It’s Been Years Now

It’s been years now of this weaving back together and then drifting apart. In time, always difficult to keep going, and always far too difficult to ever completely stop. Sometime love just “IS”.

Written by “Unknown” Who Surely Walks the Path I Walk
St. Valentine's Day weaving heart + AlphaAt some point
you will realize
that you have done
too much for someone,
that the only
next possible step
to do is to stop.
Leave them alone.
Walk away.
It’s not like
you’re giving up,
and it’s not like
you shouldn’t try.
It’s just that you
have to draw the line
of determination
from desperation.
What is truly yours
will eventually be yours,
and what is not,
no matter how hard you try,
will never be.

Ready

 

My heart was broken, then shattered again and a third time, and more. I settled. I was hurt by staying where I shouldn’t have. I spent years alone. I learned. I healed. I grew. So by the time you came along I was ready to love and be loved.

To Risk Everything

Great kindness may be expressed by loving, but love itself offers none. Peace may be found through loving, but love specifically brings none. Fulfillment may come from loving, but love alone does not offer it. Love offers nothing but fertile ground for all the highest and lowest of feeling and emotion to grow.

American author and motivational speaker Leo Buscaglia

To love is to
risk not
being loved
in return.
To hope is
to risk pain.
To try is
to risk failure,
but risk
must be taken,
because
the greatest
hazard in life
is to risk
everything.

What an Adversary

My Dearest…
Miles apart, my mind wonders, “Does she really love me?” My heart answers quickly, “Yes, she does. She needs you and wants only you!”. Oh, what an adversary the thinking mind can be to a loving heart.

be able to look
deep into
your eyes
and into your
amazing heart
the same way
that I do–
you would have
no doubt at all
just how
very much
I truly do
love you.

Defying the Impulse

Sweetheart…
I promise I’ll stay with you in the toughest of times, even those when you’re not sure you want to be with me or when there are questions about you in my heart. NOTHING can stop my commitment to you.

????????????????????????????????????????Love is patient
and kind,
love is deliberate.
Love is hard.
Love is pain
and sacrifice,
it’s seeing
the darkness
in another
person and
defying the
impulse to
jump ship.

Do Everything In Your Power

My Love…
My mind’s babbling is an over protective burden. It’s logic says our relationship is unlikely to survive long-term. But to those ramblings my heart and soul screams, “You’re wrong! We’re going to have a great life together.”

1375799_253795414775295_226324192_nSomeday, you’re going to meet someone who drives you mad, who you’re going to fight with and laugh with. Someone who you will share your deepest darkest secrets and past with, who you’ll do insane things for, someone, who is going to turn your life upside down. And when that time comes, don’t ever let them go and do everything in your power to keep them.

Every Broken Piece

My Darling…
How much do you love me? Is it enough to make me the center of your life? Can you take care of me, be kind and give me your all? You are at the very core of my heart. Will you put me be at the center of what fills your heart?

when
someone
breaks your
heart
and…
you still
Love
them
with
every
broken piece.

Without Expectation

My Darling…
I catch myself wanting proof and evidence of your love, but that is loving with the expectation it will be returned in kind. I am learning to hope and even pray for your love, but to accept it is your choice, ‘if and how’ you love me.

American author, motivational speaker and professor Leo F. Buscaglia

always
bestowed
as a gift –
freely,
willingly,
and without
expectation
We don’t
love to
be loved;
we love
to love.

Descended Upon Me

My Sweet…
My mind does not understand, yet my soul knows. My senses are confused, yet my body is certain. My emotions are swirling, yet my heart is at peace. Such is the love that has descended upon me and taken over.

French romantic poet and novelist Victor Hugo
Lconfused_love__by_aleth00-d4jlv22ove is
a portion
of the soul
itself,
and it is
of the
same nature
as the
celestial
breathing
of the
atmosphere
of paradise.

Repaid By Love Alone

Love…
…is a paradox when two have given their heart to one other. If each one loves the other until it hurts, there is no more hurt, only more love. Love is repaid by love alone.

Nineteenth Century Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde

and not

what
lies
at the
