So Rare

…begins as “like” and if it grows steady and sure, love takes firm root. It’s possible to love and not like someone, but rarely is this a happy union. A couple who loves and likes one another are true friends and committed lovers.

French romantic composer, Hector Berlioz
happy-coupleIt is so rare…
to find
a complete person,
with a soul,
a heart
and an imagination;
so rare for characters
as ardent and restless
as ours to meet
and to be matched
that I hardly know how
to tell you what happiness
it gives me to know you.
