Another Twenty-Four Hours

My Darling…
To many it’s just another day, but for me it’s another twenty-four hours we get to be in love. Thank you for sharing the good times and being here with me in the difficult ones.

From “The Truth About Forever” by Sarah Dessen

never a time
or place
for true love.
It happens
in a heartbeat,
in a single

All Over Me

My Love…
At a glance people don’t notice the difference. They don’t see how much happier and more content I am now. Without looking closely the subtle signs of how much loving you has changed my life are not evident, but they are there.. everywhere… all over me.

From the poem “Because Of You” by Amy S. Bedford
2jbrwaxEDITBecause of you
my world is now whole,
Because of you
love lives in my soul.
Because of you
I have laughter in my eyes,
Because of you
I am no longer
afraid of good-byes.
My love for you is pure
boundless through
space and time,
it grows stronger everyday
with the knowledge
that you’ll always be mine.

When Your Skin Meets Mine

My Love…
There are those special times when the only witnesses are you and me. By candlelight or in the daytime; in bed or in the kitchen, wherever we are when your skin meets mine is sweeter than the time before.

From “I Love Your Smile” by American poet Ronnie Doe
1310356149485_fI love
your charms,
your loving arms
How you
hold me
so tenderly
I love
the bliss,
the happiness
When you’re
making sweet
love to me.

To Love Being Loved

… taught me to love myself. I always thought I needed to be more of this or less of that, but your love is accepting of me just as I am. You’ve helped me become a better man; more confident, self-assured and capable of loving.

American author, motivational speaker and a professor Leo F. Buscaglia
tumblr_lvug3kf4Gn1qe5zv7o1_500squareA loving
is one in which
the loved one
is free
to be himself,
to laugh with me,
but never at me;
to cry with me,
but never
because of me;
to love life,
to love himself,
to love being loved

Restless Without Each Other

…causes me to sometimes lose track of where I end and you begin. That’s what happens when two souls were meant to be together. Once they touch love together the lovers will be forever restless with out each other. Even their loneliness for one another is full of life.

From “100 Love Sonnets” by Chilean poet Pablo Neruda
4264611133_b9cfdd8566_zI love you without
knowing how, or when,
or from where.
I love you simply,
without problems
or pride: I love you
in this way
I do not know
any other way
of loving but this,
in which there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand
upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep
your eyes close.

Love Will Melt All Hearts

…can not heal your aches and pains, but I hope your knowing what is in my heart makes them a little easier to bear. “You” matter to me more than I have words to explain!

American author and magazine publisher, Og Mandino
I will greet this day with love in my heart.
For this is the greatest secret of success
in all ventures. Muscles can split a shield
and even destroy life itself
but only the unseen power of love
can open the hearts of man.
And until I master this act
I will remain no more than a peddler
in the marketplace. I will make love
my greatest weapon and none on who I call
can defend upon its force…
my love will melt all hearts liken to the sun
whose rays soften the coldest day.

One Moment Longer

I love…
…your soft hands and the gentle way you touch me. Such tenderness can only come from a deeply kind and compassionate heart.

Taken from “ONE MOMENT LONGER” by Jim Nolan
May I embrace you
One moment longer
So that hugging
Becomes Holding.
May our brief touches last
One moment longer
So that aching
Becomes Caressing.
May my heart be in the presence
Of your heart
One moment longer
So that longing
Becomes Loving.
