Contest entry: Love At first sight?

Promp: love at first sight? The first time you met your special someone.

Remember me?
Stumbling down the street.
Eyes down, heart in pieces,
Tears washing away the sorrow.
A world without a family.

Remember blocking my path?
An impenetrable castle you stood.
Unfaltering, unyielding,
Examining me like a lost child.
Pity was not found in that sad gaze.

Remember that touch?
Lifting my head up.
Gentle hands, warm touch,
Electricity running through my body.
Lying whispers hushed.

Remember my answer?
Imploring if I was alright.
Broken, shattered,
I shook my head.
Strong arms wrapping around me.

Remember walking away?
Letting go after an eternity.
Solace found, along with gratitude,
Needing to thank you.
Distance snatching you far too fast.

Remember that day?
Replaying it like a movie.
Unwanted, unforgotten,
Losing a mother forever.
Gaining love for a stranger.
