: : Does the phrase "my one" exist? Many advice not to use "my one" and use "mine" instead.
: Those are two separate issues. Exist? Yes. What many advise?
: Well, many others have used often:
: My One And Only Love lyrics
: The very thought of you makes
: My heart sing
: Like an April breeze
: On the wings of spring
: And you appear in all your splendor
: My one and only love

: The shadows fall
: And spread their mystic charms
: In the hush of night
: While you're in my arms
: I feel your lips so warm and tender
: My one and only love

: The touch of your hand is like heaven
: A heaven that I've never known
: The blush on your cheek
: Whenever I speak
: Tells me that you are my own

: You fill my eager heart with
: Such desire
: Every kiss you give
: Sets my soul on fire
: I give myself in sweet surrender
: My one and only love

: The blush on your cheek
: Whenever I speak
: Tells me that you are my own
: You fill my eager heart with
: Such desire
: Every kiss you give
: Sets my soul on fire
: I give myself in sweet surrender
: My one and only love

: My one and only love

I think "my one" in this sense is a fragment of the phrase "my one and only". If you say "my one" instead of "mine", as in "this gasoline station is my one" you'll sound like a non-native speaker of English.
