The Quiet Voice

I love…
…how you keep a good attitude even when things are bothering you.  One of the few good things about all the difficulty you have endured is how it made you strong and taught you how to keep going no matter what.

Thought by Mary Anne Radmacher
Doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage
Is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying
“I will try again tomorrow.”

Beauty Beyond Memory

I love…
…how dedicated you are to your aged Mother and Father. Even though they have never been good at expressing their love for you, to them you express your love openly.

From “Beauty Beyond Memory” by Hamzah Gani
When I lose my charm and my glamour
When I lose my physique and my game
When I’m old and wrinkly
When memories fade
When I forget the days of the week
And the months of the year
When I mix names and faces
The memory of you
Will always shine bright and clear.

The Child In Me

I love…
…that you know my dark secrets but understand the past is past.  I am grateful you see what happen before we met as irrelevant to the present. 

“The Child In Him” by Jean Gabor
I loved the child in him
so innocent and sweet
The mischief in his eyes
the blush upon his cheek
The tender way he spoke
that showed me that he cared
The touch of his warm hand
that gently touched my hair
The smiles that we shared
that filled my life with glee
For when I was with him
I found the child in me

Soft as a Summer Rain

I love…
…how you patiently wait for me during the days and sometime weeks when we are apart. Time separated is delectable agony for me.

From “Your Kiss” by Lamar Cole

Your kiss is sweet as a candy cane.
Soft as a summer rain.

Soothing as a soft pillow.
Free as a weeping willow.

Sweet as honey.
More precious than money.

Wet as a winter snow.

One That Heals It

I love…
…that it seems like we have been together for a long time, yet went out for the first time only a few weeks ago.  What we share feels resilient and durable, yet robust and new.
From “At First Sight” by Nicholas Sparks
The emotion
that can
your heart
is sometimes
the very one
that heals it…

Somewhere There’s Someone

I love…
…how you are able to give me space and yet never be far away.  It is a comforting balance I cherish. 
Author  Unknown
Somewhere there’s someone
Who dreams of your smile,
And finds in your presence
That life is worth while.
So when you are lonely,
Remember it’s true
Somebody, somewhere
Is thinking of you.

Love Come Through

I love…
…your responsible and industrious ways.  You always keep your word and are  conscientious, yet extravagant in showing how much you care about me.   
From “Love Comes Through” by Nicholas Gordon
Love comes through the eyes that see
And through the ears that hear,
For people are quite beautiful,
And words make feelings clear.
But though love comes through senses five,
Love comes from the heart,
For there resides the greater love
Of which ours is a part.
