When you’re grumpy or withdrawn, I love you. When you don’t feel good or work gets you down, I love you. When you don’t pay attention to me or express your feelings, I love you. It doesn’t matter! Always I love you just as you are.

To heck with the world and those who don’t believe in us. What people think of us together is none of our business. If the naysayers paid more attention they’d see the miracle our love is.
Some mornings start with me I am convinced we’ll be together as long as we both live. Other days I wake up feeling like we’re living on borrowed time. No matter. I love you madly, completely and with all my being.
I promise I’ll stay with you in the toughest of times, even those when you’re not sure you want to be with me or when there are questions about you in my heart. NOTHING can stop my commitment to you.
Love is patient
love is deliberate.
Love is hard.
Love is pain
How much do you love me? Is it enough to make me the center of your life? Can you take care of me, be kind and give me your all? You are at the very core of my heart. Will you put me be at the center of what fills your heart?
Going through love’s difficult times can shape a relationship to a beautiful reflection or shatter it into pieces that never fit again. Trouble can bring out the best or worst in us. Which one will be decided by our choices and actions.
American poet and author Coco J. Ginger
I love you,
with no beginning,
I love you as you
an extra necessary
organ in my body.
I love you as only a girl
could love a boy.
Wanting nothing in return,
except that you allow me
to keep you here in my heart,
that I may always know
your strength, your eyes,
and your spirit…
It’s the ups and downs that continue to prove our love. Whatever challenges come, we work through them quickly because we want to; because we need to; and because our love is cherished and held highly valuable by both of us.
Indian poet and greeting card verse writer Ritu Ghatourey
Love isn’t always perfect.
It isn’t a fairytale or a storybook
and it doesn’t always come easy.
Love is overcoming obstacles,
facing challenges, fighting
to be together, holding on
and never letting go.
It is a short word,
easy to spell, difficult to define, a
nd impossible to live without.
Love is work, but most of all,
love is realizing that every hour,
every minute, every second
of it was worth it because
you did it together.
Loving you is not easy sometimes. We are very different. I knew from the start there would be challenges. Just know the place you have in my heart is permanent and I’ll walk with you through anything. I love you.
Bohemian-Austrian poet and novelist Rainer Maria Rilke
For one human
being to love
that is perhaps
of our tasks;
the last test
the work for
which all other
work is but
“This is not my first rodeo”, but I hope my last. Searching for perfect love meant what I desired was out of reach. You came along unexpectedly and are outside what I thought I wanted, but you’re PERFECT for me. Love wins.. finally.

On one side, there’s the peaceful kind of love; the one that offers stability, comfort, and security. There are fights included, of course, but minor and infrequent ones. It’s mostly a soothing, tender love that dominates the relationship. And you think that’s all you want and need, until… You discover a different side. It’s almost foreign to you and completely unlike the usual, stable type of feelings you get with that other person…but that’s precisely what makes it appealing. A rush. An unknown adventure, inviting you in to discover it. Then it becomes a problem. The tranquility of spotting your lucky bracelet vs the excitement of unfolding a new gift. The boring vs the new, Truth vs passion. Which in the end translates to love vs lust. And what sets them apart, is that love is always worth it.
A logical man would fear loving you as I do; an overly sensible one would pick at the uncertainties till our romance was bleached clean of its goodness. Love is not supposed to make sense. When most irrational, is when it’s real!
From “Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life…” by Steve Maraboli
kind of love
the same time…
all the sense
in the world…
That is us…
You and me;
