How Does One Love?

Just a short poem about loving someone. Enjoy!

How Does One Love?
By: Anita Marie

How does one love?
Should we hold hands and kiss under the sun?
Or should we dance under the moonlight having fun?

How does one show that one cares?
By giving gifts worth more than money?
Or by giving quality time and treasured memories?

How does one prove one’s love?
Is it through classic poems and songs of then?
Or the warm hearted surprises that have come to trend?

But most importantly, what is Love?
Is it a feeling of wanting? Of longing? Of belonging to someone?
Or is it more than those mentioned all in one?

In love, there are many questions
But with faith, there are many solutions

How does one love?
Just with one’s heart and soul
Doesn’t really matter how
As long as you know, without a doubt, Love is there

A Good Man

This is an appreciation poem for the person that made my heart flutter for the first time. We met when we were kids then quickly became friends and I, as a kid would do, told him I liked him. It’s embarrassing even until this day and when I finally thought I would never see him again, we kept crossing paths in college. Now that I’m older, I’ve realized that we played each others’ roles in our lives perfectly and his role in mine happens to be being my first love, which I’m thankful for. He grew up to be a good man and I’m happy I didn’t have a bad taste in boys when I was younger. It’s still a cute and happy story to tell.

A Good Man
By: Anita Marie

He was my first love, my puppy love
And he made my first taste of love so wonderful I never hated him
No, to me, he deserved a poem of his own
A beautiful one that highlighted who he was

I don’t have good poems nor stories
But I have the skill of appreciating him cause he is a good man
With hidden ambitions he made himself a name
Self-made, established, and yet humble with his state

You made my heart flutter the first time
It wasn’t because of how you looked like or the way you carried yourself
It was what you did that made me see so clearly
Kindness, discipline, aspects of a good person

When I told you I liked you a lot
I was a child that did things without thinking first and it embarrassed me
You set it aside and went on being my friend
Without giving false hope or animosity

Eventually, we went separate ways
I still remembered back then what a wonderful person you really were
Years of growth had put a distance between ourselves
And we both existed in different dimensions

However, we crossed each other’s path
You made me smile again like I did the first time, the same way you made me
Please don’t get this wrong, I’m not holding on to you
It brought me back to the sweet memories I have

And I just would like to say thank you
For teaching me how to feel and showing an example of a good man
Thank you for being my first taste of sweetness and
Thank you for being there and for being a friend
