Match.Com



it was two years ago today, that David and I had our first date

At Match.Com, I found you there
a handsome man with silver hair
and gentle way, beyond compare

you were a match
a charming catch
through emails, we became attached

you phoned me and said "lets have lunch"
"sounds great" I said "thanks a bunch"
of romance, I had not a hunch

both looking only for a friend
someone with whom some time to spend
perhaps some lonliness to mend

one look at you, and matters changed
priorities were rearranged
with loving looks, we both exchanged

day and night
it feels so right
the look, the smile, love at first sight

you and me, a pair so rare
a love, a life, a dream we share
for each other, always there

bonded tight, I'll leave you never
through life's storms, we'll cling together
warmth and passion, always...ever

so Match.Com, we sing your praise
you flowered for us, love's bouquet
and set two lonely hearts ablaze

How beautiful the story.
Congratulations to you both.  Love is a rare and precious gift, to be cherished always.

The best treasure in life in my opinion is finding someone to love and one who loves you back. Congrats on finding your rare jewel, Lyra!

I found my girl at WIT.com.
She seemed so right for me.
Now it has dawned on me at last
I didn't see the "T"!!

Lyra, this is great! It's always nice to hear success stories like this and I'm so glad it happened to such a sweet person like you....may it last forever

Duncan...thank you, and yes...I love happy endings too...but.....a philosophical question for you...Does anyone really know when the ending is?


Marge...thank you so very much.  I think we will be happy together "foreverly" if I may borrow a word.

Sy...Thank you very much...I know that David has been one of the only really good things which has come into my life during the past few years...the others being this website and our condo, which we love.  

Bags...thank you, I bet you didn't know that this chipmunk is married to a real teddy bear


Hugs to all of you!!!!!

YAY!!! Oh Lyra, I cried reading this because for one thing, I am so very happy for you and that you found another wonderful man to love after your first one passed away and I know you will be happy forever and ever, and secondly, I cried because I am in love so so so so so much with Joanna, who posts as RosePetal here, and we met here on Passions and we might meet this summer and I dream so so much of making her mine and living a life of happiness with her, so maybe I too can have a dream come true like you have! (kiss on cheek) This is sooooooo beautiful, sweet friend, I love it, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Lyra, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

What a joyous poem Lyra…what a joyous union. Funny how we find love when we least expect it, isn’t it. and it’s so nice to finally see what David looks like…he has a kind and friendly face and is obviously a wonderful man. You’re happiness is infectious and beautiful. Although I’m late, congratulations on your anniversary.
