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

and my heart,
and all the Bees
Which in the clover dwell.

Taken from a poem by an author unknown
The chains

do solely bind
each other’s souls
for all of time.
The chains
are strong
and will
never break;
my hand,
my heart,
my soul

I love…
…that you invite me to do things and don’t always wait for me to ask you. Even when I don’t or can’t do something you’ve invited me to, it always means a lot that you ask.

American writer Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain
To get
the full
value of joy
you must
have someone
to divide
it with.
