… is not as simple as “I love you”. Those three words are an absolutely true statement about what I feel, but there is much more. I like you. I respect you. I believe in you. I admire you. I trust you. And more…

French Romantic composer Hector Berlioz
It 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 together,
that I hardly know
how to tell you
what happiness
it gives me to know you.

… Love is a sense that comes without doubt and question; a simple, but certain knowing. There is graceful comfort in knowing there is true love in your heart for me.

Contemporary Italian writer C. Joybell C.
We have to allow ourselves to be loved
by the people who really love us,
the people who really matter.
Too much of the time,
we are blinded by our own pursuits
of people to love us,
people that don’t even matter,
while all… the people who do love us
have to stand on the sidewalk
and watch us beg in the streets!
It’s time to put an end to this.
It’s time for us to let ourselves be loved.

…is the peace of mind from knowing you will be there to help if I ask. Whether for ten minutes, a whole day or longer I know without doubt I can depend on you.

Taken from a poem of an unknown original source
I know that I can always count on you
To be there when I need someone
To give their best advice.
I know that I can always count on you
When I need someone
To help me make things right.
I know that I can always count on you
To be there when I need someone
To lend a helping hand.
I know that I can always count on you
To be there when I need someone
To truly understand.

…is many things: the invitations you give me even when I can’t accept; the caring thoughts you write that seem to come when I need them most; the sweetness felt when we hug; and gratitude for your kindness I feel but can’t fully express.

From “Beautiful Dreamer” by Stephen Foster
Beautiful dreamer,
wake unto me,
are waiting for thee;
of the rude world
heard in the day,
Lull’d by the moonlight
have all pass’d a way!

I love…
…how patient you are with me when I get off on tangents and just talk and talk. Thank you for your indulgence and the caring heart that has tolerance for some of my not so good traits.

Quoted frequently but written by an author unknown
You’ve got to take
The good with the bad,
Smile with the sad,
Love what you’ve got,
And remember what you had.
Always forgive,
But never forget.
Learn from mistakes,
But never regret.

I love…
…your simple sophistication that allows you to be ‘classy’, yet never appear to try to place yourself above others. It is an uncommon combination.

Attributed to many, but author is actually unknown
Being classy is NOT
about being stuck up,
but more so about
having a simply unique style
that will never be forgotten.
To be classy is to have respect;
respect for others,
respect for elders
and most of all respect for yourself.

I love…
…witnessing your determination to evolve mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Nothing takes more courage than exploring the depths of one’s inner most self and finding peace with what is found.

Taken from “You” by Louis Untermeyer
In this mad world
of change,
Where everything
is sad and strange,
Where few know
what they mean,
or do
You are serene,
steadfast, true.
