Imperfection Perfection

I am too old to find interest solely in the surface and shell of you. With your loving heart, truthful soul, sparkling eyes and radiant smile I am mesmerized. It is within your imperfect perfection that I see the greatest beauty in you.

wasn’t suppose
to be perfect.
You were meant
to see the cracks
in her soul
and fill them
with what you
have and she
was meant
to see yours.
Together you
would be
complete

Love Will Paint the Surroundings

Let’s go somewhere beautiful where we can sit together and soak up what we see, hear and feel. It doesn’t matter where because as long we’re together; where we are will be beautiful. Love will paint the surroundings into a beautiful memory.

14th century Persian mystic and poet Hāfez

Home

Honey…
“I’m home”. That’s how I feel in your arms; safe, cherished and loved. There is no better or stronger sense of belonging that I have known.

From “Home Sweet Home” by American novelist T.A. Chase

holding-hands (1)Home is
my heart
in your
hands,
and yours
in mine.
Nothing
will ever
change that.

Why?

Sweetheart…
My eyes see color in more luscious shades; everything I touch has a richer texture; smells of the season are unusually delightful; music is more pleasing to hear and even food tastes better. Why? Love, my darling; our love…

Love Me Still

My Darling…
All that I have been, am and will be is yours. All I ask is that you love me best in times when I deserve it least. No matter what I may say in anger, do in frustration or mistakenly behave, love me still and I will love you even more.

Father of the Indian independence movement, Mohandas Gandhi

The Way I Need

My Darling…
When you hold my hand… When you kiss me… When you hold me… When you forgive me quickly… When you look into my eyes… When you touch me… and in a hundred other ways I feel it. You love me the way I need to be loved.

From “I Love the Way You Love Me” by Lovely Goyal

Melt Together

My Love…
We are fodder for a fire, that burns brightly yet does not incinerate; that grows hotter with time, yet does not obliterate; that protects with its heat; that melts two into one entity as certainly as crayons melt together on a hot stove.

Elizabeth Barrett to Robert Browning June 26, 1846
0-2aShall I always
think the
same of you,
you asked
yesterday.
But I
never think
the same
of you;
because
day by day
you look greater
and feel dearer…

The Remedy For My Yearning

My Love…
You are far, far away, yet right here with me. Your love is a poultice for my ache; the remedy for my yearning. Knowing how you feel in your heart about me brings joy that can not be described in words.

The Way I Need to Be Loved

Sweetheart…
Your words, spoken and written, have a way like those of no one else to dance lucid and vivid in my heart, mind and soul. I can close my eyes and literally feel you through what you express. Oh, my Darling… you love me the way I need to be loved…

No Matter

My Love…
Sharing our deepest self with each other comes so easy. What a marvel it is to be so completely known and accepted by another. Destiny brought us together. Life keeps us apart. No matter. You are the love of my life.

From “Defiance” by American writer C.J. Redwine
