Love Is the Cure

My Darling…
Each of us has a shadowed history we’re not proud of. Together we’re growing forward in a way that makes the past, truly past. Our love is the cure we each needed so badly.

same my love.
Your truth
will never
scare me away.
Our darkness
is the exact
same shade…
And that happens
to be my
favorite color.

It’s In Our Hands

My Darling…
I love you beyond the past. What matters is what happens now and in the future. Mistakes are behind us and forgiveness is in our hearts. What we’ve hoped for and dreamed of is in our hands. Hold on tight.

Img_1863 edit twoI have a daydream that keeps coming to me,
A dream of beauty, of love flowing free.
I sense you walking towards me, smiling,
Radiating with pure love, ever so stunning.
When I see you, my heart beats faster;
As you come close to me, I feel the thrill.
When you touch me, my heart stands still.
Then our lips meet, and my body ignites,
Our tongues caress, we reach new heights.
Your kiss fills me with passion beyond compare;
I ache with desire and my soul I bare.
Your fingers are magical and sweet,
As they find my fire and touch me deep.
It is something truly wonderful that we share.
I open my eyes again and realize
That this daydream is reality I recognize.
You are real, our love is real …
You are my dream come true, my dear,
And I am so happy with you, my angel.

A Mutual Unrelenting Determination

My Love…
Staying together takes courage and an unwavering desire to protect something precious. Challenges that can tear love to shreds will test us. Only a mutual unrelenting determination to make our love survive and thrive will prevail.

From the romantic comedy film “Little Manhattan”

This Rare Variety of Love

My Darling…
Swear you’re mine and then tell me again and again. I’ll reply with “I love you” echoed back a million times. “Forever and always” is this rare variety of love we have been blessed with.

From “Whenever, Wherever” by Shakira/Tim Mitchell/Gloria Estefan
We’re meant
to be together…
I’ll be there
and you’ll be near…
You’ve got me
head over heels..
You’ll never
have to wonder…
There’s nothing
left to fear…

You Are Teaching Me

My Darling…
Without my conscious awareness, my heart has been testing you. You have stood by me when I didn’t deserve it. By loving me through my crazy times, you are teaching me what true love is. Thank you Baby.

From a poem by a writer identified only as Amanda Nicole Martinez
Emotional-Scars-300x191editLove me
when I’m happy,
and even when I’m sad.
Love me
when I’m good,
or when I’m oh so bad.
Love me
when I’m pretty,
or if my face is plain.
Love me
when I’m feeling good,
or when I’m feeling pain.

Divinely Rich

Day by day our love grows stronger and we grow closer. Like a protective wall our feelings surround us. With our hearts connected we are safer than ever before. How divinely rich our loving is!

Early 20th century New York City spiritual leader Emmet Fox
Monicamike022 smaller2bThere is no difficulty
that enough love
will not conquer,
no disease that enough
love will not heal,
no door that enough
love will not bridge,
no wall that enough
love will not throw down,
no sin that enough
love will not redeem…
It makes no difference
how deeply seated
may be the trouble,
how hopeless the outlook,
how muddled the tangle,
how great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love
will dissolve it all.
If only you could love enough,
you could be the happiest
and most powerful
being in the world.

Deep and Unshakeable

My Darling…
At first it was a small love. As the years have passed it has grown larger and larger as we made it through every challenge thrown at us. This love for you has grown to be deep and unshakable.

Mexican television, theatre, and film actor Ricardo Montalban
Middle Age Sex - croppedTrue love
doesn’t happen
right away;
it’s an ever
growing process.
It develops
after you’ve
gone through
many ups
and downs,
when you’ve
cried together,
laughed together.

Deeply Into My Heart

My Love…
I’ve told you my dreams and my worst mistakes. My hopes are safe with you and you accept me in spite of my old wrongs from long ago. I have never dared to let someone see so deeply into my heart.

Irish novelist and short story writer Elizabeth Dorothea Cole Bowen

What Is In My Heart

My Love…
My determination has always been strong; my will a formidable force. With aim and purpose I sculpted my life to match my desire. Then I discovered something more powerful: loving you. By what is in my heart I’m being made over.

American poet, painter, author, and playwright E.E. Cummings
is the voice
all silences,
the hope
which has
no opposite
in fear;
the strength
so strong
mere force
is feebleness…

Bound Irretrievably

…is intertwined with life like an equation is to math: a reaction is to chemistry: like color is to art: like you are with me. It is there you will stay, bound irretrievably with my heart for all time.
