When you hold my hand… When you kiss me… When you hold me… When you forgive me quickly… When you look into my eyes… When you touch me… and in a hundred other ways I feel it. You love me the way I need to be loved.
From “I Love the Way You Love Me” by Lovely Goyal
There is no meaning to be found beyond what I express. No amount of thought can figure out what was never spoken, expressed or done. Please accept what I say and what you see as the reality I live in. My heart is true.
Nineteenth Century New York writer Christian Nestell Bovee
Saying I love you sounds too simple. Saying you mean the world to me doesn’t say enough. There is no definition that could truly describe this love.
From “A Year From Wednesday” by James Browning
Our Love is
can be measured.
And more lasting
than our lives.
We are fodder for a fire, that burns brightly yet does not incinerate; that grows hotter with time, yet does not obliterate; that protects with its heat; that melts two into one entity as certainly as crayons melt together on a hot stove.
Elizabeth Barrett to Robert Browning June 26, 1846
Shall I always
same of you,
day by day
you look greater
and feel dearer…
You are far, far away, yet right here with me. Your love is a poultice for my ache; the remedy for my yearning. Knowing how you feel in your heart about me brings joy that can not be described in words.
American romantic writer and blogger James Browning
Time has caused what is in my heart to grow to healthy and strong. All others faded away over the years, but my feelings for you grew. My heart was once in my chest, but it’s yours now. Once given so completely it can not be taken away.
From the song “Old Friend” by Phyllis Hyman
I miss the way
through my hair
Those cozy nights
in your easy chair
I won’t let
turn you away
Few things do I unquestioningly know, but one constant never wavers: I love you. I know you are from the inside out to a depth most human beings never experience. How blessed I am to care so deeply and more so to be loved as deeply in return.
American romantic writer and blogger, James Browning
It comes down to this…
I can say,
“I love you”
Loving you is something I can’t stop. There is no controlling my heart. It has yearned for you for so long, the only song I sing is of you. Only a mighty love can survive separation and flourish within distance.
By American Romantic Writer and Blogger, James Browning
Brimming with joy;
An innocent wildness;
Anything less, intolerable.
To be untrue
To this great love
The greatest recklessness.
I love you
And for all time.
You own my heart.
Long it has been true;
Far longer it will be.
Your words, spoken and written, have a way like those of no one else to dance lucid and vivid in my heart, mind and soul. I can close my eyes and literally feel you through what you express. Oh, my Darling… you love me the way I need to be loved…
By American author, essayist, biographer and novelist Elizabeth Gilbert
…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
