Seems Somehow Possible

…brings me strength and solace whenever my thoughts are focused in your direction. I doubt less. I hope more. My imagination is richer; inspiration grander. Even the near impossible seems somehow possible.

From Winnie The Pooh, the fictional bear created by A. A. Milne
woman and manIf there
ever comes
a day
when we
can’t be
keep me
in your
I’ll stay

What Is Essential

…is in my heart; a smoldering glow keeps me warmer than occasional leaping flames. Loving in peace is richer than passion alone. Harmony in my heart is healthier than turbulence of a jagged love.

French aristocrat, writer, poet, and aviatorAntoine De Saint-Exupery
And now here
is my secret,
a very simple secret;
it is only with the heart
that one
can see rightly,
what is essential
is invisible to the eye.

A Rare and Uncommon Treasure

… of a parent, child or friend is an act of caring and hope for the good of another without expecting something in return. Romantic love at its purest has the same selfless qualities. Such noble adoration is a rare and uncommon treasure.

From the Clever Factory, Inc. book “Sweet Love”
The way you love me
feels like home.
Just the sound of your voice
renews my strength,
as the touch of your hand
settles my soul.
Thank you
for your open arms,
your acceptance
of who I am,
and this limitless freedom
my heart finds in yours.

Hearts Soar With Delight

…amplifies everything! Good times become better. Heartbreak becomes worse. Happiness becomes more joyful. Abandonment becomes utter grief. When those in love are irresponsible, hearts crash in misery. But when loved ones behave with wisdom, hearts soar with delight.

Adapted from a thought written by an author unknown
Every time
I miss you,
a star falls.
So if you ever
look up at the sky
and the stars
are gone,
it’s because
I miss you
too much!

In My Wildest Dreams

…brings hope of going forward with another; ageless ahead into time. Love expands horizons, widens dreams and causes the imagination to conjure thoughts a person would almost never think of alone.

From the song “Wildest Dreams” by Peter Bliss and Todd Cerney
In my wildest dreams,
the hero.
In my darkest
you rescue me,
you save my life.

Without Attempting To Be

…conquers without battle. It overcomes without moving. Love masters without effort. It knows without study. Love inspires without trying. It ‘is’ without attempting to be.

“Whispers of Love” by Rumi (Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī)
Love whispers to my ear,
“Better to be a prey
than a hunter.
Make yourself My fool.
Stop trying to be the sun
and become a speck!
Dwell at My door
and be homeless.
Don’t pretend to be a candle,
be a moth,
so you may taste
the savor of Life
and know the power
hidden in serving”.

The Power of Love

…is the answer to the question: “What is the most powerful force on Earth? Every human and everything he or she does is shaped by love’s abundance or its lack.

From the song “The Power of Love” by Huey Lewis And The News
The power of love is a curious thing,
Make a one man weep,
make another man sing.
Change a hawk to a little white dove,
More than a feeling that’s the power of love.
Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girl’s dream,
Make a bad one good make a wrong one right
Power of love that keeps you home at night.
You don’t need money, don’t take fame
Don’t need no credit card to ride this train.
It’s strong and it’s sudden
and it’s cruel sometimes,
But it might just save your life.
That’s the power of love.

Strong Wind and Gentle Breeze

…can come like a surprising gust of strong wind or may arrive as a familiar soothing and gentle breeze. At its grandest, love feels like both; the desire to have and the desire to give in equal measure; a wish to fully know and be fully known at the same time.

American dancer and actress Joan Crawford
is a fire.
But whether
it is going
to warm
your heart
or burn
your house,
you can
never tell.

Strength In What Remains

…cares not that we come from different places, that our life experience has been different or that we have decades of living already behind us. What matters is how we are alike, what we might share and the amount of life left to be lived in front of us.

English romantic and philosophical poet William Wordsworth
That though the radiance
which was once so bright
be now forever taken
from my sight.
Though nothing
can bring back the hour
of splendor in the grass;
glory in the flower.
We will grieve not,
rather find strength
in what remains behind.

Love Is As Love Does

…shines in a person’s eyes even when it is unspoken. A stranger can tell when love is alive between two people. In the way they look at each other volumes of silent meaning are expressed.

American psychiatrist and best-selling author M. Scott Peck
Love is
as love does.
Love is
an act of will
…both an intention
and an action.
Will also
implies choice.
We do not
have to love.
We choose
to love.
