The Spirit of You

I love…
…that when you made the bed last Sunday morning you left a card hidden between the sheets for me to find that night at bedtime.

Elizabeth Barrett to Robert Browning June 19, 1846
… the spirit of you
and the influence of you
are always close to my spirit
when it discerns any beauty
or feels any joy;
if I am happy on any day
it is through you…
whether you are absent
or present,
and ever dearest…
