How I knew one fine day that you were the one? I searched inside myself, asking... "Is this indeed true love? Do I feel the magic of her charms?" Is her embrace as soft as velvet?" I asked myself "Do I feel vulnerable with her? Do I feel... the squeeze of her hand whenever I hold it? Is she but God's greatest gift to me?" You are, my dearest. Your first touch was a slice of heaven; a telling sign you captured a piece of my soul.. I wondered... "Does she reignite my smothered passions? Does she give me a shoulder to lead on? Am I lifted up when I fall like timber?" I asked myself "Does she break me free when I find myself caught in the jaws of life's booby-trap? Does she show me the way out of dead ends?" The answer to every question was yes, my lovely Helen; that's how I knew you were my soulmate, the answer to my prayers Date writted: 01/02/2021
