… multiples joy. When something really good happens to me it feels incomplete until I get to share it with you.

American Poet J. Russell Morrison
There is nothing
more wonderful
in the world
than the feeling
you get from sharing,

…is fertile soil for hope and belief. Upon such things trust can thrive. With you it’s easier than ever before to entrust my deepest thoughts and most profound feelings.

…is coming to know a person better and better while finding the mutual bond continues to grow through all the imperfection and fault discovered. The healthiest love is built on respect for what is admirable and empathy for what is not.

“An Active Noun” by TV personality and writer Fred Rogers
Love isn’t
a state of perfect caring.
It is an active noun

on your shoulder,
hold you
close to me
and answer
with a smile,
“Like this.”

My first love
was a fair girl
With ways
forever new;
And hair
a sunlight
And eyes
a morning
