…has been a healing salve for us. After all that’s happened, the depth of our respect and affection for each other is abundantly clear. I love you Sweetheart and being loved by you is the best thing that ever happened to me.

…does not require me to be in love to feel loved. I can relive good memories of old flames, fall head over heels with a character in a book or find joy in the happiness of others. Only with an already open loving heart can I ever fall in love again.
“Your Kiss” by contemporary poet Shelagh Bullman
Your kiss is like a roller coaster ride up to the stars,
Or dancing on a moonbeam, a rocket trip to Mars;
Your kiss is like a thunderbolt striking to my heart,
Makes my body quiver and my senses fall apart;
Your kiss is like riding on the back of Angels wings,
Flying me over golden meadows, mountains & silver streams:
Your kiss is like a Love song without a single word,
And only in this heart of mine this love song can be heard;
Your kiss to me is Heaven, a Paradise of Love and Laughter,
Let’s kiss amongst the starlit skies for now and ever after.
…is made strong when it is allowed to grow slowly. Like a tree with deep healthy roots, with unhurried development the emotion is made strong and able to hold up under adversity. Love that sprouts quickly is usually just a weed that lives only for single season.
…knows of imperfection, but cares little about it. What is good and virtuous is amplified. Flaws and deficiency are diminished. Through the eyes of love we lift another to their greatest height.
French philosopher & Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
in such a way
as to complete
and fulfill them,
for it alone
and joins them
by what is deepest
…makes no logical sense. It requires believing faithfully in something intangible that carries immense inherent risk. Joy must be far greater than fear for love to flourish.
From “Vanishing Acts” by American writer Jodi Picoult
Love is not an equation,
it is not a contract,
and it is not
a happy ending.
Love is the slate
under the chalk,
that buildings rise,
and the oxygen in the air.
It is the place
you come back to,
where your headed.
…felt today is rooted in the remains of every past love I have known. As a tree decays and makes fertile the ground for new growth, loves gone by lie in broken pieces at the base of my heart so new love has rich fodder to grow in.
Swiss poet and mystic Johann Kasper Lavater
Each heart is a world…
You find within yourself
that you find without.
To know yourself
you have only
to set down
a true statement
of those that ever loved
…reveals and illustrates me truly as I truly am. There is no exhibition greater that can be shown of me than who and what I allow into my heart. To love is to be stripped bare to one’s most fundamental nature for anyone to see.
…and its contradictions and inconsistencies are blissfully maddening. Nothing on Earth is so sought after yet understood so little. It is in loving that humans are best taught the lesson of hope: without love there is no faith and without faith there can be no love.
…is getting photos from you on a far away holiday and reading the words of excitement you have in sharing them with me. One of the best things about loving and being loved is each becomes a witness to the details of the others life.
Author, Artist and Singer-Songwriter Kelli Jae Baeli
The trust and longevity
of a relationship
between two individuals
is established through time
and learning each other,
and discovering a harmony
at the core of their connection.
And it becomes powerful
because of where it resides;
at the center of who we are;
the very essence of our being.
…is a confounding puzzle; a miraculous riddle; an eternal enigma. Yet to thrive the soul must have it. Love: so necessary, so emotionally dangerous and so worth the risk.
