To My Love
by Carl Kramer


So cold and dark, so empty and alone,
never knowing what real love was.
So fragile and closed, so hateful and cruel,
never to open my heart to anyone.

And then there was you.

So scared, so new,not knowing what was to come.
I gave you what little I had left.
Hoping that you would want me the way I am.
Timid and frightened, wanting to love again.

And then there was you.

A little relief from the beating that my heart took, trying to remember what it was like.
You showed me that it was real and true.
Your touch so gentle, you saw right through.

All the pain and distrust disappeared that day the love consumed me.
Felt so perfect, so right.
Still hesitant to let anyone see who I really was.

And then there was you.

Believing in me, trusting me, loving me unconditionally.
Letting go of all the fear, anger, and regret.
Knowing that it's ok just to be who I am.
Crying, laughing, talking, sharing emotions that I tried to hide for so long.

All because there was you.


This was written by my husband. He really is a great man. We've been through so much, but each day we get stronger.
