The Best or Worst

My Darling…
Going through love’s difficult times can shape a relationship to a beautiful reflection or shatter it into pieces that never fit again. Trouble can bring out the best or worst in us. Which one will be decided by our choices and actions.

American poet and author Coco J. Ginger

superstition21LONGI love you,
with no beginning,
no end.
I love you as you
have become
an extra necessary
organ in my body.
I love you as only a girl
could love a boy.
Without fear.
Without expectations.
Wanting nothing in return,
except that you allow me
to keep you here in my heart,
that I may always know
your strength, your eyes,
and your spirit…

No Regrets

Babe…
No matter what, I love you. Nothing can change that. Loving you is the best, most difficult thing I have ever done. I don’t regret a minute of it nor will I ever.

Stronger Than Ever

My love…
A thing, when broken and put back together is never as strong as before. People, on the other hand, become stronger when they recover from damage. And so it is with us: what was broken is now stronger than ever.

Taken from “Stronger Than Ever Before” by Imran Khan
22bSo many problems,
loads of difficulties,
but your love
in my heart,
is stronger
than ever before.
The promise
I made with you,
that I will
never leave you,
that promise,
is stronger
than ever before.

If Love Was Enough

My Darling…
Have we come to the end of our road together or only a bend in the road? Must we part for a while so that one day we can appreciate each other more? Or, is it over? If love was enough, there would be no questions.

to get.

Please…

My Love…
Don’t give up. Hang it there. I am in this relationship for keeps. Whatever it takes, I’ll be here. Please forgive my shortcomings and I will let yours fade. Let’s stay in love and be happy. Please…

Betting On Our Joy

My Love…
Either we are headed toward the unfolding of a beautifully rich love story or a genuinely horrific tale of heartbreak. The deciding scale is strongly tipped toward your actions and choices. Joy or grief? I’m betting on our joy!

All the Way

Sweetheart…
It will take you at twenty years or more to realize how much I love you. My heart carries you within at a depth that’s rare, strong and lasting. I love you all the way.

Highly Valuable

My Dearest…
It’s the ups and downs that continue to prove our love. Whatever challenges come, we work through them quickly because we want to; because we need to; and because our love is cherished and held highly valuable by both of us.

Indian poet and greeting card verse writer Ritu Ghatourey
ecardu7a8f7_18694Love isn’t always perfect.
It isn’t a fairytale or a storybook
and it doesn’t always come easy.
Love is overcoming obstacles,
facing challenges, fighting
to be together, holding on
and never letting go.
It is a short word,
easy to spell, difficult to define, a
nd impossible to live without.
Love is work, but most of all,
love is realizing that every hour,
every minute, every second
of it was worth it because
you did it together.

To Love Another

My Darling…
Loving you is not easy sometimes. We are unlike in many ways. I knew from the start there would be challenges. Just know the place you have in my heart is permanent and I’ll walk with you through anything. I love you.

Bohemian-Austrian poet and novelist Rainer Maria Rilke

being to love
another:

of our tasks;
the ultimate,
the last test
and proof,
the work for
which all other
work is but
preparation.
