The experience of my heart urges caution. My memory says be careful. My spirit says “lean in” and let yourself be known. I hesitate. Yet there is something about you that attracts me like iron to a magnet.
German-born poet, novelist, and painter Hermann Karl Hesse
…usually arrives unpredictably like a rain shower. No matter how much you try to anticipate its arrival, you don’t really know it has begun until love is upon you.

Love sparkles when new and glistens softly when it’s old. Love is swift and urgent with its coming yet grows patient and gentle with time. Love is craziness at its beginning, then a most peaceful insanity when it lasts.
German psychologist and humanistic philosopher Erich Fromm
I need you.
I need you
I love you.
Whatever becomes of us on the path ahead, know you have touched my soul with your aliveness, my mind with your intelligence and my heart with every embrace. Never will come a time I do not gratefully hold dear what I know is precious.

A real lover
can’t be stolen.
When I think of you my heart feels like when it was young before the scarring of heartbreak. I am blessed by your presence there. So easily you glided past my habitual walls and have taken up emotional residence within me.
Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer Khalil Gibran

Whenever I am with you, it is like having my emotional batteries recharged with joy. Your smile radiates into me. Your touch sends little shivers through my body. Your presence pleases my mind and your soul pours peace on mine.
From “Safe Haven” by writer and Film Producer Nicholas Sparks
Or even when
All she knew
was that right
here and now,
and she could
the same way.
I love you is only eight letters and hardly enough to express how I feel about you. When I say those three words I am telling you that my whole world revolves about you my Darling.
You’re the thought
that starts each morning,
the conclusion to each day.
I envision you in all that I do,
and everything I say.
You’re the smile on my face,
the sparkle in my eye.
the warmth inside my heart,
the fullness in my life.
You’re the dimple in my cheek,
the constant tingle in my soul.
the voice that makes me weak,
You’re the one who shields the cold.
You’re all I’ve wanted,
all that I need.
You’re all I dream of,
You mean so much to me.
In the early morning light sometimes I watch you sleep. All the curves of your face I study trying to memorize every detail without success. In those moments you touch me deeply without lifting a finger.
From “You Are” found at http://beccas-corner.tripod.com/id13.html
You are the whisper
on the wind.
that never ends.
You are the soft
and gentle caress.
You are the love
I feel your warmth
and your fire.
It’s only you
I thought my love for you was as big as it could get, but I was wrong. Sharing life with you everyday has filled my heart beyond what it ever could hold before. You are the BIG love of my life.
From K.D. Lang song “Big Big Love” by Wynn/Carroll
Oh can’t you feel
my love a’growin,
Can’t you feel it,
Ain’t it showin,
Oh you must be knowin,
I got a big big love.
It’s not the type
to be concealing,
It’s the type to be revealing,
Oh, you must be feeling,
I got a big big love.
This is not infatuation,
It’s true love’s sensation,
It’s not my imagination,
I got a big big love For you.
We have our ups and downs, but the good far outweighs the other. There is a rare magic at the center of the love we share. Just seeing your face when we’ve been apart brings delight to my soul and to get a hug soon after is sheer joy.
From an internet post by a writer identified as Amy Clarkson
It’s hard to explain the meaning of love,
so here it goes:
love is that strong feeling you have
in your heart when you’ve fallen
for someone, it feels like something
needing to burst out of your chest
because it’s so uncontrollable,
being apart from them even
for a matter of hours is tough,
because without them in your presence
you don’t feel as safe as you do
when you’re with them, every time
you see them smile it makes you
light up inside, whenever they tell you
they love you it makes you feel like
the luckiest person in the world,
just knowing someone feels
the same way about you
as you do for them,
is the most amazing feeling
and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
