Poem -

I Held On To A Dream

When I was kid I had me dream to meet a girl and fall In love It was a dream  I carried through child
abuse
For It gave the strength to survive to go on and realise my dream 
many year's would pass by before my dream would become
reality 
​​​​​​For a girl I knew as kid but child abuse had turned me to a recluse to shy to have ever asked her
out
Many years went by till I met her again but I was determined to not let her slip away for she was the only girl that gave me a
chance
we're others  not even glance a chance meeting had bought together again soon after I asked If she'd marry
me
It was then that she told she had always loved me and had no problem saying yes to marrying 
me

Hi Johnny...That is so romantic and shows how fate/God had a hand in being sure  you and Helen got together.  I am so sorry for your past of abuse and the way it made you shy and reclusive...Tragedies and traumas in life can do that to people....I have a similar situation that affected me as a young girl.  I am so glad that you and Helen got your chance and had a life of love together to always keep with you, even as she has passed on....but that love will never die...You will see her again. xo ;)
