My Dad thinks you’re not good enough for me. My Mother wants me to end up with a girl I have known since kindergarten. My Sister thinks I should end with her best friend. But my mind, heart and soul chose you.
From “This Lullady” by American writer Sarah Dessen
How well I remember the day we met! You had on blue jeans and an old t-shirt with grease all over your face from helping your Dad fix your car. My eyes saw only beauty then, but see it even more now.
From “The Last Song” by novelist and screenwriter Nicholas Sparks
He stared at her,
how on earth
he’d been lucky
Expressing the contents of my heart is difficult, but please don’t let that cause you to misunderstand. Notice closely when my hand touches you or I look into your eyes because it is then my love is most fully expressed.

and the hands
of the heart.
You don’t know it yet, but in your suitcase are hidden a bunch of little hearts. I cut them out for you to find while away. They’re in your backpack too. Every one was carefully secreted away to say “I love you” from a distance.
From “The Gargoyle” by Canadian author, Andrew Davidson
We breathe the same air and inhabit the same space. It has been you and me together for so long I can not remember life any other way, nor do I want to.
From “Wuthering Heights” by novelist and poet Emily Brontë
Be with me always.
Take any form.
Drive me mad!
Only do not
in this abyss,
It is unutterable!
I can not live
without my life!
I can not live
without my soul!
The love I give you is short payment for all you have giveN me. I am so thankful for you. Its been years now. Life is good. We’re stronger than ever. We’re not the same two people as when we started. We’re so much better now.
From “Brida” by Brazilian lyricist and novelist, Paulo Coelho
things you had
never dared even
is the key
of all the mysteries.
Through our ups that never seemed to last long enough and our downs that always lasted too long, I have loved you in a unordinary way. There is nothing common about my feelings for you.
From “Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic and the Domestic” by Esther Perel
Love is a vessel
of the great
luxuries of life:
Marriage is not
it is the beginning.
If you live to be a hundred, I want to be a hundred minus one day. Then I won’t have to live a day without you. The longer we are together the more you are the reason for every breath I take.
From “The Book of Simple Human Truths…” by Molly Friedenfeld
Love and truth
have pure love
and you cannot
have pure truth
I am still the person I was, yet much more. Through loving you the good within is made bigger and faults become smaller. The transformative ability of true love has the power of angels within.
From “Angel of Mine” by Monica, http://lovequotes.symphonyoflove.net
I look at you
looking at me,
Now I know why
the best things
helped me grow.
My determination has always been strong; my will a formidable force. With aim and purpose I sculpted my life to match my desire. Then I discovered something more powerful: loving you. By what is in my heart I’m being made over.
