Always

Love always remains. The frailties of being human or the realties of life may separate people for a time or for all time, but if love was present between the two it never departs. LOVE always is.

Lyrics from the tune “Lovesong” by The Cure
5e327a77ec9631e664588e54fb7e8199However
far away,
I will always
love you.
However
long I stay,
I will always
love you.
Whatever
words I say,
I will always
love you.
I will always
love you.

Let It Find You

Do not be afraid. Love is fearless. Do not doubt. Love is trustworthy. Do not hesitate. Love rarely waits. Do not lose faith. Love is faithful. Do not question. Love is truth. Be patient and let it find you or love will hide from you eternally.

So Much More

Darling…
You have been missing from me my whole life. Your love now fills empty holes within I was barely aware of before. I am more; so much more than I have ever been before.

Seventeenth century English poet Richard Lovelace
clouds…I have
freedom
in my
love,
And
in my
soul
am free.
Angels
alone
that soar
above,
enjoy
such
liberty.

You Must Know

Calm your doubt. What we are sharing is real. To you I want to be the best man I have ever been. Love me with all your heart and your complete self; like I am loving you. You must know I’m ALL yours…

From “The Graveyard Book” by English writer Neil Gaimana psychedelic art 64
If you
dare
nothing,
then
when
the day
is over,
nothing
is all
you
will
have
gained.

Beyond Mere Externals

Sweetheart…
When we’re not together, I’m good. My life is rich. But when you’re near, I’m more than good; my life is richer. So completely you have seized my attention. So soon you have taken up residence in my heart.

Author and American Christian pioneer Ellen G. White
two-hearts-graffiti-love-carol-leighTrue love is not a strong,
fiery, impetuous passion.
It is, on the contrary,
an element
calm and deep.
It looks beyond
mere externals,
and is attracted
by qualities alone.
It is wise
and discriminating,
and its devotion
is real and abiding.

Please Don’t

My Love…
There is no controlling it; no denying it; no running from it. My heart beats in my chest, but is no longer mine. You are the mysterious thief who stole what I willingly gave.

From the song “Bleeding Out” by Wynter Gordon

A Madness that Cannot Be Undone

Baby…
The love I feel for you has been tested time and time again, yet my feelings have remained strong. Each challenge has shown me how strongly you are entrenched in my heart. I love you with a madness that cannot be undone.

Absolutely Certain

My Love…
We broke up. Months passed, but neither of us got over the other. Something strong pulled us back toward each other. We’re both cautious now of what might happen, but I know I love you. I’m absolutely certain of that.

One of my favorite writers, poets and philosophers, C. JoyBell C.
love on fire 01They say a good love is one
that sits you down,
gives you a drink of water,
and pats you on top of the head.
But I say a good love is one
that casts you into the wind,
sets you ablaze, makes you burn
through the skies and ignite the night
like a phoenix; the kind
that cuts you lose like a wildfire
and you can’t stop running simply
because you keep on burning everything
that you touch!
I say that’s a good love;
one that burns and flies,
and you run with it!

Love’s Remedy

My Darling…
Love knows no boundary; cannot be captured; nor can it be cast away. Once embedded, love becomes part of the very fiber that holds a beating heart together. Death only is love’s remedy; its antidote.

Quote by an unknown and anonymous writer
chains around my heartAsk me why
I keep on
loving you
when it’s clear
that you don’t
feel the same way
for me.
The problem is
that as much as
I can’t force you
to love me,
I can’t force
myself to stop
loving you.

Soul On Fire

Sweetheart…
There have been good times and damned difficult ones. Each in its own way honed what we share; shaping and coloring it into an enduring love. It’s not perfect; far from it. But as different as we are, we are perfect for each other.

Taken from the poem “When She Walks By” Patrick Possanza
2jbrwaxEDITSkin so soft;
Soul on fire;
She fills me with
Complete desire.
The way she moves,
The way she looks,
One glance at her
Was all it took.
When she walks by
People stare
At her radiant face
And her ebony hair.
She fills me with
Complete desire;
Skin so soft;
Soul on fire.
