Exactly 18 years after my birth

I left home to prove my worth

In my heart I knew there was something I had to find

Yet twas unknown to me in my own mind


Two months after I left

I became the victim of theft

Someone stole from me my very heart

Deep inside my soul I knew, for my new life, this was the start


He was truly all I’d ever sought

I knew this time love was not all for naught

I soon realized he was what I needed to find you see

That ultimately he was my destiny

Another one written to Steve. I didnt marry him (thank god) but I used his last name when signing my name so I continued to use it in my poems to this day. Even though we don't talk anymore.
