Cupid’s Arrow

Daily Prompt: Cupid’s Arrow

It’s Valentine’s Day, so write an ode to someone or something you love. Bonus points for poetry!

Our first date, first kiss!

Our first date, first kiss!

Last year it was our first Valentine’s Day together and we were both broke at the time but we each wanted to do something nice for the other. The only thing I could think of that wouldn’t cost any money was for me to write him a poem. So I sat at my desk, without internet that was coming in on a regular basis, and promptly looked for some inspiration creative musings through some of the pictures of us. I came across the first picture of us that was taken together. And then I began to write.




My Valentine,

That night I saw you, laughing with your friends,

laughter twinkling in your eyes, genuine from the belly

Kind of laughing, and

I felt like I should know you, or at the least

Get to know you,

You had the most beautiful blue eyes

and you were smiling and friendly,

And my friend says, “Oh that’s David…

He can sing…He’s one of the nicest guys

You’ll ever meet.” And I thought,

I want to meet him. Surprisingly enough,

Me, ask about someone, want to meet them…

Later it would all become clear

I was destined to see you, to meet you.

You were to become the love of my life.

I never knew real love until I knew your love,

You opened my eyes, touched my heart,

Made me laugh on the inside and the out,

Made me want tomorrow and forever. And

I still find myself staring at you

When you’re laughing, or working on something,

or singing and playing your guitar,

And I know that the love I feel for you

Is like no other, you’re the one I waited for,

Hoped for, even when I did not think it possible.

Even when I had no hope I’d ever love or be loved.

My serious, intense person needed you,

Like a flower in the fields needs sunshine,

I needed your laughter, your spirit, your smile.

I need you today, tomorrow and forever,

You’re my funny Valentine.

      Thanks, it was the rough draft, and I’ve never went back and edited it…but he loved it just the way it is so I kept it as is. LOL! Well, I just went back and edited it. ;-) Hope it’s a little better now.
