Show You Instead

My Love…
Often I try to find words to convey the depth of my feelings. Try as hard as I do, my discovery has been there is no language that can adequately express how much I love you. So I’ll keep trying to show you instead.

From “So Much Closer” by America Novelist Susane Colosanti
10Love-Sweet-LoveOne of the most
amazing things
that can happen
is finding someone
who sees everything
you are and won’t let
you be anything less.
They see the potential
of you. They see endless
possibilities. And through
their eyes, you start to see
yourself the same way
as someone who matters.
As someone who
can make a difference
in the world.

Most Dearly Held

…forms a sort of single-mindedness within its bearer. All though the day’s waking hours and dreams in the night, one’s beloved becomes the single most thought about, most wished and most dearly held contemplation.

Same Thing At the Same Time

…has me dreaming about you. Most every night there are moments I share with you while sleep has its grip on me. Some feel very real. I suspect you are dreaming the same thing at the same time I am.

Grateful For the Surprise

…is alive sparkling within as sleep comes to find me, when I wake and through each day. As the mystery of “us” unfolds there is fear, but joy is stronger. You came to me unexpectedly, but I am deeply grateful for the surprise.

old-love editI will love you always.
When your hair is white,
I will still love you.
When the smooth softness
of youth is replaced
by the delicate softness of age,
I will still want you.
When your face is full of the lines
of every smile you have ever smiled,
of every surprise I have seen flash
through your eyes, when every tear
you have cried has left its mark
upon your face, I will treasure you
all the more, because I was there
to see it all. I will share your life
with you and I will love you
until my last breath.

Seems Somehow Possible

…brings me strength and solace whenever my thoughts are focused in your direction. I doubt less. I hope more. My imagination is richer; inspiration grander. Even the near impossible seems somehow possible.

From Winnie The Pooh, the fictional bear created by A. A. Milne

Until We Meet Again

…is thinking of you in the morning after I first get up and at night as I am going to sleep. It is a casual thought of you at lunch time and when driving home. At random moments all throughout my day you are on my mind, always hoping you are well and going good.

Writer and spiritual leader Rabbi Julius Gordon
So until we meet again,
I am thinking of you
I love you;
I wish you were here…
In my arms.

To Recognize Love

I love…
…that when I wake up in the morning a thought of you finds me soon after. Mentally I say “good morning” every time with hope the day is kind to you.

Contemporary Slovenian poet and artist Jaka Zeleznikar
It’s so easy,
To think about Love,
To Talk about Love,
To wish for Love,
But it’s not always easy,
To recognize Love,
Even when we hold it
In our hands.”

The Splendor of Fire

I love…
…the feeling of anticipation I get each time to see you again after we have been apart: a gentle longing that tastes sweet and good.

An old Irish Blessing for a Loving Couple
May you both be blessed
With the strength of heaven,
The light of the sun and the
Radiance of the moon,
The splendor of fire,
The speed of lightning,
The depth of the sea,
The swiftness if wind,
The stability of earth,
And the firmness of rock.

Right There By Your Side

I love…
…when I am away how I miss you.  It is a kind of hunger that grows until sated by your presence when I see you again

Missing someone
Isn’t about how long
It has been since
You’ve seen them
Or the amount of time
Since you’ve talked.
It’s about that very moment
When you find yourself
Doing something
And wishing
They were right there
By your side.
