A Love Story ~ Piglet and Pooh

Today my boyfriend emailed me the below poem. He said it was us, he’s right. I always knew I would meet the love of my life, I just never expected to find him online but I did.

Prior to meeting him I had had a string of casual affairs that were neither particularly happy or healthy. A reflection of where I was at that particular time. I hadn’t had a long term relationship for ten years. My broken heart had been mended a long time before I managed to fix myself, the hypersensitivity, paranoia, depression and mania weren’t so easy to repair. It was only when I was truly happy in myself that I was ready for a relationship. It wasn’t easy and it took time but all the tears and frustrations were worth every second I have now. Words can not express how grateful I am. I really believe that in order to love someone else, and have a healthy and happy relationship, you need to love yourself first. You deserve it, we all do.

Wherever I am, there’s always Pooh,

There’s always Pooh and Me.

Whatever I do, he wants to do,

“Where are you going today?” says Pooh:

“Well, that’s very odd ‘cos I was too.

Let’s go together,” says Pooh, says he.

“Let’s go together,” says Pooh.

“What’s twice eleven?” I said to Pooh.

(“Twice what?” said Pooh to Me.)

“I think it ought to be twenty-two.”

“Just what I think myself,” said Pooh.

“It wasn’t an easy sum to do,

But that’s what it is,” said Pooh, said he.

“That’s what it is,” said Pooh.

“Let’s look for dragons,” I said to Pooh.

“Yes, let’s,” said Pooh to Me.

We crossed the river and found a few-

“Yes, those are dragons all right,” said Pooh.

“As soon as I saw their beaks I knew.

That’s what they are,” said Pooh, said he.

“That’s what they are,” said Pooh.

“Let’s frighten the dragons,” I said to Pooh.

“That’s right,” said Pooh to Me.

“I’m not afraid,” I said to Pooh,

And I held his paw and I shouted “Shoo!

Silly old dragons!”- and off they flew.

“I wasn’t afraid,” said Pooh, said he,

“I’m never afraid with you.”

So wherever I am, there’s always Pooh,

There’s always Pooh and Me.

“What would I do?” I said to Pooh,

“If it wasn’t for you,” and Pooh said: “True,

It isn’t much fun for One, but Two,

Can stick together, says Pooh, says he. “That’s how it is,” says Pooh.
