I Love You

by MissMeg

The day I needed someone most,
I turned and saw you there.
I opened up and let you in.
Even though deep down I was scared.

I was such a mess.
My life had fallen apart,
But slowly- piece by piece,
You put together my broken heart.

Even though I swore I'd had it,
I would never love again,
Deep in my heart I knew,
You were more than just "my best friend."

I don't know what i would do without you,
Or if I'd even be here today.
I pray that you will never leave
And with me you'll always stay.

Because I love having you by my side.
I no longer feel alone.
I never want to be without you,
For my heart has found its home.

I love you.

Meg, another elegantly written piece.

The day I needed someone most,

I opened up and let you in.
Even though deep down I was scared.

I love this opening part. It's funny really how when we need someone that they are just kind of there. It's good to open up even if scared because then at least we're being honest.

I was such a mess.
My life had fallen apart,
But slowly- piece by piece,
You put together my broken heart.
^^
The image here of him piece your heart back together piece by piece is beautiful. It shows he took time on you m, to love you through your insecurities.

Even though I swore I'd had it,
I would never love again,
Deep in my heart I knew,
You were more than just "my best friend."

None of us want to admit falling 'in love' again when we've been broken because that way if it happens again we won't be as hurt.

I don't know what i would do without you,
Or if I'd even be here today.
I pray that you will never leave
And with me you'll always stay.

Isn't it kind of funny that when we have fallen in love we wouldn't now what to do without that person yet before we met them m, we survived. Love it works in mysterious ways.

Because I love having you by my side.
I no longer feel alone.
I never want to be without you,
For my heart has found its home.
^^
Love this last stanza because after hurting for so long and wondering if you should love again, here you are with a new love that you don't want go lose site of because it's your home.

I love you.
^^
A blunt yet true statement of love.

Great write that many can relate to, Em
