…the tale continues…
I thought ‘THE ONE’ one would fall straight from heaven,
all perfect and put together.
With nothing amiss;his sole purpose and mission,
to be mine for keeps.
…and because he would be the best of them all,
i would know him when i saw him; recognize him in a heartbeat.
I thought he’d come from a perfect world,
complete with happiness and love,
and no regrets of the past.
I never thought we breathed the same air,
or that he’d experienced hardship in life;
and sometimes had even deemed it unfair.
I’ve now realised that fairytales lied,
they painted him in a different light.
A fool was I to so blindly believe,
that a man would be so perfect as this.
I’m glad I met the man, ‘THE ONE’.
I’m glad my expectations were trumped.
I’m glad he’s as human as can possibly be.
I’m glad that against all odds he chose me.
We’ve all made mistakes,
we’ve all gone astray,
we’ve all had our dreams broken,
we’ve all been betrayed.
We’ve all had our trust misused,
we’ve all had our hearts refused.
Yet still our hope has been renewed,
in love,we’ve had our hearts rekindled.
Its the question that haunts every heart at one point in life. How do you know you have found ‘the one’? So,we were a few months into the relationship,and A.J had asked me a question that had left me dumbfounded. He asked if I thought he was ‘the one’. Suddenly,those two little words became giant hairy beasts,stalking my every thought. I knew i had to give an answer but my face showed a blank,clueless expression. He was smart enough to tell me that i could think it over and give my answer on another date,much to my relief. The thought that A.J might have been ‘the one’ was kinda scary. The reality that he could actually be ‘the one’ was a heavy truth. You know,its so ironic;that every girl dreams of finding THE MAN,but when he actually comes your way,you wonder what to do with him.
I used all forms of critique;from family to friends…heck,i even sought the internet. I knew though,deep within,that i was the one to have the final say. See,for him it went without question;he was sure about me being his ‘one’. This was a great,yet daunting thing to hear. Weeks had turned to months and i knew that soon enough he would be tired of waiting for my answer.
The internet wasn’t all that bad by the way. Infact,i was overwhelmed by the amount of answers i got…”10 signs that you have found the one..” , ”10 ways to know…”
So,yeah it took a while…a long while…i gave it a lot of thought. But then i remembered the peace i had that very moment i said yes,and how that peace had lingered through,months into our relationship. That’s when i knew…
