A New Love
by Naomi Taitano Padua
When I saw you for the first time,
the wall started falling fast.
The pain that had been unending
was thrown into the past.
You turned my way and smiled,
your face, as bright as the sun.
I knew at that very moment
the past was finally done.
You awoken my heart in every way;
like I thought it could never be.
You succeeded in making me smile again;
you set my soul so free.
So, as I face the future
and with you here by my side,
the new me is learning to live again,
and the old me... has finally died.
