The Other Half of Me

When I was young and thought of life

And all that it could be

I knew I had to find

The other half of me.

Everywhere I searched

And all the places I did see

And still I could not find

The other half of me.

I searched high and low

Above and beyond

I found many hearts

Of which I was fond.

But they could not compare

To the one I had not seen

For still I had not found the other half of me.

Then you came along one day

And stole away my heart

Resistance was futile

Even from the start.

So now I’m at this place in time

And the answer came to me

That I need not seek again

For the other half of me.

One day I was on the internet and saw a website where I could enter a poetry contest.  I figured what the heck, why not?  On the spot, I created this poem.  I got stuff in the mail saying I was nominated for the 2005 Poet of the Year Award.  I didn’t win, But I thought this would be a great poem for my future wife.  Once I finally found her, I dedicated this poem to her.  I love you Jen!!
