Home

Honey…
“I’m home”. That’s how I feel in your arms; safe, cherished and loved. There is no better or stronger sense of belonging that I have known.

From “Home Sweet Home” by American novelist T.A. Chase

my heart
in your

in mine.
Nothing

change that.

A Hundred Cautions

Is it possible? Could it be true? Could I match someone so well she turns out to want only me as much as I want only her? Logic spins a hundred cautions. My heart trumps their appearance ten-fold with love.

By little known American writer, Michaela Ruiz
double sunset twoI think that we
were both
the same star
in the beginning
of the universe
and as the star
exploded
we drew apart.
Our atoms
merging
into two
different bodies,
but over time
our atoms
found a way
and found
each other again.

Why?

Sweetheart…
My eyes see color in more luscious shades; everything I touch has a richer texture; smells of the season are unusually delightful; music is more pleasing to hear and even food tastes better. Why? Love, my darling; our love…

Waited So Long For You

Sweetheart…
Without a hint of warning you appeared; a stranger, yet someone I already knew. This knowing beyond knowing is unnerving if I allow my thinking mind to ponder it. Yet, my heart is certain in its conviction to love you. I’ve waited so long for you.

American Catholic archbishop, Fulton J. Sheen

of action;

is “timing”…
it waits

to act,
for the right
principles
and in the
right way.

Say Nothing

Sweetheart…
In all the words I’ve said and written, there has yet to be a time the love within me was accurately conveyed. No words can approximate what grows in my heart. Let me hold you while we drift to sleep so I can express what is impossible to speak.

From “The Love of an Unknown Soldier”by an Anonymous Writer

are always inadequate:
it’s the touch
of live hands,
of lips pressed

that count.
I want to
hold you
and say nothing.

Beyond Mere Externals

Sweetheart…
When we’re not together, I’m good. My life is rich. But when you’re near, I’m more than good; my life is richer. So completely you have seized my attention. So soon you have taken up residence in my heart.

Author and American Christian pioneer Ellen G. White
two-hearts-graffiti-love-carol-leighTrue love is not a strong,
fiery, impetuous passion.
It is, on the contrary,
an element
calm and deep.
It looks beyond
mere externals,
and is attracted
by qualities alone.
It is wise
and discriminating,
and its devotion
is real and abiding.

Beautifully Imperfect

My Darling…
In your imperfections, I see beauty. In your scars, I see a strength to overcome. In your insecurity, I see wounds that are healing. In your hands, I see tenderness. In your face, I see love.

American actor, director, and writer Emilio Estevez

True Love

Darling…
This love is too mature to be only limerence, yet contains every associated symptom. It is too old to be only heat, yet burns constant, bright and warming like the morning sun. It is too lasting to be only light, yet all paths forward are obscured by its brightness. This love simply is and will be.

From “The Truth About Forever” by Sarah Dessen
mothThere is
never a time
or place
for true love.
It happens
accidentally,
in a heartbeat,
in a single
flashing,
throbbing
moment.

Completely, Absolutely and Without Question

Sweetheart…
What I felt for you long ago was so vibrant and real, but I could not have imagined then how it would mature and grow. The weight of my love for you today is beyond explanation. I love you completely, absolutely and without question.

From the song “Everlasting Love” by Robert Knight
flow-of-loveWhere life’s river flows,
no one really knows
Till someone’s
there to show
the way to lasting love.
Like the sun shines,
endlessly it shines
You always will be mine
it’s eternal love.
When other’s
love-light’s gone,
ours will
still be strong
We’ll have our very own,
everlasting love.

How Blessed I Am

Sweetheart…
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
WillRealLoveWait1It comes down to this…
Without
expectation,
With no
qualification,
Without
doubt,
With no
hesitation,
I can say,
“I love you”
With
absolute clarity
and unwavering
certainty.
