I thought I had lost you forever. It was my fault you turned your back on me; deservedly so. But now that you have found me my world is unexpectedly filled with new possibility. Undeserving as I am, my spirit soars with gratitude.
From “Dear John” by American novelist and screenwriter, Nicholas Sparks
It’s been years now of this weaving back together and then drifting apart. In time, always difficult to keep going, and always far too difficult to ever completely stop. Sometime love just “IS”.
Written by “Unknown” Who Surely Walks the Path I Walk
At some point
you will realize
that you have done
too much for someone,
that the only
next possible step
to do is to stop.
Leave them alone.
It’s not like
you’re giving up,
and it’s not like
you shouldn’t try.
It’s just that you
have to draw the line
What is truly yours
will eventually be yours,
and what is not,
no matter how hard you try,
will never be.
My heart was broken, then shattered again and a third time, and more. I settled. I was hurt by staying where I shouldn’t have. I spent years alone. I learned. I healed. I grew. So by the time you came along I was ready to love and be loved.

In my dreams I’ve seen you turn with your long hair tossing to cover your face. I have felt you, but never sure if close by or far away. You exist, of that I am certain. Will I ever meet you remains the pondered question.
From “Love & Misadventure” by novelist and poet Lang Leav
There is a love I reminisce,
like a seed
I’ve never sown.
Or lips that I am yet to kiss,
not met my own.
Hands that wrap around my wrists,
that feel like home.
I wonder how it is I miss
I’ve never known.
We are a story told long ago to heart and soul. A couple of chapters is all we wrote, though, there is the most unbridled love ever I allowed myself. In that innocence of youth there was such fire, such stars and such passion; never to be forgotten, forevermore.
Journalist and Best Selling Author, Aurora Rose Reynolds
I am connected to you and always will be. We drift apart and come back together, each time a little closer. So many differences and yet so much love. And so we keep trying for each other, even in those times we part.
American photographer, song writer and author Dominic Riccitello
Loving you does not mean I don’t see your faults and shortcomings. Well aware of many, I easily choose not to notice them hardly at all. That I can love you for a thousand things and barely notice a few dozen makes my love for you eternal and true.
From “Born Ready” by Jennifer Elisabeth
The experience of my heart urges caution. My memory says be careful. My spirit says “lean in” and let yourself be known. I hesitate. Yet there is something about you that attracts me like iron to a magnet.
German-born poet, novelist, and painter Hermann Karl Hesse
I knew you only a few months. Life lost us in it’s shuffle. Every so often I’d go searching, hoping to find you… for years and years. Now I’ve found you! Writing and reacquainting brings peace to my soul. I will see you again before long.
Poet and short story writer, Munia Khan
