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.

The days come and go quickly. I wish more of each one was spent with you. Living separate lives is becoming more and more challenging. Spending nights without you is sometimes almost unbearably difficult.
From “Winnie-the-Pooh” by A. A. Milne
to be apart
for so long.
we can be
all the time.

Are you ready for our first dance class together tonight? I love doing new and different things with you. Now more than ever before I want to live life well in its full variety and splendor. I want to do everything with you!

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

We’re very different but a great match. Day by day we grow closer and fall deeper into “like” and “love”. We’re no longer complete apart. You plus me is far more than one plus one.
Adapted from the poem “Take the Chance” by Teseth
Here are the words
That you long to know
I need you, I love you,
I won’t let you go.
Here are the words
That I long to feel
You need me, you want me
Your love is for real.
To share our true thoughts
We both now must choose
To share all of ourselves;
It’s win or lose.
We’ll both reap rewards
If we just take the chance;
What a remarkable life
You, me, and romance.

True love like ours is humbling, exciting and frightening: humbling to realize the magnitude of the rare gift we share; exciting to comprehend the blessing of sharing our lives; frightening at the possibility of losing you.

Swear you’re mine and then tell me again and again. I’ll reply with “I love you” echoed back a million times. “Forever and always” is this rare variety of love we have been blessed with.
From “Whenever, Wherever” by Shakira/Tim Mitchell/Gloria Estefan
to be together…
I’ll be there
and you’ll be near…
You’ve got me
head over heels..
have to wonder…
left to fear…
