My Darling…
Still I am astounded. When first you came into view, I knew you, yet you were a complete stranger. Still you were so familiar; so known to me. Is it no wonder that I fell so easily? It feels like you have always been in my heart.

Canadian writer and poet, Christy A. Martine

my days
for you,
the crowds
for your face.
I stopped
the moment you
recognized me,
as you
my soul
with your gaze.

In all the words I’ve said and written, there has yet to be a time the love within me was accurately conveyed. No words can approximate what grows in my heart. Let me hold you while we drift to sleep so I can express what is impossible to speak.

From “The Love of an Unknown Soldier”by an Anonymous Writer

are always inadequate:
it’s the touch
of live hands,
of lips pressed
to lips
that count.
I want to
hold you
and say nothing.

I never imagined I’d feel the sweetness of a boyhood first kiss a second time. You have taught me that magic of long ago was never lost. It was within waiting for your arrival.

German-born Swiss poet, novelist, and painter Hermann Karl Hesse

I felt something
melt inside me
that hurt in
an exquisite way.
All my longings,
all my dreams
and sweet anguish,
All the secrets
that slept deep
within me came awake,
Everything was
transformed and
Everything made sense.

As the rain begins to fall tonight I am comforted knowing you hear the same thunder I do. Listening to the raindrops fall makes me feel closer to you. I seem to find you these days in just about everything of beauty.

Dear Lady…
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

My Love…
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
woman-sleeping-elev8You are the whisper
on the wind.
The love
that never ends.
You are the soft
and gentle caress.
You are the love
and tenderness.
I feel your warmth
and your fire.
It’s only you
I desire…

Every sweet moment we share brings us closer. Every challenge we overcome bonds us tighter together. Life without you no longer makes any sense. The melody of my life would lack harmony without you.

From the song “Love Is Like a Song” by Hanna Pakarinen
4581978846Our love is like a song
That we can sing together;
Sometimes we get it wrong;
It really doesn’t matter;
There’s nothing else so true
As the melody in you;
Just knowing that you’re there,
Just knowing we belong,
Our love is like a song.
We sing it over and over
Cause that’s the way it goes
The highs and lows
In perfect harmony…
For life…
