…is patient and tolerant. It allows one to give the other person time and space to work through things alone. Standing by while ready to offer support and help at any moment is one of the greatest illustrations of love (you have proven it to me).

By German poet Rainer Maria Rilke
Once the realization
is accepted
that even between
the closest human beings
infinite distances continue,
a wonderful living side by side
can grow, if they succeed
in loving the distance
between them
which makes it possible
for each to see the other
whole against the sky.

…more than anything makes one sure of their feelings. Even with uncertainty about being loved in return, a heart filled with adoration renders its owner unable to hear encouragement or advice about the subject of their love. Love is not only blind, but it’s deaf as well.

From “An English Woman’s Love Letters” by Laurence Housman
When I think of you
I never question
whether what I think
would be true or false
in the eyes of others.
All that concerns you
seems to go on a different place
where evidence
has no meaning or existence…

…is a spark in my heart from knowing someone cares about me as I really am. You know of the light of my goodness and of the darkness of my wickedness yet gladly, still we “are”.

From “Divan-e Shams” by Rumi translated R. A. Nicholson
Through Love
all that is bitter will be sweet.
Through Love
all that is copper will be gold.
Through Love
all dregs will turn to purest wine.
Through Love
all pain will turn to medicine.
Through Love
the dead will all become alive.
Through Love the
king will turn into a slave!

…is the knowing you’ll be there if I need you to comfort me in times of sadness, care for me if I am sick, encourage me if I am down or just sit quietly with me and let time pass.

Thought by German philologist Max Muller
A flower
cannot blossom
without sunshine,
and man
cannot live
without love.

…is best when it’s mellowed to be deeper than a relationship’s start when selfish need often dominates. When over time trust, compassion and mutual understanding come together to form a foundation something truly special arrives; a true, honest and loving friendship.

Irish novelist and poet C. S. Lewis
is born
at that moment
when one person
says to another:
You too?
I thought
I was
the only one.”

…is the peace of mind from knowing you will be there to help if I ask. Whether for ten minutes, a whole day or longer I know without doubt I can depend on you.

Taken from a poem of an unknown original source
I know that I can always count on you
To be there when I need someone
To give their best advice.
I know that I can always count on you
When I need someone
To help me make things right.
I know that I can always count on you
To be there when I need someone
To lend a helping hand.
I know that I can always count on you
To be there when I need someone
To truly understand.

I love…
…that we willingly take on the unsettled times in our relationship and do our best to share with each other what is going on; how we feel; what we need and hope for. It’s not always easy, but we grow by doing it.

American singer, actress, and TV personality, Dinah Shore
is a part of your life,
and if you don’t share it,
you don’t give the person
who loves you
enough chance
to love you enough.
