No matter what, I love you. Nothing can change that. Loving you is the best, most difficult thing I have ever done. I don’t regret a minute of it nor will I ever.

My Darling…
For years I sensed you beyond imagination through every heartache that came; through every disappointment. I’ve been moving in your direction for so long I can no longer remember when your image began to take shape in my heart.

From “The Catastrophic History of You and Me” by Jess Rothenberg 
heart120aI was falling.
Falling through
time and space
and stars and sky
and everything
in between.
I fell for days
and weeks
and what felt like
across lifetimes.
I fell until
I forgot
I was falling.

Sweet One…
Could you be her; “the one” for the rest of my life? Why do I feel this strong pull toward someone I barely know? I am enticed by simply the possibility. Just looking at your photo I find magic in your smile and adventure in your eyes.

From the book “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert
mystery-woman 01Happiness is the consequence
of personal effort.
You fight for it,
strive for it,
insist upon it,
and sometimes even travel
around the world looking for it.
You have to participate relentlessly
in the manifestations
of your own blessings.
And once you have achieved
a state of happiness, you must never
become lax about maintaining it.
You must make a mighty effort
to keep swimming upward
into that happiness forever,
to stay afloat on top of it.”

My love…
I know you are out there somewhere and I’m waiting for you. Sometimes I almost see your face in my dreams. I feel you nearby. You’re every where and no where within reach. Find me…

From “Again the Magic” by Lisa Kleypas
ghost of a woman2I want morning
and noon
and nightfall
with you.
I want your tears,
your smiles,
your kisses…
the smell of your hair,
the taste of your skin,
the touch of your breath
on my face.
I want to see you
in the final hour
of my life…
to lie in your arms
as I take my last breath.

My Love…
Only when living one day at a time is there peace in my heart. When the past begins to haunt or the future asks “what will be” I get lost. In the present there is peace in the love I feel for you. In the “now” my heart thrives.

majd-ujra-lesz-nyar-how-i-love-now-001-587x388Do not think that love
in order to be genuine
has to be extraordinary.
What we need is to love
without getting tired.
Be faithful in
small things
because it is
in them that
your strength lies.

My Darling…
Loving you is not easy sometimes. We are unlike in many ways. 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.

being to love
that is perhaps

My Love…
You were in boyhood dreams. As a teenager I imagined you until you seemed real. Long before we saw each other for the first time, I met you in the fantasies of a man. I’ve been waiting for you for so long…

From “The History of Love: A Novel ” by Nicole Krauss
girl and boyMaybe the first time
you saw her you were ten.
She was standing
in the sun scratching her legs.
Or tracing letters
in the dirt with a stick.
Her hair was being pulled.
Or she was
pulling someone’s hair.
And a part of you
was drawn to her,
and a part of you resisted–
wanting to ride off
on your bicycle,
kick a stone,
remain uncomplicated.
In the same breath you felt
the strength of a man,
and a self-pity that made you
feel small and hurt.
Part of you thought:
Please don’t look at me.
If you don’t,
I can still turn away.
And part of you thought:
Look at me.
