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.

Albanian Catholic Sister and missionary Mother Teresa

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 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
lovetrustquotesFor one human
being to love
another:
that is perhaps
the most
difficult
of our tasks;
the ultimate,
the last test
and proof,
the work for
which all other
work is but
preparation.

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.

My Darling…
I get afraid at times. I fret that I might love you too much and you might not love me enough. Regardless, I am facing my fears. They are about my past and not about you. With all the love I am capable my heart is open to you.

From the song “Living of Love” by The Avett Brothers
8085402-special-red-heart-on-layers-of-gold-heartsYour heart
says not again;
What kind
of mess
have you
got me in;
But when
the feelings
there,
It can lift
you up a
and take
you anywhere.

My Darling…
I am frequently filled with love more so than ever before. I care so much it scares me. It’s unimaginable now to even consider going on without you. So when I’m afraid I will push myself through my fear by believing in you and our dreams.

Canadian author, journalist and editor Merle Shain
5033861891_b2a1e776fbLoving can
cost a lot
but not loving
always costs more,
and those who
fear to love
often find that
want of love
is an emptiness
that robs
the joy
from life.

My Darling,
Like a thief, silent in the night, you broke me open and stole my heart. My sentence is to love you kindly, tenderly and passionately with understanding and honesty. I can do that.

From the song “Love You Like Crazy” by Mysteryman
m7UzsH5D27Vlim1CdeSjykQIt’s no small thing that I feel,
It’s true and deep and real.
So easy it was for you to steal
My heart; This is the real deal.
I love you like crazy,
I’m so high on you.
I love you like crazy,
I’m mad about you.
I love you like crazy,
I’m alive with you.

My Sweet…
In a moment I was changed and can never be the same again. Now I know you really exist; the one who made my heart jump the first time I saw her. I’m excited. I’m scared. I’m thrilled. I’m afraid. But most of all I am grateful.

From “Carrier of the Mark” by South African writer Leigh Fallon
little_lie_by_la_monalisa-d48pelfThis is going
to sound crazy,
but…
from
the moment
I first
set eyes
on you
I haven’t
been able
to stop
thinking
about you.
