I remember how kissing you for the first time felt. I put my arms around you and we were a perfect fit. I did not want to let go. Today your kiss still feels as fresh to my lips and letting you out of my arms has never become easy.

Has it really been twenty-six years since we met and fell in love? Our magical time lasted only for about eighteen months, but those old feelings still resonate in me with the beautiful tones of a once in a lifetime love.
You left me long ago. My mistakes were too big for you to forget. It’s been years since I held you or we kissed, but I cherish you as the love of my lifetime. There has been no contender since, nor do I believe there will ever be.
…drove me crazy when I began to fall for you. I had trouble getting to sleep, but could not wait to dream of us each night. Back then even a few days of not seeing you was torture. You became the love of my life.
From “Peony in Love” by American novelist Lisa See

…is magic. Someone asked me what the happiest day of my life was. I closed my eyes and felt a joyful tear run down my face as I thought back to the day when you first told me you loved me.
19th Century Victorian poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning
I love you
not only for
what you are,
but for what
I am when
I am with you.
I love you
not only for
…keeps you close in mind and heart. Although I can no longer reach out and touch you, I feel you close by. As long as I live your life will continue. Long ago I ceased to be able to have any boundary between who I was and am now because of you.
…keeps memories of you fresh in my heart. A man is lucky to feel even once how deeply I felt about you; still do. As long as we live I will never give up hope that one day we will be together again.
…was new those two summers you visited your grandparents for a few weeks. Young as we were, our hearts found love for the first time. Holding hands, hugging and kissing was never more pure and innocent. Remembering stirs my soul.
…is this swelling feeling in my chest when I think of you; it is the sparkle in my soul when I recall spending time with you; it is an inexplicable knowing no one will ever touch me like you; it’s an emotional force stronger than any other I’ve known.
Dialogue from the Fox Network T.V. show “The OC”
I don’t pretend to know
what love is for everyone,
but I can tell you what it is for me;
love is knowing all about someone,
and still wanting to be with them
more than any other person,
love is trusting them enough
to tell them everything
about yourself, including
the things you might be ashamed of,
love is feeling comfortable
and safe with someone,
but still getting weak knees
when they walk into a room
and smile at you.
…that burned once leaves embers in the heart that can last a life time. Sometime if fanned just right the remains can leap into flame once again. Some love comes and goes; some arrives and never departs.
