

And a person who could stick around throughout all the seasons.

For the first time in my life…

I believed I had it right.

He rescued me from loneliness, from never having love,

He wasn’t a shot in the dark, but a gift from above.

 

Now, when I look at that girl in the picture of me

I see a girl looking towards her future: hopeful and free.

Heart fluttering with the things that she’s never felt before,

‘Cause now she has a good man whom she wants to know more.

With a reason to smile, she’ll smile, and never quit.

She’ll never have to want for love/attention/care one bit.

This man, a teddy bear, the love of my life,

Turned into my husband, now of two months — time flies!

I know his family, know his friends, know all the pieces of him,

Of the fact I’ll never leave him, any doubt is slim.

In a way, the picture symbolizes a brand new beginning,

How I went from being a nobody to nonstop winning.

He rescued me from loneliness, from never having love,

He wasn’t a shot in the dark, but a gift from above.
