Loving You by Teresa Smeigh

I just found this poem in a bag. I don’t know if I ever posted it. It is definitely not my best one, but I remember someone asking about true love. I didn’t think I had every felt it and this poem kind of echoes it.


Loving You

by Teresa Smeigh

Loving someone is new to me,

An emotion to explore wholeheartedly.

Love can hurt and love can heal.

Love is something we all should feel.

Love should be the basis to mold our lives.

Caring and sharing so everyone thrives.

Life without love can be very dark.

A lonely existence without much spark.

Now that I have you to love and to hold.

The healing begins, away with the cold.

The darkness that once permeated my being

Is beginning to recede and now I am seeing…

That loving you is the very best thing,

My heart is now open and flourishing.

I love you with all of my heart

And hope that we must not part.

Your love means a lot to me,

But if it is not meant to be….

I want you to know that I won’t regret

Not one single thing since we met.


This relationship did not last and I don’t necessarily feel the way I said I did in the poem. All the men I met wanting long term relationships failed to mention they were already in one. Except for the man I had the 18 year relationship with. He, I knew, was married at the start.

I kept trying to find a real relationship while we were together and he would pull away to allow it to happen, but the men were all liars and married.

There wasn’t even love in my marriage.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
