Imperfection Perfection

I am too old to find interest solely in the surface and shell of you. With your loving heart, truthful soul, sparkling eyes and radiant smile I am mesmerized. It is within your imperfect perfection that I see the greatest beauty in you.

I’m Here

Into the great unknown we go with only one certainty: we want to be together. We have love and respect filled with determination. There’s passion and intimate friendship founded on honesty. I need know nothing else for certain, except you love me.

From “Eat, Pray, Love” by American author Elizabeth Gilbert

I love you.
I don’t care

to stay up
crying all
night long,
I will stay
with you.
There’s nothing
you can ever do
to lose my love.
I will protect you
until you die,
and after your death
I will still protect you

Love Will Paint the Surroundings

Let’s go somewhere beautiful where we can sit together and soak up what we see, hear and feel. It doesn’t matter where because as long we’re together; where we are will be beautiful. Love will paint the surroundings into a beautiful memory.

Love Me Still

My Darling…
All that I have been, am and will be is yours. All I ask is that you love me best in times when I deserve it least. No matter what I may say in anger, do in frustration or mistakenly behave, love me still and I will love you even more.

Father of the Indian independence movement, Mohandas Gandhi

Only Minutes Apart

Sweetheart…
Thank you for showing me such sweet tenderness. Being with you feels natural and good. I am excited to see you again, touch you and feel your lips on mine. Thoughts of you in my arms are sometimes only minutes apart.

Your Heart Matches Mine

Sweetheart…
Do you really, really love me? Do you put me ahead of all others? Do you think you will you always love me? I asked those questions and you said “yes” without hesitation. There is no greater joy than knowing your heart matches mine.

From “The Fault in Our Stars” by author, blogger & historian John Green

in love
the way
you fall
asleep:
slowly,
and then
all at once.

Your Smile Radiates

Sweet One…
Whenever I am with you, it is like having my emotional batteries recharged with joy. Your smile radiates into me. Your touch sends little shivers through my body. Your presence pleases my mind and your soul pours peace on mine.

If Love Was Enough

My Darling…
Have we come to the end of our road together or only a bend in the road? Must we part for a while so that one day we can appreciate each other more? Or, is it over? If love was enough, there would be no questions.

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.

Only Want You

My Darling…
You are the first person I have been in a serious relationship where I did not think maybe I’d be better off with someone else. There is no doubt what is in my heart. I love you. I want only you. I have no room for anyone else.

26671_XXX_v1-w2000narrowMy heart only beats for you,
And no one else,
I only want you,
And no one else.
When I’m with you,
I only see you.
When I’m in your arms,
I feel safe.
When I’m not near you,
My heart hurts for you
until were together again.
I love you like no other person,
You were my best-friend,
But then we became so much more.
And I don’t regret it,
Not even for a minute.
I Only Want You &
So Does My Heart.
From a poem by Veronica Centeno
