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

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

Love…
…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.

and so,
never

Love…
…has been a healing salve for us. After all that’s happened, the depth of our respect and affection for each other is abundantly clear. I love you Sweetheart and being loved by you is the best thing that ever happened to me.

Love…
…does not require me to be in love to feel loved. I can relive good memories of old flames, fall head over heels with a character in a book or find joy in the happiness of others. Only with an already open loving heart can I ever fall in love again.

“Your Kiss” by contemporary poet Shelagh Bullman
your kissYour kiss is like a roller coaster ride up to the stars,
Or dancing on a moonbeam, a rocket trip to Mars;
Your kiss is like a thunderbolt striking to my heart,
Makes my body quiver and my senses fall apart;
Your kiss is like riding on the back of Angels wings,
Flying me over golden meadows, mountains & silver streams:
Your kiss is like a Love song without a single word,
And only in this heart of mine this love song can be heard;
Your kiss to me is Heaven, a Paradise of Love and Laughter,
Let’s kiss amongst the starlit skies for now and ever after.

Love…
…is made strong when it is allowed to grow slowly. Like a tree with deep healthy roots, with unhurried development the emotion is made strong and able to hold up under adversity. Love that sprouts quickly is usually just a weed that lives only for single season.

19th century English poet Robert Browning

Love…
…knows of imperfection, but cares little about it. What is good and virtuous is amplified. Flaws and deficiency are diminished. Through the eyes of love we lift another to their greatest height.
