A poem on how life can change in ways that you never expected but somehow it ends up being for the best

This Is Where I'm Meant To Be

The candles flickered during the night, we sat there in that restaurant until it was time to leave,
Gazing across the table into each others eyes talking about our lives and how they changed since college,
You told me that you never dated because you were always hoping that fate would bring us together again,
That night you walked me home and I invited you in since it had started to rain.

After that first date we met up again on numerous occasions and each time I never wanted to let you go I was falling hard and fast for you, yet again,
The thought of you leaving me one more time was getting really painful for me to handle alone that I broke down and cried,
You pulled me into your chest promising you were always going to be there for me, I begged you to stay with me that night,
Six years later I'm still happy that you agreed with no arguing or putting up a fight.

It was a few months later after that day that you asked me to move in with you because you wanted to make sure that I was safe,
I never thought that was the real reason; I believed you hated being apart as much as I did,
I heard you call out my name in dreams and each time I'd wrap my arms around you whispering I am here, you'd smile joyfully it was so adorable,
When you slept I whispered that I loved you because I didn't want to be the first to say it but wanted you to know on some level.

It was a cold September evening when you first told me you loved me, we were watching a film when you turned to me and blurted it out,
Then you went all shy and tried walking away but I pulled you back telling you I have always loved you,
You told me how you wished upon shooting stars that I was yours and I told you how I already was,
Then I whispered gently in your ear that I love you too.

We live in perfect harmony and I know this is right where I belong, this is home,
We may not have what other people say we need but we have each other and I love how we remain strong together,
Things can come and go but if you are standing by my side then I know I'll always pull through, even the worst of days can't tear us apart,
This I know to be true because from day one you have always owned my heart.

November, our son was born, two days after our wedding but the pain was so worth it, he looked so much like his daddy that I couldn't stop the tears falling, Luke was finally here,
All those months we spent preparing for his arrival but nothing prepared us for the reality, you aren't told about the unconditional love but in that moment you don't care because everything is perfect,
We grew as parents taught through trial and error on what was wrong and what was right,
Throughout all that we endured our son was turning out to be a gentleman and through the tantrums, tears, heartaches and fights we grew as a family.

On our anniversary we went back to that restaurant where our love story had all begun,
Nothing had changed but us being together this time, the candles still flickered, the music still played, I still got nervous when we spoke,
But then something magical happened, my waters broke and little Gabriella was born on a January morning,
Life was now perfect and I couldn't have asked for a better birthday present than having Luke and Gabby.
