Secreted Away

My Dear…
You don’t know it yet, but in your suitcase are hidden a bunch of little hearts. I cut them out for you to find while away. They’re in your backpack too. Every one was carefully secreted away to say “I love you” from a distance.

From “The Gargoyle” by Canadian author, Andrew Davidson

No Contender Since

My Love…
You left me long ago. My mistakes were too big for you to forget. It’s been years since I held you or we kissed, but I cherish you as the love of my lifetime. There has been no contender since, nor do I believe there will ever be.

Love of My Life

Love…
…drove me crazy when I began to fall for you. I had trouble getting to sleep, but could not wait to dream of us each night. Back then even a few days of not seeing you was torture. You became the love of my life.

From “Peony in Love” by American novelist Lisa See

of him.

Made and Remade

Love…
…renews, reshapes and reforms within itself. Like skin sloughs off a human body and is ever being made new, the heart does likewise with its precious contents. Love must be made and remade or else it starts to wither and die.

Only Sensible Way to Love

Love…
…can be unavoidably insane when the emotion is deep and true. To carry a flame for a person one hasn’t seen in years and years is crazy. But I’d rather be thought an unwise and silly fool than to give up the love in my heart I carry for you.

French playwright, novelist, and screenwriter Françoise Sagan

of madness;
that which

madness;
that which
to me,
is the only
sensible way
to love.

Whispering Your Name

Love…
…began whispering your name to my heart soon after we first met. At first I did not listen, but in time the voice grew deep and strong, just like how I love you. Maybe one day we will be together.

A Beautiful Reminder

Love…
…is when you look into someone’s eyes and see everything you need reflected back to you. There is no mistaking it for something else. You’ll know beyond doubt when true love is present.

Mirrored Self Reflected Back

Love…
…cares nothing about our plans, where we think we’re headed or what choices we have made. Love seeks only its mirrored self reflected back from another heart and will defy all logic, rational thought and common sense to obtain it.

At One With Each Other

Love…
…is deep and true when one can realize being daily with the person of their affection is not necessary for love to survive. To bear that weight in one’s heart gladly at a distance is a certain mark of a mature and healthy love.

Victorian novelist Mary Anne Evans under pen name George Eliot

A Rush of Positive Feelings

Love…
…crescendos when we see each other after being apart for a few weeks. Anticipation becomes a sweet rhythm in the heart and the moment when we are together again brings a rush of positive feelings.

Best selling American author L. J. Smith
You don’t
love someone
because of their looks
or their clothes
or their car.
You love them
because they sing
a song only
your heart
can understand.
