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…
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…

“It’s All I Have To Bring Today ” American Poet Emily Dickinson

and my heart beside –
and my heart,
and all the fields –
And all the meadows wide –
Be sure you count –
should I forget
Someone the sum could tell –
and my heart,
and all the Bees
Which in the clover dwell.

…knows no master. It is the sole sovereign of a heart. Willingly one becomes its captive and gladly serves its needs. No bondage is more sought after. No chains are more happily received.

Taken from a poem by an author unknown
The chains
of a heart
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
to take.

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.
