You Only

All is well, but I miss you with an aching hunger to be near you. Only you can sate my yearning; only you my love. All the sweeter the time will be when next I hold you again.

Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer Kahlil Gibran

Soaking Joy

Sweetheart…
As the rain begins to fall tonight I am comforted knowing you hear the same thunder I do. Listening to the raindrops fall makes me feel closer to you. I seem to find you these days in just about everything of beauty.

Unfold In Reality

My Dear…
You have settled into my near constant thoughts, yet we hardly know each other. There is a familiarity about you that whispers I have known you before. Maybe it’s only a dream trying to unfold in reality.

No Matter

My Love…
Sharing our deepest self with each other comes so easy. What a marvel it is to be so completely known and accepted by another. Destiny brought us together. Life keeps us apart. No matter. You are the love of my life.

From “Defiance” by American writer C.J. Redwine
bridegroomNo matter
what
has happened.
No matter
what
you’ve done.
No matter

you will do.
I will
always
love you.

Daytime Without Sunshine

My Darling…
If no strings and expectations is the only way for us to be together, I can do that. Life without you is like daytime without Sunshine. Find me in the shadows. Come make the day bright again.

absolutely,

positively,

no strings attached,
beyond any doubt,

you.

Magic In Your Eyes

Sweet One…
Could you be her; “the one” for the rest of my life? Why do I feel this strong pull toward someone I barely know? I am enticed by simply the possibility. Just looking at your photo I find magic in your smile and adventure in your eyes.

From the book “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert
mystery-woman 01Happiness is the consequence
of personal effort.
You fight for it,
strive for it,
insist upon it,
and sometimes even travel
around the world looking for it.
You have to participate relentlessly
in the manifestations
of your own blessings.
And once you have achieved
a state of happiness, you must never
become lax about maintaining it.
You must make a mighty effort
to keep swimming upward
into that happiness forever,
to stay afloat on top of it.”

Lots of Fun

Sweetheart…
You make me laugh. I love your horsing-around side even when I am the butt of your kidding around (have you noticed I usually get even?). We have lots of fun! We’re in love and I have never been happier.

sure they won’t
laugh if you trip.

More than Yesterday

Sweetheart…
Our love is safe when we are apart. Distance fashions the heart to be stronger when the love contained therein is real and true. I love you more than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow.

separates two hearts
that really care,
for our memories
span the miles
and in seconds
we are there.
But whenever
I start feeling sad,
because I miss you,
I remind myself
how lucky I am
to have someone
so special to miss.

Like Butter On Toast

My Love…
I know you, but have no first-hand knowledge. I feel you near, but far away. I have held out for a long time always believing in something I can’t explain. As sure as sunrise you’re waiting for me… somewhere.

From “Water for Elephants” by American/Canadian writer Sara Gruen
live-your-dreams-my-dream-is-23986887-1600-1200I want her
to melt
into me,

I want to
absorb her
and walk
around
for the rest
of my days
with her
encased
in my skin.

If You Ever Need Me

My Love…
Even though you are far away in miles and time, you are always with me. Long ago my loving you became as natural as my heart beating. I couldn’t change that if I wanted to… and I don’t want to.

“If You Ever Need Me” by poet, writer and singer Becky Williams
tumblr_m9xvmxLuXC1r60a71o1_1280EDITIf ever you need me,
I’ll be right here,
To chase away the sadness,
And wipe away a tear.
If ever you need me,
I’ll be two steps behind,
To follow in your footsteps,
And hear what’s on your mind.
If ever you need me,
You’ll never have to fear,
That your presence isn’t important,
And your love isn’t dear.
If ever you need me,
I’ll always be around,
To bring back the laughter,
Where deep in your heart it’s found.
You’ll never have to worry,
For I’ll always be here,
To chase away the sadness,
And wipe away a tear.
